Thalia was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. She was pleasant to be with and made us a wonderful lunch. I would highly recommend this tour.

Everything was perfect. Very knowledgeable guide and seeing so many whales was exciting. Having the smaller boat just for our group of 8 was ideal.

Thalia is amazing and so passionate about her work and the whales. My family had an awesome day with her and saw many whales. Along with a couple directly coming next to the boat we got to experience seeing a mother and baby playing in the water. Our perfect day was finished off with some delicious sandwiches and homemade cookies. Highly recommended this whale watching tour it was the highlight of our trip!

Vallarta Natours Whale Watching Tours
These tours are managed by Thalia, who is certainly an expert on whales. She does an excellent job of guiding you and teaching about these wonderful mammals. Also, as a marine biologist, she is always looking for the well being of the creatures while we watch them.
In Puerto Vallarta there is a significant number of tour operators that offer whale-watching tours. However, a whale watching tour with Vallarta Natours is a totally different experience. First, Thalia is very knowledgeable about whales, dolphins, turtles and other creatures you will find on the way. We specially liked that she took her time to explain and engage with our teenagers and kids, with explanations for all, at all levels. Second, her boat is small (10 persons max.) which allows for a more intimate experience and you will not miss any action or information.
Third, and very important, Thalia and Andres, her captain, have a lot of experience to search for the whales. Finding them is not that easy, but they did find two groups of whales courting and fighting. I especially remember a male whale whacking another male with its tail while fighting for a female… ouch!
Watching these whales up close and personal is a lifetime experience. Thalia and her captain will make sure you get the most out of it. If you like nature, you are interested in the whales, or if you want to enjoy an experience like no other, we recommend you take a whale watching tour with Thalia and Vallarta Natours. We are sure you will enjoy it as much as we did.

The tour itself was great, our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. However, the boat was smaller than expected for a group of our size, and the lunch was very disappointing. But if you don't care about the food, I'd highly recommend this organization.
