During the winter months, a large number of humpback whales migrate to the Mexican Pacific coast to mate and breed. Between December and April, they make their spectacular appearances in Banderas Bay.
Marvel at these huge mammals' majestic grace...Humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) arrive in November for calving and return to colder waters in March. Watch for them from Playa Escondida beach or pool, or, for a close up experience, take a private boat trip.
Take a boat trip and watch dolphins play in the same waters where the whales breed and calve
Located at the north end of Banderas Bay, the Marietas Islands are the ideal spot for whale watching and snorkeling. Brought to the international attention by scientists like Jacques Cousteau, the Marietas Islands are an UNESCO protected area since the late 1960's.
