WHALE WATCHING

Additional Tours Available From Puerto Vallarta

 

Banderas Bay is a favorite calving ground of the humpback whales.  December 15th through March 31st, these giants of the deep populate the waters around Nuevo Vallarta, giving spectacular displays to onlookers as they leap out of the water creating thunderous splashes.  If you're lucky, you can even get to see baby humpbacks - a real treat!  From the boat, you'll also have a good chance to see Bottlenose Dolphins, Manta Rays, and Sea Turtles.  This is a truly amazing experience.

Nuevo Vallarta Whale Watching FAQ's

Q: ARE YOUR BOATS LICENSED FOR WHALE WATCHING?
A:
Yes, all our boats are fully licensed for whale watching by the Mexican Government.  We follow all whale watching rules of conduct, and follow the guidelines set forth for responsible whale watching.  We care deeply about the safety and protection of Puerto Vallarta's amazing humpback whales and dolphins.

Q: AM I GUARANTEED TO SEE WHALES?
A: If we could guarantee that, they wouldn't be wild.  Our experienced guides know where they're likely to be, and will try their best to help you see them, but in the wild, there are no guarantees.  That being said, whales are very plentiful in Puerto Vallarta, and virtually every tour that we know of sees whales on their whale watching tour.

Q: DO I GET TO SNORKEL WITH THE WHALES?
A: See the above answer - no tour in Puerto Vallarta or anyone else can answer yes to this question.

Q: ARE THESE THE ONLY WHALE WATCHING TOURS?
A: Only from Nuevo Vallarta.  However, just down the road in Puerto Vallarta, there are more whale watching tours to choose from.  Click Here to see them.

Q: WHY ARE THESE TOURS ONLY AVAILABLE FROM DECEMBER THROUGH MARCH?
A: Whale watching season only runs from December 8th until March 23rd - outside of those dates, it is illegal to approach the whales.  They aren't in the bay year-round, they just come here to calve.
