Whale watching in Los Cabos is a unique experience! Each and every year thousands of Humpback Whales migrate all the way from Alaska to give birth to their calves and reproduce in the warm waters of Mexico and Central America.
Every trip to Cabo San Lucas is not complete without enjoying a day on the ocean with the migrating whales. Customers see a variety of whales on a daily basis during season, with the main attraction being the massive Humpback Whales and the California Gray Whales. If you want to know what it feels like when you see a 20 tons massive whale breaching out of the water, you join one of out tours starting from the 15th of December!

Nevertheless if you are booking an early morning tour, 09:00am, you may consider taking with you a sweater and eventually long pants.
