“great guides for whale watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have gone out three different years to see the whales with Cabo Expeditions, each time with excellent results. The first year we happened on to a mother whale teaching its thousand pound baby how to breach, among other things. The mother breached at least 8 times while we watched. The baby, practicing, breached at least 20 times - and counting! He obviously loved it. We finally had to leave them with the baby still breaching to get back to port. This year we saw many, many spectacular breaches by several whales. Our guides, in both years, seemed to be the ones who found the good whales to watch. The other boat tours followed us. The guides seem to be special, maybe very experienced or well trained. Our consistently outstanding experiences with Expeditions moved me to write this very strong recommendation.

Thank you so much for your very strong recommendation. We are touched---because you took the time to write a review, and also because your comments validate our unwavering efforts to consistently give an excellent experience to our guests.

Throughout the years that we have been in operation, we have seen spectacular shows from the whales, and have had amazing encounters with them. We have also experienced days when the whales were a little harder to find, or occasions when they preferred to just relax in the water. Regardless, we learn something new about the whales everyday, and we apply those learnings on our whale watching tour.

We are proud to say that our guides do know how and where to find the whales. That comes from knowledge acquired over the years and experience gained from over 15 years of being in the whale watching business.

Cheers to another wonderful whale watching season in Los Cabos!

“Great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

We did 2 trips with them, a kayak adventure and parasailing. Both times we had very friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful, courteous, and seemed genuinely having fun.

A special thank you/Kudo's to our guide/captain Natanael and Regulo who were with us for Parasailing. If you haven't gone parasailing, you must try it. It was very safe, and the experience is like flying - quiet, calm, you don't go in the water (land and take off from the boat), and the most disappointing thing was it had to end! After our parasailing adventure, we were headed back to the marina when the Captain spotted whales breaching - we turned around and headed for the area and spent around 10-15 minutes maybe 50 yards from a pair of whales who breached about a dozen times! They didn't have to do this - we (and they) were excited to see something like this up close. They were respectful of the distance and turned off the motor (despite other boats that didn't). It was the highlight of our trip!!! Our other experience on the snorkel trip was wonderful as well.

Thank you for your very nice comments. It was a pleasure showing you the beauty of this region from the air, as well as from the surface and below. You chose a good combination of tours!

Some guests feel an initial trepidation when they do the parasailing tour. It quickly disappears once they are airborne and they see how safe it actually is. And you are in good hands with Nata and Regulo---not only do they ensure your safety on the tour, but they also know how to show you a great time.

Seeing whales could be an added bonus when you do the parasailing tour during whale watching season. We're so glad that you were able to spot them and spend some time with them just before your tour ended.

Our captains, guides and staff always try to go out of their way to give you a wonderful experience. We feel proud and honored when we read reviews such as yours because we know that we have exceeded your expectations.

Please join us again on your next visit!

“Up close and personal whale watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Our guide found two pods of whales and got us close enough to hear the expulsion of air and feel the splash of the tails. Wonderful to see these giants of the sea so close! We can definitely recommend this outfit.

It's great that you had such a marvelous experience on your Zodiac Whale Watching Adventure. Our zodiac boats allow us to get close to these majestic animals because the engines do not bother them as much as the ones on bigger boats. And, when the day is calm and the sea is flat, we are able to hear them and feel their movements from our whale watching spot.

Thank you for recommending Cabo Expeditions. We hope that you'll come back for another adventure with us.

“Experience we will never forget!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

First time parasailing, had a blast! Thank you Nathaniel and Reggie! We really enjoyed the time out in the boat and up in the air. Still cannot believe that the whales were all around us and that Reggie caught such an amazing photo of a humpback breaching beneath us! Will use your company again next time we visit! Great door to door service from our hotel to the boat and back. We felt safe and had plenty f time to enjoy the scenery and the ride! I love that you took so many pictures for us with my own camera without charging extra for that! Thank you!

Thank you for making us part of your first parasailing experience. Stories like yours are what make each day different, even after over 15 years of running tours in Los Cabos. It never gets boring for us!

Nata and Reggie are very popular among our guests because they are genuinely nice guys. They do their best to ensure that you have lots of fun on your parasailing tour without sacrificing your safety, which is always our top priority.

And what a great bonus to see the whales and capture them on camera just at the right moment!

We are looking forward to your next visit.

“Fantastic Parasailing Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

We had our first parasailing experience with Reggie and Nathan. We were comfortable with them from the start. They made us feel safe and didn't scare us at all. They were very friendly and took lots of pictures for us. After our amazing parasail, we went by the Arch and Lovers Beach. Well worth the experience!
