We offers you the opportunity to visit these fabulous animals in their natural environment and to participate in a research project that helps us understand and protect our dolphins here in Puerto Vallarta. Come with us and interact with a Bottlenose pod. Our guides are professional biologists who will share with you their knowledge, making this excursion a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Remember that these dolphins are not confined and this is the NATURAL way to observe and enjoy them. Do not contribute to capturing more dolphins! Visit them in their own environment because FREE DOLPHINS ARE HAPPY DOLPHINS. This tour runs as only dolphins from April to November, from December to March we combine the whale watching with the dolphins in the wild tour so you
will have both in the same tour for the price of one.
Capturing of dolphins began in the 1940's with the purpose of using them as attractions in aquariums. The most common species being captured is the Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). Much research has been done with the animals in captivity including behavior, medicine, communication, physiology, anatomy, reproduction and intelligence. Despite the fact that this information is truly invaluable, there are many aspects of dolphin life that can be studied only on animals in their natural habitat. Part of the project focuses on the indispensable individual identification of the dolphins by taking photos of dorsal fins, which due to their shape and unique marks can be used as an individual?s fingerprint. One of our first achievements was a finding that our study group is a resident group that lives exclusively inside Banderas Bay. More detailed study is being carried out now to determine which areas are important for this group in particular. With all this information, we hope to promote the species?
