Wonder at the Whales of Mexico

One can never quite describe the awe and wonder you feel at seeing whales frolicking in their natural habitat after your anticipation have built up while scanning the waters looking for these graceful mammals. Gray whales migrate annually every fall from the cold waters of Northern Bering to the Sea of Cortez to give birth and spend winter months in the warm waters of the Pacific that are rich with food. Magdalena Bay just a little off the coast of Los Cabos is the best place to go whale watching for the mothers and their young. 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. Whale watching tours make sure strict rules and guidelines are followed in order to ensure that the whales are not harmed.
