Overview

There are very things more extraordinary than witnessing these larger-than-life mammals swimming past you, which is why we offer amazing whale watching holidays in São Tomé and Príncipe.

Early morning or late afternoon is the best time to see humpback whales and if you are staying or visiting Roca Belo Monte on Principe, you can often spot them from the plantation’s verandah. Alternatively, you can try to get a little closer to these magnificent creatures by heading out to sea on an organised boat trip.

We can organise 2 to 3-hour whale watching trips which bring you into closer contact with these gentle giants as they engage in breaching, lob tailing and flippering.

The best time to witness this is from July to October, as they migrate from their low-latitude summer feeding grounds to more tropical mating and calving areas.
