On January 18-19, 2016, 24 guides and fishermen from Barra de Potosi, Zihuatanejo, Ixtapa and la Mahahua attended a two-day whale watch training program with us. They received an extensive education on humpback whale biology, behavior, ecology, migration, best boat practices andregulations. They are now the local leaders in marine biodiveristy ecotours and we recommend that you support safe, informed whale watching by going on a trip with them!
If you go with one of the guides below and would like to arrange for a bilingual early career marine biologist/naturalist to be onboard the boat, share our scientific process with you and answer questions contact one of the guides above and request that they send a member of the Whales of Guerrero Team out with them. We charge 600 pesos for naturalist services on marine tours. We need at least one week's advance notice to make sure we will have a person available for this service.
