2015 Whale Watching Options

The 2015 whale watching season is officially underway in Puerto Peñasco and is making quite a ripple. On January 8th, “whale whisperer” Captain Oscar of Del Mar Charters shared a video of the season’s first fin whales spotted near Las Conchas, which was quickly followed up by a second video featuring SUP enthusiast Brad Olson paddle boarding out to the fins – not to mention the dolphins!whales-jan2015 (1)

While the southern part of the Sea of Cortez is particularly known for whale watching opportunities from about December to March, for the past three years Puerto Peñasco has arguably found its spot on the map – offering sightings of fin whales as well as humpbacks through mid-March or so.
