Humpback Whale Watching and Restaurants in Ricon de Guayabitos
I have been vacationing in Nayarit, Mexico for the last seven years, mainly for the incredible surfing. I am no great surfer but I love to ride the waves and the coastline along Banderas Bay is phenomenal. Several friends go to Mexico a couple times a year for the great waves and beaches and, well, just because it is so laid back. During several trips, I noticed people doing some humpback whale watching in Sayulita, and while the people on the tours always looked elated on the trip back, I have never been a touristy person, and my friends sure were not either. We always liked to surf, have a couple empanadas at some beachside taco stand, take a nap, surf again, and then have a couple margaritas to close down the evening.
On one trip to Sayulita I went alone. My usual companions could not make the trip and it was kind of an impulsive trip for me anyway. It was just one of those gotta-get-away times and I generally answer those with a cheap trip to Mexico. I had performed my customary ritual of surfing, eating and drinking for a few and frankly, I was becoming a little lonely at night without my friends. On the last night I was there, I got myself mildly intoxicated and struck up a conversation with a group of people who were planning to head into Sayulita for a humpback whale watching trip. It could have been the margaritas, but I was somewhat shockingly interested in seeing these big things up close. My new friends made it sound like wonderful experience, and I was becoming aware that through my love of surfing and the water, I had developed an empathy for the creatures in it.
Well, the next morning my head was pounding and I felt terrible but my new buddies insisted on lugging me off to Sayulita for the humpback whale watching trip. I am not one for crowds – one of the reasons I had stayed off the tours is that usually there are loads of tourists. Thankfully, this was a private cruise and there were only a dozen of us. Nothing happened for like an hour and then just like fifty yards away an enormous humpback whale blasted out of the ocean, loomed shiny and wet above the surface, unleashed a shot of water to exhale and crashed back into the water. I saw jumping dolphins and even a group of sperm whales. It was probably the most surreal experience of my life and now every trip I make to Mexico always includes a whale watching tour.
