Local Attractions

Whale Watching

30 minutes away
The months from November through March mark whale-watching season in Riviera Nayarit. Experience the spectacular scene of humpback whales swimming along the coast as they arrive in the warm waters for mating season. You can witness the playful whales from the beach, however if you want to get a closer look, whale-watching charters leave the docks of Punta Mita daily. Undoubtedly, one of the major attractions of the season are the whales that migrate to our shores from their feeding grounds along the northern coast of California, creating one of the most spectacular shows nature offers. Watching a 40-ton creature leap almost completely out of the water is an experience that cannot be forgotten. In spite of their tremendous size, these magnificent mammals are sensitive to sudden changes in their environment, which is why it's essential to protect them. In Mexico, laws regulate how whale-watching tours are conducted, since an improper encounter can harm these fascinating creatures.
