Brittany Ferries’ unique summer programme in conjunction with ORCA (marine mammal charity) of whale and dolphin watching cruises is now underway, with a range of departures taking passengers from the south coast on two-night voyages to Spain and back, passing through some of Europe’s best waters for spotting these fascinating animals, which can range in size from the harbour porpoise (roughly the size of a dog) to the Blue Whale – the largest living animal.
Forthcoming cruises will depart on 13 and 20 August, and 10, 17 and 24 September. Each cruise includes excellent wildlife spotting opportunities with guides, deck watches, and wildlife presentations. Cruises depart from Portsmouth and start from £170 per person. Visit www.brittanyferries.com/whale
