Could've skipped this tour
Feb 2020
We did the afternoon sailing which is very interactive, the content is questionable for children and dinner is not memorable. If you're into having shots poured down your throat and inappropriate rap songs being played at a very high volume, this is the one. Some of the "pirates" got intoxicated while performing, didn't alert us when there were whales around and just tried too hard to facilitate fun, Overall wish we had picked a different tour on a different boat for the price.

Great adventure, wonderful fun & great atmosphere
Feb 2020
Booked as alternative to expensive TUI trips, and very glad we did, well organised, fun morning adventure looking for whales, great atmosphere on board. Great value, includes tasty breakfast & drinks in the price. I can highly recommend this trip. The team onboard really work hard to ensure you have a great trip even if the whales are little reluctant to show themselves.

Great time!
Feb 2020 • Family
Went on the morning sail ! Crew was friendly. Happy to serve you breakfast and drinks the whole duration. Unfortunately I found a dark hair in my scrambled eggs but it didn’t stop the fun we had. Saw many whales. My only advice is to turn down the background music when you are talking about the whales. Hard to hear and understand. Thanks!!

Great whale-watching trip!
Jan 2020
Our group of 8 had a wonderful time on our 9 AM whale-watching on the Bucaneer Queen. A full breakfast of pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs, and fruit juices was available. There was also a full bar with frozen drinks like pina coladas and mango daicquiris, together with lots of soda choices as well. The best part was the whale watching ---- we followed a pair of humpbacks heading north for a couple miles up the west coast of the Baja peninsula starting across from Divorce Beach. These 2 whales breached, head slapped, and pectoral fin slapped over 14 times! No lie, no exaggeration! I've seen humpbacks in Hawaii and Alaska and have never seen a display like the one seen on this ship. The crew was very customer-oriented --- always clearing dishes, getting drinks, and interacting with the passengers. The master-of-ceremonies entertained us on the way back to the dock. I highly recommend this whale-watch company.

Super Fun!
Jan 2020 • Friends
The experience of being on this ship is one of a kind! Our expert captain made sure to get us the best views despite a plethora of other boats trying to do the same- the crew aboard were kind and courteous, and you could tell that some of them absolutely loved their job as they would make jokes and have funny antics all along the way. The Arch was slightly disappointing as we were not able to get too close but what we missed in closeness to the arch, we made up for in front row seats to a pod of whales, dolphins and seals. Would definitely go again. :)
