Humpback whales, a member of the rorqual family, will amaze you with their size. With a weight of about 25-30 metric tons, they are easy to spot. These whales are the most commonly seen whales in Cabo San Lucas. They are known as being the most energetic whales, meaning the viewer can often watch them being active, even leaping completely out of the water making a huge splash. These whales migrate through Cabo from November to April. In December and January, there is a lot of mating activity, meaning sometimes you can hear the male’s mating “song”, which can last up to 30 minutes. In January, many mothers can be seen with their babies.
Gray Whales are the second most encountered while Whale watching in Cabo San Lucas. They migrate to Cabo in late December and mate within Baja’s bays and lagoons. You can see mothers with their newborn babies swimming side by side, practicing for the long migration home. The newborns may be babies, but they can grow up to 55 pounds a day! This whales also dive out of water, making them hard to miss.
