It is December and it is the time of sighting of the humpback whales. It will be until next March 23, when tourists and inhabitants enjoy the presence of these mammals of more than 30 tons each year arriving in the warm waters of the port of Jalisco.
Throughout the year the arrival of more than two thousand whales in Bahia de Banderas has been registered, and it is possible to make two tours: Whale Watching and Whale Photography, these can be done through Wildlife Connection, a responsible company that has federal permission from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT).
The outings for both are very early and it is recommended to hire them in January and February as there will be more chances to be able to meet the whales that will give a fantastic show with jumps and flutters that can be seen just a few meters away from the boat, tours last approximately four and a half hours.
The encounter is impressive and emotional because although it is considered one of the largest mammals, it is an extremely intelligent, sensitive and highly mobile cetacean, since one of its characteristics is to perform great acrobatic jumps.
So you know, one option for this year-end vacation is without a doubt, Whale watching in Puerto Vallarta.
