Overview
See humpback whales in Cabo San Lucas on a whale watching tour led by marine biologist guides. Cruise past the Arch and the sea lion colony and then head away from shore to search for the migrating humpback whales, listening for whale song on an onboard hydrophone. Group size is limited to 10 for personal service from the marine biologist guides, who share fascinating whale facts and background throughout the tour.
Highlights
  • Whale watching tour in Cabo San Lucas
  • Marine biologist guides talk about whale migration, courtship, and calving
  • Small-group tour limited to 10 people, with private tour options available

What to Expect
Make your way to the Cabo San Lucas marina and then meet the marine biologist guides aboard the whale watching vessel.

As you cruise, learn more about humpback whales, listening for whale song from below the waves.

Beautiful day on the water. Saw many humpback whales. The marine biologist on board was very informative and made the trip that much more enjoyable.

We took the tour after doing some research and wanting one which felt more authentic. Our experience was good - the boat wasn’t too crowded and we saw whales. It was nice to see lands end, the beaches and we were lucky enough to see sea lions too. Thanks for an enjoyable

Our family (young kids and teens) had a blast whale watching! We ended up having a private tour with an awesome marine biologist (Angelica), and got to see dolphins and whales close up, and took home amazing photos. Truly a once in a lifetime experience! I would HIGHLY recommend

I was looking for an ethical business to go whale watching with as many of the other companies are styled as buffet/booze cruises, which really didn’t appeal, and have questionable practices such as throwing bread in the water to attract fish for snorkellers. Cabo trek didn’t

Thanks for your review! We wish we could offer you a better tour: I honestly can't explain any better than you did in your review why they day was a bit too quiet. But checking on the date of when your review was posted, my best guess is that all the worries about the Corona Virus pandemia news must have affected the humor in our team: in fact those were our last days of work as we had to anticipate the ending of the season. We apologize and will try to make things better next time. We hope you'll give us another chance and are 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 trip. Thanks again :-)!!
