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

Marine mammals include a large group of animals from whales, dolphins and porpoises to seals, sea lions and walruses to manatees and dugongs as well as sea otters and even polar bears. All are considered among the most sought after species for wildlife watchers around the world. And as a result Royle Safaris has several trips all over the world which focus either solely or partly on the wonderful diversity of marine mammals.

Trips to the Arctic circle where polar bears, belugas and other cold water species can be seen are available as are trips to the tropics where breeding humpback whales and spinner dolphins frolic and perform incredible acrobatics seemingly for the sole purpose of enjoyment. We have many different options and showcase a huge diversity of the world’s marine mammals.

We also have the unique opportunity in some locations to even get into the water and swim with these wonderful animals, that is possible with belugas in Canada, Australian sea lions in Western Australia as well as many more.

It is not just the world’s seas and oceans which are home to marine mammals, in fact there are a few species who are found many hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles from the coast. The large river systems of South America and the Indian Subcontinent are home to river dolphins, which are also seen on various Royle Safaris Marine Mammal Watching Holidays.

Some of the below trips are dedicated Marine Mammal Holidays and some include certain aspects of the itinerary where marine mammals are targeted and there is a larger overall aim of the trip. So have a look below and see which trip to see various marine mammals is of best interest to you.

All these tours are available on other dates (subject to availability) than the dates listed. Please contact us to arrange a tour on a date which suits you.
