Watch for whales while sailing in Baja California

Your adventure begins when you board a comfortable vessel that takes you out to the sea for your whale watching exploration in Baja California, Mexico. The boat features indoor and outdoor seating on two decks, offering you the most optimal view of iconic Cabo landmarks such as the Arch, the sea lion colony and the peaceful Lovers Beach.

The bilingual crew will make you feel comfortable during your boat ride and they’ll use guidance equipment to find whale pods and to listen for their songs. This will help ensure that you’ll spot the magnificent sea mammals and snap great photos of waterspouts, flapping tails and breaching whales on this memorable excursion that lasts more than 2 hours.

Enjoy unlimited food and drinks, and learn more about whales

As you continue sailing, you can go to the indoor seating area of the boat, where dining tables and chairs are available along with an open bar and a Mexican buffet lunch for your day at sea. Of course, you can continue watching for whales and more seaside views from the upper deck, where both shaded and sunny areas are available with benches and tables.

Listen to the friendly crew members as they fill you with knowledge about the whales. They’ll tell you about the sea mammals’ 6,000-mile journey from the cold north Pacific waters to the warm Mexican shorelines every winter to feed and mate. This is why you’re able to see the whales swimming, eating and encouraging their young calves and giving you an unforgettable adventure off the shores of Baja California, Mexico.
