Whale Watching 101
It’s hard to go wrong when you’re out on the open water taking in the beauty of some of the planet’s biggest creatures, but there are things you can do to make sure your whale watching trip is everything you want it to be. Keep these tips in mind as you embark on a whale watching tour to have the best experience possible.
Follow the Instructions of the Crew
One of the most important things you can do on any whale watching tour is follow the instructions of the boat’s crew. The crew will give instructions to ensure that everyone stays safe on the tour, but their instructions are also helpful in making sure you get to enjoy every minute of your trip. They know the waters and where you are most likely to encounter a whale, so follow their tips for the best chances of seeing as much marine life as possible.
Keep Your Camera Ready
Whale sightings can be fleeting, so you could miss the big moment if your camera is not ready. Stay alert and ready to snap so you get a shot when a whale appears. If you have a camera with a zoom lens, bring it, as it will deliver the magnification you need for the best possible picture. Although you want to be ready to take a picture, remember not to spend the whole trip looking through the lens. Take some time to appreciate the scenery in the moment so you can truly savor the experience.
Choose a Reputable Whale Tour Company
Reputable whale watching tour companies put the safety of their passengers first. They are also knowledgeable about the area and the marine life in the region, and they adhere to all laws that are in place to protect the whales. Going with a reputable company will ensure that you have an enjoyable experience that is safe for both you and the whales.
