Per me è stata un'esperienza entusiasmante! Non avevo mai navigato prima e già penso ad imbarcarmi di nuovo. Tutto mi è piaciuto in questo viaggio, le persone affidabili, accoglienti, colte e allegre che ho incontrato, la goletta aurica da sogno, la meraviglia infinita del mare e delle isole Pontine. Anche le stenelle che più volte abbiamo avvistato!! Ringrazio davvero di cuore Silvia, Francesco e Alejandro e spero non mancherà un'altra occasione per navigare insieme.

Esperienza veramente BELLISSIMA, nonostante i pochi avvistamenti, ma in quanto tali son stati assaporati al massimo! Tutto é fluito alla perfezione, dentro e fuori la barca, nonostante momenti di pioggia e mare mosso. Oltre ai compagni di spedizione con cui si é creato subito un clima di armonia e cooperazione, un GRAZIE speciale a Joelle - la NS ricercatrice Whale Whatcher WWF - e a Nicola - il NS skipper - nn solo per la loro professionalità e attenzione ad ogni NS esigenza, ma soprattutto per la loro passione per il mare e i suoi abitanti che hanno condiviso con noi e ci hanno trasmesso. Lo considero un assaggio di altre esperienze future.

La guida whale watcher Joelle è molto competente, super entusiasta (ragazziiiiiiiii, stenelleeeeeeeeeee!!!) e sempre attenta alle esigenze del gruppo. Con il suo sorriso (tanto più smagliante quanto più numerosi sono gli avvistamenti!) contribuisce a creare un clima allegro e spensierato tra i membri dell'equipaggio. Lo skipper Nicola ci ha illustrato con grande chiarezza alcuni principi base dell'andare a vela e ci ha portato con grande competenza, equilibrio e simpatia, sintonizzandosi perfettamente con tutti i componenti del gruppo (ok, con gli ingegneri informatici particolarmente). Abbiamo avvistato due gruppi di stenelle e qualche tonno salterino. Consiglio molto questa esperienza, io continuerò a iscrivermi finche non vedrò una balena!!!

Everything you need to know about WWF research and whale watching cruises

What's the best time to board a WWF cruise and what are the best places for sightings?

In general, you can go on a WWWF research and whale watching cruise year-round. There are times that are more suitable to combine the cetacean sighting experience with the pleasantness of enjoying long, warm days.

During spring and autumn, weekends and long weekends are organized for research experiences that focus on the Italian coast, particularly in Sardinia, Liguria and Tuscany. In summer, in addition to weekly cruises to Italian destinations, cruises to Greece and the Balearic Islands are also added.

Does one need to have sailing experience?

Absolutely not. Anyone can board a WWF cetacean research and sighting cruise. Moreover there are no age limits and anyone can enjoy this experience: from the lone traveller, who wants to combine the pleasure of meeting new people on board with the thrill of experiencing cetacean sightings, to the family who wants to experience an adventure that is perfect for adults and children, to couples and groups of friends looking to relax, have fun and get in touch with nature.

The WWF research and cetacean spotting experience is a great way to experience the wonders of nature.

The love for the sea, its inhabitants and their protection represent a fixed point in the programming of WWF cruises, which is enriched with new travel formulas that combine the charm of a vacation in the most beautiful seas of our country with the possibility of living firsthand experiences related to research and conservation.
