Find out the right time to go whale watching while you’re in Cabo San Lucas.


When people vacation in Cabo, they often look for different ways to spend their time aside from relaxing on the beach. They may embark on a variety of different adventures ranging from land to sea. One of the most exciting things to do while in Cabo is to go whale watching.


While seeing whales up close can be a magical experience, it’s not always guaranteed since they are wild creatures. However, there are ways to improve your chances of seeing whales up close while on a whale watching excursion. The key is to know the best time to go out onto the water.


The Best Season for Whale Watching

The ideal season for whales in Cabo San Lucas is between January and March. This is when whales are the most active and when the waters of Cabo are the most populated by these creatures. During this time, there is typically a 90-95% guarantee that you’ll see whales while on your excursion. However, this doesn’t mean that you won’t get lucky during any other month.


From late December to early January, whales start migrating back to the area, and males start searching for females that they can mate with. When there’s more competition for female whales, the male whales will be more active.


During late January to March, female whales typically start calving, which means that you’ll have a greater chance of seeing baby whales.


Ideal Time of Day for Whale Watching

During the afternoon or early evening time, people will have a greater chance to spot whales while on their whale watching tours. This is because of the high tides and increased winds. The ride may be a bit bumpier, but the sightings of the whales will definitely be worth it.
