Albany Region for the Dedicated Discoverers - Discover the Ocean Wilderness

'Dedicated Discovers' (those who want to discover something new) 

There is nothing like the feeling of being dwarfed by Southern Right Whales or having your breath stolen by a dancing dolphin. The anticipation and exhilaration is just about touchable…. standing on the edge of the boat, eyes focused and scanning the dark blue surface of the ocean for any sign of the of movement. Then, right in front of you, a Southern Right Whale lifts its face out of the water and stares at you! This is a humbling and awe-inspiring experience that you will remember and cherish for the rest of your life. When cruising along, heading back to the shore, you notice a few friendly dolphins jumping along with the boat. Their playful eyes watching you as they move effortlessly and gracefully through the light blue of the shallows. Albany offers whale and dolphin watching tours, which run year round.  (editorial Joslyn van Nieuwkerk)

They deliver a high quality nature based whale tour and educates the guests on the protection of the ocean and the creatures who call it home. All cruises are delivered with heart, passion and integrity. The quality of the experience is the key to Albany Whale Worlds success and is what makes them unique.
