Join our biologist on this amazing tour!
From December 07 – March 23
From late November to late March, hundreds of Humpback whales migrate down from the cold waters of the North Pacific Ocean to our less cold waters. They enter Banderas Bay to mate, breed and nurse. You will be guided into the wonders of whales, by our biologist with a Masters Degree in Marine Ecology. Our boats are small because this is the best way to get close to the animals, to move faster and to avoid disturbing them too much. Join us!

Without a doubt, one of the highlights of Puerto Vallarta!
From late November to late March, hundreds of Humpback whales migrate down from the cold waters of the North Pacific Ocean to our less cold waters. They enter Banderas Bay to mate, breed and nurse. How about seeing 40 tons of animal weight out of the water, a group of males competing for a female, or a lovely mommy with her playful baby? We never know what we’ll get, but we guarantee you’ll see whales.
These incredible cetaceans will thrill you with their acrobatics and behavior displays. Our guide, with years and years experience, will explain you all this behaviour. Though the years she got to know many of them even by their names! Important to know is that we use small boats because this is the best way to get close to the animals, to move faster and to avoid disturbing them too much. Our boats have capacity for up to 8 persons, so every tour is very personal.
Join us to meet these amazing and graceful giants, become our and their guest as a responsible whale watcher! We meet at Marina Vallarta where our guide will give you a brief explanation about the animals. Then we are off for the adventure into the beautiful Banderas Bay! Once we leave the marina, we start looking for whales. Remember they can show up anytime and anywhere. During our 4 hour boat ride, we will encounter different whales and see their behavior. Birds, dolphins, turtles, manta ray and many types of fish also live in the bay, so have your eyes wide open and cameras ready! And don’t be shy, ask as many questions as you want.
We have snacks and drinks on board for your convience. Needless to say, make sure your bring your camera!
