When you go on holiday you always ask people what they did they went to the same area as you are going because they want to know what is fun and different to do as a tourist. There is one thing I always recommend if it is relevant to the destination is whale watching.
I have been whale watching a number of times and every time it is different but the feeling of seeing a beautiful gentle giant in the sea is always the same – a glorious feeling. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of seeing a whale appear from the deep dark sea and even just seeing a tale fin really makes it all worth while.
There are many places around the globe that you can pay to do whale watching and the people that are in charge of them are usually really loving and caring towards the mammals and make sure that they are always not too close so that they can live their life freely in the wild.
One of my favourite places I have been whale watching is the Azores, it’s the only place I have been lucky enough to see a blue whale and also the period in charge of the boat I went on in Horta really made sure they never got to close and would always make sure that the whales were fine at the distance we went.
One of my bucket list things to do is to head to Alaska in the season the whales are there to watch them in a their glory.
If you want to see a whale don’t go to sea world where they are treated badly go and pay to go out on a boat and see them in their natural environment.
