Costa Rica Whale Watching seasons
The Marino Ballena National Park located in Bahia Ballena , Uvita, Costa Rica, is the home to one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats in Costa Rica and one of the best places in the world for Whale watching . July through the end of October is the best time to spot the majestic humpback whales, as the Southern Hemisphere Humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to the Marino Ballena National Park in Costa Rica to breed and raise their calves. December through February attracts the Northern Hemisphere Humpback whales to Costa Rica, as they’re migrating from the California and Washington state area. In a lucky day you could listen to the Whale love songs and feel the great sensation of watching a mammal that weighs more than 40 tons jump out of the water and splash its gigantic tail.
Come join us on the Bahia Aventuras Costa Rica boat tour & best whale watching in Costa Rica , where you can combine your five senses to create a powerful experience connecting you with nature!
Marino Ballena Park Combination Tour Details
The Bahia Aventuras Combo Tour is the best option to see the most of the Marino Ballena National Park. The Boat departs from Punta Uvita Beach after a safety briefing from our guide and will explore the Marino Ballena National Park searching for the majestic Humpback Whales ( see season above) and for other marine wildlife such as the Pacific spotted dolphins, bottle nose dolphins , seabirds, and sea turtles. ( Commonly sighted all year). When is the dry season we includes the snorkeling, so we’ll embark on a journey to whale island, also referred to as “whale rock,” to do so where you can observe turtles, bi-color parrot fish, Angel fish, puffer fish and much more. During the rainy season ( June to November ) you will get the opportunity to enjoy a dip in the ocean instead of snorkeling ! .Additionally on this trip, we’ll pass by the incredible natural formation of the whale’s tail and a brief pass by Ventanas beach to see and learn about the wonderful marine caves that were carved by the ocean. Depending on the ocean tides, we’ll either briefly stop at Ventanas or Arco beach to enjoy some fresh fruits. Throughout the entirety of this trip, you’ll enjoy the wonderful landscape that the South Pacific region of Costa Rica has to offer.
Please note: Our crew will do the best to try to spot humpback whales, Dolphins and other wildlife but seeing as we’re exploring Mother Nature, there is NO guarantee we’ll be able to see them on this tour.
