We have visited Cabo many times and have done many types of whale watching adventures (zodiac boats, catamarans, pirate ship, etc.). We keep going back to Ocean Riders! The staff is very knowledgeable, super fun, and friendly! Alexandra was a great tour guide and photographer. The zodiac boats are fast and get you close to the action. Tons of fun!

We booked through Ocean Riders, because the are a safe, responsible and environmentally friendly whale watching tour. The boat ride in itself was so much fun. You do get a little wet, but the speed going out to the open sea is thrilling. You take a trip to see the Cabo Arch and the seals lying around there and then... More

5 of us went on this whale watching tour and had an amazing time! Our instructor was very knowledgeable about the whales and their migration, and we were able to find several whales in several different spots in a reasonable amount of time. Plus she took pictures for us with a good camera, so we could just sit and enjoy... More

We took Ocean Rider's two hour whale watching tour on a small zodiac style boat that seated sixteen....fourteen guests and two crew: Luis and Alejandra. We suited up and then motored out of the bay and first to El Arco. Then we checked out the sea lions and the beautiful arch at Land's End. Then Luis cranked up the boat... More

We took the zodiac raft- up to 60 miles and hour jumping through the waves to find the humpback and grey whales as well as porpoises. We saw it all and had a blast while our hosts took pics we could buy by DVDs-only wish they would print the pics and sell individually as we didn't want the whole DVDs.... More

My wife and I took a two hour whale watching tour, what an amazing trip! Right from the start we seen a mother and baby hump back with an escort male hump back.

Returned from Cabo just last night, and whale watching with Ocean Riders was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We went out on one of the 14 passenger Zodiac boats and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Our guide Alessandro was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. If you want a fast ride go with Captain Marco! We... More
