All About Cabo Answer

Hi Erin! 

Whale watching is quite popular in Cabo and a great activity for everyone.  The best time to see the whales is January – March when the gray whales make their annual migration – all the way from Alaska. However you can see them a little before and after this time period as well. 

It is possible to see the whales from the beach and some hotels like the One&Only Palmilla offer whale watching telescopes or bincoculars in their rooms. 

If you want to see the whales up close and personal. you should definitely check out a whale watching tour or cruise. Most boating companies offer whale watching cruises. Check out reviews and tour websites and find the tour that is the best fit for you. 

You can find boats that offer everything from private cruise to group cruises with unlimited alcohol! 

Send us some pictures and have a great time!
