Location and Tips
The humpbacks migrate south from the Arctic feeding grounds in winter (Nov./Dec.) and back to the north in March/April. The chance of sighting whales is very high. There is also a resident population of females the whole winter season giving birth to their young calves. Baja California is one of the most important whale breeding sites.
Humpback and grey whales are common to see also dolphins, sometimes bryde's whales, and the majestic blue whale. There are several tour operators for whale watching. Some of them include the sea lion colony, sea bird nesting colonies and much more.
We'd been diving in Cabo as well. The local dive sites are not that fantastic. We preferred to go for the "Corridor" as there the visibility was much better and it was less noisy. Unfortunately, our trip to Cabo Pulmo was cancelled. This spot is said to be great.
