About
From late November until mid April we offer 2.5 hour private whale watching and marine wildlife tours in Cabo San Lucas. A great option for your family or group. We offer educational and non-invasive whale watching tours led by a bilingual Marine Biologist guide/photographer. All tour photos are included free of charge. On our way out of the bay you will pass Pelican Rock, Lovers Beach and the famous Arch. After that your guide and captain will search for the whales. The most common species we see on our tours are Humpback Whales, Common Dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins, Olive Ridley Sea Turtles and Mobula Rays. At times we also might see other species of wildlife such as Gray Whales, Sperm Whales, Blue Whales and Killer Whales. When conditions permit your guide will use a hydrophone to hear the humpback whales sing. From December 15th until April 15th we offer our Whale Sighting Guarantee, which means if you don't see any whales you get to come out again for free (space permitting).

Amazing experience. Highly recommend
Loved everything about this experience. Our guide, Sandra, was awesome, and super knowledgeable. She is marine biologist and full of info on the whales. She was able to identify gender, ages etc.
Our captain Hector was great. One thing about whale watching Cabo is they don’t harass the whales. They have strict guidelines about distance and our captain even stopped to pick up a couple pieces of plastic floating in the ocean. Sandra also took photos for us so we could just enjoy the views and not be distracted by trying to get pics. They sent us a file of over 100 photos the following day. We stopped at the arch and saw some sea lions as well. Whale Watch Cabo is a great experience, we will definitely go again next time we’re in Cabo. Thanks also for the great lunch recommendation afterwards (Los Clarros tacos)! Five stars for Whale watch Cabo.

We really appreciate you choosing to join us to responsibly encounter the amazing Whales here in Cabo, and your recommendation. As we offer Whale Watching and nothing else, our staff of Biologists and Captains have the most experience, knowledge and enthusiasm here in Los Cabos. We love to share these encounters with our Guests and I think it shows. Part of our service on every tour is to have our Biologist Guides take photos (for free) for our Guests. Wishing you all many more amazing family adventures with Whales.

Majestic!
Did the private tour with Tania as our guide and Alonso as our captain. Both were awesome and knowledgeable! Not only did we learn a lot about whales, but also got to see a lot of activity! We saw a group of humpback whales and gray whales, and at the end of the tour got to witness a baby humpback whale beaching! Highly recommend Whale Watch Cabo!

Whale Watch Cabo ... Do.Not.Miss.It
Feb. 2021
Once again, our adventure with Whale Watch Cabo was an outstanding tour! Tania is a knowledgeable marine biologist and answered all our questions. Even with the sea swales, captain Alonso got us out to experience several groupings of entertaining whales. This is an outing not-to-be-missed!!

One of a kind whale watching experience: fun and educational
Jan. 2021
This was a highly professional and exceptional tour! Having Lisa, a marine biologist, as our guide talking about the whales we saw and explaining their behaviors added to how great the trip was. Our captain, Victor, was excellent and spotted several whales, and he followed all the rules for approaching them carefully so that they would let us watch them for longer. We saw numerous whales, some that were in pairs, and one of the pairs we saw was super interested in us and came very close to the boat. At one point, one of them popped his/her head out of the water to just look at us. It was an amazing experience and worth every penny! Also, the shop required us to wear masks at all times, even on the boat, and our captain and guide did as well. Everything felt very safe for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Life changing experience
Jan. 2021
This is something you can't really do everywhere else because 1) it has to be in season and 2) whales don't really go to every coast.

But whales are a very common attraction to this area because of how often and how much they're there. This is one of the things I say everyone must absolutely do !! Please book with pacacho Adventures because they're extremely nice and cheap.

I definitely will come back and go whale watching again.

Great Whale Watching Experience!
Feb. 2020
We had 5 adults and 6 kids under 10 on a boat to ourselves. Went out on a whale watching experience with hopes of seeing some great whales. We came upon a mother and fairly newborn calf, and were fortunate to stay near them for an extended time. Our guide Tania was very knowledgeable and informed us about many of the fine points about of the relationship between the mother and calf. Even more fun, Tania seemed genuinely excited to see them too. Captain Alanso was very capable and made sure everyone on the boat was safe and comfortable. All in all, a great experience, thank you!

Wonderful adventure
Jan. 2020
Had a great time and saw many humpback whales. Tour led by a marine biologist (Gala). This was a serious tour with no drinking and dancing! Small group on a 12 passengers boat. Learned so much. Tour leader took pictures and then sent them to us with a Dropbox link at no charge. Would highly recommend to anyone.

Excellent adventure
Jan. 2020 • Family
We had an unforgettable adventure on this tour. We chose the early morning tour. Hugo, the captain and Bea, the guide were exceptional. They shared just as much enthusiasm as we did to be out on the water and experiencing these incredible giants. We found whales almost immediately and watched for a bit. They expertly chose when to move on to another group and we are so glad that they did. We found a group of 4 lively and active whales (we saw around 9 total). Bea explained everything that we were seeing and was very informative. We appreciated that the concern for the whales’ safety and well-being was foremost in their minds. They were sure to keep the appropriate distance from them to keep them safe and happy.

Fantastic experience!
Our guide, Lisa, and our captian, Hugo, gave us a fantastic private tour. Even though we are slightly outside the typical season oh, we did see several humpback whales, and learned a lot about both Cabo San Lucas and it's native wildlife during our tour. One person in our party has back issues, and both the captain and guide were very happy to slow down so as not to aggravate it. They were all extremely knowledgeable, and appear to follow every single rule and regulation required for a company such as theirs. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in a boat tour or whale watching here in Cabo!
