Whale watching is one of the most extraordinary and exciting activities you can experience in your life: we wish to share it with you all, transmitting our enthusiasm, passion, knowledge, and deep respect for Nature!

OUR TEAM: The COSTA BALENAE cooperative was established in Imperia, in the area of the “Pelagos Sanctuary” for the protection of Marine Mammals of the Mediterranean Sea, under the initiative of a team of biologists and naturalists with a long experience in marine biology studies, environmental education, teaching and ecotourism, in particular for what concerns Whale Watching.
