Full description
Start the day at 6:00 AM with pickup from your hotel in Puerto Escondido. Head straight to the beach to board your early-morning sightseeing boat. Over the course of your 3-hour cruise, gaze at the stunning, crystal-clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, revelling in the beauty of the Oaxacan coast. Keep your eyes open for the panoply of sea life that call the waters surrounding Puerto Escondido home. Spot marine life such as whales, dolphins, or massive sea turtles. As you jet through the waters, your expert captain will find the best spots to give you the best chance of seeing the sea’s most beautiful marine life. Relax as you cruise through the calm waters, enjoying the sunrise over the pristine sea, and let nature surprise you with its beauty. After your cruise, you’ll head back to the dock to get the transportation back to your hotel.

Endless dolphins!! And turtles in the middle of the sea, and stingrays performing tricks especially for us... wonderful! The guide was also very informative and friendly. Great Tour!!

Although I booked the tour in English, neither the driver, nor the guide nor the captain spoke any word in English, I had to translate everything to other non Spanish speakers. Also, there wasn't any mention of whale watching, only dolphins. The experience was amazing, but the description of the tour is a bit different than what it entails.

Aside from the initial forgetfulness but the agency recovered by sending a person specifically to the hotel, we sailed for about two hours seeing whales, dolphins and turtles.
