It’s notable that fin whales, sperm whales, and the critically endangered vaquita porpoise reside year-round. Reading all of this, is it any wonder the Sea of Cortés has become one of the world’s premier playgrounds for adventure-seeking tourists? And Los Cabos is an excellent starting point for anyone wanting to explore the Sea of Cortés and its wonders. Here you’ll see five of our favorite things to see each fall and winter in Los Cabos. For a complete list of activities and activity providers, visit “The Directory” on page 54. Whale sharks: The Sea of Cortés is by far one of the best places in the world to see and swim with these gentle giants. Two of the top spots are Bahía de Los Ángeles and La Paz; the latter only a 95-minute drive from Cabo San Lucas. Tours can easily be arranged from Los Cabos, and the season for swimming with whale sharks lasts roughly from October through May. Cabo Pulmo: While reefs across the world continue to experience dramatic losses of life, Cabo Pulmo has enjoyed a 460 percent increase in the total amount of fish there since it became a protected site in 1995. The two-hour drive from Cabo San Lucas there can get a bit bumpy, but believe us when we say it’s worth it. There are excellent sea views along the way, and once you get there, the diving and snorkeling views are even more spectacular. This is one of only three coral reefs on North America’s west coast and the northernmost coral reef in the eastern Pacific Ocean. In The Log from the Sea of Cortez, Steinbeck
