The Whale watching and Dolphin Encounter Combo Tour, is the best option to see the most of the Marino Ballena National Park. The tour departs from Punta Uvita Beach and visits the famous Punta Uvita Whale Tale, Isla Ballena, Tres Hermanas Islets and Ventana sea caves. During the tour we search for humpback and pilot whales as well as spinner, bottle nose, and spotted dolphins, which are residents to the Uvita coast. 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 life at Punta Uvita, Isla Ballena and Tres Hermanas. During the visits to Isla Ballena and Tres Hermanas observe the diversity of pelagic birds. Afterwards, we head for the amazing natural sea caves of Ventanas beach, and if conditions permit our experienced captain will navigate the boat through the natural water passage to give you a spectacular interior view! Throughout the tour enjoy the scenic beauty of the Uvita coastline and the mountains of Costa Ballena.
The whale watching season is at its peak from January-April and August through November although sightings can occur during other months as well. These are the peak months.
