Default Whale Watching vs Los Archos Tour?

I have gotten lots of great ideas for my excursions from this board; thanks everyone!

In Cabo, Princess offers narrated boat tours of Los Archos (I think they use a tape of Cousteau), as well as the whale watching excursions, which "cruise by" the arches and go on to the whales. Actually, I would like to experience a combination of both adventures, and wouldn't mind a little bit of swimming as well.

I am considering an informal (not cruise sponsored) glass bottom boat tour at the pier - but can somone tell me if they offer some sort of narrative of Los Archos, and if whales can be spotted from these boats as well?

I have gone on many whale watching excursions in New England (Provincetown MA) so I don't really want to spend the entire time tracking whales, but would like to see a few.

We saw the whales just cruising past Cabo (this was in February), so I think you should be in luck by just being on board the ship.

On the glass bottom boats on the pier, the guide will point out the sights but not much in-depth talk ... more sight-seeing. But that's always been enough for us.

We went on the Pride's whalewatch tour in Cabo last February, and it was a great trip. We didn't have to go anywhere. They were right out side the harbor, and we saw then immediately, so our whale time was greater. There were some small boats nearby, I think a small cabin cruiser or two were probably private charters and cost less that the $79 or $89 we paid for Carnival. Not sure the glass bottom boats would do but I don' t see why not. A combination cruise with either type should be possible. I think you could get dropped off at Los Archos and take a taxi boat back to dock for not much money.
