Salinas: Humpback Whales

Salinas

Watching the whales swim in pods and jump out of the water is truly a spectacular sight. After this excursion, you'll visit a small whale museum to learn more about these incredible mammals. Lunch is also included in this tour.

In the afternoon you'll return to Guayaquil.
