Has anyone cruised to Western Mexico for whale watching during the months of Jan Feb or Mar? Did anyone cruise by Bahia Magdalena or take any of the whale watching boats out of Cabo San Lucas or Puerto Vallarta? And if so any suggestions? Is it best to take the ships sponsored whale watching trips or is it best to just go ashore and find a boat?
We took the whalewatching tour in Cabo with carnival in early Feb. It was on a new, large, catamaran with open bar and snacks. It was about $75 for 2.5 hrs. Thre was no travel time as it is tied up at the dock where the tenders dock from the ship. It was a very good whalewatching tour with at least four or more humpbacks sighted including calf, which stayed near the boat for the entire time we were out. It was right outside of the main harbor and we never really had to go anywhere. Very close sightings and more than expected.
