Whale Watching will surely be one of the greatest and most rewarding experiences of your life shared with us. In winter, November through March, we invite you to be part of this exciting adventure. You will explore Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit and Banderas Bay Sea on board of a boat where Explora Vallarta’s biologists will guide you around the natural habitat of these magnificent Humback Whales (Megaptera novaeangliae).
You will discover the different behaviors of these beautiful animals, including jumps and fin movements. You will also see mothers playing with their calves, and be able to listen to these animals’ enigmatic chants. Our biologists will explain to you each one of these interesting aspects about their biology, migration, and feeding, flirting and breeding behaviors. While you enjoy this activity it is really possible to see turtles, dolphins, killer whales, marine birds and friendly giant stingrays.
By being part of this adventure you will contribute to continue searching about these mammals and participate in the development of a photo-identification catalogue.
Be part of this tour that will mean an experience you will always remember.
