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.

Captain Santos and Kara where fantastic! The boat was small but was comfortable and had plenty of room for our tour of 8 people. Shortly after we left the harbor we came upon a large pod of dolphin. They were very active and we got some amazing photos. Next we found a single humpback whale. The whale wasn't in the... More

Thanks for joining Captain Santos and our Guide Kara to encounter all the amazing Marine Life here in Los Cabos.

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

Whale Watch Cabo's Guides are all Marine Biologists and as such our level of knowledge, experience and passion for the respectful and educational observation of the wonderful Whales of Los Cabos is unmatched in the local industry.

Everything went as planned! Great experience. You can't plan for the whales to jump out, but we saw the bodies and fins of multiple whales.

Thank you for sharing your impressions of Whale Watch Cabo. We really appreciate the knowledgeable observation you share in that no one can plan for 'whale activity - like jumping out of the water/breaching'. While Whale Watch Cabo has an over 99% sightings success rate since we began, our years of data show one conclusive fact, you cannot predict whale... More

We had the opportunity to have Lilia as our guide. Her knowledge and photography skills were excellent. We love the fact that we could just relax and enjoy while she took all the pictures.

I have always wanted to go whale watching, especially in Baja and Whale Watch Cabo did not disappoint. We went on Easter Sunday with Kara and Miguel.

This is not the least expensive way to see whales in Cabo, but I venture that it is one of the best. We were greeted at the marina by "Laura," a young Spanish woman doing doctoral thesis work on whales. She explained the day's outing, and gave us a run-down of where we would go. The boat was clean and,... More
