Whale watch Vallarta

We had a trip booked for December but have received a email stating due to unforeseen circumstances no longer operating this season.

Can anyone suggest an alternative?

Should we book prior to arriving in resort as staying over Christmas period ?

My reason for choosing that company was it was a small group and had a marine biologist giving information.

Thank you in advance.

I second Nayarit’s suggestion, gone out twice with them and it was awesome. Enjoy!

Whale WatchingsSeason begins December 8, 2017 and closes March 23 2018.Since you are arriving in the end of December I would not book early but rather after the first week. The number of Humpback whales ail increase as the month and season progresses. To ensure you have a good boat and a space you can pick a day in advance online. There are full and half day trips departing from Puerto Vallarta marina, Nuevo Vallarta, La Cruz and Punta de Mita off the northernmost point, The Marietas Islandi area is also famous snorkeling and, birding , diving sportfisfishing. As the season progresses and the water cools the whales will enter the bay and closer to the shorelines.
