Description:

Watching a whale breach the surface, or a dolphin spin through the air, is an unforgettable experience.

Whether you are an armchair whale watcher or preparing to see these extraordinary animals in the wild, this stunningly illustrated guide will help you get the most out of your whale-watching experience.

Whale Watcher provides you with the very latest research on the world's whales, and their smaller relatives, the dolphins and porpoises, as well as offering practical information and expert advice on where to find and how to identify each species.

Dramatic action photography brings to life the thrill of watching whales in the wild, while detailed artwork provides an essential and comprehensive visual reference.

• Identification keys tell you, at a glance, the most recognisable features of each species, from its shape, size and colour, to behaviour and diving patterns.

• Authoritative factfiles provide up-to-date information on each species' habitat, range, conservation and population.

• Extensive information on where to watch the world's cetaceans, when to go and how to get there.
