Humpback Whales Return to Los Cabos

Whale watching in Los Cabos Mexico

Humpback whales have arrived in Los Cabos following their impressive migration from the waters of Alaska

Every winter, migrating humpback whales make their way down the Pacific Coast of North America to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Here, they mate and give birth to the next generation. The winter months are an incredible time to view these majestic creatures up close.  Cabo Expeditions offers wonderful, insightful tours led by knowledgeable guides to view these gentle giants in the waters of Los Cabos. Talented photographer Oscar Ortiz of their team has shared these breathtaking shots below taken in recent days.

Oscar explains that, “This year we have seen large groups of humpbacks, lots of mating activity and 3 baby whales so far. The whales look very big and healthy, a sign that they’ve had a great feeding season.” Oscar also explains that the whale’s flukes in the photos are important for their team as they “help identify individuals; it’s like the whale’s unique fingerprint.” Oscar’s team has had great opportunities so far this season to experience the whale’s songs, “they have similar melodies but different voices.”
