Whale time in Cabo

Date Published:

Grey whale feeding

Big excitement this weekend as the first sighting a grey whale was made in the waters of Laguna Ojo del Liebre, in Loreto.


Experts suggest this is most likely the arrival of the male whales, which typically arrive 2-3 weeks before the pregnant females. They expect more to arrive in Laguna San Ignacio and Magdalena Bay over the next week or so.


The waters around BCS, especially in Loreto, typically attract up to as many as 5000 grey whales per season. It is estimated that at least 2000 of these whales will have been born in the waters of Ojo del Libre, San Ignacio or Magdalena bay.


Every year these huge cetaceans swim more than 12 thousand kilometers from the cold waters of the North Pole to the warmer waters of Baja California Sur. Where they stay for about five months feeding, mating and giving birth.


The whales bring thousands of tourists to the area every year. And provide huge economic benefits to the local community. And to safeguard the lives of the whales, loads of conservation programs are in place. Plus, training and permits for all tour operators. Make sure you take a tour with a registered provider.
