Why Cabo San Lucas Mexico is one of the best whale watching destinations in the world

Cabo whale watching tours are certainly one of the most popular activities offered in beautiful Los Cabos Mexico. Because of such an abundance of whales, Cabo is one of the most spectacular whale watching destinations in the world. For instance, each year more than 10,000 whales visit the pristine waters of Los Cabos. The best time to see the whales is mid-December through the end of March with January and February being the peak months.

Types of whales you will enjoy viewing in Cabo San Lucas

The two primary types of whales you will see in Los Cabos include the Humpback whales (famous for their singing and acrobatics) and Gray whales.  In addition, other whales you may see during your Cabo whale watching tour include Blue, Fin and Pilot whales. An extra special experience is to witness the Humpback whales breaching. However, an even more thrilling experience is to observe a mother Humpback and her calf breaching together.  Observing these gentle giants is truly an experience of a lifetime.

Why do whales visit Los Cabos

The whales migrate south from their arctic feeding grounds to breed, give birth and nurture their calves. After their long 6,000 mile journey from Alaska, the whales arrive in the warm waters of the Baja California Peninsula which they find a natural refuge. Visitors come from all around the world to see the whales in beautiful Los Cabos Mexico.

Cool things you will see during your Cabo whale watching tour

Once you begin your Cabo whale watching tour, you will depart out of the Cabo San Lucas marina into the Cabo San Lucas Bay. Here you will enjoy sightseeing along the magnificent Finisterra Rocky Point of Land’s End. In particular, you will enjoy seeing Medano Beach, Lover’s Beach, the sea lion colony and Los Cabo’s most famous landmark, El Arco (Land’s End Arch). Sightings of dolphins, manta rays and turtles are also special observations. Depending on the day, the whales may be located in the Sea of Cortes or Pacific Ocean or a combination of both. Any time is a good time to see the whales however typically the water is the most calm for the morning departure and there is less traffic on the water. This can make for a more pleasant whale watching experience.
