Our Incredible Whale Encounter!
Yes, that’s the back of a Humpback Whale – literally a hundred yards away from our boat!
And there are many many many more pictures and video to come!
My daughter and I spent several days in Cabo San Lucas, located at the southern tip of Baja California…an incredible place to visit – especially when you get on a boat with the terrific company Cabo-Adventures.com to go snorkeling and they stop by the iconic “Arch” first:
Then, it was on to a terrific snorkeling location – but on the way, at least EIGHT Humpback Whales made an appearance – and wowed us!
It all began when someone spotted a “spout” of water spraying out of the sea, our first hint that Whales were around us – several days before the official opening of whale watching season:
After a few minutes of these sightings, we began to see more an more water spouts, then suddenly ALL OF THEM decided to breach the water at once!
Folks, I have so many pictures of Whales breaching the surface – and better yet, I switched to video and got this – incredible footage of the Whales jostling with each other and coming out of the water over and over again:
Yes, these Humpbacks kept spraying water and cresting the sea for miles…here are more pictures of what we experienced:
I switched back to video and got some more footage as well – on this clip, near the end you actually see several come out of the water as if trying to jostle for position!
Well, that was unbelievable! Bravo to Cabo-Adventures.com – what a great company with terrific tour guides!
We had some Dolphins join us for awhile on the ride home:
It was just one of the many great adventures we had with them in Cabo, like the “tailgating” Seal we saw as we headed back into port:
I also got some great video of this Seal encounter as well, and you can see it here:
Every day in Cabo is a great adventure, even when you just go for a beach walk at sunset:
Yes, this fisherman actually caught a fish while we were watching him! See what he reeled in here:
Let me know what you think of our Whale encounter!
