See the giants of the sea in their natural habitat on this day trip from Cali to bahía Málaga, where you'll be able to see majestic humpbacks leap from the water.

Whale Watching from Cali

The tour meets in Carrera 9 in Cali at 4:30 am either at your hotel or at Carrera 9 #3-01 in Cali. From there we'll climb aboard a bus to hit the road to Colombia's main port, Buenaventura. Following a journey of two and a half hours, we arrive at our destination, and will celebrate the fact with a delicious breakfast.

Then we'll climb aboard a boat, sailing the waters of the Pacific over the course of an hour, keeping our eyes peeled for the humpback whales commonly spotted in the area - where they live for three months of the year.

Then the tour sets sail to Playa Juanchaco. Having arrived, we'll climb aboard a boat to once again coexist with these majestic marine mammals - and where it's also possible to see turtles, dolphins and pelicans.

With an unforgettable morning among these giants of the sea, you'll have the afternoon free to soak up the sun on the beach before your bus takes you back to Cali, arriving at 10 pm. We'll drop you off at the meeting point Carrera 9 or in the San Antonio district.
