Wonderful Whale Watching Tour w/ Surprise Guests - Orcas!
Apr 2021
We reached out last minute via WhatsApp, and although the whale watching season had officially come to an end, the team was willing to take us out but set the expectation that we may not see much.

Boy, were we surprised. We saw so many amazing marine giants! The whales were incredible. We saw quite a few and loved calling out FIN, FIN! Even more amazing were the Orcas we spotted. Our captain, Freddy, was able to get us super close. These beautiful Orcas were RIGHT next to our boat and two even swam under us! The boat ride was the perfect mix of relaxing on the water and having exhilarating moments of joy. Silvia, our guide, was incredible.

This was an amazing experience from start to finish (validated parking, clean restrooms, etc.) I would recommend it to anyone, and I really appreciated the amazing people at CaboTrek. They truly made this an extra special trip for us! Thank you :)

Close encounter of the whale kind
Apr 2021
This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Although this was the end of the whale season, we were fortunate enough to see a mother and juvenile whale. The juvenile humpback whale breached three times and was showing off for the boat. We were right in the action.

Extraordinarily satisfied.
Mar 2021
My wife and I had a very enjoyable time. While Silvia, the marine biologist, spoke to us about the nature of the whales and their habitat, Captain Freddy worked to keep the boat in a position that provided for the best possible cameral angles for those on board. The whales were very active that day and breached dozens of times. The excursion exceeded our wildest hopes. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Experience of a lifetime!
Mar 2021 • Family
Our experience was absolutely amazing! We saw so many whales it was hard really to count them. Our captain and guide got us near one particular mother and calf that turned out to be an experience of a lifetime. The calf kept jumping out of the water and must’ve done it 20 times. The information that the guide provided was extremely interesting and we learned quite a few things that we didn’t know before. My review does not adequately express how much of an experience of a lifetime this was. Highly recommended!

Amazing experience!
Mar 2021
This was an amazing experience! Even though it's near the end of the season, we saw quite a few whales, both adults & babies, and even got to hear two males singing. Our guide, Cecilia, was very knowledgeable about both the whales & the area in general, so we learned a lot. This is a top notch company from booking to visit (had to reschedule due to rough weather, but everything was handled professionally & smoothly). Hoping to come back to Cabo some time, & we will definitely book another tour with them!

Mar 2021 • Couples
An enjoyable evening on the sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean. Our crew was superb, professional, and knowledgeable! We were rewarded with an amazing breaching whale about 40 minutes into our cruise which was simply incredible. I would highly recommend this excursion on your visit to Cabo!

Amazing whale watching experience for our family! Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable, fun and laid back. She had a lot of knowledge of whales and the local area. We saw so many humpback whales being playful on the surface along with other popular sites and animals.

100% we will recommend Cabo Trek to all our friends.

Sustainable whale watching!!
Wow, what a great tour. Our guide, Cecilia, and captain, Freddy, were absolutely incredible. So much skill and knowledge. Cecilia taught our kids a ton about humpback whales and the ocean in general. She was the perfect guide. When they advertise a learning experience, the tour certainly did not disappoint.

Cabo Trek does a phenomenal job. They provide an amazing experience, and give back to help with conservation efforts and rescuing wounded whales.

If you want to enjoy a great tour AND know you're helping (in some small way) sustain these amazing creatures, we highly recommend Cabo Trek. A top notch company from booking to visit. We looking forward to booking another tour with them, when we come back!!

WONDERFUL ADVENTURE!!!!
Mar 2021
What an amazing experience we had with our tour guy Pepe and Captain Fred!!!
We saw so many whales and learned so much while on the adventure! Both were so knowledgeable , showing such appreciation and respect for the ocean and whales as well. I LOVED doing our own thing...not just following other boats speeding to see a spout, then followed by 20 other boats. Captain Fred took us on our OWN adventure, far away from the crowds...truly a wonderful experience.

I HIGHLY recommend CABOTREK...a great great adventure. Thank you so much.

February Whale Watching Adventure
Feb 2021
5 stars is not enough to rate our Humpback Whale watching adventure. Our guide was Pepe Jarra who was extremely knowledgeable, interactive and hilarious! His guidance did not disappoint as we were able to get up close to a number of gray and humpback whales. Freddy, our captain, kept us safe and made sure our ride was as smooth and enjoyable as possible. If you are looking for an informative trip and amazing pictures, make sure to request Pepe!
