It was important to us to have an educational tour where we would learn about these amazing mammoths in their own habitat. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Walking into the office they already knew who we were and it being a small group we got to ask any questions without issue. Our guide, Frank, and the... More

Philipp runs a very customer focused tour organization. Frankie, the naturalist, has a wealth of knowledge and shares it throughout his tours. We took 2 tours with them - an 8:00 am Cabo Humpback tour on Sunday 1/31/16 and a 2 day Magdalena Bay overnight adventure on Monday 2/1/16. This is our second year that we have experienced the CaboTrek... More

I had a great day seeing the whale sharks as well as the country side outside Cabo San Lucas on the way to La Paz. Phillip was informative and fun, while catering to the wants and needs of our small group. The fact that it was coupled with the Whale Shark Reserch Project marine biologists made it possible for me... More

Excellent, the tour guide was well informed and did everything he could to find whales. We had a whale sing under out boat for about a half hour. You could hear him without any amplifying equipment. a perfect day, it was on my bucket list

Frankie took us to the best places where we saw tons of whales. Got great photos, since Frankie is also a professional photographer. Lupe the captain was superb. This is the best thing we did in Los Cabos.

Thanks for leaving a kind review for others who may be visiting Cabo! I believe you were trying to say Cabo Trek is the best whale watching ever, but maybe made a typo. Thanks for joining us and I hope to see you again! More

We booked our tour with Cabo Trek long before our trip. We went out the second day in Cabo. It was a beautiful day and by the end of the two hours we had seen whales swimming next to us blowing and coming up slowly for air, one full breech, four huge head bangs, a few tail slaps and a... More

We are so glad you came back the second day for even more action! We wish that all of our guests could see breaches, tail slaps and the more aggressive behaviors, but it is not always possible on one tour. For this reason we recommend taking two tours to better the chance of seeing these huge animals completely breaching out... More

Thank you Frankie, our experienced & knowledgable naturalist for providing us with facts & stories about the humpbacks and other Baja whales. We were lucky to follow a mother & her one yr old calf for quite a while as the calf was frolicking, unthreatened by our traveling alongside. Until a giant dinner cruise boat starting following at rapid speed,... More

Frankie works really hard to share his knowledge of these animals with all of our tour guests. As well, not many of the whale watching boats here in Los Cabos are diligent in following the rules set by OWC, especially the larger booze cruises which are not even supposed to be allowed within 1000 feet of the whales!
