|Tags:||Ballenas, Delfines, Marino Ballena|
The tour starts in our official facilities of Ballena Aventura, where we offer a refreshing juice of seasonal fruit along with a snack to taste while we make the registration of each one of our companions, once registered we will move in a small walk of Ballena Bay history to the entrance of the Ballena National Marine Park (Uvita Beach sector), where we will take the boat that will be waiting for us.
We will have the wonderful experience of visiting points such as the Whale Tail or Tombolo of Punta Uvita, and if the conditions of the sea allows, we will do some snorkeling in this area for about thirty minutes and/or we will move to a second point of snorkeling inside the park to Ballena Island, where you will be able to see some migratory birds as well as resident birds of the place.
During the navigation, the five beaches that make up the national park area: Uvita Beach, Colonia Beach, Arco Beach, Ballena Beach and Pinuela Beach will be appreciated.
And leaving a little away of the protected area of the park we will pass by the famous and spectacular complex of Ventanas Caverns, place that if the tide allows, the boat will pass through one of the main caverns.
Another point that shines in the place is to be able to observe part of the Terraba-Sierpe National Wetland, a World-wide site, since it was declared a Ramsar Site, which has a great biological diversity, where it will take us through the mouth of the Terraba Great River in the sector of Boca Coronado.
Also, one of the main reasons why tourists visit the Ballena Bay area is when we are blessed by the arrival seasons of the HUMPBACK WHALES, a first season goes from December to April, where these majestic mammals come from the North and a second season from July to November coming from the South, the latter being the best time to see them, since they come in major quantity and there are none or not so many bays in which they can stay, this tour will include the search of such impressive mammals, and without being left unnoticed occasionally pilot whales and bryde whales could be observed. In addition it includes the search of dolphins throughout the year, the most common types are: bottlenose dolphin, Pantropical spotted dolphin and occasionally the roughtoothed dolphin and with much luck to the so-called false orcas and once finished this extraordinary journey we will return to our point of departure, to Uvita Beach.
