Where and when to spot humpback whales in Ecuador

Every year, during the months of June and September, humpback whales migrate from Antarctica to the waters of Ecuador to mate, give birth, and thrill tourists of all ages eager to see these amazing creatures. With their gigantic size that may reach up to 50 feet in length, no other experience compares to watching a humpback whale up close. You can see many of them breaking the ocean’s surface to take a deep breath, and if you’re lucky, you might see one of them leap out of the water and make a large splash.

Puerto Lopez, a little fishing community in the province of Manabi, is one of the greatest sites in Ecuador for whale watching. Going on a boat trip is the best way to watch the whales because local captains and tour operators know where to go so that their passengers can get the most exciting views.

What to know

  •  If you want to take photos of the whales, bring a waterproof cover or bag for your camera.
  •  Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, as the shore of Puerto Lopez may get quite hot.
  • While many tour operators supply drinks and snacks for travelers, you may wish to bring your own water bottle in case you get dehydrated.
  • The cost of the tour varies from $15 to $20. A perfect deal, right?
