The boat

Welcome on board of the RISSO: yes, just like the dolphin!

The boat we use on our trips is a RHIB, rigid hull inflatable boat. It’s a Valiant PT-850, measuring 8,5 meters. In the back, we have an outboard Suzuki engine, 300hp. 
The maximum capacity is 14 passengers plus 2 crew members.

Why choose for a RHIB?

  • You get closer to nature.
  • There is more personal contact between customers and our team, as we are only 16 onboard.
  • Faster and safer arrival within the area of the activity.

RISSO is equipped with two VHF radios (mounted and portable); GPS plotter and a hydrophone, as well as all the safety and security features and kit which are mandatory by law: life-rafts, fire extinguishers, safety lights and anchors.

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.
