Dolphin and Whale Spotting on Golfo Dulce

2-3 Hours | Boat Tour, Snorkeling and Wildlife Viewing

Go out in search of dolphins and other amazing marine life of the Golfo Dulce, one of the four tropical fjords that exist in the world. You will take a boat to enjoy the beautiful landscapes that surround the gulf, seeing forests that seem to disappear at the bottom of the ocean and spotting bottle-nosed dolphins and other cetaceans like the humpback whale, which enters the gulf in the migratory period between July and October each year.
We'll also visit some islets where you can do some snorkeling and potentially see large sea turtles and observe some species of fish in the area. After swimming we prepare to take a refreshment, to take new strength and undertake our return. We'll make a final stop to visit the farm of oysters cultivated by the locoal ASOPEZ association, where we will explain everything concerning this activity.
