Whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas for the month of April 2015 were a wonderful ending to a season of incredible and amazing encounters with the Whales of Los Cabos. The Whale watching tours for the final two weeks of the 2015 Cabo San Lucas Whale watching season were dominated by encounters with pairs of Mother and Baby Humpback Whales and lots of Dolphins in the Los Cabos area. This is common for the final two weeks of Whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas as the migration of Whales is now coming to its end. While not the height of the season, Cabo San Lucas Whale watching tours in the first two weeks of April are still wonderful opportunities to experience some awe inspiring Whale encounters.
This April 2015 Whale Watch Cabo was pleased to encounter Humpback Whales on every single one of our Whale watching tours. Cabo San Lucas is the congregation point for Humpbacks traveling northwards towards their summer feeding grounds which range from California to Alaska. So while the Whale watching season is winding down here in Los Cabos we are blessed with the opportunity to view both small groups of migrating adult Humpbacks and the late season birthed Humpback Whales, the Mother Humpback feeding her baby and waiting for its strength to reach the point where the baby is ready for the migration north.
During our Cabo San Lucas Whale watching tours during April 2015 we were also very pleased to also encounter Bottlenose and Common Dolphins on over 65% of our tours! While the Humpbacks are the headlining stars of the Whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas it is always wonderful to encounter pods of Dolphins, sometimes in the hundreds as they hunt fish just off the Los Cabos coast.
So while we are always sad to see the end of the Whale migration as the middle of April arrives, we also feel blessed for the many amazing encounters on our Whale watching tours. In retrospect 2015 was a wonderful year with Humpbacks encountered on over 99% of our Whale watching tours. Gray Whales were scarce in Los Cabos (it being an El Nino year) but the Gray Whales were abundant and exuberant on our Magdalena Bay Gray Whale Nursery Flight Tours. Bottlenose, Spotted and Common Dolphins were also regularly encountered during the season. A few special tours even got to observe the Blue Whales, Bryde’s Whales and Orcas.
As the 2015 Cabo San Lucas Whale watching season comes to an end all of us here at Whale Watch Cabo would like to extend our gratitude and appreciation for all of our wonderful Guests who joined our Whale watching tours in Cabo San Lucas. We would also like to express our deep thanks to our amazing team of Biologist Guides and Captains who worked so hard to ensure our Guests a fun, educational and respectful experience. While this Whale watching tours season comes to an end in Cabo San Lucas we are already looking forward to the return of the Whales to Los Cabos next season…
