      • Signs of the Zodiac: This 24-foot inflatable boat packs a loaded punch with high performance, rugged endurance, roomy comfort, and the ability to move quickly when a whale surfaces to maximize your awe-factor.
      • Twists and shouts: Watch the whales leaping, splashing, skimming the surface, and playing in their natural, wave-capped habitat as you enjoy complimentary water and sodas onboard.
      • A whale of a tale: Stand mesmerized before the truly gargantuan Blue Whales, Humpbacks, and occasionally orca and sperm whales that get up-close-and-personal in the Sea of Cortez between October and May. With a bit of luck, they’ll put on a show as well!

      Please meet in the lobby or reception area of your Los Cabos hotel. Our representative will be holding a sign with your name or the tour's name on it. You must confirm the name of your hotel at checkout, so we know where to pick you up.

      Special Medical Restriction

      This tour is only recommended if you are fit, accustomed to exertion, have no back, neck, heart or respiratory problems, are not pregnant, and you like a bumpy ride.

      When Humpback Whales, Orcas, and a few other larger sea mammals decide to check out what’s happening above the waterline, they rise vertically out of the water and gently kick their flukes to hold themselves in place. A bit like treading water, it’s known as “spy hopping.” On this Zodiac adventure tour, we turn the tables on the whales and do some modified spy hopping ourselves! Cross your fingers, and you may even catch them breaching, leaping, and spy hopping right back at’cha!

      Your tour begins as you step aboard the deck of the 24-foot Zodiac. Don’t let her inflatable pontoons fool you! This is a beast of a powerboat designed to safely ply the ocean waves with speed, maneuverability, and finesse. You’ll note the small number of guests. This tour is kept to a maximum of 15 for a more intimate, small group experience. Once free of the pier, we’ll skim ‘round the tip of the Baja peninsula on our way to the Sea of Cortez.  Keep your eyes on the coastline for the Cabo Arch, Lovers Beach, and a colony of sea lions in classic sun-swim-play and sun s’more mode.

      Hopefully, your waterproof camera is primed by the time we reach the famed “boudoir and nursery” of the great Blue and Humpbacked whales that annually migrate to these shallower waters. Occasionally, sperm whales and even orcas stop by as well, so stay on alert for the tell-tale white sprays that say, “Get ready, I’m surfacing” in whale-speak.

      No craft can get you to the whales faster, once spotted, or keep you there longer than the Zodiac. Its quiet stealth, which prevents startling the whales, unites with speed and motility to cinch even the most challenging photo ops. By the end of the tour – every white spray explored, every life-changing encounter recorded –you’ll realize that even though the Zodiac can’t tell your whale watching fortunes, boy, does it ever maximize them!

      That’s a little hard to swallow!

      Even though the Blue Whale easily wins the Guinness record for largest mammal on earth, Humpbacks, too, have some pretty impressive stats. An adult Humpback Whale is larger than your classic yellow school bus, and sports a mouth that would extend from its shiny front grill past its shell-shocked bus driver and through a good four rows of unbridled third graders. A single tongue matches the size of a car like the Volkswagen Beetle, and the opening to its massive throat has the whopping dimensions of a…cantaloupe? Well, yes. But if such a tiny throat seems like an aquatic gastric bypass gone-wrong, the truth is simpler. Humpbacks feast on schools of tiny fish like krill, plankton, and mackerel, using the baleen they sport in place of upper teeth to strain the “Cheerios” from their oceanic cereal bowl. So, just how many krill fill a single bite for an average Humpback whale? Enough – no lie! - to fill your classic yellow school bus.

      Non-refundable if canceled within 48 hours of requested services.
