Whales Watching

When it comes to spotting whales, Cabo San Lucas is a worldwide hotspot. That’s because the waters surrounding Cabo are breeding areas and migratory stops for whales in the Pacific Ocean. To help you get as close to these magnificent creatures as possible and take pictures to memorialize the moment, our experts here at Cabo Adventures proudly offer this one-of-a-kind whale watching tour. Witness the awe-inspiring enormity and grace of humpbacks 40–50 feet long (12–16 meters) up-close in their natural environment from our specialized, inflatable boats. In our Cabo expeditions, feel the rush of seeing them shoot out of the ocean depths, launching high into the air and returning to the sea amidst a colossal splash!

About this activity

Whales travel about 3,000 miles during a 10- to 12-month gestation period. Above the ocean, their breathtaking performance is a way of communicating with other whales, and below the surface, they produce a wide range of fascinating singing sounds. Humpback whales can reach sizes of over 50 feet in length and weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. They are perhaps the most famous whale species for breaching, which is on full display near Cabo.

Whale watching season in Cabo ranges from early December to mid-April, with the season peaking from late December to late January. Along with the humpback, you can spot a variety of whales in the Sea of Cortez, including blue whales, gray whales, and Orca whales.

**TOUR AVAILABLE FROM DECEMBER 2020.
