A Whale of a Time in Los Cabos

Updated: Jan 27, 2023

Are you ready for a whale of a time in Los Cabos? Every year, whales migrate to the waters off the coast of Los Cabos, making it one of the best spots for whale watching in the world. From November to April, these majestic creatures come to the warm, sheltered waters to mate, give birth, and raise their calves, providing an unforgettable experience for visitors. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast or just want to get up close and personal with whales, Los Cabos is one of the perfect places to do it!

Where to Go

There are plenty of great spots for visitors to get a glimpse of these majestic creatures; however, for the ultimate whale-watching experience, a trip out to Magdalena Bay is a must. This sheltered bay is a breeding ground for gray whales, and it's one of the only places on earth where you can get close to these gentle giants. At Magdalena Bay, you'll often see mothers and calves, and even males breaching or “spy-hopping” as they look around for the little babies. Other popular whale-watching spots in Los Cabos are off the pacific coast and the Sea of Cortez which include the bay of Medano, Land's End, Chileno Bay, and Santa Maria Bay.

What to Bring

If you are planning a whale watching trip to Los Cabos, there are several essential items you should bring. The first item is sunscreen; make sure to apply it liberally before you leave the house to ensure that you don't get burned during your whale watching experience. A jacket is also important, as the temperature on the water can be much cooler than on land. A camera is a must-have, too – you won’t want to miss out on capturing amazing shots of the whales breaching and their babies swimming in the sea.

What to Expect

When it comes to whale watching in Los Cabos, you can expect a spectacular experience. For the best viewing opportunities, make sure to take a tour with an experienced guide, who will help you spot the whales and explain their behavior. The sight of these beautiful creatures will leave you in awe and create memories that you'll cherish for a lifetime.
