Viking Explorers – Across the Atlantic 2018

Do you remember our partner 8 Islas? Have a look at their new adventure!
They organize a transatlantic crossing with 15 boats: Viking Explorers – Across the Atlantic 2018. They set sail today and tomorrow (7-8th of January 2018) from Gran Canaria,  heading to Barbados with a quick stop in Cape Verde. This initiative has born among friends who wanted to cross the Atlantic, but quickly new partners appeared, becoming an event made for sailors and by sailors. During their journey, they will collaborate with the project Poseidon of the University of Las Palmas, and of course, as well with Sail & Whale!
We are very excited with Viking Explorers, as they will pass through low latitude areas, where whales are known to spend winter time.. Let’s see what they find!
Wish them fair winds and following seas!!

Empty the Tanks 2017

Yesterday, May 13th 2017, we have joined the international movement of Empty the Tanks Worlwide to calmly show our approach against whale and dolphin captivity.

Public awareness is raising, and a change in public attitude towards captive dolphins and whales is certainly happening. This is becoming visible every day all over the world. If we look back we have recently seen several dolphinariums closing, like Poland 2015, Finland 2016 or Barcelona 2016 among others. Several policies and regulations have been taken to fight against captivity: acrobatic performances have been banned in several countries all over the world, 20 european tour opperators have stopped the support of dolphins shows, new laws ban in France whale and dolphin breeding in captivity.

But shows continue on.. and it is still a long way to go.



Sail & Whale begins!


And finally Sail & Whale begins!! We would like to thank all the “ocean minded people” we recently met, who care about the ocean and its conservation, who are not afraid to “bring awareness into action” and who find a way to overcome science challenges “just with their will”. They all have definitely make this project born with energy and illusion.

Just say that we are happy to receive suggestions: every single one will be welcome!

We are also totally available to provide any kind of information.

And finally, if you want to collaborate, join us!
