WeWhale is excited to launch its latest destination for whale and dolphin observation experiences. The historic coastal city of Denia, on Spain’s Costa Blanca, plays host to the four new experiences, available now to book (until 31 October).  

The Denia coastline is a prime whale-watching destination in this region, with a wide range of marine life to be spotted including bottlenose dolphins, Risso’s dolphins, long-finned pilot whales, common dolphins and sperm whales. The second largest whale in the world, the fin whale, migrates along this coastline every year and is often spotted during the warmer months of the year. Cabo de San Antonio marine reserve, a protected area spanning 900 hectares, sits between Denia and Xabia/Javia.

WeWhale’s sailboat in Denia, ‘El Som Mar’, is 100% electric and ensures an immersive encounter with marine life. WeWhale boats are equipped with hydrophones and 360-degree cameras so that guests on board have a full and engaging experience.  

Founder of WeWhale, Janek Andre, said, “We are proud to launch Denia as our latest whale and dolphin watching destination, building on our successes in the Canary Islands. We believe that the only way to offer animal and eco-friendly observation tours is to remodel vessels to become silent and CO2 neutral boats. It’s been a joy to see ‘El Som Mar’ through this process to being 100% electric and it’s a pleasure to welcome guests on board to enjoy responsible whale and dolphin observation experiences.” 

The new experiences include both morning and sunset tours, and are available both as a shared group experience or as a private experience (where you can book the entire boat for a private journey with friends/family/workmates etc.) 

The WeWhale team is motivated to take guests out into the ocean in small groups, explaining about the ocean, the importance of its inhabitants, and bringing greater understanding to the world of whales and dolphins. The team actively contributes to ocean conservation efforts by utilising nets to clean up ocean garbage and by looking out for animals ensnared in fishing lines. Further, the team is surveying the marine area for any possible wildlife crimes such as harassment towards dolphin pods or whales. 

In addition, 7.5% of the net revenue from WeWhale experiences is donated to non-profit organisation, WeWhale Association, to help fund a range of dolphin and whale protection projects.
