Whale Watch Cabo | Whale Watching | Cabo San Lucas | Magdalena Bay
Whale watching in Cabo San Lucas with Whale Watch Cabo means joining our staff of Biologists, Naturalists and Photographers in small groups for fun, respectful whale watching tours. Whale Watch Cabo’s guides are english speaking biologists actively studying the whales of the Sea of Cortez.
Our goal is to make your Cabo San Lucas whale watching tours more than just a chance to observe whales, but an opportunity for a greater understanding and appreciation of the wonderful whales. Our knowledge about Cabo’s whales is unmatched in the local industry and our passion for sharing the magical experience of encountering Cabo whales is sure to make you smile.
Whale Watch Cabo is looking forward to 2014, our third season responsibly introducing whale watching enthusiasts to the wonderful whales of the Baja. Based in Cabo San Lucas, our staff of Biologists & Naturalists pioneered the non-invasive approach to encountering whales in the Cabo region. 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 whale watching experiences.
Whale watching in Cabo San Lucas may be one of the best places in the world to encounter whales. Our small group tours are typified with sunshine, calm seas, and multiple species of whales very often close to shore, creating a whale watchers paradise. Mix in the acrobatics of mating displays, peaceful encounters with mother and baby pairs and the occasional surprise (Sea of Cortez hosts 75% of the known cetacean species) are you get the idea of what our Cabo San Lucas whale watching tours are all about.
Whale Watch Cabo also offers two options for a day tour from Cabo San Lucas for Magdalena Bay Gray Whale watching. These bays and lagoons located on the Pacific coast of the Baja to the north of Los Cabos and are the only place in the world where Gray Whales spend their winters to give birth. So Magdalena Bay is the only place in the world you can encounter; multiple pairs of mother and baby Gray whales as they cavort in their nursery waters, playful juvenile Gray whales and displaying adults. This is a beautiful encounter with the last remaining Gray Whale population and an experience sure to warm your heart.
"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, Planet Whale
