    What to Expect
    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Vallarta Natours, Calle Popa Muelle I4, Puerto Vallarta Mexico

    Meet your guide and group at the marina at 8:45am,(or 1:20pm) to depart no later than 9am( or 1 e0pm). You guide will introduce you to the wonders of humpback whales and the environment on board a boat, as the captain starts looking for whales.
    As soon as whales are spotted, you will get close. You will also learn interesting facts about whales and you can ask any questions as your guide will surely explain all that you see. Throughout the tour, you will try to find different groups of whales, but all depends on Mother Nature. Each spotting can last up to 30 minutes in order to have a responsible whale watching activity.
    Lunch is provided around noon when the boat turns into a 360° marine view deli-restaurant. You will be back to the marina around 1pm, after having had a lot of fun.
