We had a great time with Alonzo at the helm and Lisa explaining what we were seeing. We saw several Humpback whales on our trip and the babies were 'breeching'. Lisa was so knowledgeable and welcomed our questions.

We used Cabo Routes and I believe it was $15/person round trip. We had a good experience with them although did have to stop and pick up one other couple at a different resort. Still recommend.
