Great tour. Scenic and informative about the area. The crew and staff are very friendly and fluent in English. Snorkeling is great. The staff will help you, they feed the fish so the come by the thousands when you are in the water. Food was very good. Perfect 3 hour getaway.
Fun group trip to snorkel, whale watch with drinks and lunch. Def recommend for the deal. Shocked at how large the fish were. I was expecting smaller fish.
SUCH a bargin! We went to Chileno Bay and saw a lots of fish! On our way back to the marina after a fabulous lunch, a pod of whales appeared about a 100 yards off the bow. The captains got a little closer and cut the engines. Almost on que, the pod put on quite a show for all to enjoy! A 2 for 1 excursion!
I would DEFINATELY book this again and HIGHLY recommend this to anyone visiting the area.
Be sure to bring some to tip the crew, they were so attentive and professional!
Besides the nice snorkeling and lunch activity, we saw few hunchback whales breech from the water on the way back to Los Cabos!
Take this tour when you first arrive in Cabo to get a feel of the area of things to do that may not be on your agenda. What a great investment with a LOT packed into a few hours: boat tour, shopping, tequila history, sightseeing in old town, glass blowing and a nice, local lunch. And our tour quide knew his stuff !!! We had a mixed language group and no one felt left out. Our group from the US found it interesting that we were the only ones who thought it good to tip our guide and driver though...for a great day of service. Is that odd to anyone else ?
The crew were fun and very accomodating. There was a pod of hump back whales in the area and they made a point of getting close and allowing us the opportunity to watch them for a few minutes.
The cruise was excellent, just as we had hoped. My wife and I, our 3 kids (ages 24, 15, and 11), and my wife's parents (ages 67 and 70), all had a great time. The weather wasn't overly warm but we grabbed chairs on the front deck of the catamaran and enjoyed the trip to the snorkeling area and back. The snorkeling was good and the 1 hour and 20 minutes at the snorkeling stop left enough time to swim up to the beach and just hang out as a family. We also took advantage of the open bar, a selling point for our group. The cruise was a BIG success for our family!
Our family had a great time on the Cruise and Snorkeling. The staff were fun and helpful. We have kids between the ages of 9 and 17. I'd recommend this family and friends.
This experience was terrific. We had the opportunity of following a humpback whale and her calf for about a half an hour, then proceeded on to our snorkeling destination which was quite a distance away from the Cabo marina. Saw lots of fish, however the water was a little murky
We sat on the upper deck coming and going. Crew was alot of fun. Snacks could have been a little different than tuna salad or nachos. Maybe fruit or something else. Plenty to drink. We noticed that another larger boat got to the snorkeling spot after us and left before us. Would definately recommend.
We booked this tour in hopes of "reef snorkeling," but it did take a while to get to our destination as we stopped and did a bit of whale watching but it was a great experience. Everyone really enjoyed that and got great pictures. When we got to our spot I assumed a guide would be in the water with us and it would be a group activity to look for fish but it was more or less us being left to our own entertainment. It turned out good though; the water was nice. The crew was very attentive and the on board activities were awesome too. I would recommend this
The boat, it left early, without us. Our voucher listed 10:30AM as the meeting time and 11:00AM as the departure time. According to the marina guy who controls access to that dock the boat had left at 10:00AM. The Marina worker did offer to get us on the boat for the next day, with another full payment... We protested, strongly, that suggestion. After that the marina worker called the tour operator and they agreed to let us go on the tour the following day using our voucher.
The next day we were there at 9:45AM, the boat left around 11:00AM, go figure.
Once successfully on the tour it was fun, we saw a few whales, the drinks flowed easily. The snorkel location has a good bit of fish, but not too much in the way of a reef. Lunch on the way back was fried chicken and pretty tasty, again drinks flowed easily.
One thing to keep in mind is they don't give you a new snorkel, they are all reused each trip. If I went again I'd stop at walmart and get myself a basic snorkel kit.
Snorkeling OK but not great. Saw some fish but not a great variety. Water not that clear. Poor snacks on way back to port. Drinks good and staff attentive for refills.
This is the second time I am writing a review on this because I believe that the Viator Team did not post my first review on their site because I gave an honest horrible review. Instead I was sent another email to rate the tour again hoping that I might forget about it/give up on doing it. I am saving my review so that I can have it submitted again if my review does not get shared this time.
Here is why I would not recommend this tour:
1. Unfriendly service, the staff were not friendly/hyping up the guests at all, the only time they tried to be friendly was when they came about with the tips bottle. Throughout the trip, they stayed in the corner using their cellphone, chatting about themselves, sitting around.
2. Although the tour was scheduled for 4 hours, we only got into the water for snorkeling for about 15 minutes, after that, the staff starting rushing us back up on the cruise. They brought us to murky/unclear waters, which we couldn't really see anything. Snorkeling was supposed to be the highlight of the cruise! :.
3. You might want to note that this tour is said to start at 11am, check in at 10am, but 2 days before the tour, it was changed to 10 am check in without apologies.
4. The food and drinks were a disappointment, it was lower than average.
The only plus point? They stopped at the Arch for taking photos for about 10 minutes? But every cruise does that. This was the worst not enjoyable tour I had in my entire trip.
