We had a wonderful afternoon at sea with Omar and Johnny in mid-February. To everyone's delight, we came very close to a humpback whale and her calf, got within camera range of 6 to 10 orcas (what a sight!!) and spent some time in the midst of hundred of dolphins. We highly recommend him -- his skill and quiet confidence... More

The boat trip with Omar proved to be an absolute highlight of our stay in Mexico. He's a great guide- absolutely committed to making the experience special, enthusiastic, with excellent English and extremely knowledgeable about the marine life we encountered. We saw a humpback whale and her calf, sting rays and a sail fish in addition to swimming with turtles... More

Omar and Johnny were the perfect hosts on our recent trip. Got to see tons (literally) of spotted dolphins, sea turtles and even a couple of whales of which we followed one of the for about an hour. Would highly recommend this trip.

Omar is great, speaks good English knows a lot about fishes, he lets you swim with the dolphins and when we were having hard time finding whales he was constantly on his phone coordinating with the other fishermen ( you got to love technology) about where the whale was last seen and where it was headed. And we got it!... More

Saw turtles, dolphines and whales. During the trip we could swim to hear the dolphins and could touch a turtle. Nice staff. Great tour!

Omar was recommended to us as the best guide in the area for viewing dolphins. And he delivered all of the above and more. Being over 6' tall and over 200# meant that I had to sit at the front of the boat as ballast which was unfortunate as I missed a lot of the commentary as the noise from... More

Johnny, one of Omar's associates approached us on the beach to sell us a whale/dolphin/sea turtle watching tour. Just like most other hawkers, we politely declined his offer but accepted his business card. Later that day, out of curiosity, we looked him up on Trip Advisor to find that he was the most respected fishing/whale watching tour operator in Escondido.... More

Fished with Omar and Israel numerous times over the last few years. They are very knowledgeable about the fish, their habitat and techniques used to catch them. We have caught sailfish, dorado, bonita, jacks, and a blue marlin with them. They work hard and are very professional. While fishing we also have seen a lot of marine life. Dolphins, whales,...

It was a great experience ... We got lucky and saw a whale, but even better a group of 300 Dolphins. Made my day! The Guide was brilliant by the way
