The fantastic Humpback Whale...

Humpback whales arrive every single year to the Ecuadorian Coast between June and October looking for tropical waters for breeding. They belong to the Southeastern Pacific stock which migrates along the west South America coast from Antarctic where feeding grounds are located and the tropical zone between Ecuador and Panama where reproduce. Humpback whales are huge animals reaching 16 m in length and up to 40 tons in weight. All the reproductive process occurs in tropical waters, and calves born after 12 months of gestation.

The humpback whale is a coastal species; so it is not necessary to go that far into the ocean to find them. In some strategic sites it is possible to watch the whales from the coast. The approach of tourist boats could be a potential threat for whales if this process is not made with responsibility. Specific regulations on the procedure to watch whales have been developed in order to keep a safe distance and to limit the time with them.
