Mario's Tours is hands down the best whale watching outfit in Guerrero Negro. From reservations (and prompt response) to pick up and drop off, I love these folks. We always stay in GN on our way down to San Ignacio Lagoon and make it a point to get in a whale watching trip with Mario's Tours on the way down... More

The highlight of this whale watching expedition was for me, funnily enough, the drive out over the salt flats, past the factory with its large mountain of glistening white salt, and beyond out onto a long sand isthmus. On the way we passed many osprey nests, often with ospreys on top. The boat captains were bilingual, the bay full of... More

I am still in awe....I am not sure I can write a review. It was an awesome, humbling & wonderful experience! We took a panga to see the Gray Whales and ended up with memories that will last a lifetime. Our panga guide was Teto and although he did not speak much english, he was fantatic. We all got to...
