Imperia and the
International Cetacean Sanctuary

a unique experience in the open sea

Live a unique experience in the open sea, come looking for and admire dolphins and whales in their natural habitat in the International Cetacean Sanctuary.

The excursion lasts about 4 hours from the moment of departure from the last port of embarkation and takes you towards the open sea. The aim is to research and admire in their natural habitat the species of mammals resident in the International Cetacean Sanctuary.

Once you have left the last port of embarkation, after 30 minutes of sailing towards the open sea, you will reach a depth of 2000/2500, where the probability of sighting is greater. From that moment on, actively participate with the crew of our motor ships in the sighting activity, remembering that patience and perseverance are necessary to be successful.
