Travel onboard with a marine biologist, who will provide commentary on the humpback whales as you go.

    Cabo was beautiful. If you visit, be sure to take the sunset catamaran sailboat cruise. Good drinks and snacks and a beautiful ride. Your stay successful will depend a lot on your accommodations. Some are nicer than others. Be sure to read the reviews before booking. Downtown Cabo is interesting but somewhat intimidating with sales people hounding you as you walk and they are hard to avoid and don’t take no easily. But the beaches are terrific.

    If you're looking for a reputable, quality company to purchase excursions, Cabo Trek is the company you want to work with. The staff is knowledgeable, ethical and dependable. We spent a week in Cabo and used Cabo Trek for all of our excursions! Never had a problem! We even had marine biologists on our boats and their equipment was top notch.

    Our humpback whale watching adventure with Cabo Trek was the real deal. Vanuza, a marine biologist from Brazil, was incredible and we learned a ton about humpback whales, migration patterns, and the area. We spent over and hour traveling alongside a mother and baby humpback while Freddie, our captain navigated the at times choppy waters. Vanuza’s energy, enthusiasm and vast knowledge made this experience truly unforgettable. The boat and safety protocols were all on point as well. We highly recommend this experience and definitely ask for Vanuza!

    - Responsible towards the whales (kept 50m distance minimum) - Very knowledgeable guide - Extremely safe driving of the boat - Easy access from Carnival Cruise ship boat shuttles We recommend doing the 8am option because then you have time for a great lunch somewhere.

    We had a great time on this excursion. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was clean. It was a highlight of our trip.

    We did a private tour for whale watching and snorkeling (thank you for combining these two for us, so we could do it all!). Carlos was our guide and he is top notch - I highly recommend him! He was engaging and super knowledgeable. It was absolutely worth the cost and time spent to have the experience, and so nice to be able to do it just with out group of 5!

    Our experience was so much more than just whale watching. We were given a little education on the rock formations around Cabo. Then off we went looking for whales. We were fortunate enough to see a blue whale and several hump back whales one with their calf. For several minutes the calf took an interest in our boat and dived and swam around us surfacing to take us all. Was a magical and lucky experience to be so close to these majestic animals.

    Had a great time with Carlos (and Freddy at the wheel). Even on the late side of the season he found good sightings of two mature whale pairs and a group of dolphins. The tour gave us a great view of the coast and beaches from the Arch by Cabo San Lucas to halfway to San Jose del Cabo. We definitely appreciated the cover on a sunny day!

    Even though we were at the end of whale watching season our captain & guide were able to find a mother & baby & several male whales while we were out on our excursion. Always exciting to see, never gets old.

    I’ve always been a great fan of whales. to get to see them so close was truly amazing. Our tour guide was helpful in spotting multiple whales.
