From USD 52
Enjoy the main attractions of the Machalilla National Park. Beach, whales and snorkel...
➡️In the morning... Enjoy Los Frailes Beach, one of the prettiest beaches in Ecuador, is set in Machalilla National Park and has exceptionally warm, clear waters – great for swimming and discovering the dry forest and their landscapes, animals, and flowers.
➡️In the afternoon... Whale Watching Tour. From June until October, humpback whales migrate more than 7,000 km from Antarctica to the shores of Machalilla National Park in Ecuador. This is a preferred area for humpbacks for mating and their calves born here.
During the tour, we will have the opportunity to find the whale´s active groups where many males fall in love with its female. We can enjoy the behavior of the mother with its calf (it reaches 4 meters long). Or just, we could see many whales traveling close to us. We are in a nursery and mating area for humpback whales.
This is the unique real opportunity to have direct contact with nature and enjoy the hearth of Machalilla National Park. At the end of whale watching, we will go to the Salango Island or other small islands and we have the chance to swimming or use a snorkel to enjoy the reef corals and other marine animals.
¡Enjoy the adventure¡
