Whales in Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.
Los Cabos’ biggest celebrities arrive like clockwork every winter. They don’t stay in plush resorts or dine in fancy restaurants. Instead, they put on wild shows for the thousands who have come just to see them. Every fall, humpback, gray, and blue whales begin a 6,000-mile journey south from Alaska so they can winter at the southernmost point of the Baja Peninsula. There are several ways to watch their flamboyant escapades:
Activities companies like Buccaneer Queen, Cabo Expeditions, Cabo Rey, Cabo Sail and Ok Baja offer special whale watching tours. You can casually watch while on a water taxi or wave runner making your way out to Land’s End. Guests onboard sunset cruises are likely to catch several sightings. And you can even expect to see some while sunbathing on many of the famous beaches of Los Cabos, including Medano and Chileno.
