This is our third trip with Anne and first on the Taboga Express. We were on a private tour and returned to Panama City on the Taboga Express, enjoying a very different experience. We were very impressed at how much families were enjoying both their time together as well as seeing the whales and learning more about them. Photography aboard the Catamaran is easy while it is moving slowly, or stopped to watch the whales. We were also surprised at how many Panama folks did not know of the whales on their doorstep. Great to see them enjoying this rich experience. Anne's informative narrative and the helpful crew make this a one of a kind day. Lunch and transfer to and from the boat via local pangas, along with time on the beach tops it off, But, the greatest thing is to see the surprise and delight on a youngster's face when an enthusiastic young whale starts its acrobatics!

We were fortunate to participate in a whale watching trip to see the Humpback whales in July. I was so impressed with the entire Whale Watching Panama team. These creatures are simply amazing! If you have an opportunity to go, don't miss it! You will not regret your experience and you will learn a ton while you're there. Check them out on their face book page or website, it's full of great information so you're prepared for your day.

The new partnership with the Taboga Express Ferry is a winner. The joint venture with Anne's experience and expertise and the new, large comfortable boat made for a memorable all day experience that was thrilling and not fatiguing. The inclusion of a lunch stop on Isla Contadora makes for a perfect excursion experience. If you have tried whale watching from a small boat, or huge boat you must try this on a perfect sized boat. If you have not tried whale watching, this is the way to do it. Caution, it may be addictive. Anne, the whale whisperer.

This was a most memorable day! Anne was a superb guide, and we really enjoyed all the knowledge she shared with us about the Dolphins and the brudy's whales we saw. She also has an extensive knowledge of Panama.
We loved that she never made us feel rushed, she just wanted to make sure we had a great trip. We definitely recommend whale watching Panama for a great way to see some of the pearl islands, and watch the Dolphins and whales along the way.
