2.Whales and Dolphins in Marino Ballena National Park
The humpback whales regularly pass through Costa Ballena’s Pacific Ocean between mid July and late October, and again from Mid December through late March as they migrate to and from feeding and mating grounds.
This is one of the best option to see the most of the Marino Ballena National Park. This boat tour departs from Punta Uvita Beach and visits the famous Punta Uvita Whale Tale, Ballena Island, Tres Hermanas Islets and Ventana Sea Caves. During the tour, we will search for Humpback and Pilot Whales as well as for the three different species of resident dolphins. When granted the opportunity, you might see and hear the Humpback Whales and observe the acrobatic displays of the dolphins. We also visit the coral and rock reefs to snorkel and observe the wonderful marine wildlife. While cruising in the boat, enjoy the scenic beauty of the coastline of Costa Ballena; observe the diversity of pelagic birds in the Islets and the amazing caverns of Ventanas Beach (if conditions permit, the captain will navigate the boat through these wonderful natural water passages to give you a spectacular view!)
