We had such a fantastic time on our whale watching tour. We got to see Cabo highlights like the arch, the sea lions, etc. the highlight of course was seeing the whales. We had LOTS of whale action and it was a thrilling experience. We were a group of four adults and four kids (ages 2, 5 and 6 years old) and they were super sweet about us having young ones. One of our kids did get pretty sea sick about halfway through, but held it together and is raving about the trip. The captain and guide were very knowledgeable and got us super close - the whales were going right next to the boat! We learned so much along the way. It was an experience we’ll never forget - and a special thanks to our sweet guide for taking fabulous pictures of the whales and our group during the adventure. Highly recommend this company!

A very satisfying experience from start to finish! Easy to book and ask questions in advance. Our whale-watching tour included a pause at the Arch for photos as well as an explanation of the other rock formations in the area. Angelika was our experienced guide and Adrian our Boat Captain. They were both very friendly and accommodating. We saw at least 10 humpback whales during our excursion including one that swam directly underneath our boat! Angelika captured some amazing photos and go-pro video which was available for purchase for an extra $50 USD. Well worth the price to have such great photos to remind us of our memorable day. We also got to listen to 2 different whales vocalize as they carry a hydrophone on board. I highly recommend this tour and this tour company!!

We went on the whale watching tour Jan 6 th had a very good start ,small group saw the arch seal lions ect then headed out to sea where we followed and saw many whales great experience but then came across a young whale wrapped in fishing nets and in obvious distress our guide was obviously shockedcand distressed and wanted to help.
Our group had no problems in abandoning our tour and we tracked and followed this whale for over an hour until the cabo trek team sent out their specialist team to try to save the whale.
We headed back to the shore as the mood had changed after we saw the bad side off fishing!
We checked Facebook that evening and fantastic news after hours with the whale they managed to release the whale safely.
Absolute 100% respect to cabo trek for not just being a tour guide but actually caring for the wildlife thanks to our guide and driver
Thank you cabo trek

With only eight guests on this tour, we were able to move about the boat for better views. There was no crowding (yeah!!).

Vanussa was our guide and she did a great job of pointing out whales, dolphins, marlin, and other marine wildlife. Our boat captain was Felix (if memory serves me); quite possibly one of the best boat drivers in Cabo.

Although Cabo Trek's website suggests the need for a jacket or wet weather gear, we were quite comfortable in shorts, sun hats, and tee shirts. Perhaps days with rougher seas might require different clothes.

Take your camera.

We thoroughly enjoyed this excursion and would readily book with Cabo Trek again.

Outstanding experience. We saw at least 10 whales. Hung with a pod of three for nearly an hour. Saw two whales breach in unison. The captain really knew how to find and stay with the whales.

This is our kind of excursion, max 10 people, relatively personal, knowledgable guides and a lot of sightings. We thoroughly enjoyed the ride, getting a close-up look at Los Arcos and the adjacent geology, the attendant wildlife, and, of course, the humpback whales. We encountered whales almost immediately, and throughout the remainder of the tour. The captain and guide did a nice job of getting close, but not too close, being respectful of the animals. This is not always the case with tour operators and was very much appreciated. Overall, an excellent experience which we would highly recommend. Thank you Angelica and Manuel.

Loved watching the whales “fighting” and learning all about humpback whales!

Vanusso was our marine biologist and she was very informative.

Absolutely fantastic- intimate- professional- eco- chic- and monumentally memorable whale watching expedition!!! Loved our female marine biologist tour guide. She's for sure not a tour guide- she's a small group scientific expedition leader who is kind, warm and friendly! Not a run of the mill guide you get in Cabo honey! Trust me- I've met them! And NO I'm not paid by anyone. I promise. The reviews here are real because this is how I picked this excursion for me and my husband. We are fairly savvy when it comes to travel and we have seen a lot. We saw INCREDIBLE whale breeches by mamas and babies - which seems to be rare. I almost cried and so did the guide. Mind blowing. Tip well because they deserve well. They are not in the business for anyone but the joy of nature, preservation and showing humans how to see it right.

I would not go with any other company. This is my second whale watching tour with Cabo Trek. I am so impressed with how knowledgeable and ethical they are. I absolutely loved hearing how they are helping with migrations.

Outstanding in every way possible

Tour guide Valusa paid special attention to my wife by announcing everything in English and portugese. Valuable went out of her way to make this event very special

Our Captain Freddy was equally outstanding

Their knowledge of the Whales is second to none

I must add that Valussa has a major in Marine Biology

Just Incredible On Every Level

I wish I could give her 10 stars instead of 5

Did I forget to mention we saw close to 25 Whales in about 2 hours besides the Sea Lion Tour we were given

Thanks again

Job well done
