This is our second trip with this company and we will never go anywhere else. There is a marine biologist on board who is very informative. Our marine biologist was Lisa- I think she was more excited about our experience than any of the other people! She was great, provided so much information and it was clear she has a... More

My outing with WWC was by far one of the coolest things I've ever done! Their service is fantastic and the booking was very easy. I was given a "heads up" email the night before saying that the weather might cause a cancellation for my morning excursion, which was nice to be prepared. It was indeed cancelled (thankfully! the water... More

Tour guide/Marine biologist, Nacho, gave us a whale watching adventure that will not be forgotten. Whale Watch Cabo is very aware of the needs and care of the whales. With a 6th sense, Captain Santos found various whales with uncanny accuracy. We flew on the tops of the waves to reach the whales. This was quite the adventure.

We had a wonderful experience with Whale Watch Cabo, The boat was fast and scooted from one pod of whales to another. The captain was careful not to stress the whales. Each boat has a marine biologist who is very informative about the whales. They take pictures of your journey and share them by email. This is a real bonus... More

We saw almost no whales. You can't schedule whales. They tend not to accept Evites or Outlook meeting invitations. We saw a few "butts and backs" as our guide put it. Because of this, the company offered to reschedule us on another tour, free of charge. We were leaving the next morning, so could not accept the offer, but still... More

Thank you for being so understanding. While it is rare that our guests are not treated to multiple sightings of whales up close, but we really appreciate guests like you that understand we cannot control the weather or whales. Very good advice on preparing for the trip too - better to bring a light jacket and not need it than... More

Very impressed with this tour. We chose to go out in the Zodiac and I highly recommend it. Nacho was our guide and also a marine biologist. He shared his knowledge of the whales and was also very knowledgeable about the area. We had a great time and will definitely chose to go on another whale watch with this group... More

The whale watching trip with WWC was such an awesome experience and our guide Nacho(sp?), being marine biologist, was a wealth of knowledge. We were able to locate and watch a mama and baby playing.... The baby breached multiple times! One of the highlights of my life! You will not be disappointed 😊
