Lisbon ocean and coastal fronts proves to be a special place for several wildlife species. From a geographical point of view, it provides diverse habitats and ecosystems, thus promoting marine biodiversity so close to the portuguese capital. Guest who joined us on this Ocean Safari can better explain why:
Dolphin watching boat tours in Lisbon, which normally counts with dolphin sightings behond the Tagus river. This year, during August most of the sightings were still inside the river mouth. We now know the common-dolphins that frequently visited these waters were all from the same pod. It included several yearly newborn calfs.
Besides this regular sighted specie, we spotted other marine species, such as striped dolphins, blue-sharks, sunfish, whales and various seabirds.
Inspired by the World Animal Protection, we fight against captive dolphin tourism in aquashows. Dolphin and whale watching in the ocean must be done responsibly with professional and expert crew, sensitive to the different behaviour of the animals when approached by a boat.
Our customers also us helped collect garbage from the ocean, thus promoting ocean cleanup. It is imperative that all guests learn how they can help protect the oceans, that is why we promote environmental education on our boat tours in Lisbon.
If you have questions regarding Marine Biodiversity or Wild encounters, make sure to send us using our contacts, so we can address them as best as we can. Our guides and specialists will male sure you can gather the most important information, and hopefully join us on a quest along the Atlantic Ocean or the Tagus Estuary.
We believe a more sustainable approach of global tourism industry must answer the fight against biodiversity loss and threats associated, therefore we are sailing into a Blue Ecnonomy very soon on our Ocean Safari!
