Baja Whale Watching Expeditions
2023 Season Dates Now Available!
Every winter the Mexican Peninsula of Baja California plays host to an awe-inspiring migration of thousands of whales. Many species of these gentle giants make the long journey down to the Baja Peninsula to find new mates and give birth away from cold arctic waters up north. Baja is known for having the greatest concentration of migrating marine mammals in the entire world. By joining our Gentle Giants Baja whale watching trips, you will have front row seats to the action!
During this special time of year we’re able to get up close and personal with these majestic creatures. New mothers nurse and care for their calves. Humpback whales put on an amazing show as they search for new mates – breaching out of the water in a thunderous splash. Curious grey whales poke their heads out of the water only inches from the boat to say hello. And gigantic blue whales cruise the calm seas. Whether you’re a diver or non-diver this will be the expedition of a lifetime to see these gentle giants in their natural habitat. The humpback whale watching season for Cabo San Lucas runs from mid December to mid April, the grey and blue whale seasons from mid January through late March. But for 1 month every year the peaks of all 3 seasons cross over allowing us to run these super special whale expeditions to see the best of them all!
