Whales are not only highly intelligent creatures of infinite beauty they are also world travelers, journeying more than 12,000 miles each year. With any place on earth to choose from, where do you think their favorite place is? Bingo!  Right here in Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas.

The season has begun. Their giant tails and breath-taking breaches are beginning to be seen around the bay. And if you walk any of our 51 miles of exquisite white sand beaches, you’ll likely see one.  Trust me a mamma whale and her calf, swimming by, will turn your knees to jelly. And if you get in a boat, which Puerto Vallarta has tons of you may be able to get in close.  You can do an organized charter or do what I do and take a Panga manned by a local fisherman and head out to sea.

I guarantee you, even your teenage kids, will drop their smart phones and be stunned by the size, the agility and majesty of these wonderful giants.  I’ve seen a lot of them, but every time is like the first time. It literally is a thrill that never gets old. I will never forget the first time I saw them, walking the beach in Nuevo Vallarta. My dog’s head turned, and I followed her eyes to a spout of water a few hundred feet offshore. Then I saw its tail waving in the air and a moment later she leapt for the sky. Breathtaking. Unforgettable. Life changing.

Here in Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas we are masters of play on land or on the sea. Dave and Vallarta Yacht Company can help you go out there and have the time of your life. Then when you’re ready for land again there are hundreds of sensational places to eat, from food as art to tacos off a cart.

Dress up or down, swing all night and swing it off in a hammock all day. Eat, drink, make merry, indulge, enjoy, rock, raft, swing and play. Puerto Vallarta and the Bay of Banderas is a hot spot that is one of the coolest places on earth.
