The Costa Rica’s warm seas are home to one of the most biologically diverse marine habitats in the world.
Pockets of shallow, temperate waters create the ideal ecosystem for humpback, killer and pilot whales, and bottle nose, spinner and spotted dolphins The Humpback Whale, a mammal measuring 15-17 meters long, migrates to these tropical pacific waters from the north during our winter season to birth their young.
Many species of dolphins and whales are endangered and protected. Come, join us, learn and love them even more. This tour will surely be an unforgettable experience for you.
