In the destination there are several service providers that offer this activity, so, when hiring, it is important that visitors check that the boat has federal permission from the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat).

In addition, to make the trip much more pleasant, you must be accompanied by a biologist, who will explain the precautionary measures that should be considered when making the trip.

The whales give a show with jumps and flutters, which can be observed just a few meters away from the boat or between 200 and 500 meters from the beach.

Puerto Vallarta is considered one of the most complete sun and beach destinations in the Mexican Republic, having a wide variety of ecotourism activities, without neglecting its responsibility to the environment.
