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.

Wow! Such a fun day!
Tour/Activity: Zodiac Whale Watching Tour

What a great morning out on the water with these amazing creatures! The Company that provided us our Tour was Cabo Expeditions who did an awesome job.
So many whales, although we did have to go fairly far to find them, so we were happy to be in a high speed Boat. We got to spend plenty of time with a mother and fairly new baby, which was amazing to see. We were luck enough to have a grey what come right up to the boat so we could pet it, which was the highlight! I thought that was only in Magdalena Bay, and it was very rare, but it happened to us!
Ash made sure the booking process was super simple and we were picked up as promised on time!
