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. We offer 3 different types of tours:

Our tours in Cabo San Lucas are 2,5 hours long. After leaving the dock our first stop will be at the famous arch of Cabo San Lucas where we can also have a look at the local sea lion colony. Once everybody is ready, we take off in search of Humpback and Gray Whales, usually not too far away we will start experiencing their behavior: breaching, tail slapping, spy hops, pectoral fin slapping, fluke down and many more! The marine biologist on board will be very happy to explain each of these behaviors.

The Whale Watching Tours out of San Josè del Cabo are a great occasion to explore new whale watching sites with fewer people and boats around. Another advantage is that this trip is longer: 3 hours! Initially this trip is going out only on Thursdays or upon request.  This tour will run from the upcoming season 2019/20 and is the NEW ENTRY of the season!

The Sunset Whale Cruise is a romantic 2 hours spent between breathtaking landscapes and whale tales while enjoying some wine and appetizers on board.
