Whale Research Adventure

Join the best Whale-Watching Tour in Banderas Bay! Expert biologists or naturalists will lead you through the marvelous world of humpback whales aboard our specially designed boat for whale watching. The boats hold a maximum of 12 guests, so you'll benefit from a smaller, more intimate experience.

Before launching into your adventure, our biologists will provide you some useful background about these magnificent creatures. Once in the water, they'll discuss the humpbacks' behavior, while you see them breach, slap their tails, travel, play or fight. The boats are equipped with hydrophones to listen to their intriguing songs, and you can even choose to participate in a research project.

If you like personal and professional attention and want a close encounter with our earth's mightiest creatures, this is the tour for you! At the end of your tour, you'll be given a Whale Watching Certificate.

Very informative and enjoyable. We saw at least a dozen whales. While other whale watching boats was sitting in one place we went to wherever we could see the whales. We have done whale watching tours in Alaska, Hawaii, and Massachusetts before and this was the best one we had been on. We saw more whales on this one than all of the others put together

The BEST Whale Watching Tour available. Not just a boat ride, but an educational experience. The guide had a Master's Degree in Marine Biology.

"18 different whales were sighted on our whale watching adventure. Astrid, marine biologist extraordinaire, taught us about the humpback whales we saw, and showed us the differences in flutes. We recorded the male whale's song to share with our grandchildren. Our camera caught a whale breaching that equals professional photos. We've seen whales all over the world, and this was our best trip. If you're unsure about taking an excursion, go on this one! Tips: The ship's time and the local time were an hour apart. When you leave the ship, walk to the Shell gas station to catch an Uber. It's a $3 trip to the shop rather than a $16 taxi ride."
