What makes this outfit so special is the biologist guide. Albert was informative and charming, and took great photos, too. This company is the most respectful of the whales out of the four we tried.

Our whale watch was incredible. Our captain Santos and guide Liria took us on a little tour of Land's End before we went out looking for whales. We saw so many whales. The baby whales were very playful jumping out of the water. Liria is a Marine biologist and is very knowledgable about the animals and the area. She also... More

Thanks very much for joining us to meet the wonderful whales of Cabo! It is amazing to hear their exhalations and inhalations - but you do need to look out for wind blowing the Whale Spray!

Thank you for joining Whale Watch Cabo to meet the Mother and Baby Gray Whales in their nursery waters of Lopez Mateos/Magdalena Bay.
