Whale Whatching on board the AVENTURA from Fredericia

On a whale safari in The Little Belt, you and your family will meet the porpoise, one of the world’s smallest whales.

Aboard the ship, the view is divided into sections like a clock face, so it is important to be alert – and be the first one to see a porpoise’s dorsal fin when it pops out of the water. 

That’s when you shout: “Porpoise at 12 o'clock!” This means that everyone aboard is responsible for keeping a lookout – who will spot the most porpoises?

And in addition to seeing the porpoises, you will also be able to listen to them, if conditions allow.

When a suitable number of porpoises have been identified, those aboard are invited to listen closely. You’ll hear the clicking sound the porpoises make when they 'talk' to one another underwater. In the pilothouse, you get to be the helmsman and help the skipper sail the big ship and bring the passengers safely through the waves.

The skipper will show you how to steer the ship based on his commands. After the journey, you will be rewarded for your efforts with a nice diploma.
