The highlight of Panama’s green season is the arrival of the humpback whales. Whale Watching from Panama City allows visitors to see them in the Pearl Islands close to the nation’s capital. Adult humpback whales weight about 36,000 kilos with a length of 12 to 16 meters. They migrate from the Antarctic to give birth and nurse their young in the warm tropical waters of Panama. A bilingual tour guide will explain all about the humpback whale migrations. It is also possible to see dolphins jumping around the catamaran on route to the Pearl Islands.
Whale Watching from Panama City tour is set up in an all inclusive style. Breakfast includes fruit, vanilla muffin, plantains, sandwich (ham, turkey and cheese or caprese) and a beverage station with juice, coffee and tea. Lunch is served in a BBQ style on the beach in Chapera Island with chicken, pork chops and chorizo. There is also rice with vegetables, coleslaw salad and strudel for dessert. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions when booking the Whale Watching from Panama City tour.
Guest will have time to spend on the beach. Isla Chapera transports you to a paradisiacal island with white sand and crystal clear water. This island is famous because it was the place where the television show Survivor was filmed in Panama. Chapera is part of the Pearl Islands Archipelago which are a group of over 90 islands located off the Bay of Panama City in the Pacific coast of the country. On the way back to Panama City you will see more humpback whales and dolphins, as well as the sunset.
