Huatulco Bay Tours with Whale Watching
The Huatulco bay tours will leave you amazed with the beauty of the Huatulco ocean. With countless miles of coastline, you will see everything from beautiful sandy beach bays, to a mountain range. If you come at the right time of the year and season, you can even take part in some Huatulco whale watching.
Beginning your Excursion
After being picked up at your hotel, you will be driven to Santa Cruz Bay, where your journey will begin. You will experience the beauty of bays such as Chahue Bay, Organo Bay, Chachacual Bay, San Agustin Bay. San Agustin has the largest coral reef in the area, and is perfect for snorkeling. It is one of the best Huatulco tours available on the water.
Snorkeling in the Bays
Have you ever been snorkeling in the ocean? If not, you are in for a treat. With fish that come so close you can almost touch them, along with the sheer beauty of the coral, you will be amazed at this breathtaking experience. If you enjoy the experience so much you want to repeat it, you will have an optional opportunity to snorkel in another bay near the end of the trip. If you want to change the details of this, make sure to request a custom Huatulco tour to get everything you are looking for. While snorkeling, you will see thousands of fish, including some varieties of pufferfish, or blowfish.
This video hardly does it justice. Seeing the whales come out of the water right next to the boat is something that has to be experienced in order to understand the full beauty of it. This portion of the Huatulco bay tours is seasonal, so make sure you ask if it is available during your stay. The Huatulco whale watching season runs roughly from December until March, but this can vary, so make sure that you ask your tour guide about the particulars.
Other Highlights of the Tour
You will have the opportunity to swim on beautiful white sandy beaches. At Organo Bay, partially underwater caves in the rocks, cause waves to push the water up to 32 feet in the air.
One of the most interesting bays is Cacaluta. What makes it so intriguing is how the natural land formations have caused it to be formed in a heart-shape.
The stone face ins another must-see. Here, the natural rock formations have developed in a shape that greatly resembles a man’s face.
Plenty of Dolphins
One thing is for sure: If you care to, you will see plenty of dolphins on your bays tour. When we say plenty, we mean plenty. On your excursion, you will see hundreds, if not thousands of dolphins. There will be no shortage of photo opportunities on this Mexico trip.
