Two times yearly the Costa Rican South Pacific region receives a spectacular group of amazing visitors: the Humpback Whales.
Osa is one of the preferred spots for these giant and lovely mammals, if you are interested in whales watching we have the perfect tour for you.
There are two different migrations during the year, whales coming from the North stay here from December to April, and the others coming from the South stay from July to October.
Whale watching is impressive for the mind of people who have the possibility to live the experience; whales come here looking for mate and birth their calves; looking for the love of female whales, males compete, sometimes with physically fending. Part of the courtship ritual are spectacular jumps out of the water, elaborated bubble displays and sounds like songs, all these to exhibit their abilities and make fall in love some pretty female.
During the tour sea turtles, dolphins, stingrays, and other marine life are commonly seen out in the water. The tour also includes some time for snorkeling.
Enjoy the whale watching tour in Osa, If you see them you´ll never forget us!
