Whale watching in Panama has really taken off in the past few years. There was a time not too long ago that people did not even know that whales migrated as far as Panama when in fact, whales from both north and south poles migrate to Panama. Needless to say, the whale watching in Panama can be pretty spectacular. Thanks to the protection it offers to over 20 different species of marine mammals, the best whale watching tours in Panama can be found in the Gulf of Chiriqui! Departing from Boquete, you can hop aboard one of the Gulf of Chiriqui whale watching tours and see these gentle giants for yourself!
The warm waters found off Panama's Pacific coast draw humpbacks from both poles to give birth in the protection of Coiba National Marine Park. Humpback whales can be found in the Chiriqui National National Marine Park as early as May and as late as November, however the best time of year for whale watching in the Gulf of Chiriqui is between July and October when the pods of humpbacks are most active and in greater numbers.
Aside from the humpback whales, the Gulf of Chiriqui provides natural protection for other cetaceans such as Pilot whales, large pods of dolphins, and on occasion you may even find an Orca on the hunt. The Gulf of Chiriqui is teaming with marine mammals and either by boat or kayak, you will be able to see them spouting water, slapping the water with their large fins, spy hopping and maybe even breaching! There is probably nothing more spectacular to see up close than a humpback whale breaching, and from one of our Chiriqui Whale Watching tours, you have a chance to see the action!
