Panama Whale Watching Tours from Panama City


Panama Whale Watching in the Pearl Islands

Looking for some of the best whale watching Panama has to offer? Believe it or not it can be found just off the Pacific Coast of Panama City! Catamaran tours to the Pearl Islands and small private charters will enable you to discover the majestic Humpback whales in Panama up close! Take a look at our list of Panama whale watching tours and choose the best option for you!

The warm waters around the Equator give the ideal conditions for humpback whales to breed and protect their offspring during their winter season. Panama, being in the middle of this transit route, welcomes whales from the southern hemisphere from July through October, while whales from the northern hemisphere are found from January to March. Whale watching in Panama is possible nearly all year long! And the best part, most Panama whale watching adventures depart right from Panama City! It is no wonder whale watching is among the top things to do in Panama City!
