Join in a real whale research
expedition, where you'll work closely with Mazatlan's
premier expert on whales to find, get close to,
and collect information on these magnificent creatures.
No other tour in Mazatlan gets you this type of
up-close-and-personal experience with the whales
- this tour is truly unique.
The primary purpose for these
tours is to help fund whale research and preservation
efforts, and a portion of the cost of your tour
will go directly to these efforts. It's not
only the funding - your crew will be collecting
information on the ecology and behavior of the whales,
their behavior and distribution, habitats and abundance,
giving you a true hands-on experience. This
is one you won't want to miss!
