Whale Watching tours in Cabo San Lucas with Whale Watch Cabo for the month of February were simply spectacular. Looking back in review at the month of February 2015 in the Cabo San Lucas whale watching season we reported 100% sightings on every single tour, all with multiple whales encountered on each whale watching tour from the Marina in Cabo San Lucas.
February reviews of the whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas usually revolve around the birth, growth and activity of baby Humpback Whales and this February’s tours were no different. Since the beginning of the season our Team of Marine Biologist and Naturalist Guides have been able to identify and catalog record numbers of baby Humpbacks born during the 2015 Cabo San Lucas whale watching season. Plus, the season of whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas runs until April so lots of time left to visit and encounter these incredible whales.
Whale Watch Cabo’s tours during the month of February were full of Mother and Baby Humpback pairs, many pairs accompanied by a male escort, our tours also encountered numerous Heat Runs (mating competitions) and several different species of Whales including; Blue Whales, Gray Whales, Bottlenose Dolphins, Common Dolphins and Spotted Dolphins. While the majority of whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas encounter the Humpback Whales, these other species are a delight to view and observe as well.
During the Cabo San Lucas whale watching season in the month of February we have to review our Magdalena Bay flight tours to visit the Gray Whale Nursery in Lopez Mateos/Magdalena Bay. The population density of Gray Whales in the bays and lagoons have been reported to be almost double of last season, and our whale watching flight tour guests have enjoyed the excessive numbers of whales – everyone sees so many Gray Whales, they lose track of how many they have seen on their whale watching tour!
This extremely high number of Gray Whales is almost certainly a result of the El Nino warm seas we have been enjoying in Cabo San Lucas. The warmer seas are enjoyed by the Humpback Whales (especially the baby Humpbacks who are born here with very little blubber/insulation) however the Gray Whales do not enjoy the warmer seas and thus are staying further north in the Baja – there have been very few Gray Whales encountered on our Whale Watching tours in Cabo San Lucas.
So that is the review of the month of February in the 2015 Whale Watching Tours Cabo San Lucas season. We expect more of the same in March, lots of Humpback whales encountered here in Cabo San Lucas and many, many Mother & Baby Gray Whales to encounter in Lopez Mateos.
Thanks to all of the wonderful people who joined our staff of Marine Biologists and Naturalists during the month of February to responsibly encounter the amazing Whales, Dolphins and other marine life on our Whale Watching Tours Cabo San Lucas!
