Hi Mary, Thank you very much indeed for your visit and your kind comments! We are always striving to offer the best experience to our visitors and one that will empower them to feel the same awe and respect for the whales and the marine environment as we do. Hopefully the humpback whales will continue to recover from past indiscriminate hunting and keep visiting us every year in even larger numbers, so more people can enjoy their presence and feel the same thrill as you did. Regards!

Nothing special. It is good to know more about this amazing animal, whales, but the place doesn't offer as good entertainment as Tamar (the turtle place)!

Thank you very much for your visit and for your comments about our visitor center. Indeed, we are much smaller than our partner TAMAR and cannot hold a whale :-), but we strive to bring the universe of these amazing animals to our visitors, hoping that many can come back during winter and spring to see them first-hand during their breeding season! Hope you have enjoyed your stay in Brazil.
