Drake Bay, Costa Rica offers some of the best opportunities in the world to see dolphins and whales and other marine life in their natural habitat. We have the longest season of Humpback Whales in the world, as we get humpbacks coming here from both North and South America. This makes for some of the best whale watching to be found anywhere! Over twenty five species of dolphins and whales are either resident or pass through the area on migration.
Costa Rica is a strategic place to see dolphins and whales, as has a warm current that is kept constantly on their shores. Will visit sites where it is known that normally you can find groups that have been giving sightings earlier in the same season. During the tour are different types of species depending on the season. The tour with dolphins and whales is done in motor boats.
Every dolphin and whale watching tour is different and interesting. There are days that we encounter dolphins close to shore, and other days we go far offshore to observe large pods of more than 1000 Bottlenose, Spotted, Common and/or Spinner dolphins. It is possible to witness a new Humpback whale mom teaching her baby to breach or see several Humpback males compete for female attention.
