Are there Dolphins in Cabo?

The combination of various oceanic currents around Cabo San Lucas provides a remarkably diverse and abundant marine ecosystem that supports multiple species of dolphins all year long.

Cabo San Lucas Whale watching tours have reported seeing nine cetacean species (so far!) that are part of the dolphin family.

Bottlenose dolphins are the most commonly encountered dolphin species during the Cabo San Lucas whale-watching season, with two species of common dolphins coming in second. In addition to dolphins, there are other marine animals that visitors may encounter, like sea lions, sea turtles, manta rays, Mobula rays, and sharks.
