Escaping the harsh winter, the whales migrate northwards in search of warmer and calmer waters in which to reproduce and nurse their young calves.
A designated area of protection stretches 87 miles down the coast from the South of the Island, in Florianópolis. The greatest concentration of whales is off the Southern coast, between the towns of Garopaba and Imbituba.
Your boat trip will usually take place as early as possible in the morning since the wind and sea are both calmer which makes observation easier. You will most likely embark at Garopaba or at Imbituba, depending on where the whales have been sighted most recently.
After the trip, there is an opportunity to visit the Whale Museum at Imbituba.
