The pictures you take will truly be worth 1,000 words when you join us for a private whale watching tour in Cabo. This one of a kind photo safari begins with a relaxing trip on one of our smooth-riding inflatable speedboats. You’ll enjoy gorgeous panoramic views of the Pacific as we head toward the spots where you’re most likely to see humpback whales breaching and tail slapping in the brilliant blue water. When you and the exclusive group you’re traveling with first spot one of these amazing creatures swimming peacefully in the habitat they call home, the moment will be a magical one.

You may also see Bryde’s whales, Minke whales, frolicking dolphins and the occasional orca! All the while, our expert bilingual guides will make sure that your whale watching excursion is as educational as it is enjoyable.

Whale Watching in the Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez is one of the most beautiful spots in the world for whale spotting. It is sometimes called the Aquarium of Mexico because there is so much biodiversity in its warm waters. The best time to take your private whale watching tour in Cabo will be between December and April because that is when humpback whales gather in Cabo to breed and give birth. In fact, during those months you only need to venture out a short way from the coast to see large groups of whales. While we can’t guarantee your group will see whales on your excursion, nearly all of our tours will enjoy an up close, personal and private view of these majestic marine mammals.

Hear the Humpback’s Song

Humpback whales are known for their beautiful and haunting songs, which are made up of howls, moans, cries and clicks. Scientists aren’t entirely sure why humpback whales sing, though it’s clear that these songs are tools of communication and may be a vital part of their breeding process. What’s fascinating is that the humpback’s song can travel for huge distances. Your private whale watching tour in Cabo will include an opportunity to listen to the humpback’s vocalization with a hydrophone - a specialized microphone designed to be used underwater.

See the Famous Breach!

Humpback whales are not only powerful swimmers, but also one of the species of whale that will leap almost completely out of the water before landing with a huge splash! This behavior, called breaching or cresting, is amazing to witness because it’s still not known why they do it. Breaching is more common among groups of whales, which suggests a social element to the behavior, though humpback whales may breach because it helps rid their skin of parasites or they may just be having fun.

Bryde’s Whales and Minke Whales

In addition to humpback whales, your whale watching tour may include sightings of Bryde’s whales and Minke whales. Bryde’s whales (pronounced "broodus") are actually two species of mostly solitary medium-size baleen whale found in the tropical and subtropical waters of the world. Historically, they were not hunted by commercial whalers but in modern times they have become a target of hunters in parts of the world where whaling is still allowed. Minke whales are the smallest of the great whales and are the most abundant rorqual whales (whales with grooved throats that expand when they feed) in the world today.
