whale watching in panama

A true highlight of Islas Secas’ marine safari experience is the exceptional whale encounters. Few experiences in the world can compare.

Two different populations of humpback whales visit Panama’s Gulf of Chiriquí. There is a small population that migrates from feeding areas in the north that is seen between December and April. Between July and October, a much larger population of humpback whales migrates from feeding areas off Antarctica and Chile.
