Witness the impressive Humpback Whales on this unique sailing adventure through the placid waters of Bahia de Banderas (Banderas Bay). Passengers on this remarkable tour will have the rare opportunity to sail alongside these massive marine mammals. Our unforgettable four-hour whale watching tour is the most memorable tour available to you during your Puerto Vallarta vacation get-away.
Take to the water on our thirty-eight-foot sailboat, the Rhiannon, with our knowledgeable bilingual staff as your guides. While you are on this tour, our expert guides will share with you their knowledge about these incredible marine animals and their habitats. Every winter the whales travel thousands of miles to the warm waters of Banderas Bay (Bahia de Banderas) from the cold waters off the coast of Alaska. From December to March, over two thousand Humpback whales make their home in Banderas Bay to court, mate, birth, and nurse their young. If you are lucky, you may get to witness the rare sight of a massive female Humpback nursing her young calf. The sight of a whale rising up to forty feet out of the water or splashing their giant tail is truly unforgettable. In addition to observing these beautiful cetaceans, you may also spot dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles, all of which make their home in Banderas Bay.
Unlike other whale watching tours on small boats with loud outboard motors or high-passenger motorized catamarans, our four-hour sailing cruise is quiet and gives you the best conditions for an intimate experience. The Rhiannon carries a maximum of sixteen passengers, so while we take you on a lovely sailing loop you will have the best experience possible.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Pegaso Whale Watch Sailing Adventure is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
