Private Whale Watching Tour at the Pearl Islands departing from Panama City

Between the months of June to November, the Pacific Coast of Panama is the scenario of one of the great wonders of nature: the migration of humpback whales in their path of more than 5,000 miles (8,000 km approx.) from both the Arctic and Antarctica, looking for warm waters to mate, calve and raise their young.

In this private boat tour, you'll depart from Panama City to the Pearl Islands archipelago (1 hour and a half travel distance). You will have the opportunity to not only watch the whales but to practice some fishing, snorkeling or simply hit several beaches and do island hopping in this spectacular paradise that is the archipelago. You'll be onboard our Proline 27', a powerboat that has a private enclosed bathroom, shade, a nice sofa with cushions in the bow with a secondary convertible shade, freshwater tank to rinse, professional marine stereo within other extras. Because of its size and maneuverability, it offers better chances to get close enough of the whales.

    Stop At: Pearl Islands, Pearl Islands, Panama Province

    Our whale watching tour takes us to the Pearl Islands archipelago, the main nesting area for the humpback whales that visit the Panamanian Pacific. We will respectfully follow the whales we encounter, having care of not disturbing them. As the vessel is quite maneuverable, we can approach them a lot while still maintaining the correct distance. As this is a private charter, your group gets to decide how long would you like to see the wales. There's also the possibility of doing snorkeling, fishing (all equipment onboard) and of course some island hopping (the archipelago offers beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters).

    Duration: 8 hours
