Welcome to WhaleFest 2011 and click here to go to the Whalefest website!
WHALEFEST IS THE UK’S FIRST AND LARGEST EVENT FOR PEOPLE WITH A PASSION FOR WHALES AND DOLPHINS!
With over a quarter of a million people taking whale and dolphin watching trips each year in the UK, and millions more folk who love and care about these charismatic animals, it’s time to bring everybody together for the event of the year - welcome to WhaleFest!
Described by a trusted unnamed source as like the thrill of “leaning over the side of a sailing boat surrounded by dolphins with only George Clooney and Reese Witherspoon for company!”, WhaleFest is the must do event for everybody who loves whales, dolphins, and whale watching!
Ok, so admittedly neither George, Reese, or the dolphins will actually be at WhaleFest, but hay, we can still bring you the spine-tingling buzz of encountering these awesome animals in the wild. Here’s how:
Each day, dive in to our packed programme of WhaleFest events. Meet the life-sized Blue Whale, take a real-time whale watching trip or find yourself inside the weird world of the Blubber Belly! Discover the deep ocean and learn how whales talk, listen, think and feel.
Mark Carwardine - star of BBC 'Last Chance to See' with Stephen Fry, and reknowned whale expert - will be speaking at WhaleFest. Be inspired by our entertaining speakers including wildlife celebrities and some of the world’s leading whale and dolphin experts, or get involved with the many activities run by participating whale and dolphin conservation charities, from rocky shore excursions to marine mammal medic training courses!
Then why not surf the many WhaleFest exhibitor stands selling whale and dolphin tours, adopt-a-whale packs, and all the latest products for whale watchers. You'll find everything, from binoculars to sunglasses, books to eco-holidays! Finally, there are quiz shows, question and answer sessions, speakers corner, exclusive book launches and much, much more!
WhaleFest is organised by Planet Whale, the world’s largest online search engine for whale and dolphin watching trips. The Planet Whale website and WhaleFest share the same vision: to provide whale and dolphin conservation organisations and sustainable whale watching companies with a free platform to promote their work to the widest possible audience.
