We booked a whale watching tour through our resort so we knew we’d be on a licensed boat. We didn’t realize that it was a huge boat with a bar and banos (bathrooms)! We met so many fun people in line as we waited to head down the dock and continued our conversations with them on the boat.

Once on the boat, we were greeted and given a quick lay of the land (boat). They had coffee and pastries and a open bar. Since I don’t really care pastries and had already had my fill of coffee, I opted for the next best breakfast choice- a tequila sunrise!

We headed out of the marina and sailed by Lovers Beach and Los Arcos. As we got further out into the ocean we saw the water splash of a few whales and headed in the direction. So did many other boats and the whales like to be free not surrounded by boats so we didn’t not see them breach. We saw the whales flip their powerful flukes to create a splash and the boat steered closer to them.

Even though we didn’t get to see any whales fully breach, we enjoyed our two hours on the ocean and being that close to a humpback whale is beautiful and powerful.

The staff was amazing!! They were al so attentive and continued to circulate to quickly refill our empty drinks.

Andrew was the MC and kept us informed and entertained! He alone is worth the price of admission.

Please remember to tip the staff - they work hard to keep us safe and we’ll cared for!!

Spent the morning on the Sea of Cortez watching whales! The crew of the Oceanus was friendly and provided excellent customer service. They provided coffee, soft drinks and mixed drinks included with the price of the tour. Croissants were provide as well. The tour provides great photo opportunities of the The Arch. The tour offers optional souvenir group photos for an additional fee. We saw quite few whales!

We were happy we chose Oceanus over other boat options for our whale watching experience in Cabo. The boat was pretty smooth (I tend to get seasick) and was wide and open for viewing. The 9 AM tour also had mostly families and couples so it was nice to not have a "party boat" scene! We didn't get much information on the whales and what we were seeing (we could overhear another boat and the woman was giving a lot more educational info), but it was good and we followed a pair of young humpback whales (we know from overhearing the other boat tour guide) for the couple of hours. Got lots of photos of tails!

We have been to Cabo San Lucas 13, or 14 times. We have been out on several Whale watching tours, sunset tours, party boats, pirate ships etc. We just got back from the best whale watching excursion we have ever been on. I know the chance of seeing whales or not has more to do with luck, than the boat your on, but the captain made a point to drive out farther and stay out longer than time allowed just to make sure we stayed with the whales. We seen some Grey whales early and close to lands end, but then we went farther out into the pacific and seen a few humpbacks that kept jumping over and over. Also seen a few dolphins. Excellent trip, SUPER FREINDLY and informs staff!! I would HIGHLY recommend the Oceanus I!!

The crews were nice, but it stayed shorter than any of the boats around us. While the boat followed whales, we saw only tales. Other boats stayed longer to see entire whales, but our boat turned around. Took only 2 hours. Big boat, so no sea sick. However, I would rather pay more for better whales seeing experience.

Tour was as advertised. This is a relatively large boat for whale watching. Nice aspects include the top deck for better visual sights and the general amenities that come with a larger boat (restrooms, better stability, etc.). Crew was efficient with boarding and good with providing drinks, etc. upon request. We saw some Gray whales and a small pod of Humpback whales, which was a highlight of our day. I wished the tour could have provided a little more information about the whales, and a little less/quieter party music

I've been to Cabo a number of times but this is truly the worst experience that I have ever had cruising. There was a a biker gang on the cruise ship, one of the members accused me of stealing drugs from his bag to start an incident. When I reported the incident to the staff they told me that they were going to call the Marines on me. I asked for the Captain of the ship and they ignored me, even though I told them that me and my wife didn't feel safe on the ship because of what we were accused of doing. I asked the gentleman that told me that he was going to call the marines on me if I could speak to a Manager or a Captain and he just ignored me. I asked another member on the ship about a voice of authority that I I could speak to on the ship and he told me that the biker gang guys were crazy.? I asked what that had to do with me and me and my wife feeling safe and he walked away. I will never get on this cruise liner again. I guess they value the the biker gangs nonsense more than the truth that is coming from patrons which is very weird. There was no one that I could speak to at the end of the cruise and I didn't feel safe on the way back to my resort. This was the worst experience that I have ever had on a cruise ship, it will definitely be the last time I ever do on in Cabo. This experience really makes me feel like never coming back to Cabo.

We got to see a few whales and that part was satisfactory. There was no explanation of feeding habits general history as one normally gets on nature
