Each winter, Humpback and Gray Whales migrate to the warm waters off Los Cabos from as far north as Alaska. From early December until mid-April, you can see whales spouting, jumping, and playing off the beach from almost anywhere in Los Cabos. The best time for whale watching in Cabo, though, is right now—early January until early March.

Whale watching has become one of the biggest draws for visitors from all over the world to Los Cabos. The natural biodiversity of the Baja’s southernmost point offers a unique opportunity to encounter the world’s three largest species of whales, as well as orcas, dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, and hundreds of varieties of tropical fish.


Cabo Luxury offers many different whale watching options for the whole family.


Breakfast Whale Watching Cruise

Best for: families (especially those with grandparents and young children)

This large double-decker catamaran ensures the smoothest ride. With clear viewing from both upstairs and downstairs, you can see whales from anywhere onboard. This tour offers a full breakfast, open bar, and an MC who will keep you entertained and help you spot all the whale breaches.


Whale Watching Zodiac Tour

Best for: the adventurous souls

These “go-fast” Zodiac boats allow you to maneuver quickly and zoom across the water to get as close as possible, while maintaining the safety of both you and the whales. This tour will get you up close and personal with the whales as they jump and play. You may even get splashed!


Whale Watching on a Private Sailboat

Best for: couples, families, or friends who prefer a more intimate experience

Cabo Luxury offers private sailboats and catamarans for groups of all sizes who wish to have a more personalized whale watching experience. Our knowledgeable captains keep their eyes on the horizon and can spot a whale from hundreds of yards away. They will get you as close as possible (again, while maintaining everyone’s safety) so you can get great photos. Private sailboat whale watching tours also include open bar and breakfast/lunch.


Whale Watching on a Private Yacht

Best for: the luxury lover

If you prefer to whale watch in true Cabo Luxury style, charter one of our private yachts for a completely customized, 5-star experience. Each private yacht charter comes with a chef-prepared menu (some even have a chef onboard) and open bar. Our captains and crews are not only experts on the water; they are experts in service and will make sure your whale watching trip is unforgettable.
