OVERVIEW

Humpbacks migrate through the Bay of Banderas every year, often accompanied by young

As the water temperature drops, humpbacks start to migrate, leaving the colder waters of Alaska to mate and raise their young. Humpbacks grow up to 52 ft and sing beautiful songs. 

They are gentle and move slowly in the water. We have a great chance of seeing them surface for air or gracefully flip underwater to dive for up to 30 minutes. The real show starts when they 'breach'. This is when they jump out of the water, sometimes just to play, to clean themselves or to create a splash to attract other humpbacks in the area.

FAST BOAT

To see whales you need to be fast. When they pop up for air, they stay on the surface for a few minutes and then can dive for up to 30 minutes. 

Our 30ft boat with 2 150hp engines allows us to get close to the whales as soon as we see them surface, giving you maximum time to enjoy their presence.

Our Captain and crew have been on these waters for years, and know how to spot whales from a mile away.

SMALL GROUPS

The last thing you want when you spot your first whale is a crowded boat that you can't move around.

We only take small groups so you've got plenty of space to move freely and pick a spot that allows you to see these animals up close.
