Private Whale Watching Tour in Puerto Vallarta
USD 650.00

Take a private tour from Puerto Vallarta into Banderas Bay with a marine biologist. You will have the guide and the boat to yourself on this whale watching adventure. Depart from the marina and spend the morning spotting whales from a safe distance that won’t disturb them. Make sure you bring your your questions for the expert, and your camera to capture the moment.

What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at the marina at 8:45am, to depart no later than 9am. You guide will introduce you to the wonders of humpback whales and the environment on board a boat, as the captain starts looking for whales.

As soon as whales are spotted, you will get close. You will also learn interesting facts about whales and you can ask any questions as your guide will surely explain all that you see. Throughout the tour, you will try to find different groups of whales, but all depends on Mother Nature. Each spotting can last up to 30 minutes in order to have a responsible whale watching activity.

Lunch is provided around noon when the boat turns into a 360° marine view deli-restaurant. You will be back to the marina around 1pm, after having had a lot of fun.

Best whale watching you can probably get.

We saw over 14 whales and a bunch of dolphins, even though it was the last day of the season. Although it was our first time I think we lucked out. Thalia knew exactly where to find them and it seemed like it would have...More
