Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore
For more than 30 years, Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournaments have been taking place in Los Cabos. In October, Cabo San Lucas hosts the Los Cabos Offshore Charity Tournament and Black & Blue Marlin Tournament. It’s not just big fish these professional anglers can catch, they can take home life-changing money. The Bisbee’s Black and Blue tournament produces some of the sport’s largest payout that goes into the millions. The three-day fishing tournament will receive live coverage, but you can also cheer on the anglers from shore. If you would rather be in the action and register to participate in the tournament, you can do so here.
This isn’t a specific event, but instead a beautiful spectacle. Starting in October and lasting until mid-April, visitors and locals alike can see migrating whales off the peninsula. Whether you’re watching from the shore or on a whale-watching tour, you can see these beautiful creatures travel through the warm waters of Cabo San Lucas. Our water is the ideal climate, shallowness, and salinity for these migrating animals. Many visit our shores to breed and nurse their young. Some of the whales you may be able to see include the Gray Whale, Blue Whale, Sperm Whale, Humpback, and Fin Whale. Keep your eye out for whales jumping into the air (breaching), whales lifting their head to the surface to take a look around (skyhopping), and whales showing their tail fin as they dive into the water (sounding).
