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 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!

Superbly organized with timely reminders and exceptionally friendly/knowledgeable staff.

We had a great time on a private tour, saw a bunch of whales and our captain/biologist patiently worked their network to find where a whale was very playful with multiple breaching and flipper slapping.

CaboTrek's whale watching tour was one of the best adventures we had in Cabo! Our 2.5 hour tour was incredible - small group (11 on boat plus captain in guide), extremely knowledgeable guide (we learned things about whales, Cabo, the ocean, and other sea life we never knew - and we considered ourselves knowledgeable before our tour!), and up close views of whales. I would recommend this tour for anyone visiting Cabo during whale season - it brought goose bumps to our arms and tears to our eyes to be so up close and personal to the Mother and baby whales. We saw at least 8 different pods on our tour. Also extremely affordable - well worth twice or three times the price!
