Absolutely fabulous staff. Special thanks to Sanda in the tour office in Puerto Piramidas; that woman deserves a raise. Went above and beyond to ensure I had a fantastic experience seeing whales. Everything was great; the boat, the guides, the price. Highly recommend!

We did the Sunset Whale tour. After passing the lobo's nearby the Piramid, we went pretty far out of the bay to see the whales by sunset. It was very cold because of the strong wind, make sure you wear warm clothes. Both english and...More
