Pride of Bilbao Whale Watching

Since 1995 P&O Ferries has supported scientists from the Biscay Dolphin Research Programme who travel on the Pride of Bilbao to monitor whales and dolphins in the English Channel and Bay of Biscay.

On every sailing there is a wildlife officer who provides free presentations and assisted deck watches for all passengers. He also provides a talk for children in the Dolphin Club. So far the work has resulted in 21 species of whales and dolphins being recorded, representing more than 30,000 individual animals. They include fin whales, pygmy killer whales, pilot whales, minke whales, Cuvier's beaked whales, and even the legendary Blue whale. All kinds of dolphins are spotted regularly riding the bow waves, they include the striped, risso and bottlenose variety.

The Pride of Bilbao also carries measuring devices on behalf of oceanographers from Southampton University who monitor water quality and temperature. The FerryBox equipment was first fitted on the P&O Pride of Bilbao in April 2002. Since then data has been transmitted to SOC using the Orbcomm satellite system and displayed on the webpage in real time
