My passion for travelling the world to watch wild mammals started with a whale-watching trip to the Bay of Fundy in 1999. Since then I've seen almost 30 different species of cetacean (whale, dolphin and porpoise) in over 20 locations around the world.
A successful whale-watching trip depends on being in the right place at the right time with the right operator, so I've made this blog to share my experiences and help others plan their travels.

Cetacean species: Southern right whale, Heaviside's dolphin. Other wildlife seen: Cape fur seal, Cape porcupine, Cape rock hyrax, springbok, yellow mongoose, African penguin. Best time to go: July to November. Note: the usual tourist 'hot spots' are Lambert's Bay and Hermanus, to the North and South of Saldanha respectively - I was in South Africa as a conservation volunteer rather than as a tourist.
