We made our way to Cabo San Lucas by way of the Crown Princess cruise ship in January. We booked a whale watching tour with Whale Watch Cabo. Since we didn’t go into the town, my pictures of Cabo are only of the pier area. It’s a beautiful little place with lots of sailboats, shops, and a few bars. Since... More

A large and comfortable boat (so a lot safer than the small dinghies - you know what happened here in the spring of 2015 when a tourist was killed), a knowledgeable guide and an excellent captain who took us close to several whales.

Thanks for joining us to meet the amazing Whales of Los Cabos. Whale Watch Cabo operates 32 foot Super Panga boats, larger than the industry standard rubber Zodiacs, as we feel the Super Panga is the best combination of comfort, ease of viewing, safety, shade from the sun, and minimizes the disturbance to the Whales. Very sad event you mention.... More

We loved whale watching and saw lots of whales. We chose a more luxury boat vs. a smaller inflatable boat. Ours included unlimited drinks and great lunch. Transportation directly to Marina and escort picked us up at gate at end to rake us back.

Our tour guide Liria was wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable, answered all of our questions and took pictures of the whole trip. Our captain Santos was also great. Took an 8:15 tour and were the only ones on the boat- felt like we had a private tour! Saw so many whales, even a blue whale which Liria exitedly noted was quite rare.... More
