Whales start to show up at Los Cabos

While the official start date of the 2023–2024 whale watching season is December 15, several travelers have already had the good fortune to witness them.

Colombian singer-songwriter Karol G posted on her Instagram stories a few weeks ago about her trip to Los Cabos. During her visit, she engaged in a number of tourist activities, such as a luxurious yacht ride in Cabo San Lucas Bay, during which she was taken aback to see three whales displaying their enormous tails.

Whales use Los Cabos as their yearly mating and birthing site. It is situated along one of the planet’s most significant migratory paths for mammals.

In order to protect them from harassment, the Official Journal of the Federation (DOF) published a notice on September 29th, 2023, outlining the specifics of the 2023–2024 whale viewing season for the general public.

It is explained that the Cabo San Lucas Flora and Fauna Protection Area (APFF Cabo San Lucas) includes two restricted zones because of excessive navigation for Baja California Sur, and more especially for the municipality of Los Cabos.

The designated period for whale watching is December 15, 2023, through April 30, 2024.
