South Pacific - Dominical
Combo Tour – Whale Watching and Dolphin Encounters

The Combo Tour is the best option to see the most of the Marino Ballena National Park. The tour departs from Punta Uvita Beach and visits the famous Punta Uvita Whale’s Tail, Ballena Island, Tres Hermanas Islets and Ventana Sea Caves. During the tour we search Humpback Whales (seasonally between mid-July to late October and mid-December through late March) and Pilot Whales as well as three two  different species of resident dolphins. When granted the opportunity, you might see and hear the Humpback Whales and or observe the acrobatic displays of the dolphins. We also visit the coral and rock reefs to snorkel and observe the wonderful marine wildlife. While cruising in the boat, enjoy the scenic beauty of the coastline of Costa Ballena; observe the diversity of pelagic birds in the Islets and the amazing caverns of Ventanas Beach (if conditions permit our experienced captain will navigate the boat through these wonderful natural water passages to give you a spectacular view!)
