reviews of snorkeling, whale or sunset tours?

Anyone have any horns they would like to toot about great tour operators they have used while in cabo? There seem to be so many tours to choose from, and while I'm certain all are good, some may be better than others?

I just got back from Cabo yesterday and wow was it just amazing! We did a little snorkeling down by Lover's Beach and we just found one of the MANY locals that walk around advertising deals. We found a deal for about $20 p/person. We could've stayed out there as long as we wanted. But look around, you might find better deals that take you to various locations because we were pretty much stuck at Lover's Beach until we wanted to leave on a water taxi. Good luck and you will have a blast!

We have enjoyed the Sunderland Sailing ship tour. They do both whale watching and sunset sailings. What we like is that they actually sail the ship rather than just putt around. The whale watching might be almost over but the sunset cruise is very nice. They serve beer and drinks as well as some snacks.

Likes, we have snorkeled with both Pez Gato and Oceanus. Both were fine. The difference in price is generally based on the type of food that they serve while you're out. Some only provide snacks while others serve more of a buffet meal.

We took a snorkle trip to Santa Maria Beach. Lots of fish! Take the morning trip. We were there by 10:00am before there were many people. Water was a little cold, comming from northern Michigan we didn't mind. We took a tour with Panchetta. Our guide was Padro or Peter. He was great. I think it was $35.00 per person. It included beer and pop.

Our guide let us go where ever we wanted. Just not out too far. I am really not good with east and west down there, but we stayed down on the far side of the beach by the massage people and snorkle rental if that helps. We seen lots of fish. We were happy.
