Whale Watching in 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?The gray whales leave the winter waters of Northern Bering and go to the Sea of Cortez every year during fall to give birth and feast on the bountiful food in the tropical waters of the Pacific. 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.
