They are expert at spotting the whales and educate you on how to spot them as well. Those boats are small and fast. Everyone has a good seat and great view. We loved it and would do it again. Of course they can't guarantee you will see whales, but we did and it was thrilling. After it was over they... More

Great adventure!! Small groups - under 15 people, fast boats, & well informed guides make for a never forgettable experience. Our guide Santiago was stellar and our whale encounter was full of up close tail slaps and an out of the watch breech!! A must do if ever in Cabo during whale season. I never tire of watching the majesty... More

Have tried two other companies but this is the best by far when out at sea at high speeds you need support on your back, these motor bike style seats give you that support plus you get a much better view of the action as the boat is not overcrowded, they get to the action very quickly and are not...

Bad and unprofessional tour operators. Had us wait for 30 minutes for transportation and did not show up. We called them - phone wasn't answered for some time - and then we got the information that the tour was cancelled due to "bad weather". Other tour operators were working nevertheless. Not recommendable at all

This is the way to watch whales. Our boat had total 13 people including the captain and the guide. First 15-20 minutes were for sight seeing trip around El Arco. Then we went deeper into the sea to watch whales. As we went further inside the sea, the boat increased speed. It felt like we were riding waves. If you... More

This was a great tour. The boat was super fast but you felt safe. We stopped near the famous arch and lovers beach and saw some sea lions before heading way out. We watched a couple of whale for about 25 minutes. It was awseome. The crew was friendly and informative. Would totally do this tour again.

This was an awesome experience. The ride would have been worth the price even had we not seen whales. This is an adrenaline rush experience. If you are afraid of high speed bouncy experiences do everyone a favor and choose a different whale watching excursion on a larger boat. We had 1 passenger who screamed and cried every time the...
