What You Can Expect

Majestic Whale Watching Adventure from Los Cabos

Whale Watch in Los Cabos!

Each year, hundreds of these majestic giants arrive to the warm waters of Baja California to mate and then give birth to their calves in this protected natural bay located a few hours north of Los Cabos.

The most amazing part of this tour is to admire these whales jumping and playing with their young. Whales enjoy tactile stimulation and their curious calves often come up to the boat to see what all the fuss is about!

Your day will begin with a hotel pick-up service, and then it's a 4 - 5 hour drive to Magdalena Bay. Once at the Bay of Pangas, you'll board a 23" (7 meter) Super Panga boat for a 2 hour ride to watch and play with the whales! After all the excitement on the water, you'll go to a local restaurant for a delicious lunch and to rest for a while before heading back to your Los Cabos hotel.

The knowledgeable captain and crew will strive to make your whale watching experience as fun, safe and interesting as possible, making sure your time on the tour is one to remember forever.

An absolutely wonderful experience! It was so exciting to see the many grey whales in Magdalena Bay. Our guide, Lenin, and driver,Fernando,did an outstanding job. The captain of our whale watching boat was skilled in getting us up close to the whales. The highlight of my day was rubbing the nose of the mother whale who came up and nudged our boat--three times in a row. We had a great late lunch of lobster, shrimp and fish at a local restaurant. It was a wonderful day and I would recommend it without reservation!!

Mountaintop experience! What a great group with whom to travel and what an EXCELLENT guide! No doubt about it...., this is one for the record books! Our captain was skilled. When the whale nudged out boat into a nearby boat, no one was hurt. Scared the mama whale a bit, but she came right back! Delicious seafood lunch of flounder, lobster, and shrimp and a nice croissant bag breakfast, too. Such a perfect day and a bonus stop at Hotel California on the way home made for a nice surprise ending! I would have thought the van ride would have seemed long, but it wasn't at all most likely due to the compatible guide (Luis) and the good driving skills of Juan. Just can't say enough. I will bring friends and do this again. Everyone needs to do it at least ONCE!
