I reached out to Laura at Cabo Private Guide because I had been working with another shop, but didn’t feel their service was meeting my needs. From my first interaction with the CPG team, I had a great feeling about the operation. I was frank with Laura about my needs and wishes, and she was equally transparent in finding the balance between accommodating a client’s desires and managing expectations. The result was a set of 8 perfectly tailored dives that culminated in the fulfillment of my number one goal: To dive with the hammerheads at the challenging Gordo Banks sites. To honor one of my initial requests, Laura assigned the same provate guide to me for all three days. Dee as a person is warm, friendly, witty, and entertaining. As a guide, she is an intuitive confidence builder who knows how to get the best dive possible for the client, whatever the diver’s specific goals may be. Diving with Dee allowed me to achieve all my personal objectives while enjoying some of the most beautiful dives I’ve encountered anywhere. In addition, she took the camera on every dive, tirelessly documenting our experiences while I was free to relax and simply take it all in. In addition to provide top-notch diving, Laura and Dee took care of my personal gear each day, both setup and breakdown, and even rinsed, stored, and brought it back to me each day (this was my personal gear, not rental gear I had hired from them, so even more of a courtesy). And when I was very seasick on the final day, they took care of both my kit and me as they would a friend, not just a client. Finally, after having done significant research with other shops, I felt that CPG was most certainly the best value for my money. I am always willing to pay more for better service, but in this case I received this best service at the best value, which is really saying something. I had an amazing experience with this top-notch operation, and although Cabo initially was a third-runner-up choice of vacation due to my favortite dive locations being COVID-closed, I can’t wait to return to my new friends and these beautiful waters.

Thanks Allison! We loved having you and were happy your felt confident with DeAnn - she's one of the most positive and thoughtful dive crew members we have and I knew she would absolutely do above and beyond to accommodate your preferences and show you the best animals! We enjoyed our Gordo Banks exploration dive with you - thanks to you for allowing us to go and explore a different part of the bank for the second dive.

I did two excursions with Cabo Private Guide during my trip to Cabo last week and both were incredible! My first trip was snorkeling in Cabo Pulmo, which I had never heard of before, but snorkeling there was some of the most clear, blue water I'd ever seen! On our way home, my friend and our guide Antonio said "we decided that you're going to come scuba diving with us on Friday". Me - what?! I had never scuba dove before, or even considered it, but doing my first "Discovery Dive" with Antonio was amazing! He taught me everything that a first timer needed to know about diving, took me aside to practice some safety drills, and then we dove and he let me hold his hand THE ENTIRE TIME. It wasn't until about 20 minutes in that I realized I was squeezing the life out of it (poor guy). He was so patient and calm with me as a first time diver, and I felt so safe and secure with him. I would definitely recommend Cabo Private Guide to anyone visiting Cabo, especially if you're a beginner. Make sure that you get Antonio as your guide - he is the best!! I can't wait to go back and dive with them again.

I wanted to do something special for my daughter’s 18th birthday and began looking around. Decided on bringing the family to Cabo...great choice. Then I looked into many different options for entertaining our group during our week in Cabo....and came across this company and owner, Laura. From the initial contact with Laura, I knew we were in good hands. We opted on doing the Sea Lion Snorkel Adventure. Our group of 8 had a blast! Pickup was right on time, our guide Antonio was beyond outstanding! The crew manning the boats were very professional. We snorkeled with the Sea Lions—super fun. One of the sea lion pups was so playful, it even tried nibbling on Antonio’s go pro. The colony of sea lions is amazing! You snorkel into a sea lion “apartment” (small cave) and snorkel through a tunnel/arch...which was fun. We stopped at a beach for lunch....water was very calm and the water was extremely clear with a sandy bottom. Relaxation at its finest. Communication with Laura was prompt and informative. The price for what you get is also an outstanding value! Book with Caboprivateguide and Laura....you will be happy you did!

Thank you Travis! I personally wish I had gone with your group - it sounded amazing. I am so happy your daughter had fun on her birthday, I have kids too and know how important family celbrations are. Glad she enjoyed the cake and free t-shirt! Next time I'll make sure I'm on the boat - but I knew Tonio would impress you! He's been a guide longer than I and loves his job! See you again

I have used several dive companies in the Cabo area over the past few years but Cabo Private Guide was a step above the rest. Laura was always quick to respond to emails from abroad while I was setting up my dive days and Antonio, my guide, was very knowledgeable not only of the marine life in the area but with the local dive sites and history as well. I have dove Cabo Pulmo a couple other times but this was by far my best dives. Antonio put us on top of some reefs that were packed with so much life you felt like you were literally in an aquarium. If you are looking for small dive groups or 1:1 attention then look no further than Cabo Private Guide!!

Thank you for your kind words Brian! I am so happy you picked us and have decided to continue to use us. We are trying to develop a different kind of diving/snorkel experience for those who prefer smaller groups and want to explore more. See you next October!

We had an amazing dive experience with Cabo Private Guide! There were 3 of us traveling/diving together all with varying levels of dive experience. Laura is who we spoke with to set up our tour and she was very helpful and accommodating. On the boat we had Cheke as our Captain, and Felipe was our dive guide. Felipe was amazing! Super friendly and patient. He definitely made our more beginner diver feel comfortable under water, and was great at finding octopus, eels, lobster, etc. that were hiding in the reef. We did 2 tanks, and our first dive was at Pelican Rock which had underwater sand falls and a ridiculous amount of sardines. Super cool to see! The second dive was at Whale Head, and we mostly just drifted with the swell. Had such a great diving experience I tried to book a second dive with them but unfortunately because of Covid, tourism is down and all the dive companies aren’t running tours as frequently, so timing just didn’t work out. But I will definitely dive with them next time I’m in Cabo!

Thank you Tanya! We loved reading your review and I'll pass comments on to Felipe and Cheke of course. Shame about Gordo Banks, but it gives you an excuse to come back and see us!
