Your tour takes off from Manuel Antonio and heads south along the coast towards the town of Uvita.  During the one-hour trip, your guide will point out towns along the way providing information about Dominical, Matapalo and Uvita beaches.

Once you arrive at Marino Ballena National Park, you will board a boat to navigate the coast for approximately three hours in search of whales and dolphins.  You will go past beautiful rock formations:  Roca Ballena, Las Cavernas in front of Playa Ventana, Roca Viuda and Tres Hermanas.

This tour gives you the opportunity to spot pilot whales and humpback whales with their babies during their migration following the warm waters of the Central Pacific Ocean.  You will be able to jump off the boat for a swim or a snorkel if conditions allow it.

Please Note:  The departure location of this tour is at Manuel Antonio – 107 miles from San Jose.  Transportation from San Jose to Manuel Antonio is not included.
