From December to March, these giant creatures fill our waters, offering a unique spectacle. Every winter, humpback whales migrate from the cold waters of the Arctic to the warm waters of Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta.

It is possible to see these enormous animals swim, jump, and play in their natural habitat. It is a unique opportunity to learn about these fascinating mammals and appreciate their beauty.

There are two main ways to see whales in Puerto Vallarta:

  • Whale watching tours: This is the most popular way to see whales in Puerto Vallarta. Tours typically last about three hours and offer participants the opportunity to see whales from a close distance. Experienced guides will share information about whales and their behavior.
  • Independent exploration: It is also possible to see whales in Puerto Vallarta on your own by renting a boat or kayak. However, it is important to be aware that whales are wild animals and it is important to respect their space. Do not approach whales too closely and do not make noise to avoid scaring them away.
