Cabo Whale Watching Tours
Whale Watching in Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas is well known for its magnificent whale watching opportunity. From late December to late March, visitors to Cabo have the privilege of observing in-close the migration of the Pacific Gray and Humpback whales.
Cabo San Lucas Whale Watching Season
After spending summer feeding in the cold rich arctic water, the whales migrate south to Baja California bays to mate and nurse their young. During spring the whales start migrating back, this time we observe them with their calves.
An amazingly close encounter with these giant mammals will change your perspective about nature and the ocean.
