Cabo San Lucas Whale Watching Adventure

By far, this is the best whale-watching tour in Cabo. Year after year, the California grey whale ventures over 6,000 miles south following the warmer waters and currents originating out of Alaska. Males head south towards the end of the Baja Peninsula and Mayan Riviera coasts while the females stay behind in Magdalena Bay or Puerto San Carlos giving birth to their young just north of Cabo San Lucas. This is not a high-volume type of whale-watching tour with massive amounts of people. It allows for a more exclusive opportunity to enjoy the grey whales in their natural habitat.  The most astonishing aspect of this Cabo whale-watching tour to Magdalena Bay is that you can catch sight of these impressive, massive mammals closer to the shore than normal, and observe the females teaching their baby calves various types of communications and survival techniques. Your tour begins with a personal pickup and introduction by a guide and chauffeur at your hotel lobby. After your pickup, guests are driven north (approximately 4.5 hours) in a comfortable, brand-new vehicle where you will arrive at Magdalena Bay or Puerto San Carlos Bay. Upon arrival, guests depart for approximately two hours, searching out the whales. Afterward, enjoy an incredible lunch at a local restaurant offering everything from regional fresh lobster, shrimp, and fish.Tour is limited to a maximum of 15 travelers and ends with drop-off at your hotel.
