Sea Life Encounters
Wintertime in Cabo coincides with whale season as well as whale shark season, making it a great time to get out on the water and view some of Cabo’s most majestic wildlife. Cabo Adventures offers several excursions that will get you up close and personal with some of Cabo’s most amazing sea creatures. Their Luxury Whale Watching excursion takes place on a double decker catamaran and includes an onboard lunch and open bar. Knowledgeable guides will get you out onto the water, where you’ll sight humpback whales breaching and playing alongside your boat. An onboard hydrophone system allows passengers to hear whale songs as they’re occurring! For an even more active wildlife encounter, consider Cabo Adventures’ Swimming with Whale Sharks adventure. While whale sharks have an intimidating presence at 18-33 feet long, these plankton feeding gentle giants pose no threat to humans. Snorkeling alongside these amazing animals during their winter month peak season is an adventure to be remembered!
Go on an Off-Road Adventure
With day temperatures rarely dipping below 70 degrees, the winter weather in Cabo is perfect for exploring the surrounding desert landscape. Embark on an exciting UTV tour for an off-road adventure through stunning canyon trails, rocks, and dusty roads of the Baja outback. Cabo Adventures offers guided UTV tours through the Cabo canyons and wetlands while discovering the native flora and fauna of the region along the way.
Explore the Sea with Scuba Diving
Situated where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, Cabo is home to incredible reef, pinnacle, and wall dive sites. The water clarity between December and March make winter a great time to go scuba diving in Cabo. The protected rocky reefs of San Lucas Bay are easy enough for beginners while more experienced divers can plunge toward the dramatic walls just offshore. Expect to see whales, sea lions, bullseye rays, and even octopuses.
Spend the Day at One of the Best Cabo Beaches
One of the best things about a winter journey to Cabo is that spending the day soaking up the sea and sun is still a viable option! Medano Beach is where you’ll find plenty of action, with water activities and dining all easily accessible from the shoreline. To get away from the crowds, consider heading to more undeveloped beaches, such as Santa Maria Beach or Chileno Beach.
