You splurged on the family-sized sunscreen and got yourself a new set of shades. You’re heading to Cabo, Mexico’s Finest place for whale sighting, and you’ve got a date with some vitamin D! Heck, you might even rent a surf board and see if you can ride a Black’s Beach wave all the way to the shore. But you’re also about to lay anchor in just about the best place for whale watching, so it would be a shame to leave Cabo without an ocean excursion. You might spot a gray or blue whale in the wild, launching an epic oceanic photography career. Or at least earn a lot of Instagram hearts.
If you’ve never been on a whale scouting excursion, your adventure begins by checking out the guide to whale watching. It tells you everything you need to know before you go. If telling whale tales is old hat, the guide will remind you what you love about catching a glimpse of the world’s largest sea mammals. Cabo is one of the top spots for ocean adventures.
When the first chill of winter sneaks through the window, visions of palm trees will sway through your head. We can see the wheels spinning—you want to jump on the next plane bound for Baja. But when it’s whale watching deals you’re after, a pro knows to arrive during the right season. Gray whales migrate between Alaska and Baja California from mid-December through April, while blue whales feed just off the coast from the middle of June until September.
Viewfinder Tip: If you paddle close to whales in a kayak, never obstruct their path to deeper water and always approach from the side.
Don’t forget to look back, your eyes are pointed toward the horizon and you’re ready to spot a pod of marine mammals. But we have one last piece of advice before you leave the shore in your mist. Turn around and snap a few pics of the stunning Cabo coast. You don’t want to spend so much time staring at the sea that you fail to appreciate the views in the other direction.
