Whale Watching with Sandos Finisterra

Winter begins once again in Baja California, a truly magical time of year in our city of Cabo San Lucas. But this travel hotspot doesn’t get low temps and snow like other parts of the world. No… here we await the arrival of whales to our shores.

Starting in the month of December and continuing through March, we enjoy whale watching season in Cabo San Lucas. Every winter, visitors to this destination can see the immense gray whales and humpback whales in their natural habitat as they migrate through the waters of Baja California. If you want to see these impressive animals in action, you’ll discover many opportunities for a truly unforgettable whale watching experience.

Whale watching from the hotel

First, you need to make sure to book your stay at a hotel with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, and Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos offers you exactly that. Thanks to an incredible location on a cliffside by a beautiful beach, we have several spots where you can sometimes see the whales as they migrate through the area on your vacation: the ocean view guestrooms on our upper levels, the upper-level hallways, and the terrace at Whale Watcher Bar. The best times of day to spot whales are at sunrise and sunset.

Whale watching tours

Those who have been to Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos know that the location of this all inclusive resort also offers you quick access to the famous Cabo San Lucas marina, situated just steps away from the hotel entrance. At the marina, you’ll come across many choices for whale watching tours so you can see these enormous creatures from a closer distance; these tours offer a variety of itineraries and intensity levels, all depending on just what kind of experience you want for your vacation.

Cabo San Lucas whale watching tours normally last at last two hours, taking you out onto the ocean to discover groups of whales migrating through the Pacific. Many tours will also stop by other local attractions, like the sea lion colony and the Land’s End Arch.

Adults and kids alike can enjoy this grand experience thanks to tours that are safe for humans and whales alike. The captains of each tour strive to minimize the impact that this activity has on the whales: they keep a low speed as well as a safe distance so they won’t scare the animals. Whale watching tours also help to create awareness among the community and tourists about preserving these endangered species, and they have even become a key element in saving the lives of these animals.
