The Gulf of Chiriqui is a safe haven for migrating humpback whales to mate and calve their young every year between July and October. If you plan your Panama vacation just right, you can have the opportunity to view these majestic beauties up close on our Panama whale watching and island trip in the Gulf of Chiriqui.
Whale Watching Gulf of Chiriqui:
Whale watching in Panama is a relatively new fad, but experienced whale watchers know that the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Central America are some of the most premier spotting zones in the world. The Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park is a protective space and one of the few places in the world you can find humpback whales migrating 1000´s of miles from both poles.
It's not all about the whales either, you can enjoy guest appearances from sea creatures including dolphins, manta rays and sea turtles on this whale watching journey and voyage past uninhabited islands which are known breeding zones for rare regional land-based wildlife.
Bolaños Island Beach Break:
Your Panama whale watching trip includes a stop on one of the most scenic islands in the Gulf of Chiriqui, Isla Bolanos. Here, you can spend a sunny afternoon enjoying lunch, beach-side activities or even simply relaxing in a hammock in the refreshing sea breeze after a day on the water. You may even get lucky and spot whales from the comfort of your hammock!
For dedicated lovers of nature, a Chiriqui whale watching experience on one of our guided vessels is a must do experience on your Panama vacation. These majestic and gentle creatures are a common sight off the coast of Panama, and our expeditions offer you the amazing chance to experience them like never before.
These tours only operate when the whales are most active between mid-June and mid-October which means space is very limited. Don't miss out on your chance to experience whale watching in Panama, book your Gulf of Chiriqui whale watching tour online today and save money too!
