Whale Watching From a Hotel Balcony in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is just a short three hour flight from San Francisco. In the middle of a unusually raining winter, the flight seems even shorter.

I just returned from four days of laying in the sun, swimming in pools and sipping margaritas. We [Ciji and I] stayed at a really nice resort along the Pacific Ocean called Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach. Our room had a balcony with a virtually unobstructed view of the ocean, and while kicking back with a few ice cold Sols we saw a whale breach the surface of the water not too far off shore.

Lucky I had my Flip close by and was able to catch the Planet Earth moment as it happened. Cool, right!?

  1. That’s so cool! Those whales are way too close to shore for my liking though.

  4. Wow! Did this whale just happen by while you had your camera in hand or did you two set this up?

  5. I was at Pueblo Bonito in mid-January and there were lots of whales. I saw one out there jump backwards 4 times in a row! The locals said this time of year they’re raising their calves. Saw them on both snorkel & sunset cruises too. So fun to see.

    1. I had heard that this was a prime time of the year to see whales, but definitely wasn’t expecting to be able to see one from my room! Glad that I had my camera close by.
