We arrived Cabo by cruise the end of February, 2019. I had found this whale watch tour online with excellent reviews. Overall, we are very satisfied with the tour and our tour guide Tanya. At first, the staff told us that there was a technical problem with the Zodiac; however，Tanya fixed the issue immediately by switching us to another boat, which was a little bigger. We saw some whales in our 2.5-hour tour. The company is very professional with a very nice office/store front. It is also an English friendly environment. We paid much less than the cruise excursion, and we saw a lot other Zodiac boats during the tour, which I think some of them were from the cruise excursions. We are happy to go budget, at the same time we had the same or even better experience than the cruise excursion provides.
When you go to Cabo to see whales, it is fabulous when you do! We saw lots of them and the boat captain and marine biologist/tour guide were excellent. Really, really a once in a lifetime experience and must do.
Highlight of the trip. Such an amazing experience. The whales were very active on the day of our trip. Lisa was very informative and took incredible pictures for our group. Victor did a great job navigating the boat to make sure we always stayed in the ideal viewing spots. I would highly recommend booking through them. I had done plenty of research before our booking and Im so glad we went through Whale Watch Cabo.
This was a great day. We saw a lot of whales. Very informative, price was great. We loved it. It went on a little bit to long for me.
Excellent biologist and great boat captain....superb trip with lots of whales and super nice people. We'd recommend Whale Watch Cabo to anyone...it was worth every penny!
