Had an excellent experience with them. Saw many whales with calves. Be sure to book with a certified company that is licensed to do this as they are. They respect the waters in which these whales call home for the winter. Very knowledgable and give you lots of information about these beautiful creatures. Also remember that nature does dictate when and where the whales will appear. They take time to show you the Lands End formations which is very impressive closeup! Well worth the money and time. Don't go to Cabo San Lucas and miss this opportunity.

Here at Whale Watch Cabo, we feel that it is our Staff of dedicated Marine Biologist Guides that makes the real difference in what we offer our Guests.
We are very proud of their work, ethics to responsible whale watching encounters and efforts to ensure that each tour is personal, fun and informative.
We all hope to inspire our guests to a greater understanding of the amazing lives of the whales, and our staff's passion can be very contagious.

We went out in the afternoon on two boats, one with Liria and one with Abby. Lots of whales, and the guides were very knowledgeable. They took lots of pix, so we were able to enjoy the experience rather than feel like we had to take pix. The boats were just the right size, big enough to be stable, but small enough to get up close and personal with the whales without disturbing them. Having the canvas tops made a big difference on a sunny day. Our family ranged from 18 months to 90 years and all were made welcome and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Oh, and there are clean bathrooms and a little store right out on the dock, so no worries.

Could not be more impressed with Whale Watch Cabo, from beginning to end this company was top notch. Lihra was a great tour guide and you could tell that she absolutely loved her job. She was so knowledgeable about the wildlife and whales. There wasn't a question she couldn't answer! We saw so many whales on the day of our tour- they were very active. Got a private boat tour since there were 8 of us which was an awesome idea- so if you have more than 6 people its actually a better value. Lihra also sent us a link of all the photos she took on the boat so we would have some "professional" photos of the day. Highly recommend!

Thanks for the high praise! Our Biologist Guide Liria reflects our ideal of knowledgeable, experienced and friendly Guides who are passionate about the Whales, Dolphins and other Marine Life we encounter here in Cabo San Lucas.
Whale Watch Cabo offers very reasonably priced Private Boat Whale Watching Tours. Perfect for small to medium sized groups, this allows our Guests for a more personalized experience.
We are the smallest company (and the only dedicated Whale Watch Company) in Cabo San Lucas that offers whale watching tours.
This is by design, so that we can make each tour something special, personal and show each of our Guests a wonderful experience.
Thanks again for sharing your Private Boat Whale Watching Tour with Whale Watch Cabo and Liria. Wishing you many more wonderful whale encounters in the future.

This is a wonderful company and we can't say enough good things about it. We had three outings during our visit and each was a great experience. The best part is that they are VERY conscientious of the whales and their safety. The guides are all marine biologists who provide excellent information during the trip. The other bonus is that the guides take lots of photos so you are free to just enjoy the whales and the ride. Afterwards, you are sent a link to the pictures and can download for free.

Unfortunately there are many companies and "water taxis" that do not respect the wildlife and dangerously chase and invade the space of the whales risking their safety and that of the boat passengers. Until the local authorities do something about it, please make sure whatever whale watch service you choose is committed to responsible tourism - this particular company certainly is and is doing a great job!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with Whale Watch Cabo and our staff of Biologist Guides. WWC is uniquely the only dedicated Whale Watch Company in Los Cabos and the smallest company operating whale watching tours in Cabo.
We follow a strict Code of Conduct when encountering the whales. This often results in longer encounters, allowing our Guests to see more natural behaviors - it also means that when you join a WWC tour, you can be assured that we are not negatively impacting the whales - something we know our conscientious Guests all really appreciate.
You make a very good point about the conditions that exist here in Cabo in regards to how some operators manage their vessels around the Whales. We hope that we can lead by example and have other tour operators join in responsibly following the Code of Conduct to the benefit of the Whales and the appreciation of their Guests.
Thanks for joining us for your 3 tours here in Cabo.
One point I would like to make, if you are coming all the way to Cabo to see the Whales, book at least 2 tours. While we can reliably find whales (on every single tour since we began - except 2 times) we cannot predict behaviors. No one can, these are wild animals.
So, consider booking a couple of tours, a few days apart. This will give you twice the opportunity to see something amazing, like active whales displaying - something I know all of our Guests hope for.
Thanks again for the review and for sharing your experience with Whale Watch Cabo.

We went on the last boat tour in the afternoon and it was calm. We got photos taken at the Arch and got to see all the beaches and sea lions around the Arch. Then we headed out and got to sew a lot of whales. Cabo is an amazing place for whale watching and I liked that Whale Watch Cabo is very respectful of the whales. I didn't take a lot of photos because I was told they would email the photos to us and they did. The photos are amazing! It was a fantastic way to spend and afternoon with such beautiful, majestic creatures.

Whale Watch Cabo is the only dedicated Whale Watching Company in Cabo San Lucas - whale watching is the only thing we do!
We therefore follow the Responsible Whale Watching Guidelines and a Code of Conduct when operating our boats around the whales.
This leads to better, more natural and longer encounters with the whales. We can never predict Whale behaviors, no one can. We can predict finding the whales, only 2 tours in 3 years did not see whales (and we invited those Guests back out for a second - successful go).
Thanks for sharing your experience with WWC - we enjoy having Guests with similar mentalities of non-invasive, respectful whale watching join our tours!
Wishing you many more amazing whale encounters in the future.
