and dolphins are a group of mammals called cetaceans that spend
their entire lives in water. The Blue Whale is the largest creature known to man.
They breath air, have their babies born alive,
and can live anywhere from 30 - 70 years. Naturally, when
Tecnico Cyberlifeboat Project, in Spain, decided to build an
eco-friendly vessel, they chose a Whale to model their craft
on. They are a charity based in the Costa Blanca building
eco gardens for educational purposes.

can see the craft taking shape in these pictures supplied by
Ken. They have built their glass reinforced Whale of
recycled materials wherever possible. The plan is to offer
rides to educational institutions using electricity (renewable
we hope) to propel the craft on trips. The Whale has three
viewing ports and can carry 8 children and a teacher who will
act as skipper.
