Humpback Whale Watching in Manabi, Ecuador is during the months of June - September. The Humpback Whale can be observed throughout the Ecuadorian Coast, specifically along the Province of Manabi's coastline. This is where the humpbacks migrate from Antarctica towards to the bodies of warm waters. The Humpback Whale prefer this environment in order to reproduce and foster their young. The area also attract Dolphins.


Humpback whales are animals that live and travel in groups of up to 10. Their average lengths can exceed 16 meters, and weigh over 40 tons. The Humpback Whale characterizes themselves to have the a great repertoire of sounds. Some can last half an hour or more. The song is produced specially by the males and is part of the loving courtship.


The Humpback Whales are a species of marine mammals in extinction danger. Preys of fishing boats during the XIX and XX century, due to being of slow swimmers. These actions greatly reduced their population count between 10,000 and 20,000 units world-wide. Ecuador considers to be privileged to house their yearly visit


Humpback Whale watching tours are bundled with trips / excursions of "Isla de La Plata". Isla de La Plata is a GREAT alternative to a Galapagos Islands cruise". In Ecuador, Isla de La Plata is referred to as "Poor Mans Galapagos". It's very simple, you rather spend $3,000 USD in a Galapagos Islands Cruise or spend $50 USD. All in a one day trip. These one day excursions offer identical experiences to a what a full cruise of the Galapagos Islands offer. In 9 hours you get an "All in One" experience of  Whale watching while in season.

Isla de la Plata is situated only 17miles off the coast and is home to many similar species to those of its world famous cousin. Its name ‘Silver Island’ is derived from the legend that Sir Francis Drake buried treasure there. 

Isla de la Plata is part of the Ecuador's Machalilla National Park. Renowned for its abundant and exotic wildlife, exquisite unspoiled beaches and rich historical past, Isla de la Plata offers fantastic opportunities for curious travelers. Search for the island's great number of resident and migratory birds, including blue-footed and masked boobies, frigate birds, pelicans, and giant albatross. Swim and snorkel in crystal-clear waters, perhaps coming face-to-face with a friendly sea lion. Visit a local museum or archaeological site to observe artifacts from ancient indigenous peoples.
