Terrible experience!! Described as a 2 day whale watching trip. It is only 1 hr. A boat ride to juanchaco followed by another 1hr whale watching. From 11am to 4pm we were left stranded on the dirty beach of Juanchaco. Definitely not recommended. We do however recommend going to Bueneventura on your own, get the boat from there to Juanchaco for only $Col70,000 and do the 1hr whale watching in Juanchaco. The 1 hr we had with the whales was an extraordinary experience.
