Whale Watching Photo Safari

Los Cabos


Witness the majesty of seeing gray and humpback whales that make a more than 6,000-mile trip from the North Pacific to the coast of Mexico. From December through March, whales visit the shallow waters along the Mexican coastline near Baja California. During your trip to Cabo San Lucas in the winter season, see these enormous and gentle creatures filling the Pacific waters nearby.
  • Ride an inflatable speed boat in search of migrating whales
  • Have your camera at the ready to snap pictures like a nature photojournalist
  • Activity duration: 2 hours (not including transportation time to and from activity)
  • Hotel pick-up and drop-off included


Be part of a whale-seeking mission

Your excursion will depart from Cabo San Lucas’ marina or San Jose del Cabo’s hotel zone. Boarding a small, inflatable speed boat with life jackets on, you will be guided by knowledgeable captains who know the waters and where the mammals can be found. Although no guarantee can be made that whales will be spotted, the high concentration of breeding whales in the winter months makes it very possible you will snag the perfect photo.

Photograph whales and more ocean wildlife

With a whale watching photo safari, you become your own National Geographic photographer and join a cruise through the coastal waters in search of breaching whales. With camera at the ready, you may find yourself snapping shots of finned tails slapping the water, whales bursting from the depths, and even a playful dolphin who decided he wanted a taste of fame, as well.
