The Vallarta Whale

This Whale has become part of Puerto Vallarta’s lands cape and it’s admired daily by thousands of people who drive along the main street in Puerto Vallarta.  It became the new symbol of Puerto Vallarta and Bahia de Banderas, together with the traditional seahorse that can be found at the “Malecon”.

Also known as the “Dancing Whale”, this is a monumental bronze sculpture that represents a humpback whale and her baby calf, it can be seen at the entrance of the Vallarta Marina.  Bahia de Banderas is visited year after year by Humpback whales that arrive from the north to give birth to their babies on warmer waters so it is no surprise that this phenomenon also gave birth to this amazing piece of art and now symbol of the area.

It was inaugurated on March of 2001  and weights 12 tons, measuring: 8.9 meter high and 13 meters long.

This original artwork from the sculptor Octavio Gonzales was the result of many efforts that involved citizens, hotels, restaurants, public administration and others. As result of this hard work we can admire this beautiful piece of work that helps spread the word about Puerto Vallarta around the world.
