Soak up the scenery of the Cabos peninsula, passing Lovers Beach, the dramatic curve of Los Cabos Arch, and a colony of sea lions.

Hello Marquir, we're glad the crew was able to make your day at sea extra special and fun.is a huge part of being on vacation, so rocking with the waves as you explore the Bay seems like the best way to do it!

March is a great month for whale watching
Paula_R, Mar 2022
Many whales to see this year. Too many boats blocking our view of the arch and surrounding rock formations. It would be great if boats left the harbor at regular intervals so that all passengers have good opportunities to see the sights up close. The crew is very fun and personable.

Karl M, Apr 2018
Okay experience. The boat is very crowded and it's extremely difficult to get a good view of anything with so many people on board. The breakfast they provided was quite nice, but didn't really make up for the rest of the tour. Great views from the boat and you can get good pictures of the arch, but everything about the experience just seemed rather cheesy. If I could do it again I would try to go with a smaller company or just hire a boat at the pier.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Hi Karl M, We appreciate your feedback. Our Cabo Escape Tour is meant to be entertaining and for you to stand up and fun, we do, however, have other options for the experience you are looking for such as our Tu Enamorado which is a very different city, a calmer and more relaxing experience. Thank you for choosing us, and we hope to welcome you back. Kind regards, Wild Cabo Tours

Geoff H, Mar 2018
We did this on our first day at Cabo for the Sunday morning 9:00 a.m. breakfast tour. People were in a good mood, and the staff works hard to make sure your are having a good time. The breakfast is buffet style with a variety of items. The whales were active during our tour. So that we were able to take a lot of good photos. And there is a guide providing an overview and ask questions you may have during the trip.
Response from Host, Sep 2022
Hi Geoff H Thank you very much for telling us about your complete experience, since many people fall in love with our fun Cabo Escape Tours. We hope that you will soon return to experience all of our Wild Cabo tours! Best regards, Wild Cabo Tours

We went on this tour for my bachelorette day. The food was great! A good mix between western and Mexican cuisine. The drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) were all included. The staff was very friendly and helpful!! We saw a few whales and one whale breach!!

James C, Feb 2017
Well worth the money. This whale watching cruise is enjoyable and educational and the on-board breakfast was well done. Because of the size of this craft it was very stable and suitable for guests that might be concerned about sea sickness. There was a full bar on this double decker boat selling cocktails but beers were handed out at no cost. A professional biologist provided an interesting and educational commentary in English and Spanish. Because February is the middle of the season for whale watching there were numerous sightings. A few were near the boat but most were off in the distance. Taking pictures of the sightings and getting good results is very difficult. By the time you spot, point, focus, and shoot you've missed it. Video is a better option.

FredL_J, Jan 2017
My wife and I have done several whale watching tours and this was typical of the others. We did see whales coming up for air and fluking but we did not see any breach. It was just another typical whale watching tour, but anytime you get close to these majestic mammals, it's exciting.
