Whale Species in Cabo San Lucas
Whale Watch Cabo has encountered 5 species of Baleen Whales and 2 Species of Toothed Whales on our Cabo San Lucas Whale watching tours, so far! Cabo San Lucas sits on the southern most point of the Baja Peninsula where the Sea of Cortez meets the tropical Pacific Ocean. This puts Cabo San Lucas in the middle of 3 oceanic currents that supports a wonderful diversity of Baleen and Toothed Whales throughout the year and of course the Humpback and Gray Whales during the Cabo San Lucas Whale migration season.
It is into this wonderful realm that Whale Watch Cabo ventures with our Guests for once in a lifetime encounters with these amazing animals. Throughout the Cabo San Lucas Whale watching season the Humpback Whales are the most commonly encountered species of Whale, followed by the Gray Whale. There are also other species of marine animals other than Whales and Dolphins that may be encountered including; Mobula Rays, Sea Lions, Seals, Manta Rays, Sea Turtles, Sharks, Frigates, Brown Footed Boobies, Blue Footed Boobies, Osprey, Cormorants and many, many more!
