Island Adventures is proud to integrate SPOT satellite technology on our tours. We upload the precise GPS coordinates of the day’s whale sightings to the “Recent Whale Sightings” portion of our website. Over time we use this information to observe trends of whale behavior throughout the year. This exciting tool is perfect for both guests researching an upcoming trip or for whale enthusiasts following whales from the comfort of home.
