Cabo San Lucas. We do Whale Shark trips and Island trips to swim with the
Sea Lions almost everyday as long as the weather allows here in La Paz.
We will begin trips for the Gray Whales as soon as they start going into the bays (normally mid January) There are many Gray's in the Pacific right now but they really haven't come in to the bays just yet.
We have 5 boats that we use for Whale watching and each boat can take 7 people max due to Govt. restrictions. There are many companies that provide what I call "Water Taxi" service to see the Gray Whales, but we provide a higher level of service and make the trip an "Excursion" with many extra details that make it fun and interesting for everyone.
If you would like more details and pricing, please contact me via email at MikeRmex@gmail.com
Take good care and have a GREAT day!

you can also drive from constitution, mostly due west, to san carlos. a little closer but we like mateo since its a smaller bay and more consentration, but both are well worth it. when we're done, drive back to constitution, have lunch and home to la paz by 5ish.
also most of the outfitters along the malacon offer trips. you can certainly do in 1 day, but pushing it. for $40 spend the night and enjoy!!!

had another incredible day with benjamin duarte yesterday. about 4 hrs and out away from the crowd of other tour boats. he knows where to go to see the big ones without other boats around. there were about 20 total, up to 12 meters.perfect conditions, calm and clear sea and 85 degree water. we got within inches of the gills and mouths and really had to be careful of the tail flip.
benjamin know's his stuff having studied the whale sharks for many many years. listening to his commentary in the background of my video is fun. plus his enthusiasm is remarkable after all the tours he's done. he's a true expert! and perfect english!!
the panga departs from dock at la costa restaurant just 2 blks from marina la paz. he has all snorkel gear and unlike other tours, he gets in water with you and pulls you along to get fantastic underwater viewing. most other tours leave you on your own to figure it out. plus he has 2 GoPro underwater cameras to film you with the whale sharks. if you have wanted to try this but been unsure, give him a call, or email, you sure won't be disappointed.
i copied him in so you'll have his email and his phone is 612 139 0202
