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.
Highlights
  • Whale watching tour in Cabo San Lucas
  • Marine biologist guides talk about whale migration, courtship, and calving

What to Expect
Make your way to the Cabo San Lucas marina and then meet the marine biologist guides aboard the whale watching vessel.

As you cruise, learn more about humpback whales, listening for whale song from below the waves.

We reached out last minute via WhatsApp, and although the whale watching season had officially come to an end, the team was willing to take us out but set the expectation that we may not see much. Boy, were we surprised. We saw so many amazing marine giants! The whales were

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Although this was the end of the whale season, we were fortunate enough to see a mother and juvenile whale. The juvenile humpback whale breached three times and was showing off for the boat. We were right in the

My wife and I had a very enjoyable time. While Silvia, the marine biologist, spoke to us about the nature of the whales and their habitat, Captain Freddy worked to keep the boat in a position that provided for the best possible cameral angles for those on board. The whales

Our experience was absolutely amazing! We saw so many whales it was hard really to count them. Our captain and guide got us near one particular mother and calf that turned out to be an experience of a lifetime. The calf kept jumping out of the water and must’ve done it 20 times.

This was an amazing experience! Even though it's near the end of the season, we saw quite a few whales, both adults & babies, and even got to hear two males singing. Our guide, Cecilia, was very knowledgeable about both the whales & the area in general, so we learned a lot.
