Check out the Whales in Los Cabos!!
Every year, up to 9 species of whale visit the Baja Peninsula in search of the perfect location to give birth. The waters off the southern Baja have been used for centuries as the place to give birth for a variety of Whale species. The most well known of all the species are the California Gray Whale (which is known to give birth in Bahia Magdalena) and the Humpback Whales. Visitors to Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo have been enjoying these creatures for many years on our whale watching tours.
The Humpback whales are traditionally the whales more frequently spotted on our Cabo Whale Watching Tours. They are the ones putting on the spectacle of Breaching, Tail Slapping, Fin Slapping, etc. Although the Humpback does attract the most attention, the Gray whale also does something very special in this area. A more curious species, the Gray Whales have been known to come up to the Whale Watching tours in Cabo, allowing themselves to be patted (Like a dog). This behavior is more typical in Bahia Magdalena however occurs off the waters of Cabo San Lucas also.
Whale Watching Tours
Whale Watching Tours in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are offered seasonally, between Dec and May. The best way to get up close to the whales is heading out on a boat for one of our whale watching safaris, however if boats are not for you, you can often see the whales putting on a performance right from the beach.
Typically the best option for whale watching tours is the Fast Zodiac style boat that can get you close to the whales quickly, giving you the most time with them. There are also several whale watching tours for the more budget conscious, such as a small sail boat, or a variety of larger boats.
If you happen to be on the water for any reason (Sport Fishing, Sunset Cruises, etc.) during Cabo Whale Watching Season, you are highly likely to find yourself up close to these Majestic Animals. to take any water tour during these months, you will likely have the chance to spend some time watching these amazing creatures from right up close.

We were taken on an amazing on an amazing whale watching tour where we were lucky enough to see whales, dolphin and sea lions. We saw whales that were fully breaching, plus slapping their fins and putting on quite a show. An AMAZING day out
This is a five star company, who showed us a great time! They went out of their way to make sure we saw whales and taught us a few things along the way. They gave us information about whales and conservation efforts. Our entire crew was outstanding!
Great to hear you guys had fun out there and saw plenty of whales.
Ash organized all our Tours during our recent trip to Los Cabos. He offered us some excellent rates and fantastic advice on the best tours and activities. Cabo Expeditions was the service provider for our Whale Watching tour, and they did an excellent job. We saw plenty of whales, and the kids had a great time. The guide was very informative and was a Marine Biologist who obviously had a love of these animals.
