A must do tour!! We departed from Cabo in a large group and then once in La Paz, we divided into smaller groups, allowing 6-8 people per small boat captain. Each of the boats swam with multiple whale sharks --- up so close you could have touched them. Such docile giants --- a once in a life time experience!!

This all day trip was all we had hoped for! Breakfast sandwiches were very nice. We were fortunate to volunteer to be on the boat with Aaron little brother which was only six of us. Aaron was extremely helpful and made sure everyone had a good view of the whale sharks, even my friend who was slow and tentative getting in the water. Four of us were able to get in and swim at least five different times, including with a 30-32 foot whale shark. Lunch was fish tacos and I went back for seconds.

This was a great tour. The guides were very organized and super friendly. They took us right to the Whale Sharks and we had a number of close interactions that were just amazing. The lunch was very good and we had lots of fun stopping at the Hotel California.

My only negative is that there are a number of jellyfish swarms where I got badly stung and I had a really bad allergic reaction. It has been a week since the tour and I still look like I am covered in chickenpox. To be safe, you would want to wear a full wetsuit and make sure that there is some vinegar on hand to rinse you off if you get stung!

Our trip from Los Cabos to La Paz to swim with the whale sharks was excellent! There were only 3 whale sharks to be seen during our tour, but they allowed us to swim with and observe them lazily swimming through the clear sea water. This trip was on my bucket list and I am so very glad I got to do it! Leo was our tour guide on the two hour ride from Cabo to La Paz, and Mario was our guide on the boat with the whale sharks. He was very patient and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend this tour!!!

The excursion was amazing and exceeded our expectations. The new Mercedes Van and the food on the trip to La Paz were excellent. We loved our guide Alex, he was very knowledgeable and very engaging. We spotted many whale sharks and were able to have several up close encounters both in the water and in the boat. The lunch afterwards was great, especially the fish tacos. The excursion was well worth the money, we highly recommend it.

WOW, WOW, WOW!!! I've swum with whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez!! A lifelong dream was fulfilled on this tour. Our guide, Oliver, was a lot of fun and this day was very enjoyable from start to finish - including a really nice lunch. Still can't believe we've done it and I would DEFINITELY recommend this trip. Thanks, Oliver!

We picked up our snorkeling equipment in Cabo early that morning. We meet our tour guide, Raz. He was ensured everyone had a great time during the entire trip.We then proceeded to Lapaz. The views of the mountains, Pacific Ocean, Sea of Cortez were amazing along the way. After arriving in Lapaz, Raz gathered our group and suited up for our adventure. After a short boat ride, we spotted a whale shark. Everyone dove into the water to have an amazing up close view of the Sharks. After many sightings we returned to Lapaz, where we enjoyed a great lunch which included fish tacos. After lunch, we enjoyed our short shopping spree and proceeded to Todos Santos. In Todos Santos we visited the famous Hotel California and Tequila Sunise bar. Such a lovely place.. The tequila sunrise's were like no other! After a short shopping spree , we were on the road to Cabo singing Eagles songs.. A great time with an superb group!

Fantastic tour - one of the best ones I've taken! It was a small-group of about 12 people with a few guides. Pick up from our hotel was on time and smooth and we were then taken to the dolphin center in the marina in Los Cabos to meet our guide. After a briefing with Danny, we drove about 1.45-2 hours to La Paz during which we received a light breakfast and more info about what we would be doing that day. Upon arrival we got locker keys, dry bags, snorkels, fins and towels and boarded the boat to take us out on the water. It took some searching for the whale sharks since it's early on in the season and there are fewer around, but we were able to see 4 of them and swim alongside them (no touching!) They are amazing and it was a great day on the water. Afterwards we had a small buffet lunch with specially-brewed tequila and beer. On the way back, because we had some extra time, we stopped briefly in Todos Santos to see THE Hotel California, before heading back to Cabo and being dropped off. A photographer/guide joins too, so if you want to purchase photos from him at the end, you have the option to. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

Nothing like the photos. I love an adventure and understand that weather and animals don't always cooperate but this was not anything like I expected. Water was murky, very difficult to see. You are expected to swim after the sharks-good luck. Guide lied about photos when I asked if I was in any of them. I was not in any underwater photos and the last photo i paid 50 on flashdrive included one of the guide Aaron and his buddy giving the finger to anyone.
