Cruise past the Arch and the sea lion colony and then head away from shore to search for the migrating humpback whales, listening for whale song on an onboard hydrophone. Group size is limited to 10 for personal service from the marine biologist guides, who share fascinating whale facts and background throughout the tour.

  • Whale watching tour in Cabo San Lucas
  • Marine biologist guides talk about whale migration, courtship, and calving
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 people, with private tour options available

What to Expect
Make your way to the Cabo San Lucas marina and then meet the marine biologist guides aboard the whale watching vessel. Set out along the Cabo San Lucas coast, passing the Arch and the sea lion colony, before beginning the search for humpback whales. As you cruise, learn more about humpback whales, listening for whale song from below the waves. Keep your camera ready for the chance to capture images of humpback whales as they breach and blow, and watch for the dolphins and sea birds that can also be seen off the Baja coast. This Cabo San Lucas whale watching tour concludes at the original departure point.

We took the tour after doing some research and wanting one which felt more authentic. Our experience was good - the boat wasn’t too crowded and we saw whales. It was nice to see lands end, the beaches and we were lucky enough to see sea lions too. Thanks for an enjoyable

We throughly enjoyed our whale watching adventure. As we set out on our adventure we were taught what to watch for to help spot whales in the distance. We were all vigilant and spotted spout spray and headed in that direction. We watched a mother and a baby for sometime. They
