In Search of the Humpback Whale, 4 Days

Admiring the humpback whale from the humbling perspective of a sea kayak is the highlight of this trip. However, the search for the humpback whale will take us to many other incredible places. Most of our adventure is spent in Machalilla National Park, which is the absolute best coastal reserve in continental Ecuador. It boasts magnificent beaches, tropical dry forests, pre-Inca ruins from three cultures, and an island famous for wildlife similar to the Galapagos Islands.
