The skippers will make sure that your sail is comfortable and safe, the whale spotters will ensure that you don’t come back on land without seeing whales and dolphins. Our environmental information people will teach you a little more about the marine world, the world of the whales and dolphins and their home, the ocean.

Apart from the people we work with professionally at the moment, Cetáceos & Navegación has counted on other people who have helped selflessly at different times. They know who they are. Thank you.
