Wonder at the Whales of Mexico
How can one describe the breathtaking moment when the whales come out of the waters and the mere sight of these gray marine mammals leaves you breathless with wonder?Gray whales migrate annually every fall from the cold waters of Northern Bering to the Sea of Cortez to give birth and spend winter months in the warm waters of the Pacific that are rich with food. Magdalena Bay just a little off the coast of Los Cabos is the best place to go whale watching for the mothers and their young. San Ignacio is equally as famous for whale watching but there is a higher possibility of seeing the whales in Los Cabos than any other location in Baja especially during the peak season from the end of December to the end of March. There are strict rules and laws that are imposed on whale watching tours to ensure that the whales are protected. When planning your Mexico vacation, dont fail to include whale watching in your itinerary.
