The Jubarte Whale can grow up to 13 meters in length and spends the majority of the year in the cold waters of the South Atlantic Ocean. But at the end of June, when winter hits the southern hemisphere the whales migrate to their breeding grounds in the warmer waters of Bahia. There they stay till the end of September and it is an excellent time for whale watching.
The Jubarte whales are usually found in small groups of four to six, so it is likely that when you see one, others will follow.
The price of the excursion is between 60 and 70 euros. Children go for half price.
