    We had a great time seeing mama and baby humpbacks on our trip. We knew it was the end of whale watching season so we were very pleased to see them out on the water! Pablo was a great captain. It was a very enjoyable trip.

    We had a fantastic experience and got to swim with several whale sharks! Michelle and all of the crew members were knowledgeable, friendly, and a lot of fun! It's a day my husband and I will remember. Swimming next to a 25-foot whale shark isn't something you get to experience every day. I would highly recommend this tour if you're adventurous want to swim with the gentle giants in the Sea of Cortez.

    This is by far the best way to see the whales, Arc, and sea lions. This boat has cushioned seats under a cover and a front sunken spot to sit and drink. We saw plenty of whales up close, sea lions, and the Arc. The boat is limited in amount of guests so it was not crowded and very enjoyable. They have a full bar and plenty of beer to drink. You will not be disappointed! The little life raft boats and glass bottom boats looked miserable and the large ferry with a ton of people seemed crowded.

    Excellent professional team!! Fergiss, Eva & both Pablos were friendly, extremely attentive, safety conscious and properly planned the dives and dived the plan! Yet willing to shift gears, based off experience, during each dives encounters yet never compromising safety. These 3 days of 2 tank dives were AMAZING!! Our “get back into the dive groove” with their excellent dive gear was just the ticket.. the rocky reef system was full of fish & sea fans was a great beginning.

    Ok, the Gordo Sea Mount dives WAY EXCEEDED all our expectations... A canvass of God’s marine creation!! Humpback whale city! on both days. To our surprise, you could hear them singing on the surface!! All our dives were accompanied by their songs to enhance the experience! I believe rare but possible.. both days we saw the silhouette of the Humpbacks while diving!!
    Ok.. for 50 years I’ve wanted to see schooling hammerheads.. not to disappoint... On 1 of the 4 dives, in 50 ft visibility at 115 ft deep.. out of the depths a school of scallop hammerheads slowly appeared, what an OUTSTANDING sight!! Within a minute they had “tornado” us.. we were in the midst of the school with easily 50 hammerheads in view with the school much larger!! In all our 4 dives at the Gordos, we saw 2 mobula rays, 3 Humpbacks, 50 plus Hammerheads, a large school of red snapper, rock beauties and angles, multiple other species of fish while being serenaded with the gentle songs of the 25 Humpbacks we saw total on the surface!!!!
    We highly recommend the excellent Team of East Cape Explorers!!

    Everyone was super friendly and made the experience such a memorable one. The open bar was a nice touch and we saw lots of whales.

    16 of my friends and I took a private catamaran tour with Cesar and Angel, and it was the highlight of our trip to Cabo. Transportation arrived to the boat arrived right on time. The boat was clean and well taken care of. Cesar was a pro at maneuvering the boat, and Angel killed it at making cocktails and keeping our glasses full. Angel was also more than happy to take lots of pictures of us from all angles. At the end of the ride, we all wanted to do it again the next day! I cannot recommend this company and these guys highly enough!

    Thank you to the great staff at Salty. They were highly recommended on the trip advisor forums so we booked with them. Roland was great to work with. Sofia (im pretty sure this was our guide) was awesome and knowledgeable. Unfortunately I am bad with names and have forgotten our captains name, but he was awesome as well. We came at the end of whale watching season. Roland pre warned us that our chances were 50/50 of seeing anything that particular day. We still elected to go out and try. We finally saw a couple of whales. Could not get close to them as they did not resurface. But the team at Salty tried their hardest to find some for us. Still had a great time on the water and the personal attention given to us bu the staff was top notch. Highly recommend Salty Cabo. Use them you will not be disappointed.

    Roland was an attentive guide to his guests on board, and provided hot coffee to enjoy while out in the chilly early morning air. He explained directional cues for sighting any whales. He even took photos for us and there was no charge to access them. We did not see many whales on this trip. There was nothing more he could have done to conjure them to the ocean’s surface. I loved that he dropped a mic so that we could hear the whales within a mile of us communicating with each other. He pointed out which were “mamas and which were calves”. Fascinating! I would definitely go out with Roland again.

    Best captain and first mate ever! Pablo and Brandon took great care of us, got us right on the whales, and showed us a great time. And after our trip gave us an out of this world recommendation on a restaurant called Spicy Tuna! I’ve been to Cabo 6 times and Pablo and Brandon and the trip they provided were the absolute best. Don’t look anywhere else.

    What an outstanding experience. Topi, Angel and Guadalupe were such amazing hosts. The boat is beautiful - almost brand new. The Captain and crew spotted Whale, dolphin and Sea Lions. To top it off we enjoyed a lovely breakfast of fruit and pancakes as we returned. This is an experience you do not want to miss!
