Vanuza and Freddy the captain we’re awesome! They did a great job. We had a great time and saw some whales. Vanuza was knowledgeable and her English is perfect. Freddy kept us a respectful distance from the whales but close enough to get some awesome photos of mother and calf fully breaching. It was fantastic.

Amazing
Rachelle_S

Trip was amazing. Small group of 6 out scouting whales. Captain and guide were well versed and conscientious of the whales and their turf. Were able to get close enough for an adrenaline rush, bit far enough away to not bother the whales. Such an incredible experience.

Fantastic voyage

This was a phenomenal experience! My photos were too large to upload in the pictures section, but we saw a ton of whales - humpback and dolphins! We also learned so much about Cabo and its beauty. I would highly recommend. I did the 8a.m. trek and it was cool, comfortable and fun! I would definitely do it again.

We saw lots of whales. The tour guide and boat driver let us stay out longer than usual because we were seeing so many. The boat ride was a little bumpy at times.

Watching the whales put on a show was a highlight! We only saw them from a short distance, but we saw many close up just breaking the surface followed by huge tail flaps! Very informative as well! Worth the cost!!! Freddy was a great captain!

Whale watching with Cabo Trek
Stephen_P
, Dec 2021
Wonderful trip. Angelica and the captain were efficient and resourceful in locating several whales within 30 minutes of the trip. Both went out of their way to pick up several pieces of plastic found on the way back, which speaks volumes to their work dedication. Would definitely recommend this trip.

The enthusiasm of our guide, Vanussa (spelling), was great! Everyone, including my granddaughter who is afraid of boats, had a wonderful time. We saw lots of whale tails and learned a lot from our guide. Highly recommended!,

Cabo Trek was fantastic
Ericka_B
, Dec 2021
Everything about this experience was great! Cabo Trek has marine biologists guiding this tour. Angelica was very friendly and informative, educating us about the whales and answering all of our questions. The captain was very friendly too and did a great job spotting the whales and bringing us to them. Angelica took beautiful pics allowing us to focus on the experience instead of our cameras. The bonus of Cabo Trek is their involvement in the whale rescue program and bringing a conservation aspect to the tour.

The boat was small for rough seas. The boat broke down. Back up took a half hour but the sea was to rough to transfer.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hi Susan, we are really sorry for the inconvenience. This typo of situation don't happen to often in our operation and trust me when I say that if there's a reliable, responsible company in Cabo that does not just do ordinary but also preventive maintenance on its equipment that would be Cabo Trek. As you would imagine we had a long time to get ready for the season and really took care of our boat and engine, but some times things happen and as a matter of fact the boat actually got fixed (the issue was fuel supply to the engine) and you all returned safely to the marina on the same boat. Again, we're sorry for the inconvenience. We hope to see you again soon.

Excellent trip, the guide was great. We were lucky to see several different whales, a few of them came feet away from the boat. Only recommendation take seasickness pills, the ocean is rough, and the boat is small.
