Explore the coast of Mazatlan on a mission to meet up close and personal with one of the earth's most fascinating creatures: the humpback whale. Take part in a whale ecology project and learn about their lives while supporting its study and conservation.


  • Discover the lives of humpback whales on a whale watching adventure
  • Enjoy personal attention from expedition leaders and invited marine scientists on board
  • Listen to live whale songs with a hydrophone
  • Support local marine life research and conservation programs
  • Find out about their ecology, study, and conservation in Mexico


Join a team of marine biologists, ecologists, and naturalists who will guide your whale watching adventure. Listen to outstanding commentary about the local environment. Gain real-time insight into the whales’ ecology and behavior while collecting scientific data for ongoing research and conservation projects. During your encounters, observe whales spouting while cruising along, or powerfully breaching and tail slapping while playing or fighting. It is breeding season in the Mexican Pacific so there is a lot going on! If you're lucky enough, you may find females nursing their calves, or maybe listen to the intriguing songs performed by males as part of their courtship ritual. By taking part in this expedition, you are contributing directly to marine research and monitoring activities led by Onca Explorations and its partners for the conservation of whales and dolphins in this important region of the Mexican Pacific and the Gulf of California.
