Whale Watch Cabo looks forward to responsibly introducing our Guests to the wonderful Whales of the Los Cabos. Based in Cabo San Lucas, our staff of Marine Biologists/Naturalists follow a respectful and non-invasive approach to encountering Whales in Los Cabos. Our respectful approach has met with great success allowing the Whales to chose encounters on their own terms, often resulting in longer, more natural encounters led by the Whales own curiosity, the best time for Whale watching.
Free Whale Watching Tour Photos - During each Cabo San Lucas Whale watching tour our guides take high quality photos of the Whales, Dolphins, other marine life, guests and landscape vistas. Whale Watch Cabo uses the photos to create the Los Cabos Humpback Whale ID catalog ~ with over 4000 individual whales identified to date! We offer your tour photos to you for free, via upload to Dropbox. A unique service to our guests from Whale Watch Cabo. Photos are not Included on the Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Flight Tour.
Whale watching in Los Cabos, with departures from the Cabo San Lucas Marina may be some of the best places in the world to encounter Whales. The Los Cabos whale watching season runs December 15 to April 15 during which time Humpback and Gray whales can be reliably encountered in the seas near Cabo San Lucas. Whales start arriving in Los Cabos waters mid November, so we do offer Pre-Season Marine Wildlife Tours from late November to December 14th. Our tours aim to be fun, informative, and respectful, while allowing our Biologist Guides opportunity to collect images for the Los Cabos Humpback ID photo catalog.
"See a Whale or Dolphin with a responsible operator and you will be inspired to care about the marine environment and support those working to protect it. The Responsible Whale Watch Partnership is a powerful coalition of individuals, businesses and organisations working towards best practice and sustainability in Whale and Dolphin watching tourism. We intend to have a positive influence on the way we view Whales and Dolphins. Together we are the global voice for Whales and Dolphins."–Dylan Walker, Co-founder, World Cetacean Alliance

Whale Watching Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Nursery Tours
Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Watching tours are not to be missed! Each year the only global population of Gray Whales returns to the lagoons and Bays of the Baja to mate and give birth. Amazingly, under protection from being hunted Gray Whales have been reported as recovering to their pre-whaling population!
But what is best known about the Gray Whales of Magdalena Bay is their inquisitive nature, especially Mother and Baby Gray Whale pairs. In these sheltered waters it is common to have baby Gray Whales approach the boat, escorted by mother, close enough to look into their peaceful eyes! A touching moment you can only have here in the Baja.
Whale Watch Cabo offers two options to visit the Magdalena Bay Gray Whale nursery. Every Wednesday and Friday during February and March Whale Watch Cabo offers its own Marine Biologist led van tour to Magdalena Bay. On demand from late January through March Whale Watch Cabo offers a flight tour which is run by a fellow local business that has been offering this tour for many years, Whale Watch Cabo is pleased to be their online booking agent.
