What to Expect

The trip will start in our office, where we will greet you with a bottle of water. After completing all the necessary documents, you will be transported to the place where our boat will be waiting for us.

Our captain will take us to the best places where we can meet big whales. Of course, you must remember that they are wild animals and it may happen that due to various factors we will not meet them, but certainly you have a great chance! In addition to whales, we will have the opportunity to admire dolphins or various fish and birds. It will definitely be a wonderful day! On the boat, there are snacks and drinks at your disposal. We can provide lunch with prior ordering.

After the tour we will return to our office, where it will be time to share our impressions.

Costa Rica is known worldwide for its amazing natural heritage and many animals that you can admire in the wild. We have compiled some of the most frequently asked questions about whale watching in Costa Rica.

 

Why is there a different price for citizens and tourists?

We try to provide all our services at the highest level and deliver the best quality at an affordable price. The price of each trip includes local fees, admission tickets to national parks and other costs. The difference in price between the trip for Costa Rica residents and tourists is directly related to the different prices of the individual components of the tours. It is related to the policy of the Costa Rican government and the national park manager and our company has no influence on it. Due to this fact, the price of the trip for local people is different. Although it is not up to us, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

Where can I see whales in Costa Rica?

The most popular whale watching site in Costa Rica is the Osa Peninsula and it is also home to the longest humpback whale watching season in the world. At the same time, you can meet many other marine animals here, such as dolphins and killer whales.

 

What is the best time for whale watching in Uvita?

Whale watching at Uvita has two seasons, from mid-July to mid-November and from mid-December to April. These seasons are based on the humpback whale’s annual migration cycle as these animals travel from Antarctica and Alaska to Costa Rica each year.

 

Is a whale watching tour in Uvita worth it?

Humpback whales are large animals, up to 15m long. Despite their size, they are so strong that they can easily jump out of the water, while providing a spectacular show for those lucky enough to be there at the right time. Another great experience that is more likely to be on a tour is watching the offspring swim and play alongside the giant whale mother. All whale watching tours in Uvita depart from the Marino Ballena Marine Park. This national park offers more tourist attractions than just whales, which makes the trip well worth taking in the off-season.

 

Can I swim with whales on the tour?

Although these wonderful animals are much larger than humans and we would hardly be able to hurt them, for their comfort we cannot be in the water when they are around. Therefore, swimming, snorkeling or diving with whales is forbidden and we cannot do it. We guarantee, however, that the observation and the feeling of their closeness really make a big impression on everyone.
