What people are saying about Cabo San Lucas

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.

Absolutely loved our experience. We were all first timers and this was perfect for us. They were so accommodating. Will do again if I ever come back to Cabo, highly highly recommend.

So good!! Admittedly, I was in a good coma…each authentic taco place was unique and delicious! I might do it again this year…and a tequila tasting at the end. Perfect.

Thank you for the amazing time you gave our group…everyone had fun!
