Why Book a Private Whale Watching Tour?
Private whale watching tours are a great option for groups of travelers who wish to experience these gentle giants with their own private party, without having to mingle with other groups of travelers. Typical private groups we host include those on corporate retreats, family reunions, wedding parties, and more.
Private Whale Watching in the Sea of Cortez
The Sea of Cortez is one of the most beautiful spots in the world for whale watching. It is sometimes called the Aquarium of Mexico because there is so much biodiversity in its warm waters. The best time to take your private whale watching tour in Cabo will be between December and April because that is when humpback whales gather in Cabo to breed and give birth.
In fact, during those months, you only need to venture out a short way from the coast to see large groups of whales. While we can’t guarantee your group will see whales on your Cabo excursion, nearly all of our tours will enjoy an up-close, personal and private view of these majestic marine mammals.
Hear the Humpback’s Song Through the Hydrophone
Humpback whales are known for their beautiful and haunting songs, which are made up of howls, moans, cries, and clicks. Scientists aren’t entirely sure why humpback whales sing, though it’s clear that these songs are communication tools and maybe a vital part of their breeding process. What’s fascinating is that the humpback’s song can travel huge distances. Your private whale watching tour in Cabo will include an opportunity to listen to the humpback’s vocalization with a hydrophone - a specialized microphone designed to be used underwater.
See the Whales' Famous Breach in Cabo San Lucas!
Humpback whales are powerful swimmers and one of the whale species that will leap almost completely out of the water before landing with a huge splash! This behavior, called breaching or cresting, is amazing to witness because it’s still not known why they do it. Breaching is more common among whales, which suggests a social element to the behavior, though humpback whales may breach because it helps rid their skin of parasites, or they may just be having fun.
Catch a Glimpse of Bryde’s Whales and Minke Whales
In addition to humpback whales, your private whale watching tour may include Bryde’s whales and Minke whales' sightings. Bryde’s whales (pronounced "broodus") are actually two species of mostly solitary medium-size baleen whales found in the world's tropical and subtropical waters.
Historically, they were not hunted by commercial whalers, but in modern times they have become a target of hunters in parts of the world where whaling is still allowed. Minke whales are the smallest of the great whales and are the most abundant rorqual whales (whales with grooved throats that expand when they feed) in the world today.
