Humpback Whale Watching Trip Description:
If you are a whale watching fan, the best place to be is in the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Panama is one of the few places in the world where both the Northern and Southern Hemisphere Humpback Whale families migrate 25,000 km (16,000 mi) to breed and birth their young. The Gulf of Chiriqui National Park, a 14,740 hectare marine park, is the perfect place to see the Humpbacks up close during their migration-breeding routes.
This trip is during July 15 -October 15 (dates are approximate depending on arrival and departure of whales), as an added bonus to our year-round Island Trip. Panama waters are home to over 30 species of cetaceans, and you may see dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles. We’ll pass by uninhabited islands which serve as a refuge for howler monkeys, leatherback and hawksbill turtles, tiger herons, and exotic fish. Isla Bolanos does not have mammals due to no fresh water on the island.
We’ll be snorkeling near one of the most beautiful islands and pass the afternoon lunching, exploring, swimming, relaxing in a hammock, and playing on the white sand beaches of Isla Gamez or Isla Bolanos.
SPECIAL ADD-ON OPTION: Overnight Hotel Island Stay.
