Mexico Whale Watching

Experience Mexico Whale Watching

Discover the beauty of the Baja Peninsula with a stay at Hilton Los Cabos Beach and Golf Resort, the leader of Mexico luxury resorts. Relax poolside or make time for unique adventures, like whale watching. Join an excursion to see whales up close, or just keep an eye on the waves to see them from the resort. Guests enjoy prime whale watching from any ocean-view guest room, all of our restaurants and our luxurious infinity edge pool.

Los Cabos Whale Watching
Whale lover? Plan a visit to our Los Cabos resort between the end of December and the end of March, the best time to see these majestic mammals in action.

Each winter, humpback whales migrate about 6,000 miles from the cold currents of the Bering Sea in Alaska to our waters off the Baja Peninsula. The Sea of Cortes provides calmer, warm waters perfect for birthing their calves. Be on the lookout for mothers and their calves as they grow and learn survival skills here before their long trek home.

What You'll See
Watch the waters for signs of these gentle giants rising to the surface. Look for flukes, spouting water, or you may see them leaping out of the water, called breaching. If you?d like a closer look, book one of the many whale watching excursions in Mexico that usually operate from Magdalena Bay, the nearest calving area to Los Cabos. Ask our Concierge about the options for Whale Watching.
