“Sunrider-Whale Shark Adventure”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

This trip was the highlight of our vacation. The tourist season was winding down when we went and it turned out that my husband and I were the only two to sign up for that day. Sunrider could've cancelled, but instead, we were treated to what amounted to a private tour. We were picked up at our hotel (Solmar) by our exceptional guide and driver, Alberto. Alberto was fun, knowledgeable, courteous, and a joy to be with all day. Our first stop was in Todos Santos where we heard about its history and legends. Then it was off to the Hotel California where we took a little tour of the property, and had a delicious breakfast. We continued on our way to LaPaz with narration about the area, the economy, while we enjoyed watching the countryside pass by our window in our very comfortable ride.
When we reached LaPaz, we went directly to the new office where we changed into swimsuits, picked up wetsuits and snorkel gear and headed for our adventure on the new "Funrider". This boat included a canopy for protection, a "head", freshwater shower, and Sergio the guide and Sergio the captain. Both were fabulous at their jobs. We found a whale shark immediately and got into the water (very easy, just slid off the back deck, just as easy to climb in with steps). The main thrill, of course, was to swim with this gentle giant for as long and as many times as we wanted because we were the only two on the tour. Our whale shark was a marvel in size and gentleness and I swam eye to eye with him for as long as I could before tiring and heading back to the boat. We ended our tour by boating along the coast with narration of the area by Sergio the guide.
Alberto was at the office to meet us and we changed and left to go to our lunch. Alberto took us to "Bismark" and translated for us and helped us choose a delicious lunch. We first had an appetizer of fresh fish that had a light fried crust (so flaky and fresh they almost melted in your mouth). Then Alberto helped us choose the fish tacos which were served tostada style if you had been here in the US. What a fantastic choice, I'll never be able to order them again without thinking of the Bismark, nor do I think they'll ever be as good as the Bismark.
We headed home from this incredible adventure and Alberto stopped again at the Hotel California for us to pick up a couple of souvenirs. Again, not enough can be said about Alberto's attentiveness and concern for our time. We ended back at our hotel right on time (total trip from Cabo and back was 8 hours). Would we spend that kind of time again going to LaPaz-ABSOLUTELY. Would we recommend or use Sunrider tours again-POSITIVELY.
Sincerely, Pancho and Maria.

“Simply awesome”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

We have gone on several whale watching tours in the 5 years we have been going to Cabo, and they are the best. The luncheon is fabulous, and the crew is fun and knowledgable. We even got to stay out an extra 1/2 hour!

“Sunset Dinner Cruise & Whale Watching”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Nice cruise out to the Arch, then off to find whales. Pretty easy, when one jumps about a dozen boats would race over to get close. Dinner buffet was good, not great. They have an open bar and make a dance floor on the front deck on the ride home. Good service and entertainment by the crew. Boat also has Wi-Fi if you want to post you whale pics real-time. Crew takes several pics during the cruise and puts together a nice photo spread for purchase at the end of the cruise. ($25) Overall, the wife and I had a great time. Boat was very clean with large and clean restrooms below the deck.

“Sunset Dinner Cruise - Pay a little extra and enjoy fresh grilled lobster!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

The two-tiered boat was clean and very comfortable. The crew was friendly and helpful and the open bar included blended drinks like Pina Coladas. We saw whales in the Sea of Cortez while we enjoyed a delicious Mexican buffet. Pay the extra $10 for the lobster; it was grilled on the boat and was great! At the end of the cruise, we watched the sun drop over the Pacific Ocean; spectacular sunset! I'm not sure if we were on a typical cruise, but it was mostly adults and not a bunch of boozing college kids...and that was fine with us!

“Saw Whales!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Excellent tour out of Cabo San Lucas. Tour was on a multi level catamaran (SunRider 100). The tour host was great. The captain did a great job of positioning the boat. Onboard brunch was excellent.

And best of all we saw whales!
