Whale Shark Experience in La Paz

December 10, 2018

In the historic seaside town of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez two hours north of Los Cabos, benign whale sharks are common at this time of year. Cabo Expeditions, a top outfitter, enables adventurers to swim and snorkel beside these magnificent animals. They’re filter feeders, not hunters, so swimming and snorkeling alongside these gentle giants, which attain a length of 30 feet, is safe.

An unforgettable close-up encounter awaits in the company of a Cabo Expeditions tour guide. As the whale-sized fish glides slowly through the water in search of plankton, you’ll be at their side observing their feeding habits. Swimming gently near the surface, these docile creatures allow you to approach them without risk.

The whale sharks of La Paz attract researchers as well as snorkelers. Visitors who capture a good image of a whale shark can send it to the Wildbook for Whale Sharks (a https://www.cabo-adventures.com/en/tour/whale-shark-encounter), an international scientific database.

Also included on the tour is a visit to the iconic mushroom of Balandra Beach, where you can bury your toes in the sand and have the gentle surf lap around your feet. Tour participants also have time to enjoy the beauty and serenity of La Paz, the capital city of Baja California Sur.

You’ll close out the day’s adventure by heading west across the Baja Peninsula to the Pacific Ocean and the small, beautiful town of Todos Santos, a “Pueblo Magico” known for its quaint cobblestone streets lined with charming cafes and artisan shops.

The tour returns to Los Cabos around 8:30 p.m.—be sure to make late dinner plans!
