Our Mission

Another Reason to Love the Ocean

Cabo Trek LogoAt Cabo Trek, we work to further the understanding and appreciation of the world by re-establishing our connection with mother nature.

Cabo Trek works diligently towards creating a common consciousness and understanding of the oceans and we strive to make a difference in this world by interacting with it with responsibility and humanity.

This means operating as one of the leading responsible whale watching operations in all of Los Cabos, maintaining a safe distance both for the whales, their calves, and our customers, and educating customers on ways they can help, be it donations, petitions, green thinking and more.

The Baja California Sur region has the largest humpback whale population in the Pacific and each year they journey all the way to our beautiful coasts, making it one of the most awe-inspiring times of the year.

A close encounter with these majestic creatures is sure to make your trip unforgettable.

It is through our whale watching tours that we achieve our mission – giving you another reason to love the ocean and furthering your understanding and appreciation of it.

Climb aboard and let’s get trekking!

Our team is comprised of genuinely talented and Earth-loving people.

Working as a biologist and a dive instructor at Cabotrek is a unique opportunity where I can experience, observe, research, and be an ambassador for wildlife.

CaboTrek was founded by Philipp Moser, a true world trekker who has lived and worked in many exotic locations such as Thailand, Nigeria, and different parts of Central America. He’s a professional and energetic Austrian entrepreneur with lots of passion for the ocean and the environment. He first came to Cabo in 2011 for a planned “short period of time”, but amazed with the surrounding natural beauty, decided to make it his permanent home. For this reason he created CaboTrek. Supported by an incredible team of incredible people who share his same vision, passion, and enthusiasm for the oceans and great outdoors.

Adriana Galindo de Moser is a good person to have in your corner. You might not see her around the shop very often, but without her this project would not have been possible. She plays a very important rule in the whole organization of Cabo Trek handling important essentials like public relations, communications, operations management and last but not least moral support. The baby (Valentina) in her hands is our biggest motivation to get up in the morning and give our best each and every day!
