There aren’t many places in the world where you can see whale sharks. La Paz, Mexico is an exception. Science didn’t even know whale sharks existed until 1828. Jacques Cousteau, the famous underwater explorer, only saw three in his entire life. Yet this is…
You’re motoring along, the gentle sound of waves lapping against the hull, splish splish splish. Suddenly WHOOOSH!—a whale blows nearby. A fountain shoots up from a dark rubbery head emerging from the shining blue. You’re reminded that these water giants, so perfectly adapted to life in the sea, are air breathers just like you.

In this age of greenwashing, it’s hard to know what’s the real deal and what’s corporate “adspeak” when it comes to eco-tourism. At Cabo Expeditions, we work hard to make as little impact on the natural environment as possible. And we stay ahead of the pack with new and unique tours no one else in Cabo can offer.
Only Cabo Expeditions offers these two underwater experiences that make it easy and fun for people of all ages to experience sea life up close and personal. Now you don’t have to be a certified scuba diver or experienced snorkeler to enjoy the colorful underwater world.
Baja California is famous for three species of whales that come to three different habitats every winter. To see all three you need to go from Cabo’s humpback mating grounds to Loreto up the inland coast for blues, and then across the peninsula to San Ignacio Lagoon, breeding grounds for gray whales. We’re doing just that this year in Cabo’s very first multi-day whale watching expedition.
Why is the archipelago of remote, uninhabited islands in the Sea of Cortez called “Mexico’s Galapagos?” It’s an area that UNESCO deemed a World Heritage Site.
Winter is for whales and sunshine. Whales are intelligent animals who—like you, maybe—find it’s worth a trip to get out of the cold. Humpbacks and gray whales find safe, warm breeding grounds in the waters off the tip of the Baja peninsula.
When a whale dives and descends out of sight, a shiny, almost oily-looking round “print” forms on the water’s surface. Old-time whalers would chase a whale following these fluke prints. Modern whale-watchers follow them too.
Of the 922 islands in the Sea of Cortez, 244 make up a UNESCO World Heritage Site, classed with the Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, and the Galapagos Islands.
