Cabo San Lucas Whale Watching Excursion Reviews

Naturalist guides lead you on an adventure in search of the gray whale as it navigates the waters from Alaska to the Sea of Cortez on the longest migration of any mammal.
This was whale watching by Zodiac run by Cabo Tours.
This was whale watching by Zodiac run by Cabo Tours. It was outstanding. Our captain was exceptional, friendly and almost supernatural in his ability to Get us right up to the whales.

We were lucky - whales, whales and then more whales.
We were lucky - whales, whales and then more whales. On the way back into the harbor, a large sea lion was on the aft deck of a sport fishing boat begging for food. What a sight!

Although we were on a large boat and our captain kept well away from the whales, there are just too many boats harassing the whales so I would not do this excursion again.

Brilliant. Fantastic. The whales were everything we hoped and more. The boat was good with only a few of us on board. They were very informative and seemed as excited as us!

We did the Whale Watching by Zodiac. We were on a 15 person Zodiac in two (2) foot waves chasing whales. It does not get any better than this. Our tour guide and boat captain did a great job of teaching about the whales. Because of his experience, he had a good idea of where the whales would surface and had us in place. We saw both Humpback and Grey whales. We did not see any whales breech, but did seen their backs and tails. It was a lot of fun. Despite the size of the waves, the boat was surprisingly smooth and dry. Read Less

While we saw whales, Jose, the Captain of the Zodiac we were in was not very good. He only discussed the whales when someone asked him a direct question, he appeared to be more interested in discussing with other boat captains and the bouncing around he gave us on the boat caused minor injuries (bruises mainly) to everyone in my party as well as a fear that he was going to get us tossed out of the Zodiac, despite hanging on for dear life. There were times we bounced so high off the boat to get slammed down that we actually we cursing out loud and still this guy did not ease up. Definitely would avoid this one, at least with this captain as I can't speak to how the other captains were. Read Less
