Ground transfer from any hotel in Venao Beach to Playa El Arenal where you will go by boat in search of the whales. In the area around Isla Iguana it is very common to observe dolphins as well as small (harmless) sharks, turtles and – between July and October – the humpback whales that migrate from the cold waters to the Panamanian Pacific coast with warmer temperatures to give light.
The captain and the guide are trained in the responsible observation of cetaceans and will explain many interesting facts about whales while – with a bit of luck – observe these giants of the sea. After whale watching, he goes to Isla Iguana to enjoy the beach. A picnic-style lunch will be served directly on the island’s beach.
Also known as Megaptera Novaeangliae (scientific name), the Humpback Whale is familiar to Barbary Whales. Adults reach a length of 12 to 16 m (39 to 52 ft) and weigh around 36,000 kg (79,000 lb). This whale has a unique body shape, long pectoral fins and a knotty head.
This species is known for its jumps and other distinctive surface behaviors, which makes it popular with whale watchers. The males produce a complex song that lasts up to 20 minutes, repeating for hours. Its purpose is not clear, although it may have a role in mating.
