Tourists and locals who keep on coming back to see the whales have an uplifting experience which makes them feel inspired and increase their longevity every time the whales appear just next to the boat. Everyone's excitement just can't be contained and see themselves screaming with satisfaction! SEASIR has been organizing whale watching trip since 2005. And each year, our team has spotted and successfully recorded 99% of whale appearances. With the use of an advanced equipment like sonar and radar by our naturalist on board, we offer you a unique experience that is worth reminiscing.
