Whale Watching Holidays

All our whale watching tours, wildlife holidays and safaris all over the world are listed below:

Whether its the gentle giants of the oceans, the playful and inquisitive dolphins of the shallows, the elusive and intriguing porpoises, or the very secretive and rarely seen beaked whales; cetaceans have firmly set themselves as some of the biggest attractions in Eco-tourism around the world. So of course Royle Safaris offer a huge selection of whale watching holidays and tours all over the world. Our zoologist guides have carefully researched and planned each of our safaris and whale watching holidays so that we are in the right place at the right time for these beautiful creatures. In fact the director of Royle Safaris has a deep knowledge of cetaceans having worked in Scotland researching and rescuing dolphins, harbour porpoises and minke whales, as well as on an Indo-pacific bottle-nose dolphin project in Western Australia and in addition to this he wrote his dissertation in University on sperm whales, so your in excellent hands when you choose us.

We have whale watching holidays ranging from the famous beaching orcas of Argentina’s rugged Patagonian coastline; to the congregating white beluga whales whom gather in Churchill River, Canada, and use the freshwater to help remove dead skin and parasites; to days spent on the water on either the east of west coast of Scotland to find the best of British cetaceans or you can decide to come with us to Sri Lanka to try and find the largest animal to have ever lived…the blue whale.

So have a look below and if you want more information and our special whale watching holidays brochure don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.
