Whale Watching and more, feat. Caño Island

August to October is Humpback Whale time... Get our Caño Island tour with a cetacean twist!

The whale watching tour starts at the river town of Sierpe.

We will first navigate the mangrove forest of the Rio Sierpe basin, where we can spot crocodiles, macaws, sloths and snakes.


We will then cross to the open sea in front of Drake Bay, where we will spend a good portion of our time looking out for and enjoying the company of humpback whales, that come here to mate, breed and feed for a spectacular show of jumping, splashing, blowing and singing.


Once at Caño Island we will do some snorkeling, have lunch and touch land for a visit at the ranger station to learn about the island's indigenous history.


We will then make our way back to Sierpe through the Islas Violines bird sanctuary via Guarumal, a magical and remote assembly of rocks that host a colony of hundreds of different seabirds.
