What is the likelihood of spotting whales in the Sea of Cortez or other Mexican Riviera ports in October? We are booked on Carnival Splendor to PV, Mazatlan and Cabo. Seeing whalies would make the cruise that much better for the DW, though we know we are out of the main season.
All I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; John Masefield

I donot think you will see any whales. The season on the MR is from December till Mid March, so it looks like you are there too early in the season.
Maybe (very small chance) you see some on their way while sailing.
