Whale Watching Tours – December to April

Every year the most acrobatic of all whales, the Humpback, travels from the cold waters of the north to Banderas Bay’s warm tropical surroundings, the perfect environment to mate and give birth, before returning to cooler waters during our hot summers. Its arrival begins around mid-December and extends to around the end of March.

Humpback whales are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the world’s oceans. Become one with the ocean and her inhabitants, as the Ally Cat turns off her engines, and sets sail on her own. Listen to the eery moans and haunting cries, as they enchant and entertain everyone on board.

Our Marine Specialists and crew are eager to share their abundant knowledge and experience about the secrets of these magnificent creatures. Watch, as the massive 50-ton males breach (jump) out of the water, to impress the females – and YOU! If you’re lucky, you will look into the eyes of a Humpback mother, as her newborn calf dances and plays alongside our boat.

Join us for a once in a lifetime experience with this magnificent yearly visitors of our bay – the Humpbacks in all their glory!

What Our Guests Have To Say

I loved it so much!

They have awesome crew members that were really nice. It was probably the coolest thing I’ve ever done. There were whales about twenty feet away from our boat! We also saw a dolphin scratching it’s self on the bottom of the boat! We could almost touch it! We had an awesome time at the caves. Every time I come to mexico I’m going to go on the ally cat. I strongly recommend you try it sometime.
