What people are saying about Jalisco

Absolutely recommend this trip, it really is a responsible tour, unlike lots of other tours that just chase boats and in my opinion hound the whales, this is peaceful and respectful to the wildlife, no other boats in sight,we just stopped in the middle of the ocean and waited, the Whales came to us ,we were not disappointed. Tour guide and captain were very knowledgable and made the trip with the information about the whales and their patterns of behaviour. We had great views and even saw a male breach! Plus we saw turtles, mantas and dolphins. Hearing the whales sing was a wonderful and Memorable Experience .Hope the guide sends me the photos and video as Promised ??

A great day spent with our guide Jorge, who lives in the area of the tour. He knows everything about the pueblos just south of PV and is doing his part to help the wild macaws in the area. Would have liked to have spent more that 15 minutes in the main part of El Tuito - needed at least, but we had to keep to a schedule to fit in all the stops.

It was a great tour however for those not familiar with the area, a better description of the location would've been appreciated. I thought it would've been a meander through garden paths - there's also a strenuous jungle track that i needed better footwear for!

Hector was an informative, helpful and personable tour guide. We had a great day!

The crew was very knowledgeable and very fun to be with! We saw many whales!♥️
