Whale Shark tours in La Paz
Whale Watching Season in Baja California
The best place to see humpback whales breaching, slapping and fluking in from Cabo San Lucas. During this time it’s normal to see huge pods of dolphins, frequent grey whales and occasional orcas swimming right up close to shore. Whales of all species will travel all the way into the north of the Sea of Cortez.
Arguably the most breath-taking close encounter with gentle giants occurs in Magdelana Bay where grey whales bring their calves to the surface for human interaction!
The humpback whale season officially opens on December 15 and finishes on April 15.
Over on the Pacific side at Magdelena Bay we see the grey whales from January until April with February- March being the optimal time to visit.
From October to April, swim with the Whale sharks in the bay of La Paz.

In Los Cabos whale watching boats come in many different shapes and sizes and a standard tour is 3 hours. The most popular vessel would be a panga option: smaller boats are permitted to get closer to the whales.
With Cabo Private Guide you can upgrade for a different kind of experience based on the size of your group. Or, if you want to combine activities such as whale watching and snorkeling, for example. Other available vessels include a Catamaran or luxury yachts starting at 36 feet. Both options include open bar and lunch.
All our boat charters for whale watching have met the requirements needed to operate in this regulated activity and display the required flag.
