Whales and Dolphins Observation Tour

From: $95

Departing early in the morning in our comfortable van we'll drive down the Costanera Highway and along the Pacific Ocean for about 1 ½ hours to the town of Sierpe. There, we'll stop for 30 minutes to eat a tasty breakfast (not included). After breakfast we will board our cozy boat and cruise for 45 minutes down the Sierpe River through the largest Mangrove swamp in Central America, watching the abundant wildlife along the shores.

Once through the Sierpe River mouth and into the Pacific Ocean we will start our search for some of the 5 species of Dolphins, Whales and/or possibly the Sea Turtles that inhabit these waters. There are 5 Species of Dolphins living in the waters off the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica: Spotted, Spinner, Bottlenose (Flipper), Common Dolphin and even Orcas. 3 Species of Whales: False Killer, Pilot & Humpback Whales can be sighted nearly year round. 

No region of Costa Rica is as best as the South Pacific for observing whales and dolphins, normally the best seasons are from July to October, or January to March.

Your guide will illustrate the trip with interesting facts about these fascinating mammals and their Natural History. The spectacular views of Drakes Bay, Caño Island and Violines Island will amaze you.

When you get hungry we will prepare a delicious picnic lunch and then get back to Dolphins and Whales watching. Around 3:00 p.m. will start to head back to Sierpe and to Dominical.
