Explore the world of the whales at the Marine Mammal Interpretation Centre (CIMM) and encounter the skeleton of a sperm whale over 13 m (40 ft) long. Unique videos, sound recordings, games, a skeleton collection and exclusive film screenings (in an air-conditioned room) provide the perfect complement to a whale-watching excursion. Specialists are available to answer your questions. All proceeds from your purchases at the gift shop help the whales. Visit the centre’s garden to admire local flora as well as five life-size sculptures of beluga whales. Keep up with current whale news at www.whales-online.net.
