Cabo San Lucas:

During my January 2022 trip to Mexico, I spent a total of four days in Cabo San Lucas, one day before cruising through the Socorro Islands, and three days after.

During Winter, there are generally many Humpback Whales in the neighboring waters of the Sea of Cortez and the eastern Pacific Ocean.

The whales migrate there annually to mate and give birth.

I spent all four mornings in Cabo San Lucas in a small “water taxi,” cruising within a few miles of Cabo San Lucas, observing and photographing Humpback Whales.

As is normal for January, there were plenty of Humpback Whales around!

I was especially hoping for shots of nearby breaching whales, similar to those that I had been lucky enough to capture during two previous trips to Cabo San Lucas.

However, it was not to be this time around.

Unfortunately, the breaching activity that I observed was usually quite far away.

On those few occasions when a whale breached close by, I wasn’t properly positioned to get a shot.

Oh well!

So it goes with Nature photography!

In any case, I enjoyed being out on the water, and did get to observe and to photograph other interesting Humpback Whale surface activities.

There were also numerous enjoyable close encounters with Bottlenose Dolphins, California Sea Lions, and several bird species, which enhanced the overall experience.

So, in my next few posts, I’d like to share some of my favorite images from Cabo San Lucas.

Today, I’ll feature Humpback Whales:

Two photos of Humpback Whales “Spy Hopping”; six shots of Humpback Whale flukes, as the whales began to dive; and two images of Humpback Whales “Tail Lobbing.”


Stay safe, and have a great day!
