Departing early in the morning in a comfortable van you will drive down the Costanera Highway and along the Pacific Ocean for about 1 ½ hour to the town of Sierpe. There, you'll stop for 30 minutes to eat a tasty breakfast (not included). After breakfast you will board a cozy boat and cruise down the Sierpe River for 45 minutes through the largest Mangrove swamp in Central America, watching the abundant wildlife along the shores. Once through the Sierpe River mouth and into the Pacific Ocean you will start the search for some of the 5 species of Dolphins, Whales and/or possibly the Sea Turtles that inhabit these waters. Please take note that during the months of April and May the whales emigrate therefore there will be no whale observation during these two months. Our guide will illustrate the trip with interesting facts about these fascinating mammals and their natural history. The spectacular views of Drake Bay, Caño Island and Violines Island will amaze you. When you get hungry there will be a delicious picnic lunch and then get back to Dolphins and Whales watching. Around 3:00 p.m. the group will start to head back to Sierpe and to Dominical.
