You'll also get to make the aquaintance of maritime residents such as dolphins and harbour porpoises.

Created using the expertise of a famous Icelandic marine biologist, the whale models appear life-like, creating the feeling as though you're on the ocean floor observing whales frozen in motion around you. You will also learn many interesting facts along the way.
