Whale Watching: Book a tour with a trained guide

Look for this sticker on your whale watch boat to make sure you’re working with a certified whale watch captain!

Whale watch season is December 15-March 20

We have been offering safe whale watching and safe dolphin watching programs in Guerrero since 2014. Trained guides gain access to a whale spotting network, allowing them to work together to find whales and to coordinate to give the whales space.

Working with a trained guide increases your chances of finding whales and dolphins and you will have the security of knowing that the animals are not stressed by your presence. Whales and dolphins can be dangerous, even deadly, but with respect a culture of respect for nature, we are developing  friendships with the whales and dolphins in our region.

Whale watch prices range from 3500 pesos – 9000 pesos ($180-$350 USD) for the boat, depending on the captain and the boat. Contact the captains below to make a reservation.

If would like one of our Whales of Guerrero bilingual naturalists to join you on your tour, contact one of the captains below and request that they bring a Whales of Guerrero naturalist out with them. We charge 1500 pesos/$75 USD and require 5 days advance notice to join the certified guide of your choice on your whale watch.

If you would like to support the Whales of Guerrero at the same time that you go whale watching with our team and a trained guide, you may book a tour through our AirBnB Whale Watch Experience page.

The guides who attended our safe whale watch training for the 2023-2024 season are below.
