“Seeing whale sharks in the sea of Cortez is like nothing else. Truly amazing!”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We started out a bit slow as we got in the van of the wrong operation. Totally our fault! The different tour ops. often meet guests at Mega, a large supermarket and obvious landmark. We got into the wrong van because our name is Roberts and so was another person. Double check the full name before going along. Once we got in the right vehicle, we we're on our way to la Paz. Prepare yourself for a longish drive, 2 hours, before arriving at your destination. Our guide was with us the whole time, a local that lives in San Jose cabo but grew up in la Paz. He was great. Once we checked flipper and wet suit sizes, we we're off to the boat directly across the street from their office. For some reason we expected a large boat with other guests on our trip but it was just us, family of 8, our guide and the boat captain. The boat felt small but we learned that all are small on purpose so as not to disturb the whale sharks and so we can get in and out of the water quickly and quietly.it did not take more that 30 minutes before we saw our first whale shark. Groups of no more than 6 for 15 minutes at a time can get in the water with each shark. They were juveniles about 16 ft long. Amazing! You swim right next to them! When they are feeding, they hang out in one spot where you can swim all around them. We were only 1-2 ft away. It was a truly incredible experience. In all, we we're out and in the water 6 at a time for about 2 hours. Our guide took underwater footage on his little camera which he shared with us for free. Afterwards, we had a lovely, traditional Mexican lunch that was included in our trip. Then drive home.
I would highly recommend this trip. All levels of swimming/snorkeling/diving experience we in our group and it was very easy snorkeling because the sharks are feeding. Enjoy!

“Captain Natanael and Regulo”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We went para-sailing with Captain Natanael and Regulo and had a blast! The weather was a little overcast, but we all had a great time. We would definitely do this again with the best crew Cabo has to offer.

“swimming with whale sharks”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

i had no idea how close we'd be able to get to these guys! honestly we were a bit disappointed at first, it seemed like kind of a low budget operation - but the experience totally blew us away. it was the highlight of our trip, hands down. our guide, alberto, was super knowledgeable and clearly loves the work and the animals.

“Whale Watching...incredible!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We just returned from Cabo last Sunday for the fifth time in so may years. Cabo Expeditions as usual, exceeded our expectaions.
This time, it was whale watching. Carolina and Alejandra were (as always) kind and professional. Always greeted with a smile and a warm feeling. Carolina made sure we were informed of what to watch for, how to stay safe and comfortable on the Zodiac and to hold on!!! :)
Claudio, our captain, was amazing. We took off, anxiously awaiting a whale sighting, when we saw the mist from a whale in the distance. Off we went....chasing down the whales just to have them go under again. We waited for awhile for them to surface, while Claudio explained the mating habits of the humpback whales and how they swin in a straigh line. A few minutes later, we saw more.....off we went again, finding a few whales and we were able to get some great tail pictures. A few minutes later, we feel upon a pod of SEVEN whales. The were about 100 ft from our zodiac. One came so close, we could hear the huge lungs fill with air as he surfaced. AMAZING!!! We highly recommed this excursion. We can't wait until we visit Cabo again!!

Thank you for your kind words!

We loved having you back for a visit and we enjoyed introducing you to more wonders of the Sea of Cortez. Baja California Sur always has something new and special to show us. Even for guests who come back to Los Cabos year after year for the whales, they still get awed by what they experience each time. That's just how it is with nature - very year and every day is different.

We're very happy to hear that we have exceeded your expectations yet again. On behalf of Carolina, Alejandra, Claudio and the rest of the team, THANK YOU! Till next time!

“Parasailing!!!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

We had so much fun parasailing with Natanael and Regulo in Cabo San Lucas. They took so many beautiful photos of us with our camera while we were up in the sky. On the speedboat back to shore the guys fed a sea lion up close which was an amazing sight. We would do it again for sure. :-)

Nata and Regulo will be gratified to learn that you enjoyed your parasailing experience with them. Your feedback is what motivates our team to do our best, and be even better each time.

Next time you will be able to take photos of yourselves with our special wide angle camera. Those shots of you flying over Land's End will be unique for sure!
