Whale-Watching Near Golfo Dulce

Few onboard experiences are as exciting as watching whales calving, breaching, fluking and slapping their pectoral fins on the water. Costa Rica's Pacific coast—particularly the Golfo Dulce—is prolific whale territory, where the massive beasts are often sighted close to shore. At various times of the year, humpbacks, orcas, pilots and other whale species share the waters with huge pods of dolphins—bottlenose, common and spinner. Whale sharks, the world's biggest fish, arrive in winter to feed on plankton blooms.
