About
The Humpback Whale Institute's interpretive center, Espaço Baleia Jubarte, is maintained with PETROBRAS sponsorship and was designed to introduce visitors to these amazing creatures who frequent the region during winter and spring. A garden walk will reveal an adult whale skeleton, several replicas showing typical humpback whale behaviors, and an auditorium with interactive displays, species miniatures and a continuous show of the best images of Brazilian humpbacks obtained by the Project crew.

Excellent infrastructure for kids and family, welcoming and knowledgeable staff located in a charmy and safe neighborhood of Praia do Forte village. I do recommend it!

We decided to visit Praia do Forte from Salvador on a day trip specifically to get to know more about these amazing creatures and have the chance to actually see them in open sea!
The day trip from Salvador is totally doable, we were doing a trip around Brazil and could not spend a night there, but really everything was magic. We booked a car ride with the amazing Roberto Neri 00557187477855 and it was super, he collected us at our hotel waited for us in Praia do Forte to take us back to the hotel and along the way he gave us some amazing tips and Infos about the region, all for a super price so really recommend his service.
The experience with the search centre was well organized, they give you an introduction to these beautiful animals explaining some interesting facts both in Portuguese and English. After that the real safari begins by boarding first on a little boat to then change to a bigger vessel. The emotion you feel while perusing the horizon in search of a sign from the whales and when you all collectively hold your breath waiting for them to emerge from the water is something incredible that I believe one must experience at least once in a lifetime! Praia do Forte must be one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen and it is the perfect spot to chill after the whale safari and enjoy some tasty local cuisine.

Hi Mary, Thank you very much indeed for your visit and your kind comments! We are always striving to offer the best experience to our visitors and one that will empower them to feel the same awe and respect for the whales and the marine environment as we do. Hopefully the humpback whales will continue to recover from past indiscriminate hunting and keep visiting us every year in even larger numbers, so more people can enjoy their presence and feel the same thrill as you did. Regards!

Nothing special. It is good to know more about this amazing animal, whales, but the place doesn't offer as good entertainment as Tamar (the turtle place)!

Thank you very much for your visit and for your comments about our visitor center. Indeed, we are much smaller than our partner TAMAR and cannot hold a whale :-), but we strive to bring the universe of these amazing animals to our visitors, hoping that many can come back during winter and spring to see them first-hand during their breeding season! Hope you have enjoyed your stay in Brazil.

It's a nice place specially when you are going to a visit expedition in the ocean just after their seminar.
