When Can You See Whales in Cabo? Whale watching season in Cabo San Lucas can vary from year to year, but the whales pass through Cabo from Mid-December to April annually. We recommend travelling to Cabo between January and March to have your best chance of seeing whales.
They can be active during the morning, midday or afternoon, be active all day long or have a quieter day. Our guides and captains always try to find the most active and receptive whales in the area with the least number of boats around to provide you with the best encounters.

How Close Do Whales Come To The Shore? Whales come as close to the shore as they feel they can whilst being safe. They want to swim in a place that they feel is secure and safe for their large, cold-blooded bodies, away from predators. In some areas, people have spotted humpback whales as close as 50 feet offshore.
Killer whales are widely distributed along the Pacific coast of Mexico, although they are only occasionally seen in some areas. They are most abundant within 800 Km off shore.

Eastern Tropical Pacific orcas, or killer whales, are spotted sporadically in the Sea of Cortez and have been known to surf behind vessels and express curiosity toward boaters.
While the Sea of Cortez commonly attracts whale sharks and humpback whales, orca encounters are considered rare. These cetaceans are most reliably found in cold waters near the coasts of Norway, Iceland, southern Argentina and Alaska. (Read more about diving with killer whales here.)
Blue Whales are infrequent visitors to the waters of Cabo San Lucas. … While we do not get to meet the Blue Whales very often, the experience of seeing a Blue Whale here in Cabo San Lucas is a memory of a lifetime.
February is always a very exciting month for whale watching here in Cabo San Lucas and all around the Baja. In February we typically see lots of adult Humpback and Gray Whales, as well as many baby Humpback Whales.
The short answer is, not exactly. While the water in Los Cabos is very pure, you still need to be careful. The water distribution pipes and other factors can become contaminated. Drinking water directly from the pipe is therefore not encouraged.
After the late summer/autumn rains, November sees the desert landscape transformed as flowers carpet the normally barren ground. This is also the best time to see blue whales and fin whales, plus elephant seals before they begin their migration northwards.
People always want to know if whale watching is better in the morning or the afternoon. To be completely honest there is really no ‘better time. ‘ As a general rule, the ocean is calmer in the mornings.
By June the Gray whales have gone however there are still some species which can be seen and you could well be lucky enough to see a superpod of dolphins shadowing the schools of Yellowfin tuna. … Take a look at our section on whale watching to find out what species you can see around Los Cabos.
Typically peak season in Los Cabos is from mid-December until the end of April, as hundreds of thousands of tourists pour into the resort town. As a result, restaurants, bars, airlines, and hotels typically increase their rates to accommodate the influx of foreigners ready for a Mexican adventure.
Absolutely no swimming is allowed because the strong currents and powerful shore break is very dangerous. Lover’s Beach (Playa de Amor) is located on the Sea of Cortez side near the famous stone arch (El Arco). The only access to this beach is by water taxi from the marina or Medano Beach.
Wild crocodiles are not found on the Baja California peninsula, where the desert climate is not suitable. … Wild Canyon Adventures, south of Cabo Pulmo in Los Cabos, states on its website that it exhibits crocodiles and other “rescue animals” in its animal sanctuary.
Without a doubt, Cabo is the best venue. Not even close. Whales can be seen from the beach without being on a tour. Cabo – hands down!
