Panama’s unique location as the Heart of the Americas means the visiting of Humpback whales from the South and the Northern hemispheres. These majestic creatures are one of the larger baleens with adult males ranging between 40 and 52 feet and weighing up to 40 tons! Every year, during the months of July to October populations of Humpbacks from the Southern Hemisphere visit the pacific waters of the Isthmus of Panama. Their breeding, calving, and nursing provides our naturalists the perfect opportunity to share the fascinating natural history of the giant acrobats.
While on tour guests take part in collecting data for Panacetacea, Panama’s leading Non-Profit Organization for the study and conservation of marine mammals. With your help, Isthmian Adventures staff collects data on every single encounter for Panacetacea’s scientific data bank. This information is used to establish conservation strategies and protect marine mammal habitats and their populations in Panama.
There is also the opportunity to see other marine sea life such as dolphins, other species of whales and sea birds! All Isthmian Adventure whale watching tour guides are certified naturalists with expertise in Cetacean natural history and are committed to following the regulations and laws of Panama for Cetacean observation and conservation.
