We have created a daily schedule which maximises everything the island and ocean have to offer. We start early and finish late, and in between, offer many different activities.
We have been looking for a location which will allow us to swim with Blue whales with as little boat traffic as possible.
Our secter spot is located along the Cetacean superhighway. This area is home to pods of Sperm whales, Risso’s dolphins, Cuviers beaked whales and during the months of October to December – over 90 Blue whales.
The area is also frequented by whale sharks and the illusive Dugong.
There is no whale swim industry in the area and we are now helping them develop safe and sustainable guidelines for interactions.
As always, we place huge emphasis on respect for the animals so swimming will only be done with whales which do not display any discomfort from our presence.
Spot x – Timor Leste
We will pick you up from the airport and drive to one of the bays where we hope to find a Dugong.
We will check into our hotel, have dinner and a briefing.
We will head to the boat after 6 and lift anchor around at 06:30.
We will spend around 7 hours out looking for whales and other interesting things.
Lunch on the boat or one a secluded beach.
In the afternoon, we will either explore the area or go for a snorkelling session.
Dinner in the hotel
