As my friends know, I am never at a loss for words, but, this day--with the humpback whales, sea turtles, sea lions, sail fish, seals, pelicans and other tropical birds--took my breath away.

I am very glad Cabo Trek could be part of your incredible day! Your tour was our first and only sailfish sighting this season, as it patrolled along the surface feeding. Our professional captain Gilberto and guide Frankie work very well together to not only find active whales, but to share with our guests what these animals are actually doing.... More

Cabo has been our vacation destination for 15 years and until we met marine biologist Frankie Grant we avoided whale watch excursions. Frankie's photos captured our love and respect for ocean life so it made perfect sense to join a marine biologist on a whale watch excursion. Gratefully we followed our intuition and were not disappointed. The captain was respectful... More

Thanks for your kind words. I’m sure they are helpful to others who may be coming to Cabo. It really means a lot to us that we could show a Cabo veteran something they haven’t seen before! It is our goal to change people’s perceptions of what high quality whale watching means. The combination of our guide understanding the behavior... More

Booked a mid morning excursion with Cabo Trek to view humpbacks and wasn't disappointed. We were treated to a lesson in nearly every whale behaviour as a humpback mother demonstrated the art of breaching, spy hopping and pectoral fin flapping to her calf who then went on to practice his new skills for the next 30 minutes. In total we... More

Thanks for joining us for some educational whale watching in sunny Cabo San Lucas! During February and March many of our tours end up witnessing a real show as mothers teach calves all of the interesting behaviors humpbacks display. We find that if you respect the space of the whales, they are much more curious and will sometimes approach our... More

Sounds like you had an awesome first scuba diving experience! We wish more people understood that it really is an activity for almost everyone. Scuba instructor, Jacopo does a great job explaining the basics of scuba diving to keep everyone safe and having a good time. As well, as you experienced, we limit the groups to maximum of 4 people... More

After confirming several times that it was safe to take our 8 month old and 3 year old out to see the whales, we scheduled a tour with Cabo Trek for 8 am. We were running late and they were nice enough to wait on us. I was having a mini heart attack about bringing the kids on the way... More

Two thumbs up for leaving such an awesome review for others who may be travelling to Cabo. This is a question our guests sometimes ask and I’m glad you addressed it. Our 32’ foot super panga is very safe, even for children. We find that most of the time, the lull of the ocean tends to rock young ones right... More

While the first boat had a mechanical problem, a replacement quickly arrived and as Frankie promised, we got our full time.

My husband and I booked the 8:00am trip this morning. Frankie was our guide and he and our great Captain should be nicknamed the "Whale Whisperers" !

Frankie was the best guide! Very informative and we saw Mother, baby and escort humpbacks. I spotted a juvenile tail slapping in the distance and we headed over for great pics and video! We purchased the disc of pics that Frankie took, they were beautiful.

I had an awesome time whale watching. The tour included a marine biologist, Frank, who was awesome and provided information about the whales and their behavior.

I would definitely recommend Cabo Trek to anyone who is thinking about going... More
