Mediterranean Whale Watching


If you are looking for something different to do, here’s an outing that fits the bill:

“Every Sunday, Decouverte du Vivant offers Naturalist Discovery Cruises aboard the boat La Croix du Sud V. During the nine-hour voyage you’re likely to see striped dolphins, bottlenose dolphins, Risso’s dolphins, pilot hales, sperm whales and the second largest animal on the planet, the fin whale.  You can also expect to encounter seabirds, sunfish, loggerhead turtles, bluefin tuna, bonito and swordfish.

The season opens June 9 and runs through October 20, 2013. Cruises depart from Sanary sur Mer in the Var at 9:30 am and return at 6 pm. Prices are 55€ (under 13), 66€ (students and teens), 78€ (adult) and on demand for groups. ”  For more info or to reserve, click here or call 06-10-57-17-11 or email to:

  1. Wow. I had no idea there was so much aquatic life off the coast of France. That’s amazing.

  2. Thanks for commenting – I hadn’t really thought of or heard of it before now – pretty surprising.

    I just had twins and was up late at night checking out my favorite food blog. For some reason I stumbled on to yours. It was very nice to look through. Living on the French Riviera sounds so peaceful to me. But I do love to cook, so that brings me peace also. I will continue to look at your blog. Btw, the cooking blog that motivates me is John Contratti’s Cooking With Mr. C. on WordPress. Thanks. Fran

    • Congratulatons, Fran! My daughter also has twins, so I do understand the being “up late at night” – thanks so much for visiting my blog too. I just cooked lunch yesterday for my French family and will be posting about it (with recipes) soon – stay tuned!

    There’s a lot of whale-watching here in the Northwest US, but I never thought of doing this in France! It’s going on my when-in-France list!

  5. Me neither, but sounds like a great day’s outing, n’est-ce pas?
