This specialized excursion is designed to capture the magical moment when you have an encounter with the beautiful dolphins and the majestic humpback whales in Banderas Bay. The essence of this Tour is to observe marine life and enjoy beautiful moments when you can calmly contemplate whales and dolphins while playing, jumping and enjoying their natural habitat. There is no "typical day" in this adventure. We usually let the whales and dolphins "take over" the itinerary. We cannot always predict where we are going to find them, so we let them guide us along their favorite route of the day. Available from December to March, our Whale Tour is one of the most popular sighting trips in Puerto Vallarta
