Whale Watching in Cabo San Lucas - Go Deep Go

Whale watching is among the most thrilling activities to experience during your stay in Cabo San Lucas!The whale watching season starts in December and continues into the spring. The whales begin their migration northwards from Antarctica. Gray Whales, Humpback Whales, along Bottlenose Dolphins are frequently spotted when they rest and eat in the waters of Los Cabos.Whales can be difficult to find and require an eye to detect. However, these are the best methods to see whales and enjoy the fun at Cabo San Lucas!



What to look for


You'll be able to see them from above when they move around. If they "breach," they leap up in the air, then turn back, creating quite splashes in the process. It's an incredible sight, and Humpback is among the whales most likely to jump. Unfortunately, a no-conclusive conclusion has yet been reached on the cause of the whale's behavior. The speculation that it's to communicate, hunt, or clean themselves is one possibility.


Another method to identify the signs is to look for "obtaining." It is the act of a tail slapping on the water's surface, which triggers the sound of clapping. It is a commonplace in the whales that inhabit Cabo San Lucas and dolphins in this area. A few studies have shown that, at a minimum, in Humpbacks, Lobtailing is a method of shocking their prey to enhance their chances of success hunting.


Keep an eye out at "logs" when you're whale watching. Humpbacks rest near the surface, so they can relax and breathe simultaneously without needing to go too deep within. Whales all sleep with only one-half of their brains simultaneously, while the other part has to be responsible for respiration. "Logging" can be identified when you see a dorsal fin sticking up out of the water but not moving.


If a whale is seen vertically floating over the surface, it's "spy-hopping." It happens when they are interested in something and want to investigate it. They emerge from the water this way to use their eyes (and ears, in the case of the Gray Whale) to evaluate the surfaces of objects. They're often seen sky-hopping to take a closer look at whale watching vessels, and if they're lucky, you might see them hanging out for a few minutes.
