Whale Watching

Humpback whales visit the waters of Bom Bom Island between July and September

Visit the Island of Bom Bom, which is located in the Principe Island, in São Tomé and Principe to whale watch and see these magnificent creatures as they migrate from their summer feeding grounds in low latitudes to more tropical mating and calving areas.

The humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) is a Baleen whale ranging in size from about 40–50 ft and weighing approximately 79,000 lbs and is greyish in colour. Behold this amazing sight on one of our boats. If you haven’t had a chance to see one of the biggest mammals of the water world, you will hopefully get the opportunity to gaze at the wondrous humpback whales here.
