Hello to everyone; guests making their plans to visit Cabo San Lucas again this whale watching season and new friends we have not yet met! Everyone at Whale Watch Cabo is excited to extend a warm welcome to our guests for the coming season – we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Whales and you!
We are grateful to be welcoming back our staff of Captains and Guides; Miguel (also our Partner!), Lisa, Santos, Paola, Alonso, Hector, Victor and Hugo. This year we have some new Marine Biologist Guides joining the Whale Watch Cabo team as well; Ricardo (Mexico), Paulette (Mexico) and Nacho (Spain). We are very excited to share an amazing season with all of the wonderful personalities that make Whale Watch Cabo something special.
So what’s new with Whale Watch Cabo for the 2017 season? The biggest change is we have a new custom built zodiac style boat called “Ballena Azul” or Blue Whale. While our fleet of Super Panga boats is still the envy of Cabo San Lucas we felt it was time to offer our guests another option in a more adventurous zodiac whale watching tour.
The Ballena Azul is a custom built 24 foot Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat RHIB – the sort of zodiac used by military forces around the world, renowned for their stability and seaworthiness when the conditions get rougher. The Ballena Azul is also very fast with twin 140hp engines. Unique to the Ballena Azul she also has a canvas roof covering the seats at the rear of the boat.
Our plans for the Ballena Azul are to use her speed to extend the range of our tours. She departs 30 minutes prior to the rest of our whale watching boats, giving her the opportunity to be the first to find and report Whale and Dolphin sightings. For our whale watching enthusiasts we think the Ballena Azul will offer more species to encounter and a greater range to increase likelihood of amazing encounters.
So what are your plans for the coming 2017 Cabo San Lucas whale watching season? We hope you will choose to join Whale Watch Cabo for some wonderful encounters with the amazing Whales and Dolphins of Los Cabos, Mexico.
