Humpback Whale in islas marietas

The Humpback Whale and their arrivals to Puerto Vallarta

Humpback Whale comes from the family of “cetaceans”, whose species including whales, dolphins, and porpoises. In the particular line of whales it is divided into two Baleen whales (whales, humpback whales, and gray whales) and gear (sperm whales, killer whales, beaked whales, narwhals, dolphins, and porpoises).

In Mexico, we visit the blue whales, gray whales, dolphins, and sperm whales; particularly to Puerto Vallarta from December begins the arrival of the gray whale. These whales take up to three months from their journey from the icy waters of the Arctic to Puerto Vallarta, where the route is about 20 000 km, for the sole purpose of mating.

The reason mating in tropical waters is due to the warm waters, and the waters of Puerto Vallarta are tropical. When mating season comes around they make their yearly trip towards the center of the equator (to tropical environments) where the temperature is warmer and they can mate and bare offspring.

The Whale Watching season starts when these mammals arrive to Puerto Vallarta and ends in the middle of March. When they depart because feeding season starts; they can often be found swimming near the upper and lower hemispheres gathering food. In the zone of Banderas Bay, there is a lot of companies selling these tours (Whale Watching), it is an excellent experience and opportunity to see these creatures swimming around your boat.

Also this year some killer whales appeared in the zone, they just were surrounding some boats, that is an alert to the authorities because is the first time they are here and probably is because the climate change.

Nevertheless, the ocean ecosystem in Puerto Vallarta is one of the most beautiful in Mexico.

As for not less mentioned but equally important the dolphins, they are always tropical waters, therefore they are always round in Puerto Vallarta, but this issue will have its special section.
