Go whale watching in the Bay of Banderas, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Jump aboard a tour boat to find humpback and killer whales as they make their annual pilgrimage to Banderas Bay. Most of these majestic creatures are here to mate and give birth. Other species such as gray whales, false killer whales, and a variety of dolphins might also make cameo appearances. Look for a boat equipped with hydrophones (for listening to the whales' songs) and a marine biologist, to tell you about the sights and sounds you'll undoubtedly encounter.

    Interesting article. I wonder just how frequent Killer Whales are here, given that they are not regular at most semi tropical whale watching locations.

    Puerto Vallarta really is developing into Mexico's premier whale watching destination, and good luck to it!
