Practical info
Embark on an unforgettable adventure with our 4-hour excursion departing from the historic Genoa Porto Antico Calata Mandraccio. As we navigate the open sea, you'll have the thrilling opportunity to spot majestic creatures in their natural habitat. Our expert crew, accompanied by a seasoned biologist, will guide you through the research activity, providing fascinating insights into the behavior and habits of these incredible animals. Our excursions take place from April to October, when the weather conditions are ideal for a successful sighting. The quieter months leading up to the peak season are often the best times to spot these magnificent creatures, thanks to reduced shipping traffic. We cater to small groups, and our excursions are guaranteed to depart with a minimum number of passengers. Join us on Sundays in April, May, and October, or on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from June to September. Our departure from Genoa Porto Antico is at 13:00. Please note that our cetacean research excursions involve a patient and dedicated effort to monitor and observe these wild animals in their natural habitat. We can't predict exactly when or where we'll spot them, but the rewards are well worth the wait. The best days for sightings are those with calm seas and minimal wind, making it easier to spot the animals as they surface to breathe.
