ANNUAL WHALE MIGRATION

  • January 1, 2011 to March 31, 2011
  • When: December — March

There is no place on earth where more whales can be seen at such close range than around the western coastal waters and lagoons of the Sea of Cortez in Southern Baja. The whales like the shallow, warm waters and can easily be seen during the months of December, January, February through March. It´s a mighty experience to coexist with nature and to witness it in its purest form. The whales frolic and blow like geysers along the shores in front of the resorts, however if you are interested in taking a whale watching boat trip please just let us know and we will be happy to assist.

TURTLE MIGRATION

Turtle Migration

One of the most memorable experiences in Los Cabos is the release of baby turtles into the Sea—and turtle release time is August to October. Locals and visitors gather on the beach, home to migrating Olive Ridley and Leatherback turtles, to assist the hatchlings on their journey for survival. 14 days after getting pregnant the female will dig one or two holes, about one and a half feet deep where she will lay 100-120 eggs. One turtle can nest 4 to 6 times a year. Nature tells us when the turtles will hatch, about 45 days from the time they were laid. It's better for them to be released at the sunset as they have a better chance to get away from predators at night. They don't breathe underwater so they swim for 7 days until they actually start feeding themselves. Saving any animal from dying is rewarding, but saving an animal from extinction feels just plain right.
