We went to watch whales in this 4 hour tour that ended up being 6 hour long. If you are not un a hurry youll have a relaxing time looking for whales and a great view of them. If you are in a tight schedule be sure of letting the boat captain beforehand. Overall it was a good tour with... More

We did the tour twice and I reverend it to anyone going there. The first day we saw over 100 whales but not came close enough to be pet. The second day we had a mother and her baby by the boat for 2 hours. The tour guide was knowledgeable and very nice. The boats a good. A unique experience.

Friendly, fun and a feeling of safely. The orientation before the trip explained a lot. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the habitat of the whales. The panga boat captain knew where the whales would show themselves and was able to make sure that the group had a great experience. Thank you Mario's.

Cynthia was our guide and she was absolutely fantastic. She did everything possible to make our tour a success and it was. She has named one mother whale Juanita and her baby Jaunie because the mother brings her baby to Cynthia's boat to show it off and while she is there you get a chance to pet the baby whale.... More

The only reason to travel to Guerrero Negro is to see the whale breeding grounds during February, +/- one month. I used Mario's Tour, reserved by a hotel up the street. Mario's is located about 2-3 km south of the border of Baja Sur with Baja North. I signed up for the early morning tour, that roughly lasts from 8... More

Chose this company based on its reviews though there are many to choose from. My wife and I opted for the 11:00 a.m. tour, were picked up at our hotel and got on board a panga at the lagoon with three other people. The captain was friendly and knew what he was doing. While careful to not approach the whales... More

Mario's Tours is hands down the best whale watching outfit in Guerrero Negro. From reservations (and prompt response) to pick up and drop off, I love these folks. We always stay in GN on our way down to San Ignacio Lagoon and make it a point to get in a whale watching trip with Mario's Tours on the way down... More
