Full description
Climb aboard a super-fast and comfortable RIB boat and embark on your whale-watching adventure, starting with a boat ride past Cabo's most important landmarks. After a quick safety briefing, your captain and onboard marine biologist will take you to Land's End, one of Cabo's most famous rock formations. From here, admire Pelican Rock, Lover's Beach, Neptune's Finger, and of course the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas, where you will stop to take some photos. You will also be able to spot a friendly colony of sea lions along the way. Afterwards, head out to either the Sea of Cortez or the Pacific Ocean to spot some humpback whales. Keep an eye out for other marine animals such as blue whales, orcas, dolphins, and many other animals. Once you have spotted one of these majestic creatures, learn more about them from your expert guide. Use a hydrophone to listen to their breathtaking song for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

We had a fabulous time! The guide was so knowledgeable and we learned so much. The driver was excellent at finding and following the whales. We even stayed out longer following a cool group of whales. The boat was great and had cushioned seating and a roof so you didn’t get sunburned. Small group! Highly highly recommend!!!!! I can’t wait to do this again!

It is a highly recommended experience, however I made my reservation one month in advance for 8 am, they confirmed me one day before and asked me to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before, I followed instructions and arrived on time at 7:45 and at that moment they inform me that they changed the schedule and did not notify me and the tour started at 9 am (there is nothing to do at that time more than wait). Everything else very well, the guide very friendly and at night I already had the photos of the experience in my mail.

It's great, because of the type of boat we were the ones who could get closer to them. Many whale moms with their babies, great explanation of the biologist Mireya and the attention of the captain. I would definitely hire this tour again. Note: if you get dizzy, take an anti-dizziness syrup before, because the boat moves a lot.
