Loved this whale watching tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about the whales. We were a group of 12 from the cruise ship and had our own private tour. We did have a little difficulty finding the meeting location, but after that all was good. We saw numerous whale tails, I was hoping for a breaching whale but... More

Here's the deal: if you go to Cabo during whale season, you're probably going to see whales. No matter where we went to watch these magnificent creatures, there were other boats around us. But it gave me a chance to see what other outfitters had to offer. Whale Watch Cabo is a fantastic group. The boat was clean and felt... More

Loved WWC and its staff. Very informative, professional, friendly, and fun. Good environmental ethics. Captain Alonzo and naturalist Lisa were fantastic. In mid-January 2017, we saw a whole bunch of traveling, feeding, and diving humpbacks. I would recommend WWC and no one else.

We had a great time whale watching on Saturday morning. We saw numerous whales and even a female trying to fend off two courting males. Amazing. The guide said he was a marine biologist that was very knowledgeable about the whales and many other facts about the environment. I had heard that every whale watching company says they are marine...

So we booked with this company and we were a little hesitant when the guide a marine biologist did not show my wife a picture of a boat. The Boat had a shade canopy and was fine, however the pacific ocean was very rough. They do have Zodiacs and I would not recommend that for anyone with back or sea... More

Great time, great info from Captain Bernardo, knowledgable, considerate of the people in the boat. He seemed to know where the whales would come up next. Saw a total of 10 whales, the most I have ever seen on my many whale watching excursions.

Best whale watching trip I have ever had. The driver and Biologist Paolao? were great but we simply got lucky and the whales were very active. We saw maybe a dozen breaches one so close it didnt fit into my camera screen. We saw whales doing every trick in the book in fact they put on a show for maybe... More

Three adults and a four-year old all had an amazing time on a 12 pm whale watching tour. The guide was informative and answered our many, many questions. We saw four humpback whales and were treated to many, many breaches, tail flapping, flipper flapping, and diving. The operators are very respectful of the whales and they take many photos and...

Great day whale watching and cruising the pacific on their high-speed boats. You truly move from whale location to whale location very quickly if they want to and you get quite close to the whales. Our Capt was very skilled and provided a safe ride for all. Our guide (Otto) was fun and entertaining! Boating to and from the whale... More
