Was very nervous, but team was great! Auto, our guide made sure I felt safe and then wowed us all with his knowledge and humor. Zodiac ride was such fun - glad I didn't chicken out. We went on 8am tour when water was calmer and saw lots of whales upclose and personal. Highly recommend this fun activity. FYI...no bathroom... More

Whale watching trip. Picked up at motel on schedule only to wait an hour down town while they decided if trip scheduled was going and then to move their boats around. Weather has been very windy and there are white caps and rollers on the seas.When we booked we even looked at weather map ours selves to determine the best... More

I went on the 8am with Tanya. The driver was great he took us on a fun ride! Tanya spoke mostly Spanish for the trip so most of the boat didn't understand. We saw 6 total. But beware it's about an hour of looking for them! I really expected to see them better and to see more. It's nothing like... More

This was so cool. They picked us up at our hotel in San Jose del Cabo. This was a small group and we zipped out to where the whales were. We saw so many whales. There were probably about 15 and they put on a show. We saw everything you could want to see on a whale watch. So amazing.

El Capitan Miguel was very informative and personable. Boats were comfortable and fast. Saw multiple humpback whale pods and they were very active with breaching and slapping the water with their fins.

Tour was supposed to depart at 8:00. We checked in early, then stood around until we were led down to the boat. We embarked at 8:15. Although they advertise a 2 1/2 hour tour, we got about 1 1/2 hours. The guide said we were going back because the water was getting rough, but it was only 9:45, and they... More

I had been whale watching before when visiting Hawaii, but this was like extreme whale watching as the Ocean Rider boats, which are really rescue boats, can zip across the water at super high speeds once a whale is spotted. Our guide, Otto, was infectious as he joked and laughed with us all along the way. Ocean Riders guarantees you... More

Ocean Riders picked us up promptly at our hotel. We had to wait perhaps 1/2 hour at the marina before getting on the boat. Seats, which were kind of like sitting in a saddle, were quite comfortable with a back rest behind and a place to grab on to - the seat of the person in front of you. We... More

We had a great time on the whale watch, and had about 12 whale sightings , 3 of which were very close to the boat. Captain Mike and the crew were excellent. The only negative was that they charged us $10 more than was quoted that same morning, otherwise I would have given it a 5 star rating.

We booked the trip with Ocean Riders through the rep at our hotel. We were picked up promptly at 9:15 in San Jose and proceeded to stop and pick up others. We had to wait about a half hour for folks at one of the hotels. Annoying but I think they were told the wrong time to be out there.... More
