We organize the Dolphin & Whale Watching Tour for you, so you can have peace of mind during your stay at Drake Bay Getaway.

Drake Bay, Osa Peninsula, is one of the finest places in Costa Rica for whale watching and dolphin spotting. During August and September, humpback whales come to these warm, calm waters to give birth and nurse their young calves.

This magical sight can be witnessed on this world-class boat tour; taking you around Caño Island Biological Reserve, and along the rugged coastline of Corcovado National Park.

Species here includes spotted dolphins, humpback whales, rough-toothed dolphins and the critically endangered Bryde’s Whale. These beautiful and ancient creatures can jump from the water with incredible grace and power.It is an experience like nothing else you have ever seen.

The whale and dolphin watching tour includes the opportunity to listen to the mysterious and haunting calls of the whales through an underwater microphone (or hydrophone).

Things to Note:
Boat rides are 'wet landings' and can be bumpy.
Wildlife spotting depends on weather and other conditions.
Minimum 4 people.
