This is the Whale Watch Cabo sightings and activity report for December 2016. We enjoy posting these monthly trip reviews so guests can know what we are seeing and what whale watching in Cabo San Lucas is really like. As the only dedicated Whale Watching Company in Cabo San Lucas, Whale Watch Cabo offers the most complete and sustainable whale watching tours in Cabo.
December 2016 was an amazing month with sighting reports of 3 species of Baleen Whales; Blue Whale, Brydes Whale and Humpback Whales. Humpback Whales are the species around which the Cabo San Lucas whale watching season revolves, which is a wonderful situation as the Humpback Whales are often the most demonstrative of all the large whales.
In December 2016 we also had a great month of sighting reports of Dolphin Species observing; Rough-toothed Dolphins, Rissos Dolphins, Spotted Dolphins, Offshore Spinner Dolphins, Short Beaked Common Dolphins, Long Beaked Common Dolphins and our ever present Bottlenose Dolphins.
This brings the total number of cetacean species sighted by Whale Watch Cabo in December to 10! This is one of the things that makes whale watching so special in Cabo San Lucas, you just never know what you might see!
Additionally, during the month of December Whale Watch Cabo reported the sighting of three different baby Humpback Whales, starting on December 5, 2016! This is outstanding as typically we only start to see the baby Humpback Whales at the end of December or beginning of January. We hope this is a good indicator of a season full of Mother and Baby Humpback whale pairs here in Cabo.
To all of our guests who joined us this past December, a hearty Thank You! It is a wonderful privilege to share such amazing moments with you all.
To our staff of Marine Biologists, Oceanographers, Whale Naturalists and Captains – thank you too! It is your hard work and dedication that made Whale Watch Cabo tours in the month of December 2016 very special! We look forward to January and encountering more amazing whale and dolphin species here in Cabo San Lucas – we expect to start seeing Gray Whales any day now!
