Adopt a Whale

CSI's whale adoption program is like no other! 


You don't just get an image of your adopted whale; you actually get to meet your whale on a special custom DVD.


Each DVD averages 32 minutes in length and you get to choose from 11 distinct whales with names. Each of the eleven distinct DVDs highlights your adopted whale.


Footage may include one or more members of its family tree, special or rare behaviors and the sights and sounds of being on the water with the whale you select.


You will be able to witness your favorite whale approaching and showing interest in whale watch boats, feeding, breaching, etc.


And best of all your whale adoption supports the research and conservation efforts of CSI. So you and generations to come can continue to  experience these wonderful unique marine mammals in their natural environment.

Dear CSI,

This year for Christmas I purchased three whale adoptions for my three children and their spouses.  They are all thrilled with their gift, their DVDs and their whales. The “kids,” as a result of their adoptions, say they now feel closer to whales and even more responsible for the health of the oceans.  So a belated Merry Christmas to you and many thanks for your whale support, the opportunity to share your work with my loved ones, and for the gift you sent.
