Tour Description

Pre & Post Whale Watching Season Wildlife tours:

little egretAlthough whales are the main attraction throughout the winter months, many other wildlife species can be found in the waters surrounding Los Cabos, both on the Pacific ad Sea of Cortez sides.

We will be focusing on other species of marine life but of course, if we happen to spot a whale while we are out there, we will most definitely stop and see what he/she is up to. The tour would leave at the desired time (09:00 AM) and run for a duration of 2.5 hours. The first 30-45 minutes of the trip will cover history of Los Cabos, along with fish and bird identification along the Land’s End area. We will then stop for a photo opportunity in front of the Arch before moving on to some marine mammal education at the California sea lion colony. From there our tour will head out into either the Sea of Cortez or Pacific Ocean depending on conditions and activity, looking for some of the more impressive pelagic creatures that can be found in Los Cabos waters.

These include common dolphins, spinner dolphins, pilot whales, hammerhead sharks, Mobula manta rays, sea turtles, marlin, thresher sharks, and of course larger cetaceans such as humpback, gray, and blue whales. These tours will finish with a ride down the scenic Los Cabos shoreline, looking for shore birds and taking time for some photo opportunities along the way.

This is a great way to beat the whale watching crowds and enjoy the tranquility of the ocean. Every tour is led by a marine biologist with many years of local experience in finding marine activity and understanding animal behavior.
