Grand Solmar Resort and Spa has compiled a list of some of the best sights to see during the 2015 whale season in Los Cabos. Since there is so much eye candy in this Mexican locale, remember to catch a glimpse of these natural treasures when visiting during whale season:
Whales. Of course…Los Cabos generally offers a whale sighting success rate of more than 98 percent. So bring a camera to capture that once in a lifetime shot. Humpback whales are the most common type of whale, but gray whales are also spotted. Although uncommon, blue, orca, Bryde’s, minky and sperm whales may also be seen. Grand Solmar Resort and Spa advises that visitors hoping to see these creatures book guided boat trips for the best sighting chances.
Dolphins. Like whales, these aquatic mammals use the waters off Los Cabos in their migratory patterns. Pods of bottlenose, spinner, spotted and common dolphins may be seen. Watching these social creatures frolic in their natural habitat can be quite an experience. Grand Solmar Resort and Spa travel experts note that since dolphins give birth in autumn, some fortunate visitors may be able to see some calves.
Sharks. More than 350 types of sharks swim off the Mexican coast. Silky, dusky, Galapagos and hammerhead sharks feed here, along with the giant whale shark. As sightings have become rarer, seasoned divers should probably reserve escorted dive trips to have the best chance of seeing a shark. Keep this tip in mind from Grand Solmar Resort and Spa: bring an underwater camera!
Other marine life. Sea turtles, rays, sea lions, pelicans, terns and more can be seen at local beaches. Those who swim underwater can see all types of species including eels, seahorses, huge groupers, schools of colorful reef fish, sea cucumbers and marlin.
