There are just a few truly amazing experiences a person gets to have in their life that will stay forever in their memories and dreams, and whale watching in Los
Cabos is definitely one of them. Every year, climate changes occur in the cold waters of the Bering Sea where the gray whales live, forcing them to migrate to
the warmer climes of Baja California, where they mate and later return home.
The following year, when they are almost 50 feet long and weighing a phenomenal 30 tons, the pregnant females come back to Los Cabos to nurse their newborn calves in
the lagoons of San Ignacio, Ojo de Liebre, and Magdalena. This incredible event happens between December and March, so plan your trip ahead of time!
How do I go whale watching in Los Cabos? Well, first you have to board a boat for a two hour trip to the breeding grounds. The traditional docks are in
Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, although there are marinas offering this tour throughout the whole Baja Peninsula.
As the boat leaves the coast emotions increase, for the whales may emerge at any given moment. It's just a matter of time until you can see the tail or the head of one
of them coming out of the deep blue ocean.
If the whale you get to see is happy enough, it may even jump out of the water exposing almost half of its body, before free falling into the ocean again, splashing
those on board the boat. If you want to experience the joy of interacting with these beautiful huge mammals, then during your next vacation you should definitely go
whale watching in Los Cabos!
