This unique Whale Study Week, operated by local St. John's-based naturalists, is a great opportunity to participate in actual whale research. Whale lovers can simply enjoy being in the company of these majestic animals as they travel and sometimes play in their northern feeding grounds.
Your leader is Dave Snow, who has taught marine mammal biology in Canada and the United States and has been involved with field studies with some of the world's best known whale researchers. You do not need to be an expert to enjoy this holiday; the program is suitable for any nature enthusiast who wants to enjoy the company of whales - simply a wonderful experience for anybody interested in fun, photography, or a unique adventure.
