Aboard the ship "Croix du Sud V", go to meet whales and dolphins from Sanary-sur-Mer. Enjoy a unique experience on the longest cruise we offer!

It is in the vicinity of the large marine trenches that we can observe the Blue and White Dolphin, the Bottlenose Dolphin, the Risso's Dolphin, the Pilot Whale, the Sperm Whale and finally, the second largest animal on the planet: the Fin Whale, the only resident whale in the Mediterranean.

Accompanied by naturalists and photographers from "Découverte du Vivant", we will combine emotion, knowledge and education by offering you one or two lectures on board. In addition, throughout the day, they will speak at the microphone to discuss the biology of all the species encountered. Like the Croix du Sud V, the naturalists are holders of the "High Quality Whale Watching" label, a guarantee of a sustainable and respectful observation of cetaceans.

The high abundance of cetaceans in the area has led to the creation of the Pelagos Sanctuary.

During this cruise, the opportunity will be given to observe other representatives of the marine fauna: seabirds, sunfish, loggerhead turtle, bluefin tuna, swordfish, Mediterranean sea devil...

For each cruise, a report in pictures is proposed free of charge by the professional photographers of Découverte du Vivant. This way, you will be able to fully enjoy the encounters without worrying about the souvenir photo.
