After France in July 2014, the Principality of Monaco implements as well the "High Quality Whale Watching" Label through the Monegasque Association for the Protection of Nature (AMPN) an ACCOBAMS Partner.
When granted with the Label, operators undertake to train, to respect the code of conduct for Whale Watching, not to practice swimming with dolphins, to participate in scientific research and to deliver a message quality passenger encountered on cetaceans and the activities of the two Agreements.

The activity of Whale Watching is an important channel for communication and public awareness; it is not to ban it, but to frame it in a sustainable manner in order to reconcile the socio-economic aspect of this activity with the protection of marine mammals and their habitat.

So watch but respect!
