The Los Cabos area, at the bottom of the Baja Peninsula, is situated on the Sea Of Cortez, which is one of the most biologically diverse bodies of water on the planet. It is home to more than 900 species of fish, thousands of species of invertebrates, and a wide array of marine mammals like sea lions, dolphins and whales.
There are few things more awe-inspiring than getting up close and personal with migrating humpback and grey whales, which pass through these waters each winter to give birth and rear their young in Cabo bays and lagoons. Of the 11 whale species found across the globe, eight make their way to the waters off Los Cabos. Visitors can take a whale watching cruise on a local catamaran, but often they can be seen from your private terrace or beach.
If you and your guests would like a closer encounter with whales, consider swimming alongside Whale Sharks in nearby La Paz during the winter months. Whale Sharks are the world’s largest fish and unlike the whale, which is an air-breathing mammal. Although the species are technically carnivores, they are gentle giants whose favorite meal is plankton. They scoop up tiny plants, animals, and small fish with their giant, toothless, filtering mouths, much like a whale does. They swim and feed just below the surface of the water, making them easy to spot. They pay little mind to swimmers at their sides as they swim along.
Imagine the adventures and memories you and your guests can experience at your Cabo destination winter wedding!
