The Riviera Nayarit is a great place to see sea mammals. Kayakers in Banderas Bay often see dolphins, and from November to April visitors can also take whale-watching tours. Each year hundreds of humpback whales visit Banderas Bay as part of their migration between Alaska and Hawaii.
There are a number of whale-watching trips to choose from so pick the one that’s right for you. Do you want a large boat full of people and perhaps music? Do you want to snorkel or kayak as part of your day outing?
Vallarta Adventures and Ocean Friendly Whale Watching Tours are two possibilities for whale-watching in the Riviera Nayarit. Even on a trip in early November before whale-watching tours actually began, we enjoyed spotting whales during a snorkeling trip.
