WHALE WATCHING

The warm, clear waters are optimal as a mating and birth ground. Humpbacks from the southeast pacific spend the summers in the ocean in front of southern coast off Chile. Once the winter comes they move further north to their mating and birth grounds in Panama (specifically Pedasi), off the coast of Azuero and Chiriqui as the waters are shallow and warmer. During June and November come hump backs whales from cold waters to Pedasi to mate and give births to their calves in the warm waters – the ideal spot is Isla Iguana/Refugio de Vida where they gather off the coral reef in front of the island. By the end of October they start their return journey back to the southeast pacific.
