We oringinally were scheduled to go out on an afternoon tour 3/10/20, they contacted us that morning to reschedule for the following day same time due to windy weather, they also rescheduled our transportaion for us as well. We arrived the following afternoon at the office and checked in. We had an awesome experience and since the pictures are included with your trip (other companies charge extra for this) you can enjoy your experience rather than worrying about catching that perfect shot. Very knowledgable staff makes for a informative experince. I would highly recommend this company.

We all know ever tour experience can be different from day to day. This was our third time using Whale Watch Cabo for our whale watching tours. Amazing as always. The staff and tour guides are knowledgeable, professional, with great educational attention given during the tours. Our last tour was in March 2020, and I thought there was now way it could compare to our last trip, Dec. 2018. It was another great experience. A first for us to see baby whales learning to play and breach with their moms by their sides. Whale Watch Cabo never disappoints. A HUGE perk is that the tour guide is also your photographer, this allows you to relax and enjoy the views of the whales. Your photos are sent to you via e-mail within 48 hours, most times. Can't wait for our next experience with you guys.

This company uses biologists as their guides. Maria was ours. The Captain of the boat, Hector, along with Maria gave us an exciting and active tour. They knew just where to go. We were lucky enough to spot and follow 4 different mothers and their calves, in less than 3 hours. Wow!!!! They are very protective and respectful of all the marine life. Our group even got to be the boat who alerted a special team who does the dangerous job of cutting whales out of old nets. The story was on the news the next day. It was a great afternoon! Maria and Hector made it better with their knowledge, compassion and personalities. If I go back to Cabo, there is no doubt I will go out with them again.

The first word that comes to mind for our Whale Watch Cabo experience is:quality. We'd booked an afternoon tour, but when we arrived we were told that the wind was too blustery to enjoyably view the whales. Rebooking was easy and in minutes we were set up for the next morning's first tour. I am so grateful that they refused to take us out in sub-par conditions and instead rescheduled us for what ended up being a highlight of our trip to Los Cabos! The next morning we headed out with our guide Lisa and Captain Victor. Lisa did a great job of setting expectations as it was near the close of the whale watching season, but then she and Victor blew those expectations out of the water as we marveled at breaching humpbacks! It was breathtaking and I was impressed with how much we got to see while also staying a respectful and safe distance away. Lisa had answers to all of our questions and I really felt like I learned so much during the tour. We got so good at spotting whales that for the rest of our trip we were able to easily spot humpbacks from our beach chairs! Throughout the tour, Lisa took what I felt were professional-level photos of the sights & wildlife for the guests and emailed a dropbox link with all of the photos to us. This was a huge bonus as it freed us up to just sit back and be fully present for the experience without worrying about snapping pictures. It was just so clear to me that Lisa, Victor, and the Whale Watch Cabo team take pride in making this a top-quality experience for their guests as well as a highly ethical and responsible tour. I would highly recommend you book with them and I would go out on the water with them again!

Great company. Boat was not crowded. the guide was super knowledgeable. The company is sustainable and licensed for whale watching (unlike many boats out there) and treated the whales with respect. And we saw tons of whales breaching. Great fun!
