Whale watching tour
Panama is one of the best destinations in Central America for ecotourism vacation packages; and undoubtedly, the province of Chiriqui is a hotspot for nature and adventure lovers.
The Gulf of Chiriqui is one of the privileged areas in the country to observe humpback whales as they move into warmer waters from the colder south – from mid to late July to mid-October. The Pacific coast of Central America is one of the few areas in the world where humpback whales from both the northern and southern hemisphere come to mate and to give birth.
For this expedition, accompanied by an experienced captain, you will depart from the hotel in a small boat looking for whales and dolphins in the waters of the Chiriqui National Park. Luckily, you will find these beautiful giants swimming alongside with their babies.
After a while contemplating this wonder of nature, you will enjoy some free time to snorkel nearby the amazing coral around Bolaños Island. This island will give you the opportunity to observe a rich marine life including colorful fishes, sponges, mollusks, green turtles, and many other species living in these tropical waters .
