We booked with Dolphin Tours to see the whales with friends. We had a wonderful 1/2 day tour with Dolphin Tours in Bahia Ballena de Osa,Puntarenas,Costa Rica. We arrived from Golfito about 30 minutes early and they were able to recommend a local soda for an excellent breakfast. Since we had been shopping the day before in the duty free port, they offered to let us park our vehicles in their enclosed yard where they normally store their boats. We had a total of 8 passengers with 2 tour guides. They provide life jackets and snorkeling equipment for anyone interested in snorkeling. None of us went snorkeling because the water was a little cloudy with the recent rains. The tour lasted almost 4 hours and we were able to see many of the whales that had migrated to the area with their babies. The guides are very knowledgeable and work with other boats to locate the whales. We saw some beautiful caves and beaches, but no dolphins this trip. We were offered cold, sweet pineapple and watermelon for snacks, along with bottled water. Excellent tour! Don't miss this if you are in the area.
