Deer Harbor Charters follows the “Best Practice” approach to whale & wildlife tours. The days of “GO FASTER and GET CLOSER” whale watching are over. We need to make sure we work together and act accordingly. This is the best way to protect our marine mammals from extinction and for future generations.
Some examples of the “Best Practice” approach are – operating slowly while around whales & wildlife. Slowing down as we approach and depart wildlife. Shut the engines off if whales or wildlife get to close to the boat. We also make sure to follow all USCG, State & Federal Regulations to ensure that we are operating in a safe and sustainable way.
