About Whale Watching
Whale Watching has become an immensely popular phenomenon worldwide, generating more than two billion dollars of revenue annually across the globe. There is no better place to witness these mammoth marine mammals than off the beautiful coastline of Cabo San Lucas. The warm water coves and lagoons along the shores of the Baja Peninsula draw scores of Gray Whales every year. The Gray Whale may be the most prevalent species of whale to visit the waters near Cabo San Lucas during the winter; The Humpback Whale, the Blue Whale, the Sperm Whale, the Bryde´s Whale, the Sei Whale, the Fin Whale, and the Orca (known as the Killer Whale) may also be spotted in the waters off Los Cabos. The gorgeous weather, panoramic coastal seascapes, and different varieties of whale species make the waters off Cabo San Lucas the ideal whale watching destination. Since certain whales migrate to warm southern climes to give birth and nurse their calves, you are also most likely to spot a mother Gray Whale or Humpback Whale nursing or playing with her calf off the coast of the Baja Peninsula.
Why is whale watching such a popular tour activity? It allows participants to view these truly majestic aquatic creatures in their native environment. You'll be amazed by the scale of these gargantuan cetaceans as they breach the surface of the water. You'll witness their massive backs and dorsal humps rise and fall in a rhythmic wave. You'll be astounded by the spectacle of a dramatic spray of water from the animal's blowhole. You'll be astounded by the incredible display of a tail slap. Witnessing these tremendous mammals can truly make an individual appreciate the wonders of the natural world. Wildlife enthusiasts will always treasure this once in a lifetime ecological experience.
