As we begin to approach high season in Cabo all sorts of
interesting things start happening.
Perhaps one of the most exciting things is the official
dates for this season’s whale watching.
Whales can be seen all around the middle peninsula of Baja
California Sur. The first official day of the season is December 15. But it starts in
different days in different places. So, if you are planning a trip with whale
watching in mind here are some dates for your diary:
1. December 15 –
to April 15, 2017 - whales will be visiting the area of Protection of Flora and Fauna in
Cabo San Lucas, in the National Park Cabo Pulmo, in Los Frailes, Cabo Pulmo and
San Jose del Cabo,
2. December 15 -
to April 30 2017 - whales can be observed in the Reserve
Vizcaino Biosphere, Laguna Ojo de Liebre, Laguna San Ignacio and Punta Eugenia
, in the municipality of Mulege.
3. 1 January to 30
May 2017 - will be the period for sightings in the
National Park in Loreto Bay.
4. 1 January to 30
April 2017 - whales can be seen in Port Adolfo Lopez
Mateos and Puerto San Carlos de Magdalena Bay , Bahia Santa Maria and Magdalena
Island in the municipality of Comondu. Plus Puerto Chale, in Magdalena Bay, the
municipality La Paz.
Plenty of choices to fit in with your schedule.
But please note – SEMARNAT (Secretariat of Environment
and Natural Resources) advises that these dates may be subject to slight
changes depending on a) when the whales actually arrive and b) any actions that
need to be taken to protect them while here.
