Whale & Dolphin Watching Tour

The waters surrounding Marino Ballena National Park are ideal for whale and dolphin watching, as the clear, deep blue water allows for easy viewing. The most frequently spotted species in this area include Humpback and Pilot Whales Bottlenose and Spotted Dolphins and other marine life. As always with this type of tour, the presence and exact location of these sea creatures are unpredictable. Although sightings cannot be guaranteed, they are frequent in these waters.

The park is fortunate to receive two annual migrations of whales, the Humpback Whale of the North visits the South Pacific Coast from December to March and the humpback whale of the South begins migration in July which ends in October.

During the tour sea turtles, dolphins, stingrays, and other marine life are commonly seen out in the water. The dolphin populations are resident, so it is usual to see them more often. You´ll visit “Roca Ballena” to watch birds and the Ventanas Beach Caves. The tour also includes some time for swim and snorkeling depending on climate conditions.
