Where & How to See Whales in Cabo

1. See Them Right from Your Balcony
When you stay in our beautiful Cabo vacation rentals, you’ll have the opportunity to see mom and baby whales right from your balcony! We offer beachfront rentals with gorgeous views, which means you don’t have to go anywhere to enjoy whale watching.

2. Take a Whale-Watching Tour
If you want to get up close to these amazing animals, book a whale-watching tour in Cabo! These tours allow you to observe the whales in their natural environment and are led by local whale experts who will take you to the best spots to see them. Oftentimes, the whales will come right up to the boat! If you’re lucky, whales won’t be the only animals you see along the tour. Tours include the opportunity to see dolphins, sea lions, sea turtles, and seabirds! A whale-watching tour is the perfect way to encounter the variety of marine animals that call Cabo home.

3. Snorkel & Swim with Whale Sharks
For an experience you’ll never forget, go snorkeling or swimming with whale sharks! One of the best places to go snorkeling with whale sharks is the quiet town of La Paz. Swim side by side the 30-foot-long whale sharks as they search the water for plankton. The whale sharks are filter feeders, not hunters, so you can approach them without risk. While you’re in the water, keep an eye out for other marine animals, like dolphins, rays, and whales! It truly is an unforgettable experience and one of the best ways to enjoy what Cabo has to offer.
