The cruise

Departing from La Rochelle, set sail for a week spotting whales (and other cetaceans) at sea.

Your possible stops during this cruise

For this cruise, the skippers suggest heading towards the Bay of Biscay!
Pushing through the door to the Atlantic ocean, you will sail between the islands of Ré and Oléron and spend a number of days entirely at sea in search of these cetaceans, ending above the ocean abyss.
This is your chance to see luminous plankton, dolphins and maybe even pilot whales, sperm whales and rorqual whales!
