Humpback Whales are by far the most expressive and captivating of all the large marine mammals which inhabit Pacific waters. Banderas Bay has one of the largest concentrations of these magnificent animals and it is here, in these protected waters that they come to mate and breed during winter months. Often they can be seen breeching, performing peduncle slaps and tail slaps that your expert guide will explain to you. This specialized excursion is designed to capture the magical moment when you encounter wild dolphins and majestic humpback whales.


The essence of this tour is to find the wildlife and enjoy those precious moments when you can sit peacefully and watch the whales and dolphins play, breach, eat, or just hang out. There is no such thing as a "typical day" on this adventure tour. Of course, you’ll have the chance to see the majesty of Banderas Bay and the abundance of marine life that lives here, as well as enjoy some light snacks and drinks, but often it is the "wild ones" (the whales and dolphins) who are in charge of the daily itinerary. We cannot always predict where they are, so we will let them guide us along their preferred route of the day.


Need to Know:

Note: Participants must be at least 10 years of age. We recommend that you bring a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and your camera. Vessel is not wheelchair accessible. Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed. This tour is offered during whale watching season, from mid-December through mid-March.
