I took this boat out for a private group charter. It was just friends, but it was a ton of fun. We brought all of our own drinks and food (cooler on board) to enjoy during the trip. We chartered the boat for 3 plus hours and saw many fish, dolphins, and actually saw whales. The whales were supposed to... More

We went out with Alex and although we knew it was at the very end of the season we were lucky to spend a considerable time with Alex watching a mum and baby. Absolutely amazing. My only regret is that hubby and I were both taking photographs. In hind-sight, as we knew that we would have access to Alex's photos... More

Thank you for joining Alex and the rest of the Whale Watch Cabo Crew to responsibly encounter the amazing Humpback Whales here in Cabo! The end of the yearly season, mid April, does often result in Mother and Baby encounters, something so special to witness as the Baby prepares for the long migration ahead under the watchful eye of Momma....

This was by far the highlight of our Cabo trip and the main reason we wanted to visit. The guide was informative and provided us with 2.5 hours of whales, whales and more whales! I highly recommend this to anyone!

We made the right choice but with Whale Watch Cabo. The certified biologist and the accommodating boat captain made it a great trip. There was nonstop breaching by the juvenile whales. We will definitely use the same operator next time we are in Cabo.

The Humpbacks come to Los Cabos to give birth, and later in the season, the baby Humpbacks can put on quite a show! We are always so pleased to be able to share, while enlightening our Guests to the amazing lives of the wonderful Whales! Thanks for choosing Whale Watch Cabo, wishing you many more amazing encounters, hopefully we will... More

I was very apprehensive about booking a whale watching trip this close to the end of the season, but my first interaction with Peter made me secure in my decision. After I booked online, I received a confirmation with specific details the same day. Once we arrived, the directions on the website led us exactly where we needed to go.... More

A small boat keeps you close to the surface, which makes the close encounters feel even closer. Professional guides: Alexandra Senikas made me feel like she had found her calling in guiding whale tours. We had moments with five males trying to impress a female being the only boat watching their amazing surface activities. When can I go again?! They... More

There are many different approaches to Whale watching, it is great to hear that you enjoyed our version. Whale Watch Cabo uses small boats, we are allowed closer to (without disturbing) the Whales, our smaller boats also interfere sonically less with the whales, ensuring a more natural encounter and a better chance to see their natural behaviours. We also know... More

We recently booked the 1130 Whale Watch tour with Alexandria and Santos. Though it was late in the season (Apr 1), we were ecstatic with the whales we saw. Alex was simply amazing. She was as excited as we were to see the mother humpback and baby playing, breaching, tail flapping, and putting on a show for us all. We... More

Highly recommend this company! We booked this tour in lieu of a ship excursion while on a cruise. Tour guides are marine biologists with lots of knowledge about whales. We happened to hear a whale singing, stopped the engines and just listened to its song. Soon another whale came along and swam under and around us for at least 15... More

We lucked out and saw a huge humpback whale breaching again and again. The boat was clean and even had a canopy for shade. They offered us water and gave us lifejackets, of course. We paid in cash and received a 20% discount. The captain was protective and steered us to calmer waters after awhile and the marine biologist who... More

Thanks for the lovely review, and the understanding of how special it is to see a magnificent Humpback Whale repeatedly breaching. While we have an over 99% success rate since our first tour in sighting Whales, we cannot predict behaviours and appreciate the Guests who understand how special getting to see some of these amazing physical feats truly are.

It has long been my dream for my wife to see whales in "their" natural element. We booked this tour in advance of our recent stay in Cabo. The crew was awesome in both attitude and effort made to locate whales. As we were nearing the end of this season, there weren't as many whales, but when we found them... More
