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.
