It was wonderful the trip to see the whales. We saw several whales and a baby with his mother 🐳. Guillermo is a very enthusiastic guide, which makes the trip even more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

We got what we went for. We saw lots of beautiful whales very close to us, we even heard a male whale communicating with other whales, I could not believe it. Guillermo is outstanding and very generous. He definitely knows what he is doing.
