Overview
Ready for the best "Whale Watching Tours" in Cabo San Lucas?

The guides are marine biologists who will be there to enhance the whale watching experience by adding an incredible amount of information and fun to the tour. The groups are small on purpose to insure the highest standard in service quality. Driven by research through photo identifying whales for data collection, you'll be sure to have an informative experience.
Highlights
  • 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
  • Departures throughout the day to accommodate your schedule
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.
