We found Thalia both very friendly and the information she gave us was very informative, we got to see a group of 4 whales together and others on there own or a couple together. It was a very good morning that went very quickly. This was our 3rd time to Vallarta but the first time Whale watching, I found it very moving when I first saw them. Very good value, really enjoyed.

Good experience, it's getting late in the season for whales in the Sea of Cortez so we were pleased to see many of them. Water was too rough to go out into the Pacific where there would have been more activity.

One of the best ever! We saw 25 whales and one even flirted with us for several minutes swimming around and under our boat. Thalia was amazing and very knowledgeable. We certainly didn't expect to have a Marine Biologist as our guide. We don't think that we will ever be able to duplicate this wonderful experience!

We had a great time on our trip, my husband has limited mobility and the Staff were really helpful and did everything possible to help him. The marine biologist, our guide, was very knowledgeable and we saw lots of whales, and she explained things very well.
Thank you for a great experience.

Wonderful sightings. Our guide, Thalia, was thorough in her presentations on various aspects of these mammals. The small group is ideal. Jose is a conscientious and courtesy captain.

We had some great whale sightings. The guide was very knowledgeable, which was educational. Would have liked to get a little closer to the whales, but overall it was an amazing experience, I would definitely recommend it.

We had a great whale watching experience with Thalia. She answered everyone's questions as we all helped with whale sightings and enjoyed the beautiful day.
