Humpback Whales are Already Arriving

On yesterday´s dive trip we encountered the first humpback whales that arrive every year around June to give birth and teach their babies how to swim and dive. The mothers will stay with their calves until October or November before they leave for their icy feeding grounds.

The shallow waters of the Gulf of Chiriqui and Coiba National Park are an important summer breeding ground for the migrating animals, which can be spotted here in big numbers this time of year.

Now until early July it is also possible to encounter the migrating Orca around Coiba.
