I truly recommend Oscar and Company for Whale Watching. They are friendly, knowledgeable and truly take care of their customers. We had an amazing experience. We saw a lot of Whales. Also, their lunches were great. They made sure my son had a "gluten-free lunch"

I’ve been on this tour 6 or 7 times and it is amazing each and every time I go. Oscar and his great team are incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate about the whales. It’s a small boat so you will get close to these magnificent creatures. This trip was one of the best! We saw at least 6 breaches of these beautiful animals right out of the water....this is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed. I will be going back again next year!

Ocean Friendly delivered the whales big time. I know there is luck involved, but we had a wonderful experience. We were seeing whales most of the excursion. Our guides were trained naturalists, eager to describe the ecology of the Bay, explain what we were seeing. They made an effort to drop an underwater microphone so that we could hear the singing (and we did), and then find a spot where we could hear the singing again without the help of electronics. This was better than we had hoped for, and I highly recommend them if you are in PV in whale season.

This past February 2020, I had the pleasure of a second experience with Ocean Friendly whale Watching tour and they did not disappoint again! I am a whale lover, I have traveled alot to see the majestic mammals and I have to say being in Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas is amazing.....the knowledge and the experience was and still is the best way to see these majestic mammals and others....my goal was to capture a breach on the camera, I have seen many breaches , however always caught the end of it or just seen the after splash...this time I got to photograph a breach and totally enjoy seeing these mammals in their element....so amazing!
