Wonder at the Whales of 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?These giant mammals go to the Sea of Cortez every year during fall to escape the winter of Northern Bering and give birth in the tropical waters of the Pacific where they can also find a lot of food. The best place in Mexico to watch these huge but gentle whales with their calves is Magdalena Bay just off the coast of Los Cabos. 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.
