Whales are one of the attractions of the winter months in Cabo - these mammals love the warm waters and it is easy to count on a successful experience whale watching in Cabo. But not everyone wishes to be in a smaller vessel and this deluxe double decker open-air motorized catamaran easily glides through the tropical waters, bringing you along for the ride. Whether you choose to be on the lower level with a great view or up on top above everything, your sailing will be special. The lower level offers some shade and is done in the style of a saloon whereas the upper deck has an open air bar/lounge area offering the views as well as fresh air and the warmth of the sun.

The boat itself is outfitted to cater to larger groups though it is never at capacity. Your breakfast will be cooked on board and served fresh from the kitchen. As you settled in, you will head for Cabo's famous Arch towards one end of the city's beautiful coastline. Start with a great cup of coffee followed by a selection of dishes that may include choices of waffles, scrambled eggs, chilaquiles, beans and more. Fresh juice is available but you can also expect great mimosas and Bloody Marys. There are other complimentary drinks to choose from.

Your crew is dedicated to adhering to the guidelines used for whale watching and will respectfully cruise as close as allowed for you to watch these mammals at play. Marine naturalists are aboard the vessel to talk about the life cycle of the whales and answer all your questions. Hopefully you will see some humpbacks, grey whales, and even some fin whales or orcas in these waters.

But all is not serious as those great drinks kick in and you are ready to enjoy some local music. Love for the ocean and dedication to service makes this excursion successful for all.
