Puerto Vallarta Whale Watching § Vallarta's Most Popular Whale Watching Experience § Call 1.888.558.3330

Welcome To Vallarta Whale Watching

Nestled on the shores of beautiful Bahia de Banderas, a deep and expansive bay bordering the Pacific Ocean, Puerto Vallarta is the perfect vacation destination for nature lovers. Our marine biologists will guide you on an aquatic adventure to witness the remarkable Humpback Whales in their natural habitat. Every winter, these gargantuan marine mammals migrate from the frigid waters of the Bering Sea off the Alaskan coast to the warm waters of the bays and harbors of the Mexican Pacific. You may also have the opportunity to see other marine mammals such as Gray Whales, Spinner Dolphins, Spotted Dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins, and Sea Lions. You'll always cherish the memories of seeing these amazing marine mammals in their native environment.

Our well-trained staff will ensure an enjoyable, safe, comfortable, and enlightening ecological tour in the gorgeous waters of the Banderas Bay. Our English-speaking captains and crew are extensively trained. They are licensed by both wildlife organizations and the Mexican authorities. All of our whale watching boats are fastidiously maintained and inspected to make sure our passengers enjoy a safe whale watching excursion.

Ultimate Whale Watching

This small, ecologically-focused excursion has a twelve passenger maximum limit you won't feel squeezed for a spot on the rail of a large boat. You won't overwhelmed by a score of rubber-neckers, straining to listen to the narration by a wet-behind-the-ears teenage tour guide. Our dedicated naturalist guide, Isabel Cardenas, will share her expansive knowledge on the biology, eating and mating habits, migration patterns, and oceanic environment of the remarkable Humpback Whale. Operating the Ultimate Whale Watch expedition for over fifteen years, Isabel is truly dedicated to the preservation of these beautiful animals.
