Orcas and humpback whales in the northern lights

Much further north than the known and common places for orca observation, there is a meeting point of orcas and humpback whales. There, at about 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle we have an ideal location for whale watching. Large schools of herrings enter the fjords where orcas, humpback whales, other whales and sea eagles follow them. This is a particularly special spectacle for photographers because at this time of the year the northern lights make a fantastic setting. Sensational news is the possibility to snorkel and dive with orcas and humpback whales. On stormy days when boat tours are not possible you depart for safaris onshore to take pictures of breath taking landscapes, birds and mammals.

Big Five in Kenia

Our Rhino Watch Safari Lodge is situated in the central Kenyan highlands and offers a beautiful view of Mount Kenya. Surrounded by three wildlife preserves the lodge provides an ideal base for safari game drives and excursions. It is our wish to offer sustainable tourism which shows the beauty of the animals and the landscape, includes the local community and protects the animals and their habitat.

Our safaris take you into private game reserves that are rich in game but are not visited by mass tourism. We would like to offer you a personal safari adventure without meeting motorcades in overcrowded parks. With us you observe the “Big Five” (buffalo, lion, rhino, leopard and elephant) and other African wildlife in their natural habitat, enjoy magnificent scenery and meet friendly people.

Warm hospitality and a friendly atmosphere await you here. The lodge is an oasis of peace and relaxation – a perfect place to get away from daily routine. We offer lovingly designed rooms in different categories and are specialised in dealing with nature and wildlife enthusiasts, families but also professional photographers and film crews.

Whale watching, swimming with wild dolphins, diving with sharks and Mobulas.

The islands of the Azores are shaped by the peaks of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, surrounded by the endless deep blue.

The archipelago forms a meeting place for rich marine life. Deep-sea currents transport nutrient-rich water from the depth. Microbes thrive and the food pyramid explodes. Therefore, whales, dolphins, sharks, turtles,Mobulas and pelagic fish are abundant in these waters.

The Azores are well-known for whale and dolphin watching for many years, but the islands have only recently been discovered for excellent diving and encounters with sharks. Visibility of 50 metres, close encounters with blue sharks in groups of often more than 15 animals, mako sharks that inquisitively check out the divers or Mobulas up close gathering around deep-sea mounts in large groups…

You can be assured that this is definitely a special experience for every diver!

You are a wildlife photographer? You would like to sit in the famous Punta Norte attack channel next to one of the best wildlife photographers of the world such as Brian Skerry from National Geographic? Or next to film teams such as the British Broadcasting Corporation? Then travel with Patagonia Project!

Patagonia Project offers nature and wildlife expeditions observing whales, dolphins, sea lions, penguins and plenty of other wildlife in Argentina´s Patagonia.

We have been travelling to Patagonia since 1993 where we discovered many remote wildlife colonies and breath taking landscapes at the end of the world. All this beauty has inspired us to expand our program in order to give more people the opportunity to visit this wonderful piece of paradise.

We offer tours that are specifically designed for photographers but also students, nature and wildlife enthusiasts as well as for families. You will definitely have the adventure of a lifetime with us.

We offer an excellent and professional service with a qualified crew, impeccable equipment and an elaborate scheduling with a lot of know-how. Furthermore, we work sustainably, we worry about the nature and its creatures as well as about our environment.

Code of Conduct for Whale Watching

We have been running sustainable whale watching tours, both at Pico and in Patagonia, for more than 20 years. Regulations for whale and dolphin watching were introduced to the Azores a number of years ago. Those laws dictate specific rules for boats which do whale watching. We strictly abide by these rules. All our boats are operated by Portuguese skippers as it is important to us to integrate the local community. Our experienced guides on board give expert insights into the life of marine animals around Pico. We aim to collect garbage that we come across during our tours and bring it back with us for recycling on land. Because even a small piece of garbage can be hazardous to marine life. The archipelago of the Azores are green islands and we want to keep them as they are: The island world in the Atlantic Ocean as one of the few oases left on our planet which we should preserve.

Gesellschaft zur Rettung der Delfine
(association for the rescue of dolphins)

Pico Sport and Scuba Azores cooperate with Gesellschaft zur Rettung der Delfine and with Dolphin Watch Alliance. Our tour „Delfinkontakt spezial“ is conducted under the direction of leading biologist Angela Ziltener. She is president of the Dolphin Watch Alliance. The organisation has its origins in the project “Dolphin Watch – Natural Underwater Science” which actively campaigns for the research and the protection of dolphins in the tourism hot spot Hurghada/Egypt.

Planting trees with “plant for the planet”

For each litre of consumed fuel we plant trees at the equator in Kenya. Our daughter Maisha Wirth is “ambassador for climate justice” and representative of “plant for the planet” in Kenya. Together with the initiator of the organisation Felix Finkbeiner, we conducted the first tree academy in Kenya in July 2011. Among the audience were high-ranking UN environmental representatives and the Kenyan Minister of Forestry and Wildlife. The picture below shows Maisha with the musician Ayub Ogada who composed the music for the tree academy in Kenya. Ayub took part in Peter Gabriel’s world ensemble and wrote the theme music for the movie “The Constant Gardener”. Here you can have a look at pictures of our planting activities in January 2013 during the Rhino Camp 2013.
