Whale watching off Cabo San Lucas is in full swing with the migration of humpback and gray whales making the popular resort city at the tip of Mexico's Baja California a perfect place for viewing the spectacular marine mammals.

There's also a chance to see mother whales with their babies.

Such was the case the other day for Whale Watch Cabo, whose guide Nacho captured a snippet of underwater footage of a baby humpback whale swimming above the head of its mother.

It’s short but very sweet:

"The first video footage taken this season of a mother and baby humpback whale," Whale Watch Cabo wrote in the description. "Very exciting! As you can see, the baby is very small, very light in color and only about 1 week old."

The footage was captured by Nacho with a GoPro camera held underwater.

Not surprisingly the reactions on Facebook were all positive:


"So so beautiful"

"So sweet."
