Every winter, the azure waters surrounding Mexico’s Baja Peninsula serve as a temperate habitat for hundreds of whales who have migrated south from their winter feeding grounds near Alaska. Their majestic voyage of over 5,000 miles affords beachgoers of Los Cabos a remarkable opportunity to observe humpback whales from shore, or even an exceptionally closer range: these impressive creatures are often observed coming up for air just several feet from the whale watching boats!
The Baja Peninsula attracts thousands of whale enthusiasts every year, in hopes of spotting newly-arrived humpback, blue and gray whales displaying playful behavior, nursing their young, and mating. From December through mid-April, various tour operators offer highly entertaining and educational whale watching excursions in this region—we recommend booking your adventure with Cabo Adventures for an unforgettable experience! Book your stay with one of Pueblo Bonito’s five resorts based in Los Cabos to catch sight of these magnificent underwater giants.
