Dolphin and Whale Watching Tour in Drake Bay as seen on National Geographic


The Divine Dolphin provides life changing encounters with wild Dolphins and Whales in their natural habitat of the waters off of Drake Bay, Costa Rica. We have been featured on countless websites, in magazines, feature films and TV shows, including the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and most recently National Geographic. The Divine Dolphin is Drake Bay’s original dolphin and whale watching tour and it is the only tour we do. Our world famous tour is a combination of natural beauty, education, research and lots of FUN! Our new custom built tour boat, Delfin Amor, makes your trip comfortable, safe and provides great viewing for all aboard. Costa Rica is one of the best places in the world to see dolphins and whales. Humpback Whales migrate from both North and South America and is the only place in the world this happens. Pods of hundreds and even thousands of several species of dolphins enjoy the warm, productive, tropical waters here. Because of the love for the marine life and the unfortunate threat of commercial fishing, we are dedicated to research, conservation and education through our MPA for OSA campaign and in partnership with other international organizations.
