Did you see a whale? Let us know!
Just two minutes of your time helps protect the whales in our waters. When you report your cetacean (whale, dolphin, and porpoise) and sea turtle sightings, large ships in your area will be immediately alerted to the presence of the animals and will be able to take measures to reduce the risk of ship strike and disturbance.
You can also send a sighting using your smartphone!
Thank you for your patience! WhaleReport is back up and running for android devices on the Google Play store.
