    All about the Whales and dolphins watching.

    Whale Season in Costa Rica

    Humpback whales are observed in two seasons, one from December to the end of March, that are the ones coming from the northern hemisphere and another season from the first weeks of July until the end of October, that are the whales from the southern hemisphere. The most common to observe are the humpback whales. Known for their long migrations. Occasionally you can see Bryde’s whales and Pilot whales. Dolphins are observed throughout the year at 95%, the most common to see on the Pacific coast are the bottlenose dolphins and spotted dolphins. The chances of observing cetaceans are quite high, but they are not guaranteed every day since we are not certain of the exact place where they are and we are working in a place where the animals have a natural behavior.
