Whale Watching in Coiba National Park
Epic whale encounters are one of nature’s highlights at Islas Secas
Not one but two populations of humpback whales pass our shores at different times of the year, and we are perfectly placed to watch them breach and blow in the waves. Watch their graceful antics from the resort, or take a sensitive excursion that respects these magnificent marine mammals.
Whale watching in the Gulf of Chiriquí and Coiba National Park offers an exceptional experience, the only known wintering area shared by both southern and northern hemisphere humpback whales. A small population migrates here between December and April, and July to October sees the arrival of a larger population of breeding humpbacks.

During December to April, there are occasional sightings from the resort. The chances are higher from Coiba National Park, but this is not guaranteed.
