Whale Watching Panama


Sunset with the whales

Sunset is a magical time to observe the whales and dolphins as the light is rich and golden, perfect for spectacular photos. At this time of day the waters are usually calm and we are often the only boat out with the whales. You will set out at 3:30 pm to observe the Hump-back whales and possibly dolphins as the sun descends to the West. We return at 6:30 pm filled with incredible memories of your visit with the whales and dolphins. For these tours, we like to support the local fishermen who have turned to tourism for their sole source of income.  We go out with one of them in their local panga style boats.  These boats are very safe and these locals were born and raised fishing in these waters.  Hours 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm Price $50.00 per adult*
$25.00 children 5-12
Children under 5 are free * 4 person minimum- we can go with less
people, but to cover costs we must charge for 4 people.

Whale Watching 3 hour tour

We start out from Playa Galeon (where the ferries arrive) at 10:00 am (or as soon as the last ferry has arrived) in search of the whales.  Often we have already spotted the whales while standing on the beach!  We spend 3 hours out with the whales and possibly dolphins.  For these tours, we like to support the local fishermen who have turned to tourism for their sole source of income.  We go out with one of them in their local panga style boats.

Spend a beautiful morning on the sea observing key Blue footed booby, Magnificent frigate bird and Brown pelican nesting areas. We will also look for marine mammals such as Humpback whales and dolphins. We may even spot some sea turtles, jumping sting rays and other marine life. We begin our tour at 7:00 am when the sea is normally very quiet and few other boats will be around. We return at 9:30 am so you can enjoy a leisurely day on the island.   For these tours, we like to support the local fishermen who have turned to tourism for their sole source of income.  We go out with one of them in their local panga style boats.  These boats are very safe and these locals were born and raised fishing in these waters.
