Cabo San Lucas Private Whale Watching 

Cabo San Lucas an San Jose de Cabo that are also known as "Los Cabos", are famous tourist destinations. What we love about this area is that it is one of the best places in the world to observe the magnificent Humpback whale. Let us take you on a private boat, where we leave the main bay with its crowds and search the open pacific ocean for the charismatic Humpbacks that come here very year from November to April to give birth and mate. With a little bit of luck you will get to observe heat runs, where various males chase a female, breaching whales, mothers with their calves and you might even hear the incredible songs those animals produce. We always thake the time to look for dolphins and other pelagic wildlife and also visit the amazing geological formations at Lands end. Nothing compares to observing wild whales in the open ocean!
