Rules for Whale Watching:
There are some rules for Whale Watching that must be obeyed by each boat. Only 3 boats can be on a pod of whales at a time so we'll have to wait our turn upon arrival. Once you see whales you will have about 30-45 min before the law requires us to move along. Kim usually moves along to other whales and you end up possibly spending more than the normal time seeing whales within the time schedule for her later tours.
After the Whales:
You will return to Cayo Levantado Island for lunch and beach time.
Please print out the PDF when you purchase. Kim uses the Main Public Dock on Cayo Levantado Island.
