 We depart from the Balboa Yacht Club at 8:15 am  and head straight out towards the Pearl islands looking for whales and dolphins the entire time. We will be out with the whales until noon when we will arrive on Contadora island to have lunch at The Point Hotel beach front restaurant.  At 2:30 pm we will board the boat to head back to Panama city, arriving around 5:00 pm.

​Lunch on Contadora Island included in price. 

The Boat
The Taboga Express is a 2016, fast, motor catamaran that has a capacity of 60 people for whale watching (125 as a ferry). It can easily reach the Pearl Islands in 1.5 hours. Because it is a catamaran this boat is much more stable and comfortable than any regular single hull boat. It has open viewing from all sides, front and back, and ample seating for all passengers. It has shade and two bathrooms. It has state of the art navigation, GPS and communication systems and has US Coast Guard approved life jackets and life rafts for 135 people.

*Our Guarantee:  If for any reason no whales are sighted on your tour, we will give you a ticket to come back with us on any scheduled large boat tour for free.

Please save or print a copy of your order confirmation to bring it with you to show at check in.
