Orcas/ Killer whales

You are here

July and August is when Orcas concentrate on the Moroccan side of the Strait and steal Bluefin Tuna from fishermen. During our three hour Orca trip near Tangier you will have great chances to enjoy watching the world’s longest delphinid. 

With a 95% success rate, we guarantee the sighting of at least one of the four resident species. Our Orca sighting rate is 70%. In the odd case that you don’t see any cetaceans, we give you to a second trip, free. If you see other cetaceans, but could not observe Orcas, we offer you a 30% discount on your next trip. 

For bookings and queries, please email info@birdingtarifa.es (we look our inbox several times per day) or call us 48 to 72 hours before departure at our office +34 650 46 10 41 / +34 633 539126. As the safety of boat activities depends on weather conditions, occasionally the trip must be cancelled due to excessive wind. We advise you to contact us one day before your trip..

We recommend bringing sunscreen, hat, coat and comfortable shoes. Motion sickness medication is also advisable for those prone to the issue.
