About
Gray whale watching in Magdalena Bay is a unique opportunity for seeing these animals in their natural environment. There's no other place on this planet where Gray Whales can be experienced as in Lopez Mateos! A part of the encounter with the animal, the surrounding bay is still an untouched piece of land worthy of being discovered: mangroves and sand dunes are home to over 200 different species of birds. This is a great 2-day excursion for real adventurous nature lovers.

Unforgetable experience
Feb 2020
My wife and I had the most amazing 2 days up in Magdalena Bay,its difficult to know where to start, but everything met are expectations and more, we went on 2 trips out to see the Gray whales and found ourselves surrounded by Gray whales and their calves. Katia our guide and marine biologist was very knowledgeable and informative, always happy to answer any questions the small group of 8 were constantly asking her. They were always respectful and kept a safe distance from the whales,but at times had no control on how close to the boat these beautiful creatures came, one inquisitive whale even came up to the boat for a closer view of us all. We found everyone so friendly, the captain of the boat and all his family who provided the overnight accommodation and meals, and Victor who drove us up and back, and was always there to tell you more about Mexico and its people. Great trip, well worth the money...tahnk you Cabotrek

Best Whale-Watching Ever!
Feb 2020
We have whale watched around the world, including the Arctic. This was by far the best experience we've ever had. We saw so many grey whales, up close and personal, that we lost count. We had moms and calves next to and under the boat. We had adults asking to be touched, as well as others breaching, spyhopping, and following us.

Our Cabotrek team was awesome--Victor, Katya, and captain Saul and his family. They took great care of us and were very knowledgeable. The food was homey and plentiful. The lodging was very barebones so don't expect much there but think of this as an expedition or adventure and you'll be fine. The drive from Cabo was long but there were plenty of stops, snacks, and drinks.

If you are a whale fan and want to get up close and personal with grey whales, do this trip! You won't regret it!

If Only I Used These Guys More! One of my Best Experiences.
Feb 2019 • Solo
Cabo Trek was perfect in every way! Sadly, I used them only once - had I known they were going to be that good, I would have used them for the whole vacation! It is a small operation but by being small, they offer great customer service and attention. They limit the numbers on tour for that reason and I really regret using them once only.

Immediate tips

- Cabo Trek has 3 websites. My mistake was seeing the whale shark trip on one site and when I went to book it, I mistakenly looked at the wrong site and didn't see it available. I went elsewhere and regret it immensely.

- even though only a few tours are advertised (only 2 grey whale tours per season for example), they will put on more if demand is there. They are a small company so very flexible and can do much more than their website says.

- the site advised to take a light jacket and a sweater. They mean to take both, not 1 or the other! I had a sweatshirt and shorts - while great when the sun shone, it was pretty chilly first thing in the morning.

On to my Grey (Gray) Whale trip. We were 6 in total, 4 guests, a photographer/driver and a marine biologist/guide. We set off early in the morning from Cabo. First stop was breakfast at a wonderful restaurant to pick up a burrito and coffee (great food and a good start to the trip). Reaching our small, simple but truly wonderful hotel, we had lunch and set off for our first trip to see the whales. I cannot be more pleased with this tour! Magnificent does not describe it for me! 6 of us and the boat captain saw at least 50 whales all around us, we interacted with some of them as they swam right up to us. The captain and guide kept finding more and more and even they were excited. So much so, we were supposed to be out for 2 hours but it became close to 3 because so much was going on. By far one of the best life experiences I have ever had - this was about my 7th whale watching trip and it surpassed all of them put together, it was that good. Excitedly, we got back to the hotel, and chatted, drank and ate for some hours reliving the experience. Cabo Trek even provided wine with the meal, all soft drinks and beer.

The next day, there were 11 of us in the boat (not 6) but it was much calmer and we could see spouts and whales from a long way off. Again, we drifted here and there looking at the whales and once we were near the entrance of the bay, it all kicked off again - breaches, flukes, swim-bys! Even though a great trip again, it really could not match the memorable first afternoon. Back to the hotel for lunch and sadly, off we went back to Cabo.

The boat captain, Saul, was magnificent - a singing fisherman whose family ran the hotel and kitchens, even the young son helped out. The feeling throughout the trip was that of personal attention, friendship and people wanting us to have a great experience. Saul even joined us for breakfast and we all chatted, he was not just the captain, he was our friend! I can say exactly the same for the Cabo Trek staff, it felt like we went on holiday as a group, not as customers and guides. Because of this, we all got on well together and made 2 days feel so, so much longer and better.

Do I have anything negative? Well, if I said the car journey (5 hours each way) was a little uncomfortable, I suppose that would be it - at 5ft 11ins, sitting at the back was a problem but that's the luck of the draw. The other seats were far roomier and maybe we could have rotated seats, something to suggest maybe?

Cabo Trek is amazing!
Feb 2019 • Friends
We spent a week in the Cabo area and Cabo Trek was our guides to many adventures. The grey whale adventure could not have been better, what an amazing experience. Phillip and Anna are so much fun and know the area well. It was truely authentic and not your basic tourist tour! Love it all!

A Bucket list checked off.
Feb 2018 • Friends
I had wanted to do this since I was a young boy and it is done. Mari and Katia, two fun loving and knowledgeable women made the trip a fun learning experience and showed pure exuberance toward the whales. The accommodations were bare-boned but we all were so tired after a day of TOUCHING AND PETTING THE WHALES that everyone slept like logs.

Thanks for your review! We are glad you had a good tour. The Magdalena Bay gray whale experience is a wonderful occasion to get to know baja california sur in depth! We know the accommodations are nothing like the 5 star hotels in Cabo, but we think we found a good compromise by choosing a cozy family run bad&breakfast with excellent fresh sea food that adds that extra Mexican touch to this trip. Petting the gray whale is a unique experience happening only in Baja California Sur and it seems you had a whale of a tour! We are surely looking forward to have you on our excursion soon again, check out the other tours we have available, all of them are guided by marine biologist and/or naturalist and with the same quality you've experienced during your whale watching trip. Thanks again :-)!!

A wonderful experience
Feb 2018 • Couples
This is truly an experience to remember. We have just returned to Toronto and still think about what we had seen. Both girls who were Biologists, Katia, and Mari made our trip with there knowledge and kindness. The accommodation is very simple and the family that runs this motel are very kind and accommodating. But you are not there for the accommodation but the journey. Thank you Philipp for making this happen for us you are one of the most honest business person in Mexico. Your safety and your tour experience is truly a very important factor for CaboTrek. Keep up the good work you do an exceptional job.
