No puedo negar que todos los animales que vimos: tortugas verdes, ballenas jorobadas, pelícanos y lindos delfines; me llenaron de alegría y emoción. Sin embargo, por condiciones climáticas y otras razones que no conozco, el proceso de subir al muelle luego de finalizado el tour, tardó más de una hora, fue incómodo y peligroso, ya que nos cambiaron de embarcación...

We booked the whale watching tour with this company and overall we were impressed. That said we could really have done without the pick up guy arriving 20 minutes early at 6.10 instead of 6.30am. We could also have done without having the 35 minute wait on the quay while everybody else booked on the tour turned up. if they... More

....still a great tour. Pickup from our hotel was punctual. The guides were organised. The boat had life jackets that were largely functional. The guides on the boats were academics or students that clearly knew their subject and were genuinely passionate about their subject. We saw humpbacks within 10 minutes of leaving the dock and had a good hour and... More

Great Whale excursion!!. What made the difference to me was that a biologist was in charge of explaining everything during the tour. Icing on the cake, the tour finished with a visit to a small museum to us to get more information of whales, sharks and history about Mancora.

Guides are knowledgeable and English speaking marine biologists. Research conducted at same time as tourist visits. They have land-based watchers to maximise success rate of sightings. We were quoted a 100% success rate since July 2015. Slightly wet and bumpy ride but fantastic experience! Life jackets provided! Our questions were answered by the museum tour at the end of the...

Everything was arranged perfectly! We got picked up in time, drove to the dock, registered and got on board. Both spanish and english guides who give a lot of information. The captain was constantly calling to spot and help out others. We saw a male, female and calf and later a couple who were breaching!! We got crackers, water, fruit... More

My partner and I were staying in Mancora and decided to book a whale watching trip with Pacifico Adventures. We emailed them the day before and they booked us on there and then. For 120 soles each we were picked up from our hostel in Mancora and taken out on the boat for three hours. It was amazing and we... More

Whale watching with Pacifico Adventures was wonderful in all aspects. We were able to make our whale watching tour reservations prior to travelling to Perú via email and a quick phone call. This was very helpful as we arrived in Máncora just the night before our tour. As part of the tour cost, Pacifico Adventures picked us up at our... More
