“Whale watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

Went whale watching Jan 19th and it was amazing. Obviously they cannot guarantee that you see whales but we saw at least 2 dozen sightings, including 3 jumping out of the water.

I was vey impressed with how the staff made sure everyone felt ok throughout the trip and tried to make sure that everyone had a good seat.

They had a keen eye on spotting the whales and predicting when they would come out so we would all have our cameras ready.

My only knock is that it came to $70 US per adult.... But it was well worth it.

Overall I was very very impressed.

Thank you for your feedback.

That's the beauty about going whale watching out in the wild. While you are guaranteed to see whales in the zoo, anything goes out there. BUT it is whale watching season so the whales are around. And we thank mother nature and the whales when they give us a spectacular show, like the one that you experienced on our Zodiac Whale Watching Adventure.

We are glad that you appreciated our efforts to ensure that you got a good view of the action during your tour. We hope to show you more wonders of the Sea of Cortez on your next visit!

“EXCELLENT parasailing experience! Thankyou Natanael and Regulo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

My fiance and I had the pleasure of enjoying a FANTASTIC parasailing experience. I have a fear of heights, and my fiance had previously parasailed a few years ago and had a bit of a dodgy experience, however our fears were completely alleviated and we enjoyed probably one of the best things we have ever done! We had captain Natanael and sailor Regulo and they were hilarious! They also went above and beyond to make sure we had a great experience, taking us to see whales, dolphins, sea lions and the famous arch! They took photos, videos and made jokes, and gave us plenty of safety instructions so that we felt completely safe. We have been travelling in the States and down Mexico for almost 6 weeks and have done many activities, but this was by far the best thing we have done! I would highly recommend parasailing with Cabo Expeditions, and hopefully you have the same fantastic gentlemen!

Thank you for your positive feedback!

Nata is the first parasailing captain in Los Cabos and Regulo has a lot of experience working with Nata, so you can be assured that you will always be safe with these guys. And they quite funny, too! They are quite popular with our guests because they make parasailing with Cabo Expeditions a fun AND safe experience.

We are quite lucky to have the Nata-Regulo tandem. Just like with the rest of our guides, they go above and beyond to make sure that you'll have memories to last a lifetime after your tour.

We appreciate your recommendation. We hope to see you again!

We took a cruise to mexico and had a day in Cabo San Lucas, we booked a fishing charter for game fish. After getting to the marina from our cruise ship, Carolina met us and got our day underway. The excursion came with a boxed lunch and soda,s . We wanted beer and the captian of the boat took us to get the nessisary good,s. It was a nice day as we were there in december. We headed out to start the fishing. The fishing started about 20 minutes out and it wasnt to long before we had as fish. We all were suprised that we caught a fish that fast. All in the day we caught 4 fish ,and had a great time, the skipper and the fishing hand were great , took us to realy good spots to find fish, there were five of us and we caught four fish so thats realy good good, This was my first time to game fish , and realy enjoyed this.after we got back to the marina we ha dour catch prepaired and it was great., I recomend to others.

“Could NOT have been a better experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Natanael and Regulo did everything they could to make our parasailing experience the best it could be. The boat and equipment was all in very good condition. The guys were efficient in getting the harneses on and getting people in the air. We were lucky enough to be there during whale season. A few were spotted, so the captain took us for a closer look once everyone was done parasailing. Such a treat and one of the most memorable parts of our vacation. Then they took us near the arch where there was a sealion colony and gave us time to take pictures. It was lovely to not be rushed or feel like they did the bare minimum. They went ABOVE & BEYOND.

We appreciate your review!

Like the rest of our guides, Nata and Regulo love what they do. They don't come to work everyday because it's their job; on the contrary, they go out their because they are passionate about nature and they want to share that passion with the people that they meet.

Because of that, they are always happy to lend a helping hand or to extend your tour in order for you to have a memorable experience in Los Cabos.

Thank you and we hope that you'll join us again!

“WOW !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Whale watching was absolutely amazing and fantastic value for money. Claudio was our guide and made the experince that much more enjoyable.....his passion for what he does and his "mexican whales" comes across loud and clear. This was truly a highlight to our trip.
