Every year, between December and April, humpback whales can be seen in the waters around Punta de Mita. They leave their summer feeding grounds, migrating from Northern California to mate and give birth in the warm, calm waters of Banderas Bay. Watch as giant males gain the attention of females by putting on a magical show of breaching, slapping their tails and fins, and singing. Witness mothers nurturing and teaching their curious calves. Whales are so abundant here you can see them while eating breakfast from the penthouse balcony, surfing the lineup, touring on your paddleboard and from our private boat charters.
