Join Onca Explorations on this exciting adventure while we cruise the coast of Mazatlan in search of one of the most fascinating creatures on earth: the humpback whale!
Marine scientist and naturalist will guide your adventure out sea with outstanding commentary about local environment and sharing real-time insight into whale’s ecology and behavior while collecting scientific data for on-going research projects.
During the encounters you may observe whales spouting while cruising along, or powerfully breaching and tail slapping while playing or fighting. It is breeding season in the Mexican Pacific so there is a lot going on! … If lucky enough, we may find females nursing their calves, or listen to the intriguing song performed by males as part of their courtship ritual!
Experience a real hands-on research expedition and meet-up close and personal with the giants of the sea while supporting our marine research and conservation efforts.
