    What to Expect
    Your tour starts at the marina in Cabo San Lucas, where you'll hop aboard the Buccaneer Queen pirate ship. Meet the crew, and listen to a brief introduction about the area and the whales you are likely to see—humpback and gray whales.

    Then set off, heading toward the rock formations and past Lover's Beach, the Arch of Cabo San Lucas, and a sea lion colony. Your captain stops for a bit so you can take photos before speeding up as you make your way into the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. Keep your eyes peeled for the whales who visit these Mexican waters each year to breed, and listen to commentary from an onboard guide about the behaviors and other characteristics of the animals.

    While you cruise, enjoy a provided breakfast and drinks from the open bar. Your tour ends with return to the marina.

    This excursion was well worth taking. We had wonderful weather and the crew were very professional and courteous. The whales were a little uncooperative but as it was the end of their season, it was to be expected. I would definitely recommend this tour to...More

    The ship was colorful, the breakfast and drinks were good, the staff always helpful (taking pictures, making drinks (alcohol, cocktail, smoothies, soda, water, etc), game for kids on the way back). The whale watching part is about the same across all the boats (seems to...More

    We found this private excursion online as part of a cruise to Mexico. By far the best Mexico adventure we had! The only hiccup was that we walked to where the directions (according to Google) said was the meeting point, but it was not. They...More

    It depends on how choppy the sea is. There really isn't any reason to move around too much once you're sailing. Breakfast is before you sail and the crew will bring drinks to you. They do take you below deck to view your... More

    Hi there, I believe the pirate ship is a 2 1/2 hour trip and leaves the dock around 10:00 am and breakfast is immediately served. I think you have to pay for drinks, except for coffee, juice, etc.
