The boat we use on our trips is what is know as a RHIB, rigid hull inflatable boat. It´s a Valiant PT-850, measuring 8,5 metres. In the back, we have an outboard Suzuki engine, 300hp. Her name? RISSO! (yes, just like the dolphin!)
It´s capacity is for 14 passangers plus 2 crew members.
RISSO is equiped with two VHF radios (mounted and portable); GPS plotter and a Hydrophone, as well as all the safety and security features and kit, mandatory by law: life-rafts, fire extinguishers, safety lights, anchors, etc.)
The choice of a RHIB is because:
Did you know that you can hear the sounds made by cetaceans with a hydrophone?
With our Hydrophone, you will be able to hear the “clicks” of the Spermwhales and the “whistles” of the dolphins.
