Whether you’ve experienced the thrill before or you’re new to seeing this spectacular event, a whale watching excursion is sure to be the highlight of your winter vacation in Los Cabos, Mexico.

Starting in mid-December, whales congregate off the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet. Whales make a migration of thousands of miles to visit the warm waters off the Baja to give birth to calves and teach them how to swim. Their arrival means visitors to this stunning location where the desert meets the ocean get to experience their majestic beauty.

You can book an excursion to watch from the water, with options as varied as Zodiac boats to catamarans to sunset cruises. Or, the gray and humpback whales can often be seen from shore, including at some of the Unlimited Vacation Club resorts in the area.

For instance, the Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa is one of those spots, located on the corridor between the two main centers of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez, you may see a whale breaching from the resort, which is ideal for families or couples. It features a heated infinity pool, a waterslide and a children’s area.

Or experience an adults-only vacation at the secluded Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort, set in the exclusive luxury community of Puerto Los Cabos. It’s also on the Sea of Cortez, situated close to a Marina, pedestrian village, gardens and artisan walkway. It’s also located next to golf courses designed by two legends of golf, Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman.

If you’d rather watch the boats head out from the Cabo San Lucas Marina, stay at the Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa. It’s located overlooking Land’s End, in the heart of Cabo and just steps from the Marina. Enjoy the atmosphere of the swimmable Medano Beach right out front, or the luxury pools overlooking the bay and marina.
