That definitely beats riding out a hurricane stuck in your hotel room. Lady Luck is on tourists’ side as the official whale watching season starts in mid-December.

Cabo never seems to let tourists down, even when Mother Nature has other plans. There is always something fun to do in one of Mexico’s top destinations.

Seeing wildlife up close and personal is always a top choice to make lasting vacation memories. As “whale season” approaches, let’s take a look at the top 5 whale watching tours in Los Cabos.

Roger’s Glass Bottom Boat Tour

At first glance, you might be thinking why a glass bottom boat is one of your best options. Tourists tend to want to see a big splash when it comes to whale watching, not stare at the bottom of the boat floor, hoping one swims by.

However, Roger’s Glass Bottom Boat Tour is an excellent tour operator for whale sightings. You can even combine a whale-watching boat ride and see Cabo’s most iconic natural attraction – El Arco (The Arch).

Cabo travelers love Roger’s tour services and have been leaving rave reviews with an impressive 4.9 rating out of 5 stars on Google.
