Whales and dolphins watching

from $90.00

Whales and Dolphins in the Marino Ballena National Park.

Activity description
Our Combo tour will start after all tour participants have arrived at our office in Uvita, which is also the meeting point. Our certified guide will give you a clear briefing of the tour at the beginning. At our office you can enjoy snacks such as empanadas, coffee and orange juice. A short walk separates us from the beach of the Marino Ballena National Park, where we start our boat tour. Now we begin to discover the area and the animals that live there. We will look out for whales (the chance of seeing them depends on the season), dolphins, various bird species and turtles. Highlights such as The Whale Rock, Playa Ventana with its impressive number of caves and of course the whale tail formation will also be part of this fascinating boat tour. While exploring the national park, you will have the opportunity to swim in the ocean or, depending on the water and weather conditions, snorkel. During the tour you can refresh yourself with fruit and water. After the excursion, you are free to stay in the national park or accompany us back to our office where the tour ends.

    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.
