Snorkel with whale sharks nearby in the Sea of Cortez
Seasonal tour available November–April
Includes towel, wetsuit, and lunch
Hotel transport provided from Los Cabos to La Paz
What to expect
Depart from your Los Cabos hotel in a plush, air-conditioned minivan and sit back during the scenic journey to La Paz; admire the undulating dunes and picturesque plains of the Baja California Sur desert.  Arrive at La Paz, and don your professional wetsuit and snorkeling gear. Sail over the shimmering surface of the Sea of Cortez until you reach the natural habitat of the whale sharks. It won’t be hard to spot the enormous animals, whose size compares directly to a yellow school bus; however, don’t fear the 40-foot (12-meter) stature as whale sharks are considered the sea’s most gentle giants. Submerge yourself in the warm water with a supervised guide, and then marvel at the whale shark’s agile elegance in spite of their size. Follow the direction of your guide as you swim the waters near the natural habitat. Climb back on board for a refreshing rest and observe the water for manta rays, dolphins, and even humpback whales. Next, venture to the stylish Malecon, a blissful beachfront boardwalk, to pleasure your palate with crunchy tacos, refreshing soft drinks, and tangy tequila. Revitalized, stroll and enjoy the bespoke boutiques of the beach before setting out to explore the traditional town of Todos Santos. Visit the popular Hotel California, famed for its potential inspiration of the Eagle’s classic hit, and then return to your minivan for the relaxing journey back to Los Cabos.

Scam
Mar 2021 • Friends
I used to have nothing but good things to say about this company because I had done their zip lining tour in Puerto Vallarta. However, in Cabo they canceled our excursion due to weather. They charged me on March 25, 2021 and I have been trying to get a refund ever since. I have in total spent over 2 hours on the phone trying to get a hold of somebody to give me a refund. Each time I call they tell me it’s 90 days to receive a refund, or it’s coming in a couple weeks and recently they told me it would come Thursday or Friday. They told me there is no way they can expedite it more quickly when I talk to them last week they told me that it would be in my account Thursday or Friday. I still have not received my money and I feel that this is a scam because I called my bank to dispute the charges and they told me that it is now over 90 days and there’s nothing they can do. I am very upset and don’t recommend a company that takes this long to get money back to people for their cancellations. Not to mention all the staff that I spoke to was rude and short with me. This isn’t just a hundred bucks either they owe me $402!!!!! This is robbery.

Still waiting on a refund, 2 months later
Mar 2021
I paid for this tour, canceled well within the 48 hours required for a full refund, due to my plane being grounded in a snow storm, and 2 months later, I am still waiting for my $800.00 refund, to no avail. I keep getting put off by email, text and phone and told it takes 60 days for a refund.

Don't book ahead, you can get this tour for 30% cheaper once you get to Cabo through outside vendors .

Experience you will not forget. Will put a smile on your face and heart!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Experience of a lifetime. Would give it 12 stars if possible. Dropping in right next to a huge Whale Shark and swimming next to her till we got tired was humbling to say the least. The way our "team" Oliver, Mario and Gil worked together was so professional. Oliver is a gift. So knowledgeable. His passion for the sea is reflected in his kind, fun, caring attitude towards life...and us! Mario the boat captain was equally committed. His handling of the boat and his obvious concern for our safety and comfort was reflected in the way he kept his boat. Top shelf.
The whole experience from checking in to being returned to our resort left a huge smile on our faces.
Go just go.....

Bucket list ✔️ for sure
We came to Cabo specifically to do thia on my 50th bday! My friends didn't know what whale sharks were and we all had an amazing time! Even my husband who stayed in the boat enjoyed it. I was very comfortable in the water with these giant babies but it was still a but I'm not going to lie, their size was intimidating. Our guide Joe and captain Christian were spectacular! Joe made sure everyone got the experience to their own comfort level. I stayed on the boat the last dive to allow one of our group to get up close to a 15' baby. It was still exciting seeing them feeding at the surface of the water front the boat! A must do!

Swam with a 24 foot shark
Feb 2021 • Couples
Well I can check that one off the list! I SWAM WITH A 24 FOOT SHARK!!! Holly cow was that awesome! They are so big and beautiful! We were also so privileged to see a massive school of cow nosed rays. There were thousands of them! What a jaw dropping experience. Oliver was out guide and Mario was the the captain. Sadly I forget our drivers name, but I made I back alive to post this review, so he deserves credit too! The only thing I didn’t like was the fact the water was soooooo cold! 70° is pretty shocking to jump into. I lost all breath, my heart screamed out of my chest, my wiener Q’s just like a turtle head and damn it, my legs cramped, but I swam with a whale shark!!! I would 1000% do it again and if the waters colder, well oh well for me!! Highly highly recommended.

Everything You Need To Swim With Whale Sharks Safely
We booked Cabo Adventures for our whale shark tour through our hotel. We were picked up at 0650 on Wednesday by a van driven by a very friendly driver who drove us into Cabo where we transferred to the tour bus. Use the bathroom at the transfer spot because they will only stop for you on the way there if you really have to go. The goal is just to get there.

We checked in at the Cabo Adventures in downtown Cabo where tours are clearly marked by groups. Our guide then came to get us and we were off for the 2 hour bus ride to La Paz. Our tour guide Oliver was on the bus with us and explained everything that was going to happen and what the expectations were. He introduced the driver who was awesome and another exceptional tour guide. There were 11 or 12 tourists on the tour bus that day which were broken up into groups of only 2 or 3 when we got to our respective boats. The drive to La Paz took about 2 hours. I think we got there around 1030am. This company provides everything in with the price including towels, wetsuit, life jacket, snorkeling gear and food and water!! ( but still clarify when you book it cause it might change). I was impressed with Oliver’s communication skills as he explained everything in detail about the Whale sharks and the dive while we were on the tour bus driving there. You can look but no touching.

Once we got there we immediately met our boat guide Joe and boat Captain Christian and we just got on the boat. We started off into the bay to check in with an on-water checkpoint that controls how many boats can look for whale sharks at a time. It is best to not mess around when you arrive to La Paz. Time is of the essence so you can get into the boat and get to the whale sharks. After clearance from the checkpoint, the search begins. Once the guide and captain find the Whale shark, you are expected to be ready to have your fins on and jump into the water. The water is not deep. It probably was 15 feet deep. If you are not a strong swimmer or are scared just tell them and they totally watch out for you. I was so impressed with how attentive and kind Joe was. He was in the water right next to me the whole time and was managing to pay attention to me and the Whale shark and tape me on his Go Pro for video and pics which can be bought afterwards on the bus ride back. Very well organized group and I felt very safe which is super important. The water is a little murky but there is no seaweed or rocks or anything in the way of seeing these gentle giants. Before the bus ride back we ate a lunch of fish tacos on the bay which were included in the cost.
Halfway through the bus ride back we stopped at a small garden/farm shop that sold fresh organic food and coffee ( if you want stuff from this place, it is not included in cost of tour just FYI). They also had clean bathrooms.
After our 10 min coffee/ bathroom break, we got back on the bus and it took about another hour to get back to Cabo. We arrived back at our hotel around 530pm.
I trust Cabo Adventures based on my experience with this trip. We will use their company as our tour guides for other activities because they have proven themselves to be safe, attentive, personable, communicative, very knowledgeable and aware.
