Whales season starts in Cabo

Date Published:

It’s that time of year again. No, not Christmas, whale watching. The official season begins today, December 15, and will run until April the 30 2017.


Around 2500 gray whales are expected throughout the season - most of them in the coastal lagoons of Ojo de Liebre and San Ignacio. Both areas form part of the whale sanctuary in the Biosphere Reserve of El Vizcaino.


The whale sanctuary was created back in 1972 to try and encourage preservation of the whales which were an endangered species back then.


The sheltered lagoons have allowed the species to flourish as the warm waters are ideal for breeding. And Mexico’s robust conservation policies to protect the whales, guarantee the safety of these huge cetaceans during stay in Mexican waters.

The whale sanctuary is now universally recognized as the best place in the world for the breeding and rearing of the gray whale. And it was awarded World Heritage Site status in 1993.


Watching the adult whales and calves swim and play is a phenomenal natural experience. And one that should definitely not be missed if you are in Cabo over the holidays.


There are loads of tourism service providers that will take you to see the whales. But make sure you go with a reputable company that has a permit
