|Whale Watching Adventures|
"...one of the best moments of my life!"
Discover the extraordinary world of whale watching on your Puerto Vallarta vacation! Each year from mid-December to March, the waters off the coast of Puerto Vallarta offer some of the most spectacular whale watching opportunities in the world.
There's absolutely nothing that compares to the thrill of seeing these fascinating animals in the wild, and Vallarta Adventures offers a variety of exciting whale watching tours that are safe, educational, and most importantly, lots of fun!
Because Vallarta Adventure whale watching trips focus on giving everyone a deeper understanding and awareness of whales and dolphins in their natural habitat, each tour is different.
The Whales, Dolphins & Snorkeling cruise to the Marietas Islands and the exclusive Whale Watching & Las Caletas adventures combine the thrill of watching whales with an afternoon of exploring secluded islands and beach hideaways around Banderas Bay.
The more adventurous can experience the thrill of whale watching on a Whale Photo Safari or Sailing with Whales tour. But no matter which whale watching trip you choose, Vallarta Adventures' expert naturalists will share an intriguing look into the "wonderful world of whales" with you.
