Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Brian and Juan were an excellent team on our sunset cruise. They were kind to take pictures of our big group of 14 and made sure everyone was safe on the boat and made it back to our travel accommodations safely as well. I would definitely recommend and book them again.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
