Outstanding tour with knowledgeable marine biologist on board. It was the last day for whale tours this season and they were able to find several whales and a pod of dolphin. I recommend this tour!

Great whales
Lawrence_G, Apr 2024
The guide and boat captain were great. Took us right to an area with whales. Even brought us back to a dock closer to our cruise ship when tour ended.
Seeing whales up close is incredible
Frank_S, Apr 2024
We spent about an hour with a mother whale and her calve. It was awe inspiring. Equally impressive was the educational component from our guide. I learned so much about whales. Highly recommend!
Best whale watching tour ever!

Payo and Captain Alonso were excellent guides and navigators. We could see their care towards the whales and their knowledge demonstrated. Seeing a whale breach three times was a signt to see. Highly recommend this activity with this company. And Payo recommended a good restaurant to eat at after the excursion.

Watching a mom humpback whale and her baby for about half an hour together! Also learning a lot about the humpback whales from our guide who was very knowledgeable.

Book it, great experience!

Tour was awesome! Marine Biologist/guide Sara and Captain Alonso were great at spotting the whales about surface. Sara shared a a lot of interesting info on the Humpback Whales. Small group and they share pics at no extra cost.
You won’t be disappointed!!
Roberta_C, Mar 2024
Highly recommend this tour! A small group of 12 people with an experienced guide (Poma) and a boat captain. They stayed away from the typical ‘circus’ of whale watching boats and found great areas to experience the whales and their babies. Poma was incredibly knowledgeable and her insight into the whales made the experience even better! We couldn’t have been happier with our choice to go on this tour, you won’t be disappointed!
Great whale experience!

Guide, Oscar, was very knowledgeable. We saw whales!!! Followed a mom, baby and escort for quite awhile. Saw a breech. This company is great because photos are included in the price.
Book this vendor and only this vendor.

I've been on a ton of whale tours, plus I live in Santa Barbara and have year round humpbacks in my own backyard. Yet, this tour still blew away all previous trips. 5 humpbacks, just gliding along next to our boat for an hour. Saw one breach about ten times (my first time witnessing this behavior). This tour has actual marine biologists that give an adequate amount of space and don't stress the whales, which makes them want to stay close. When a very gross yacht rolled in with your standard Cabo clientele, the whales kept switching directions and ultimately continued to cruise by our boat because they knew who were their friends. Book this vendor and only this vendor.
Great Adventure

Being on a smaller boat allowed for closer encounters with the whales. The staff was knowledgeable of the marine life and very good at finding the whales
Memorable Whale Watch
Jacob_W, Mar 2024
The naturalist and researcher on the boat answered all our questions, took plenty of professional-quality photos, and made sure we got to see plenty of whales!
Awesome Whale Watching!
Linda_L, Mar 2024
We had a WONDERFUL whale watching tour! The momma and baby whale put on a prolonged tail slapping display and that made our day! We saw other whales prior to them also. Our guide was so knowledgeable about whales. A great tour!
