Humpback Whale Watching
For many years whales and dolphins have been spotted due to the quality of Pedasí warm waters, and most importantly because it is a perfect place for the reproduction and procreation of the Humpback Whale.

The Boat Trip
So after the stay for the night on SELINA Pedasí, at approximately 5:30 am, the boat tour begins on a visit to Pedasí Bay, in search of the beautiful cetaceans. The sighting of the Humpback Whale is more likely to happen between the noted hours, but that is still no guarantees that a sighting will happen.
The joyful boat tour is full of beautiful sights as it navigates the surroundings of Iguana Island, which is a protected wildlife refuge with beautiful trails. On the island the groups can enjoy white sands, snorkeling in the coral, and a Visitor’s Center. There are other points of interest in the island such as the lighthouse, and from the distance one can appreciate the nests of thousands of migratory birds.

I was lucky on this day! I received a private tour being I was the only one scheduled. My tour guide happens to also be "the guy" or should I say the founder of this tour. He "Rick" is an extremely knowledgeable person and not just the tour itself. He is completely bilingual and personable. Be ready to do some walking as this tour requires you to use your legs for hiking and visiting multiple places. This was my favorite tour while I was visiting Panama.
