Humpback Whale Watching Extension

Enjoy Close Encounters with These Gentle Giants off Mexico's Pacific Coast
Off the Pacific coastal town of Puerto Vallarta lies the breeding grounds of hundreds of humpback whales, which migrate here annually from their summer feeding grounds in Alaska. Fascinating and entertaining, these active whales often put on quite a show as they breach and spy-hop in full view. We spend lots of time among these charismatic marine mammals, heading out by small vessel on two daytime whale-watching excursions plus one sunset trip where we search for singing males to record their otherworldly songs. Ashore, we enjoy first-class accommodations and the friendly tropical vibe of this popular Mexican resort town.

Trip Highlights

  • Spend unhurried hours, on three separate excursions, among the humpback whales that come to Banderas Bay to mate and birth their young
  • On a sunset boat excursion, locate male whales and record their distinctive songs, which are often repeated for hours
  • Visit a crocodile conservation program at a lagoon reserve that’s also an important habitat for water birds
