Best Whale Watching in Panama

Isla Palenque floats in an oceanic wilderness, the Gulf of Chiriqui, where humpback whales migrate from August to October to calve in Panama’s warm, Pacific waters.

This is truly some of the best whale watching in Panama.

Once they’ve been spotted for the first time (usually in August), you’ll likely spot them in the Gulf of Chiriqui until the babies are strong enough to travel North again for the winter (usually in October).

Catch a glimpse of a colossal, rising momma humpback and her little one while she blows out a 3ft cloud of ocean spray.

You can even spot whales frolicking just offshore from the island’s beautiful beaches, and dolphins often tag along to watch the show.
