ALBERT CÁMARA BALESTEGUI
vigia which means he is the one finding most of the whales and dolphins that we get to see during our whale watching and swimming with dolphins tours. Roberto has been working with us since 2008 and he has become fundamental to us. With his many years of experience and trained eyes Roberto is able to spot a whale up to 45 km from the coastline and he can usually determine the whale species by the shape of its blow or the dolphin species just from the swimming behaviour. Not much can escape Roberto's eyes and he has developed a very accurate sense of predicting where a whale will surface next. We feel confident in saying that Roberto is the best vigia around!
