Cabo San Lucas is a beautiful vacation spot located on Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. There are so many different things to do in Cabo. One amazing part of visiting Cabo is getting to observe the wildlife. During your stay, be sure to book tours where you get to see whales, dolphins, and whale sharks up close. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to see and interact with these animals. Here are some of the wildlife tours to consider when vacationing in Cabo.

Whale Watching

Did you know that each year, 9 different types of whales visit the Baja Peninsula? They come every year looking for a place to give birth to their babies.  Between December and May, take a whale-watching tour and observe how many whales you can see. These whales can be spotted from the beach, but taking a boat tour is the best way to get an up-close view of these beautiful creatures. The Fast Zodiac gets you to the whales quickly, leaving you with ample time to observe. The whales can often also be spotted from the booze cruises or while sport-fishing.    

Swimming with Dolphins

There are three different package options available that involve swimming with dolphins.  The first package is good for any type of group, whether you are traveling with your partner or with the whole family. The tour begins with a 10-minute information session where you will learn how to interact with the dolphins. After that, 40 minutes are devoted to swimming with the dolphins. A photographer will even be there to capture your interactions. The second program is the Dolphin Kids Program. This program is for children ages 4-9. This program takes kids to an area with shallow water where they can meet the dolphins. The children will be closely supervised and have the chance to interact with the dolphins for 20 minutes. The third program is called Dolphin Trainer for a Day. This program is 4 ½ hours long. Families are welcome as long as the children are 12 years and older. During this program, get a sneak peek at a day in the life of a dolphin trainer. Learn about how the dolphins are trained and taken care of. At the end of the program, you will receive a diploma!

Swimming with Whale Sharks

During your time in Cabo, take a journey to La Paz. This is the capital of Baja California Sur and is about a 2-hour drive from Cabo San Lucas.  Once in La Paz, you will have the unique opportunity to swim with whale sharks. These sharks are rare and there are only a few places in the entire world you can see them. Whale sharks are very gentle creatures that can grow up to 50 feet long! The tour at La Paz includes a bus from Cabo, and then a boat ride and snorkeling session with the whale sharks. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see these magnificent animals.

It’s not every day that you can see a whale, dolphin, or whale shark. Take advantage of the wonderful wildlife in Cabo San Lucas during your vacation. There are so many things to do in Cabo but it is important to make time to join a tour to see all these majestic creatures.
