Humpback Whales in the Sea of Cortez

The Sea of Cortez, is home to a diverse range of marine life, including one of the largest populations of humpback whales in the world.

Humpback whales are known for their impressive acrobatic displays, including breaching and tail slapping. They are also famous for their haunting songs, which can be heard for miles underwater. These majestic creatures can grow up to 50 feet in length and weigh up to 40 tons.

Every year, humpback whales migrate from their feeding grounds in the North Pacific to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez to mate and give birth. The shallow sheltered bays of the Sea of Cortez provide the perfect environment for mothers to nurse and care for their calves.

While humpback whales were once hunted to near extinction, conservation efforts have helped to increase their populations in recent years. In the Sea of Cortez, humpback whales are protected by international law, and boat tours are strictly regulated to ensure that they do not disturb the whales or their habitat.
