See El Arco de Cabo San Lucas
No trip to Cabo is complete without seeing El Arco de Cabo San Lucas. This famous landmark is made up of eroded rock formed into an incredible natural arch. It’s a must for selfies that let the world know you’re living it up in Cabo! The limestone arch is also a popular hangout for sea lions basking in the sun. You’re almost guaranteed to spot sea lions at the arch between the months of October and December, which make this a must-do on your fall journey to Cabo. Local boat operators can take you out into the water to see El Arco, with glass bottom boat tours and sailing cruises also available.
Swim with Whale Sharks
Cabo is a place of bucket list adventures, and it doesn’t get more extraordinary than swimming with whale sharks! Despite their name, whale sharks are gentle creatures and are considered the world’s largest fish. These gentle giants are herbivores, making them the ideal swimming partner. Whale shark season in Cabo is between October and March, perfect for adding this adventure into your fall journey to Cabo. Cabo Trek offers whale sharks swimming trips throughout the whole season, with snorkeling trips also available.

Many local fishermen offer early morning expeditions, or you can pre-book a full day trip with local tour operators. September through November are some of the best months for fishing in Cabo, with plentiful catches of yellowfin tuna, marlin, sailfish, and wahoo.
