Costa Rica Travel News – Whales Tail Costa Rica recently confirmed the return of whales to the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. In partnership with Whales Tail Costa Rica, Bahia Adventures provides Whale and Dolphin tours at theMarino Ballena National Park in Uvita, Costa Rica.
Humpback Whales come to the area known as the “Whales Tail” near Uvita, Costa Rica twice yearly. They travel down from the Arctic, arriving in December to April, while those coming from the Antarctic can be seen from early July to late October. The whales come for romance and baby-making, and return to give birth in the relative safety of the Costa Rican coastal waters. Calves are born swimming, and most are immediately aware of the presence of their mothers and the pod around them.Costa Rica offers the longest humpback whale watching season in the world.
Ideal conditions for the humpbacks breeding and calving exist in an area in the Pacific ocean stretching from Playa Dominical in Costa Rica down to the Panamanian border. This area is known as ”The Costa Rican Thermal Convection Dome”, and it features a shallow layer of warm water that lies on top of low-oxygen, cold water, creating the perfect ecosystem for thriving marine life.
Watching these magnificent creatures in such a beautiful setting is an experience of a lifetime. If you are interested in seeing these magnificent creatures up close, please visit Whales Tail Costa Rica.com for more information or email [email protected]
