Our guides knowledge of the whales of Los Cabos 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 December 2014, our next season of responsibly introducing whale watching enthusiasts to the wonderful whales of the Los Cabos. Based in Cabo San Lucas, our staff of Marine Biologists 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 whale watching tour in Cabo San lucas our guides take high quality photos of the whales, dolphins, other marine life, guests and landscape vistas during each tour. Whale Watch Cabo uses the photos to assist in the Los Cabos Humpback Whale ID catalog ~ over 4000 individual whales identified to date! We offer these photos for free to our guests, via upload and drop box. A unique service to our guests that Whale Watch Cabo is pleased to offer.
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. Our small group tours are typified with sunshine, and multiple species of whales often very 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 whale and dolphin species) and you get the idea of what our Cabo San Lucas whale watching tours are all about.
Whale Watch Cabo also offers a full day flight tour from Cabo San Lucas to the Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Nursery. Magdalena Bay is located on the Pacific coast of the Baja to the north of Los Cabos. These lagoons are the only bodies of water in the world where Gray Whales give birth. Magdalena Bay allows a once in lifetime opportunity to encounter pairs of mother and baby Gray whales as they cavort in their nursery waters, playful juvenile Gray whales and displaying adult Gray Whales. This is a beautiful encounter with the only 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
