DAY 4

Bahía Solano - Whale watching

Every year whales living in the waters in the Antarctic of the southern coast of Chile begin their 8000km migration up to the Colombian Pacific coast to give birth and raise their young. The whales are humpbacks often considered the most emblematic of the whale family, growing up to 18m and weighing over 25 tons. The season in Colombia runs from July through to November and this section of Colombian coast is some of the best in the world for spotting these amazing creatures. You will take a trip out in to the water of the Pacific looking for the whales, often, due to the density of population they are encountered with considerable ease. You will have time to watch, observe and photograph these mammals. Of all the animal encounters the world has to offer few come close to the sight of a giant humpback breaching in the open water.
