Whales are now migrating to their winter breeding and calving grounds in the warmer tropical waters of the Pacific. Returning south during spring. The migration path of these majestic animals means they will be in close proximity to the bay. As a result, tours can end up seeing up to several whales per tour with only a short trip on the boat to the main sites.
