Meet up with guide in the morning at Vila de Abrantes before continuing by car to Praia do Forte, where you’ll meet your whale watching crew. Fuel up with some coffee and watch a short safety briefing that also provides details about the whales.
Then walk for one mile (1.6 kilometers) to the beach along Praia do Forte and board an “escuna” one of the typical wooden boats of the Bahia region. Boarding the ship can be wet, so please bring a swimsuit.
Cruise for two miles (3.2 kilometers) off of the beach as you crew hunts for whales. With any luck you’ll encounter a few Humpbacks as they swim near the coast. You’ll spend the next 3-to 4 hours hunting for more sightings before heading back into land. Previous trips have had a 98% success rate. Upon returning to shore, you’ll have time to relax before returning to your original starting point.
