Expert biologists will lead you through the marvelous world of humpback whales aboard our specially designed authorized boat for whale watching. Before launching in this adventure we’ll provide you with a lecture about these magnificent creatures. Once in the water, we’ll discuss the humpbacks’ behavior, while we see them breach, slap their tails, travel, play or fight. We’ll also listen to their intriguing songs. You can participate in our research project.

The head researcher of the Banderas Bay Photo identification Project might be leading your trip! If you like personal and professional attention and want a close encounter with our earth’s mightiest creatures, this is the tour for you!! …It is not to be missed!
