Overview

Each year, humpback whales leave the northwest U.S. and Canada and migrate to the warm tropical waters off Mazatlan. This tour takes you a respectable distance from these colossal animals where you can watch them swim, play, and breach. Learn about their natural behaviors as well as local conservation efforts. Listen to their underwater songs via the on-board hydrophone and leave with a new appreciation for these gentle giants.

Whales, Dolpins, Sea Turtles and Seals!
Cynthia_S
, Feb 2020
As noted in an earlier review, book directly with Onca Explorations. I booked through a company on Viator called Nexus and it was a fiasco. No communication about pick up time or anything else for that matter. Emails went unanswered. Finally emailed Onca and they had no record of my reservation. But, kudos to Onca they straightened it all out and it was first class from there on out. Knowlegeable crew and very concerned about everyones comfort throughout the trip. A wonderful day on the water to see whales, dolphins, sea turtles and seals!

Fabulous Onca Expeditions

This was an Onca Expeditions Tour and after not getting any response from Nexus Tours Mexico, who I had booked through, I contacted Onca who replied immediately and confirmed everything. The tour itself was fabulous with many views of whales and whale pairs jumping and diving. We even saw a magnificent breaching of a very large whale. The tour included fruit, granola bar, water and soft drink. The guide provided great information about their research into whale populations and behavior. We spent almost 4 hours on the water. Your best bet is to book directly with Onca Expeditions.
