Whale Watching in Colombia

We’ll take you from wherever you are in Colombia to see one of the country’s (and the world’s) most impressive natural manifestations. Between 600-1000 Humpback Whales that traverse the Pacific Ocean arrive here between the months of June and October to give birth and nurse their young until they are old enough to venture away from the shores of the Choco’s Pacific coast.

During their stay the young are often in playful mode, allowing you the chance to observe these majestic and enigmatic creatures as they enjoy the warm seas.

We consider our whale watching tours as very best out there. Our vast knowledge of the area has allowed us to form various alliances with gorgeous private beach lodges that provide that quality touch and escapist experience.

Together with our specialist knowledge of the local natural and adventure experiences, our tours encompass the very best of one of Earth’s most unique rainforests and coasts.
