Full description

Uncover the majesty of the humpback whales that fill the waters of Cabo San Lucas from mid-December through mid-April on this sightseeing cruise. Glide over the water in an airboat and learn about the whales from your guide. Enjoy snacks and bottled water as you sail. You will be transported across the water on board comfortable, high-speed, inflatable boats that provide the best opportunity to see and photograph the amazing animals as they put on a show just yards away from you. Being inflatable and soft, they are also the safest and most whale friendly boats available in Cabo. Professional and enthusiastic whale guides will teach you all about the whales and their habits. You will even have the opportunity to listen to whales communicating underwater with the on board hydrophone listening technology. There is no such thing as a typical whale watching tour in Cabo, as the whales and dolphins are always in charge on their journeys around the world. Let them lead the way, and follow as they swim, play, and put on dazzling, natural acrobatic shows.
