Nautilus Whale Watching in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Come and discover why Jacques Cousteau named this region the Aquarium of the world!

Nautilus Whale Watch is an extension of the Nautilus Dive Tech brand. Our Company continues to be dedicated to the sustainable observation of marine life, as well as being committed to safe procedures while observing wildlife both above and below the waters’ of Los Cabos.

Geographically, ecologically, environmentally, and morphologically, Cabo San Lucas is part of the “World’s Aquarium”. As the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, a transitional zone for marine species emerges that is unique and incomparable across the globe.

From November 15th to April 15th the region is visited by a variety of whales to birth and nurse their calves. The humpback whales impress us with their magnificent behaviors and natural beauty. During whale watching excursions we may also have encounters with pilot whales, gray whales, blue whales, minke whales, sea lions, several species of dolphins, sea turtles, and sea birds.

Our mission

At Nautilus Whale Watch we are motivated to understand the environment. Our goal is to help create a lasting connection between humans and the nature that surrounds us. As humans, we protect what we love, and in order to love, we must first understand what we need to protect.

Our whale watching tours are professional, respectful, cautious, and humane regarding the treatment of our visiting whales. In accordance with the rules of SEMARNAT (Mexican Environmental Law), we maintain the distance, speed, and time of observation required to maintain the health of these gentle giants.

Nautilus Whale Watch offers customers the right choice when interacting with the marine environment. We want to offer you and unforgettable encounter!
