During your stay

To discover
Safari whales megaptism: €45/person.
Sainte Marie Island is a hot spot to discover and observe humpback whales (megaptera novaengliae). From June to the end of September, you will have the chance to see groups of humpback whales (megapter) coming from Antarctica in the Canal de Sainte Marie.
The whale is a cetacean mammal about 14 meters long for a weight of about 30 tons depending on the individuals.
By boat, and with a small group ,you will have the opportunity with our partner to watch whales and you might be dazzled by their acrobatic prowess. They do extraordinary jumps out of the water .
Megaptism whales come from Antarctica to the Indian Ocean to replicate from June to October ,but they don't feed. They left the cold waters to meet, mingle, and put it down in the warm waters of the Canal de Sainte Marie. They have great pectorals and their chants play an important role in this sexual parade competition.
During the safari, you can meet moms and their whales and groups of several individuals. We chose our partner because he is respectful of the code of conduct when you observe the whales. Cetamada
