Your meeting point is just minutes outside the cruise terminal where your guide and crew will be waiting. You will get on board the boat and cruise into Banderas Bay. There is a maximum of only 20 guests so everyone has a great view on this 30' boat!
The whales found here in the shallow waters of Banderas Bay migrate here annually to mate and give birth. The majority of the species found here are humpback whales which are the most vocal and most acrobatic - they are the ones who will "sing and dance". After traveling all the way from the waters north of Alaska, they put on quite a show. Full body breaches, tail lobbing, spy hopping are all common behaviors you might see. The captain will get you close enough without disturbing them so you can get the best photos.
You just might see mommas with babies, multiple pods, or even males fighting over a cute female. The boat comes complete with a hydrophone that will be lowered into the water so you can hear the surreal "songs" the whales make.
Make sure you ask lots of questions as this is both an entertaining as well as educational excursion. The crew onboard are knowledgeable and will also provide you with a 5 star treatment. They will circulate with specially prepared snacks and be serving beverages for your entire excursion. There is plenty of shade area and everyone has an unobstructed view. Do not forget your camera! There is a restroom onboard too.
