The park is formed by 110 hectares of coast and 5,400 hectares of protected ocean territory. It is packed with unique natural formations that make its beaches very unique. Its waters are overlooked by the lush green mountains of the Fila Costeña Range. The reserve has been named after the migration of whales that come to mate January through April and August through November, typically accompanied by their calves. It also has a sand bar in the shape of a whale’s tail. While paddling through the reserve, you will enjoy the scenery of the Three Sisters and Whale’s Islands. From there you will enjoy snorkeling around the corals that surround the Whale’s Tail.
