Description

Get the one-of-a-kind opportunity to join a team of expert marine biologists on the search for humpback whales. This tour takes you out onto the Pacific Ocean to look for and learn about the majestic creatures. With a hydrophone on board, you can even hear the melodic song of the whales first hand.

Your exciting day begins with hotel pick-up in Mazatlán and a convenient transfer to the marina. Join a small team of experienced marine biologists on board their vessel and set out into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. As you cruise along, learn about the amazing humpback whales that you'll encounter and familiarise yourself with their distinctive shape and breaching habits. The whales visit the Mazatlán coast annually, and your journey contributes to the conservation and research efforts of the biologists.

Keep your camera ready as you near your whale-watching spot. You're right up close to the action when the whales begin surfacing and leaping into the air, sending great waves rolling out every time they crash back into the water. Gather around the on-board hydrophone to hear the enchanting, underwater songs of the whales first hand. After spending ample time watching the amazing creatures and learning new facts, head back to the marina where your tour comes to an end.

Lily and the captain were AMAZING! They really were committed to making our experience the best it could be and were not just putting in their time. We stopped twice on the way back when they saw a group of 4 whales and another Mom and baby. The trip had already been great but this added even more to the day.
