Awesome whale trip! - Absolutely the best whale watching we’ve ever done and we have done many. Would not hesitate to do this again and again and again. Photos we received were high quality and there were over 100. Also received recording of whales singing underwater. We followed a pod of juveniles playing for 30 to 45 minutes and got us up close and personal. It was amazing !!!!!!! it’s a little bit

Absolutely amazing! Top notch company!! - Amazing!!! Oscar and Danny gave us such a wonderful experience! We have been on different whale watching excursions in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Vallarta and this ranks among the top! Very respectful to the whales and very knowledgeable. Added plus is Oscar sends his photos to us after which are professionally done!! We will definitely go with Whale Watch Cabo again if we return to Cabo someday!

Highly recommended! - We've gone on the zodiac tour a few times with Whale Watch Cabo over the past three years and it's always a great experience. The guides are very knowledgeable and accommodating. Would highly recommend the tour.

Thumbs up for a beautiful and very instructive adventure! - Thumbs up for a beautiful and very instructive adventure! Our guide Gisela is so knowledgeable about the whales, which she studied for many years in Iceland, but also the local birds, fish and other animals around. We were lucky to be able to observe 2 groups of 3-4 humpbacks, then stayed around a mother and her 2-wks old baby and finished the tour watching a couple of humpbacks jumping and waving their fins. An unforgettable experience. The fact that Gisela was taking the photos allowed us to concentrate on observing the whales etc, and we were emailed a file full of wonderful photos afterwards. Can't recommend enough!
