Whale watching season in Costa Rica runs from July to November. This is the best time to encounter these magnificent whales in their natural habitat. Whales have their own habits, but they can change their schedule if something doesn’t suit them. Therefore, when planning to go whale watching, it is advisable to choose an experienced captain who can predict their behavior. Objectively speaking, the best place to see whales is around Uvita, on the Pacific coast. This is the area that these animals have taken a liking to, and here you have the best chance of encountering whales with their young. Our whale watching tours are a great way to spend a fun day on the ocean

Whale watching in Costa Rica – where is the best place?



Costa Rica is known around the world for its incredible natural heritage and the many animals that can be seen in the wild. We’ve 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 strive to provide all our services at the highest level and deliver the best quality at an affordable price. Included in the price of each tour are local fees, entrance fees to national parks and other costs. The difference in price between a tour for Costa Rica residents and tourists is directly related to the different prices of the various tour components.


This is related to the policies of the Costa Rican government and the national park manager and our company has no influence on this. Therefore, the price of the tour for the local people is different. Although this is out of our control, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.


Where can I see whales in Costa Rica?

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


What is the best time for whale watching in Uvita?

Whale watching at Uvita has two seasons, mid-July to mid-November and mid-December to April. These seasons are based on the annual migration cycle of humpback whales, 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, reaching up to 15m in length. Despite their size, they are so strong that they 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 happen during the trip is watching the offspring swimming and playing along with the mother whale. All whale watching tours in Uvita depart from the Marino Ballena Marine Park. This national park offers more to see than just whales, making it well worth the trip during the off-season.


Can I swim with whales on the tour?

Although these magnificent animals are much bigger than humans and it would be difficult for us to hurt them, for their comfort we cannot be in the water when they are around. Therefore, swimming, snorkeling or diving with whales is prohibited and we cannot do it. However, we guarantee that watching and feeling their proximity will really impress everyone.
