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 have been on a small boat with only 6 people (incl our two guides). After having a short stop at a hot spot with dozens of other boats and spotting some whales at distance we went full speed to a lonely spot again seeing some whales at a distance until they approached *us* in our nutshell obviously being curious for “human watching”; an experience which would have been very unlikely on one of the “luxury” tours. Ani and our captain were equally astonished as we were and we will keep the memories (and photos) forever. Thanks for this amazing experience and best wishes for your future tours!

We had a great time on the tour! Our guide (Mireya) is knowledgable and passionate about whales. We saw humpbacks and orcas on our trip - it was incredible! We got close enough to the whales but gave them a healthy distance. The boat ride was smooth and no one got seasick. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Our guide Annie and Captain Oscar were amazing! We had an incredible time on our trip! We saw dolphins, sea lions, and of course, lots of whales! We even saw one jump straight up into the air, truly incredible! Annie was great at answering all our questions, she was very educated in her field. You could see her love and commitment to nature and all its creatures. Thank you for the wonderful memories! I cant wait until I receive the pictures so I can share with family and friends!
