Whale Tagging

Whale Tagging aboard D/Y E Cruz
August 27, 2018

On August 27th, 2018, The International SeaKeepers Society teamed up with cetacean experts from several universities and conservation organizations aboard the DISCOVERY Yacht E Cruz to deploy suction cup tags on blue and humpback whales while using drones to measure body length. Click on the link below to learn more about this expedition. The ability to conduct this kind of field research aboard one of our DISCOVERY Yachts was crucial in understanding more about these gigantic marine mammals, as lab tests would be virtually impossible. Rather, observing them in their natural habitat is truly the only way to study and learn more about what are literally, the largest animals on our planet.
