One of the ocean's most majestic and intelligent creatures, the humpback whale is instantly recognizable, with its sturdy body, elongated pectoral fins, conspicuous hump, and copious round nodules adorning its head and jaw like knots on a tree. During the warm summer months, humpbacks spend their days in arctic waters feasting on krill and tiny fish. Starting in November, however, the Northeast Atlantic humpbacks leave their homes off the coast of Alaska to travel thousands of miles to the warm waters of Cabo San Lucas, where they will reside for months to come. And what brings them to our sunny Sea of Cortes paradise? Why, romance, of course, like so many others who join us year-round at Pueblo Bonito. Throughout the whale season (which peaks in January and continues into April), you can catch a glimpse of these massive animals on one of many whale watching tours. The males of the species perform a spectacular mating dance that includes breaching, tail-slapping, fin-slapping, lob-tailing, and other impressive acrobatics intended to capture the affections of the female humpbacks, who demand a truly impressive performance in exchange for their affections. If you'll be staying with us soon, let your concierge know you'd like to witness this sublime humpback ritual. We'll find the perfect tour company to suit your holiday schedule.
