Whale Watching Packages at the Whale Resort
The Whale Resort offers customized vacation packages to groups of whale watching enthusiasts. We always thrive to insure that you’ll have the most incredible experience the Osa Peninsula and the Whale Resort have to offer! The sweet waters of the Golfo Dulce is one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica for whale watching. In fact, the Osa Peninsula is home to the longest humpback whale-watching season in the world!
Location & Whales
The Whale Resort is located in the Osa Peninsula and sits on the shores of the Golfo Dulce Bay. It is here where one of the mother nature’s most interesting phenomena occur. The Humpback Whales take their three month journey from the northern and southern hemispheres heading to the Golfo Dulce to escape the only natural predator to the baby Humpback, the Orca Whale. The Golfo Dulce which means “sweet water” has an unusually large amount of fresh water flowing into it making the water conditions too toxic for the Orca to enter in to. Amazingly these same water conditions are perfect for the Humpbacks so it is here where they seek refuge from the Orca to bear their young.
The Osa offers many species of whales year round. The two migration seasons of the Humpbacks are from July through October and again from December through March. Hundreds of them instinctively travel to the Golfo Dulce baring their young, making this an incredible experience for whale watching enthusiasts from all over the world to come and witness this.
