A world where cetaceans are free, oceans thrive, and communities care

We’re empowering communities to protect, celebrate and respect cetaceans in the world’s leading destinations for responsible whale and dolphin watching.

Responsible whale and dolphin watching

We verify and partner with responsible tour operators who offer world-class whale and dolphin watching experiences, with an emphasis on animal welfare and sustainability.
