Whale and Dolphin watching tour


The whales and dolphing watching tour will bring you to some of the most beautiful spots along the pacific coast of Costa Rica, which includes the Marino Bahia Ballena national park, the area surrounding Cano Island, and the Osa peninsula coastline.

On the tour, you may be able to observe many of the 22 species of whales.

The best times for observing whales are: The end of December until the end of April, and from July to September, when the Hump-back whale from the north migrates to the tropical waters of Central America to escape the winter cold.

The migration of these whales ends with the birth of their calves in the tranquil, tropical waters of Coronado Bay (Marino Bahia National Park), Drake Bay, as well as Cano Island.


What can one expect on the Whale and Dolphin Watching Tour?

The Humpback whale can grow up to a length of 16-17 meters, and weigh between 24-48 tons. When they jump out of the water, an impressive amount of as water vapor is thrown off by their tails slapping the water. No other specie of whale is so playful in the water as the Humpback.

If the boat captain deems the conditions safe to do so, he will allow you to get out of the boat and swim around, where you may be able to hear the song of the whales, as if you were swimming with them. You also have a good chance of seeing dolphins swimming close by.

The Bottle-Nose dolphin measures around 1.75 meters in length, and weighs between 150-650 kilos. The male is larger than the female. Their body is long and robust, and is dark blue or dark grey in color, with grey along it's sides. Like other dolphins, the Bottle-nose likes to swim alongside a boat's wake, as well as to leap in the air to see it's surroundings.

The types of dolphins that are normally found in this area are the Bottle-Nose, the Spotted, and the Spinner, which travel in groups of 12 or more.

Duration of tour: 3 hours.

Drinks and a light lunch is included
