    San Jose del Cabo
    Stop: 2 hours
    Cabo is known as one of the best places in the world to study and encounter Whales of all species. Salty Cabo Excursions offers the most comprehensive Whale Watching tour in San Jose del Cabo. Our multilingual marine enthusiasts will share endless knowledge about the local area as well as the abundant Marine Life of Baja. As an Ocean Lover and marine enthusiast, I would like to pass on a bit of this passion to make this world a better and more sustainable place and provide memories to last a lifetime. Each year, Humpback Whales and Gray Whales migrate down to the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez for their annual mating ritual. The whale watching season starts on the 15th of December and ends on the 15th of April. Away from the boat crowds, we will take the time to observe the natural behaviors of these mammals, at the same time enjoying the breathtaking displays of mothers and calves, and/or competitive males. Something you will never forget.

This is by far the best option for whale watching in Cabo! It's a more private experience as the marina is not crowded. I highly recommend you skip the concentrated touristy marina of San Lucas, and choose this experience in San Jose. Roland and Sofia were incredible to work with. They were also flexible to adjust our date when we had a hiccup come up in our travel plans. Sofia was the most wonderful guide! She has a peaceful and joyful presence and is full of information on whales and marine life. You won't regret this experience.

Roland, Sofia, and Chato's hospitality are unmatched. We had an incredible time whale watching with Salty Cabo. We originally reserved the tour for a Tuesday but due to the weather, we had to reschedule. Ronald was great throughout the week with communication to ensure we saw some whales before we left.
Sofia was our guide and you could tell she loved what did for a living as her face lit up telling us all about the whales and other animals in the area. We got to sit back and watch the whales while Sofia took amazing photos, listen to the whales in the area, and overall had a beautiful morning with Salty Cabo. This is the place for whale watching in San Jose del Cabo!

Dont even spend a minute looking elsewhere for a magical whale watching tour! Roland is a charming and knowledgeable host, with a passion for these beautiful gentle giants. He said be patient, let nature run its course, but we didnt have to wait - we had a full 2 hour interaction with female humpbacks with a baby in tow. The baby put on a show for us the whole time, leaping out of the water continuously while we breathlessly watched. Thanks to Roland and Salty Cabo excursions for a memory to last a lifetime. We will be back!

Thank you for your appreciation. As I said, every day is different in whale watching and observing nature. We are just guests in their natural habitat and let nature decide. I think with the right spirit everything can happen. I am very happy that you enjoyed our service and our gentle giants here in San Jose del Cabo. Hopefully, we can welcome you again one day. All the best.

We really enjoyed our time on the water with Roland. We were fortunate that it was just our group of 4, but the boat would have still been comfortable with up to 10 people. He's a really nice and personable guy and was very informative about the whales and their behavior. We got to listen to the whales communicate on the hydrophone, which was very cool. Roland and his captain did a good job seeking out the whales - they were a bit elusive the first 20 minutes of the tour, but that's nature. We did end up seeing several individuals as well as some moms and babies, which was very cool. I would recommend this tour over some of the large boats with tons of people on them.

Hi Rick, thank you for your kind words. Our philosophy is quality over quantity. That is the reason we keep our groups small so that our guests can enjoy their holidays to the fullest. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to see the whales in their natural habitat even if sometimes it takes a bit of time to spot them. Looking forward to meeting you again. All the best.

Really great tour! Roland was very knowledgeable, and you could tell that even after many years of doing these trips, he still gets very excited to see and hang out with the whales. Very comfortable boat. He let us hear the whales sing through his hydrophone. And a really great perk is that he takes photos to share with you after the tour so that you can focus on just being with the whales instead of taking pictures. Wish we could have done another tour. Thanks Roland!

Hello Travis, for me that is the best time of the year when the whales are here. I never get tired to see them and educating my guest a little bit about them. For us here at Salty Cabo Excursions it is important the guests can enjoy the moment. This means to embrace the moment and not worry about taking pictures and showing them to friends and family. Very happy that you had a great time. All the best.

We were looking for a small group experience away from the crowds, where we could focus on observing migrating whales and their babies. It was my 6-year-old daughter's first time seeing whales, and Roland's tour was perfect. He's a kind and soft-spoken guide, and his boat captain was a wonderful 4th generation San Jose del Cabo fisherman who knows the water like it's his home. Right out of the marina, we came upon a female, her baby, and an escort whale. There were 8 of us plus Roland and Checho. We had such a close up view and were able to watch them for a long while as they swam closer to the boat (we watched from a respectful distance) and breached and flapped their tails as they dove. We were so lucky. All in all, a fantastic experience. At the end, a cheesy yacht pulled up with partying 20 somethings that practically ran the whales over as they tried to take selfies of the scene. Kind of the experience of visiting Cabo in a nutshell. Take this tour, it's awesome!

I am very happy that you and your family enjoyed it so much. We keep our groups small so that our guests can enjoy nature and our gentle giants "the whales" to the fullest. Our philosophy is quality over quantity so that you can sit back and relax during your vacation. Look forward to meeting you again. All the best

Everything was perfect!! Roland and the captain were great - very knowledgeable and informative. The boat was very quiet and smooth (this is important because sometimes you get the loud diesel engines). The weather was perfect as well. Best of all we saw so many whales and a baby. Roland and the captain seemed to know exactly where to go.

Hello Tracy, glad to read that you enjoyed it so much. It shows us that we are on the right track. Conducting this tour for so many years we definitely have our spots to look for whales but still, it is up to the gentle giants where and when to show up. I hope we welcome you again to some of our adventures here in San Jose del Cabo. All the best.

We had a great relaxing afternoon watching the whales with Roland. Roland knows how to locate the Humpbacks! We saw a mama whale and her baby along with a pod of dolphins. Roland takes care of the photos and videos so you can spend your time enjoying the whales. And, we were the only boat out there! No crowds in San Jose del Cabo!!
Roland placed a microphone in the water and it was magical to hear the mama singing to her baby.
Very seaworthy, stable boat. The captain was great. I highly recommend this tour for any age group. I want to do the sunset tour next time!

We loved the experience and Roland and his Captain were superb. Roland set us up with the Sunset Tour as our original morning tour was cancelled due to high winds. We saw lots of dolphins playing near the boat and many whales spouting and breaching. The boat was very comfortable, they provided blankets if you needed them and we had a lovely sunset on the way back to the dock The wine and snacks were an extra bonus. We would definitely return and recommend Salty Cabo Excursions. Thank you Roland and Mary Ann

Wonderful way to spend a Sunday morning! Thanks to Roland and our Captain we fully enjoyed our whale watching experience. Seeing those big beauties breach the water was very exciting and HEARING them topped it off! Roland uses a microphone in the water so, not only do you see them, you hear them talking to one other. We felt safe and secure throughout the trip. We would highly recommend this to others.
