Proposal
 
 
 
The Vida Sol e Mar Resort, situated in Praia do Rosa, under Imbituba jurisdiction, central location in the region of more concentration of southern right whales in Brazil, is the the perfect place to go for whale watching in south Brazil. The resort sponsors the Right Whale Institute which promotes the preservation of this species in our country and relies on specialists who participated in the project conception in Santa Catarina, provided all the technical information and team training for whale watching and will offer support during the trips.

The package offer the opportunity to watch and learn about these amazing cetaceans that come to these shores to give birth and feed their calves.

The boat trip is on a 9 meters semi-rigid boat for 20 passengers, purchased for this purpose. It is equipped with two 90 HP engines, life vests for every passanger and an emergency boat regarding the National Sailing Regulations imposed by local authorities (Capitania dos Portos). The whale watching trip lasts about 120 minutes, accompanied by a biologist of the Institute, and the captain is specially trained to approach this animals. With watchers spread along the coast, distributed in 80 Km, between Praia da Pinheira (Pinheira beach) and Cabo Santa Marta (Santa Marta cape), the boat will be constantly informed about the whales location.

The boat leaves from Praia de Garopaba (Garopaba beach) and will sail immediately to the beach where the whales are confirmed to be seen, generally, mother & calf. The approach will depend on the animals behavior regarding strictly the present regulations in order to protect the whales.
