Whale watching in Puerto Vallarta is a must do you can’t miss at least once in a lifetime! Humpback whales —one of the largest animals in the world— come to our sea each winter, leaving the cold and embracing the warm from December to March.

1. A huge and emotional encounter
When you watch a whale jumping out the sea… You’ll remember that scene all your life! These giants are smart animals as well, and their skills and sensibility makes them unique. A whale can measure up to 62 feet and weight 36 tons! Can you imagine such animal saying hello to you at the sea of Puerto Vallarta?
2. Perfect place, perfect weather
This magnificent animals travel through all the oceans and seas of the world. They usually migrate 15,000 miles each year! Humpback whales live North when it’s summer, and they come to Puerto Vallarta for their mating rituals.
After a year of pregnancy, the whales come to Mexico to have their babies. The ones that aren’t pregnant travel to mate because of the nice weather, so all the whales that come can spend a really warm winter before they come back North!
3. Music to the ears
Don’t miss an unparalleled concert by the sea! This marine singers perform with beautiful and calm music in Puerto Vallarta, communicating with their pals. They make this music with a special wind instrument as big as their cranium, because the sound is produced with air running through the head!
