Guide (sadly can’t recall her name) and captain Freddy were absolutely amazing. She has an encyclopedic knowledge of whales. Captain Freddy was on top of things - quick to spot whales, respectful to keep a distance safe for the whales, and head on a swivel to keep us safe from other boats (many of which weren’t so respectful of distance). And we saw SO MANY WHALES, including several babies. Strongly recommend.

It just doesn’t get any better!
Becca_T, Feb 2024
Upon arriving, we soon realized that we had fumbled our reservation which could have resulted in a forfeiture. Marie very calmly and kindly handled the situation and before we knew it we were getting on a boat. Marie you are my new super hero! We boarded Captain Miguel’s lovely boat and right away we’re floating next to the arch, secluded beaches, sea lions and whales with babies. Miguel was respectful of the animals around us and drove accordingly. Our marine biologist, Vanuza actually had named many of the whales after repeated sightings. We learned so much and even got to listen to the songs they sing with an underwater microphone! All in all a wonderful experience.

We are here celebrating the wedding of our friends and started with a Whale Watching trip. Vanuza, our guide, and Adrian, our Captain, were excellent! We learned so much, had a great boating experience and the whales were just breath taking! Highly Recommend!

Perfect weather, perfect crew and whales a plenty!
Michael_S, Feb 2024
Great experience! Angelika is extremely knowledgeable marine biologist and the boat captain has an eagle-eye for spotting the whale pods. We encounter several during our 2+1/2 Hour excursion. Appreciated being on a smaller boat with (10) guests total. The whales came closer to the boat. It was awesome! Thank you CaboTrek🌞

Whale watching fun
Sharon_N, Feb 2024
Guide, boat captain and boat were all perfect for the outing. Getting a photo op at the arches was unexpected and perfect for some great pics. The whale and dolphin watching made the day!

Beautiful Trip Whalespotting
Tricia_M, Feb 2024
We loved our experience with Angelica and Freddie! They were great at spotting the whales and providing a safe experience. We enjoyed learning more about the whales and asking Angelica questions about the whales and the surrounding ecosystem. Pictures for purchase were a reasonable price for high quality.

Excellent memorable experience
Cynthia_H, Feb 2024
Andrea was excellent, very knowledgeable, fun and enthusiastic. She even put a device in the water so we could hear the whales singing to each other. We saw Mana, dolphins in addition to many humpbacks. Perfect lady!

Finally , we saw WHALES
Cynthia_L, Jan 2024
We had lots of whale sightings. Possibly saw up to 9 different whales. We were unable to use the hydrophone because of the all the boats. Our captain was great following all the signs. There were a lot of other tour boats out there. So it was a little crowded.

Whale watching on the Pacific Ocean
Madeline_L, Jan 2024
Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided information about the whales that I did not know. Our captain was skillful and we saw about 20 whales. We have been on whale watches off the northeast coast of the USA and this trip was the most informational and exciting trip we have experienced. Plus I always felt safe on the boat which was very important to me as we were far from the coast on the Pacific Ocean

Whatever of an experience
Herb_A, Jan 2024
Excellent narrative by our marine biologist. We had a small group of 4 so it all was very personalized. We did see quite a fee hump back whales and got some good videos.

Face to face with a humpback whale!
Nicky_S, Jan 2024
Amazing experience on a small boat with Angelica, marine biologist and pilot, Adrian! They were very respectful of the whales, not getting too close, and we saw 2 to 3 groups of 4/5 whales on a number of occasions. Later in the trip we found a quiet spot and one whale swam under and around our boat then popped its head up right next to the boat as if to say hello! A once in a lifetime experience! Angelica was very informative and also took incredible photos which were for sale afterwards.

Great trip with Anjelica and Freddie! We saw several groups of humpbacks and Anjelica gave us so much information about them. We would definitely recommend Cabo Trek and would use them again.

Nice relaxing tour
UncleL, Jan 2024
This was a nice relaxing tour. The tour guide was informative about whale life and activity. We were able to see 2 active whales jumping out of the water. Great for young kids/ teenagers.
