PRIVATE WHALE WATCHING
This tour is just hands down the most intimate, most personal and most rewarding whale watching adventure in Puerto Vallarta. This is a PRIVATE tour, so you will be the only guests on the zodiac, along with your crew. No positioning for photos, no photos with other people's heads in them, the crew will work for you to have the most amazing whale watching experience possible in Puerto Vallarta.
You can customize the tour to your interests, you can direct the crew how long you want to stay with certain whales, or if you'd prefer to move on to the next ones (within legal limits of course). This is not just any boat or crew either, it's a zodiac - the ultimate whale watching machine - invented by the famed Jacques Cousteau for this sole purpose, and your crew is a team of professional biologists.
The calving and breaching of the humpbacks from a zodiac will leave you breathless. We will use a hydrophone to listen to the humpback's famous songs, this is a real all-around whale experience. If you like, after whale watching we can also arrange snorkeling at one of the best snorkeling locations in Puerto Vallarta, such as Los Arcos or the Marietas Islands with a previous reservation and subject to availability.
