Every winter, like the North America tourists who flock to Cabo San Lucas to escape the cold, the Gray Whales also migrate to the region off the coast of the southern Baja Peninsula to court, breed, spawn and nurse in warm waters. Travelling thousands of miles from the Arctic, these massive cetaceans arrive off the coast of Los Cabos every January and stay through March.
You will be astounded by the majesty of these enormous marine mammals as they emerge from the surface of the Sea of Cortez or the Pacific Ocean. The sheer size of these animals is enough to take your breath away. You may witness a tail slap, a breach, or a blowhole spray. Look closely and you may even see a newborn calf travelling under the protection of its mother. Mother Gray Whales tend to stick closer to shore, preferring to frequent the protected coves and bays for security.
Gray Whales generally stay closer to the coastline compared to most whales. They also exhibit feeding habits believed to be unique amongst whales: they are bottom feeders. These massive animals scoop sediment off the sea floor in order to filter out tiny nutritious crustaceans from the soil.
We offer a variety of vessels for your whale watching excursions, from large and luxurious multi-decked power cats, to sailboats, to Hawaiian-style catamarans, to small maneuverable zodiacs, to a replica pirate galleon.
