We've been to Cabo the same week in mid to late march on this same tour. Each time we're told they are seeing whales. I know it's tough to predict, but I would almost recommend them cutting off this tour this late in the year or discount it heavily, Once they don't see whales close to the marina, they go... More

Cabo San Lucas is a somewhat jarring contradiction. On the one hand it's a rowdy town full of loud bars and tourist traps. On the other, it sits next to scenery of incredible beauty and majesty. On of the best ways to get up close to that beauty is taking Ocean Rider's whale watching excursion. Frankly, I was skeptical that... More

We were a group of 14 which probably added to our day. Otto our guide just put everything over the top. His personality fit perfectly with our gang! We enjoyed his banter and all the information he had of the area. We say a baby whale do a full breach, and multiple surface breaks for a pair of whales. Our... More

However the sea was very rough, we went out way too far and WAY TOO FAST for conditions I have done an extreme amount of whale watching, Mexico, Maui, Vancouver Island it is a passion and have never experienced fear before. The captain was very young... More

This was one of the greatest excursions! We have been on whale watching tours before and saw no whales just dolphins. Thanks to our guide Otto, he is so knowledgeable and really gets you into the action. Takes the greatest pictures and the flashdrive you can purchase is so worth the money; couldn't have gotten the shots he does. It... More

This was a fun day out. Our guide, Adrian, was knowledgeable and very helpful. Our boat captain , Wilbur was not only a great captain, but he also facilitated the whale watching. It was pretty cool to see the whales and I would recommend this company. I would do it again ! !

What a great excursion watching hump back and grey whales off the coast of Cabo. We saw multiple breaches, rolls and tail slaps. The guide was knowledgeable and amusing. Great adventure.

Otto, our guide, made this trip most entertaining and informative. His exuberance is catchy, and you can tell he loves his job. So much fun! And, our captain, was really adept at getting us as close as possible to the whales, without intruding on their territory too much. Highly recommended!!
