Pegaso Whale Watch Sailing Adventure


  • A Puerto Vallarta Must-Do from December Through March
  • Sail Out to the Waters of the Banderas Bay to See the Humpback Whales That Make an Annual Trip to the Waters Off the Coast of Puerto Vallarta

Tour Summary

You will always remember your experience on the fabulous waters of Bahia de Banderas and the coastal Pacific witnessing the gigantic cetaceans, the Humpback Whales, as they breach the surface. This unforgettable excursion allows you to enjoy both sailing and whale watching; sailing is a truly eco-friendly method of witnessing these creatures without disturbing them or polluting their habitat. This full-day ecological expedition will surely be the apex of your trip to Puerto Vallarta.

Depart from Marina Vallarta with the friendliest crew on Banderas Bay. Our thirty eight foot sailboat, the Rhiannon, is a sleek craft that smoothly cuts through the offshore waves with very little difficulty. Our expert personnel will educate passengers about these astonishingly smart marine mammals. Every year, these remarkable cetaceans venture over great distances from the chilly waters of the Bering Sea. From the start of December through the end of March, more than two thousand Humpbacks migrate to the pleasant protected waters of Bahia de Banderas. These massive animals breed, and birth and nurse their calves in these warm waters. Keep a lookout for nursing mothers with their newly born calves. Be sure to bring a camera to take some action photos of the whales breaching the surface of the water. You will be delighted by the sight of the spray jetting from a Humpback’s blowhole. A tail splash is also quite a dramatic display of power to witness firsthand.

Instead of riding in a cramped zodiac with a noisy outboard, or being crammed into an over-booked motorized party catamaran, join us for a serene cruise aboard a sleek sailboat to witness these beautiful marine mammals in the wild; we limit our whale watching sails to 16 passengers.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Pegaso Whale Watch Sailing Adventure is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
