Private Whale Watching Tour at the Pearl Islands departing from Panama City

Between the months of June to November, the Pacific Coast of Panama is the scenario of one of the great wonders of nature: the migration of humpback whales in their path of more than 5,000 miles (8,000 km approx.) from both the Arctic and Antarctica, looking for warm waters to mate, calve and raise their young.

In this private boat tour, you'll depart from Panama City to the Pearl Islands archipelago (1 hour and a half travel distance). You will have the opportunity to not only watch the whales but to practice some fishing, snorkeling or simply hit several beaches and do island hopping in this spectacular paradise that is the archipelago. You'll be onboard our Proline 27', a powerboat that has a private enclosed bathroom, shade, a nice sofa with cushions in the bow with a secondary convertible shade, freshwater tank to rinse, professional marine stereo within other extras. Because of its size and maneuverability, it offers better chances to get close enough of the whales.

Amazing tour with Captain Miguel who catered to all our requests- in particular assistance in locating a picture perfect location for a wedding proposal. Catering was delicious and was able to able to accommodate special dietary needs. He had a good sense of humor and was very engaging with the family which made everything more enjoyable. Would recommend wholeheartedly and would love to repeat.

We spent the day at sea with Miguel and had the most wonderful time! Although it turned out that the fish didn't want to play our game called fishing - we really didn't care. Miguel is so awesome and we enjoyed our time with him thoroughly. The boat was fully stocked with everything we could need and he also took us to eat at the most wonderful spot for lunch. The islands he took us to, the information he shared with us, and wildlife we spotted were just perfect. Thank you!!

We went with a group of 4 and had a private trip. Miguel was great. We chose not to fish. He took us to absolutely beautiful islands, and he and the other gentleman (whose name escapes me) pointed out if they saw any marine life. We got lucky and saw dolphins, which was definitely a highlight of the trip! Be prepared there was no shade on the boat, so wear sunblock and a hat that will stay on in the wind!
