If you are in Puerto Vallarta, this is an experience not to be missed. Oscar and his team will give you a memorable day on Banderas Bay with humpback whales...and once you’ve been once, you will want to go again!

Hello, than you for submitting your inquiry. We recommended to dress up in layers. Bring comfortable shoes or sandals, shorts, a comfortable shirt and an extra layer such as fleece and a waterproof windbreaker. It chills in the morning as we start the tour and run the boat or it gets windy we could get sprayed. Also, please bring sunglasses, sunblock lotion, a hat or a cap, a towel and a camera to capture special moments of the day.
