Morro de São Paulo Whale Watching
Every year humpback whales leave the icy waters near the Antarctic continent in search of warmer and calm waters, which are on the coast of Northeast Brazil.
This species of whale has no teeth, but large fins with which filter small shrimp to eat; this is something they only do in summer near the Antarctic. When the humpback whales are along the Bahia coast, it is possible to approach them - following a series of precautions - and observe some of their habits. It is common to find mothers with their offspring in shallow water, relatively close to shore.
Rota Tropical, in partnership with the Baleia Jubarte's Institute , has developed a whale watching tour in Morro de São Paulo for the months of August, September, and early October.
The initiative, besides being a very interesting whale watching tour, is also a way to contribute to the preservation of humpback whales - since part of the value of the trip is reserved for the institute. And, during the Morro de São Paulo tour, biologists will come together to collect scientific data.
