    I searched & didn't find a list of things to do in Cabo like we have in the Riviera Maya forum.

    I'm starting to think about my trip to Cabo with my mom. If we go in the winter I'd love to go whale watching

    Whale Watching

    From January through March, it’s easy to spot a gray or humpback whale around Los Cabos without even trying. Making the longest migration of any mammal, grays travel 6,000 miles from the Bering Sea to calve in the buoyant shallow lagoons of San Ignacio, Scammon’s, Ojo de Liebre, and Magdalena Bay, all north of Los Cabos. Some travel further south to the Sea of Cort©s. Ranging from 40 to 50 feet long and weighing up to 73,000 pounds, grays are classified as Cetacea, marine mammals that include whales, porpoises and dolphins and belong to Mysticeti, one of the three families of great baleen whales. Shore loving grays are the only whale to bottom feed. With long snouts and double blowholes on top of their heads, grays have a hump with dorsal ridges running to their flukes (tail) in place of a dorsal fin. While the gray whale is not the only species you will see (humpback, blue, sperm, Bryde’s, sei, fin, and the occasional orca travel these waters), along with the playful humpback it is the most commonly sighted around Los Cabos. On a whale watching excursion, you’ll see spouting, breaching (leaping almost completely out of the water and falling back with a large splash), and sounding (showing their flukes), all spectacular sights. To watch mothers and calves up close, trips to Magdalena Bay, the closest lagoon, are best made with daytrip fly-in tours. A©reo Calafia runs trips during the season, an experience no whale lover should miss.

    We also like to zipline. What do you zipline over in Cabo? In riviera maya it's the jungle.

    Has anyone gone here? Isla Espiritu Santo, Baja California - kayak touring

      Morgan,

      I don't know if I would zipline in Cabo b/c it's mostly dessert KWIM?

      the coolest thing IMO in Cabo is the Baja Racing - that is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      also - 4 wheeling is cool b/c you go on the beach and through the city and up into sand dunes - a lot of fun!

              It's old now I'm sure but I wrote a detailed zip line review. Search for Canopy Costa Azul.
