Our Staff Members

Our staff is multilingual, knowledgeable and what most importantly, they are friendly and sure to exceed your expectations. Cabo Whale Trek is proud to be the only company that can offer tours in English, Spanish, German and Italian. Cabo Whale Trek also prides itself on offering educational tours led by a U.S. university-trained marine biologist.

Before the Tour

The day of your tour you will meet in our office and storefront 15 minutes prior to the time of your tour. While in the shop we’ll process your payment, snap a few photos of you and your group for your free Cabo Whale Trek souvenir, and allow you time to shop around our storefront for any souvenirs and read up on some of the educational activities you’ll be partaking in that day. We offer free wi-fi, cookies, coffee, water and a comfy couch to rest on before everyone is ready to head to the dock.

Then we’ll take a quick 1 minute walk from the shop to the dock. There you’ll board our boat, put on your life vests, be given a complimentary bottle of water, and finally, set out on your whale trek adventure!

On Board

Your tour will begin with a trip to our famous Land’s End Arch. Here we’ll pause the boat ride for a brief moment to allow for pictures with the Arch and to explain our next destination, which is either out into the Pacific Ocean or out into the Sea of Cortez, depending on where the whales decide to play that day.

While out at sea your marine biologist guide will be busy spotting whales and educating guests on the whale behavior going on around you. Your trek biologist guide will also enlist the help of professional-grade hydrophones to see if the whales are communicating or “singing” below the surface and you may be the lucky customer that gets the rare opportunity to actually hear the whale songs live!

Also aboard every tour is our underwater video and camera system, which allows you to see the whales live and in action underwater. Your guide will place the audio and video equipment into the water, which then transmits live video and audio of whale activity to a monitor aboard the boat.

While you’re busying whale spotting and enjoying the educational whale watching tour, our professional wildlife photographer is busy capturing all the excitement! The wildlife photographer will be busy taking pictures as soon as we leave dock; that means he or she is busy capturing guests at Land’s End Arch, their excitement at the sight of whales and of course, the whales!

But who is driving the boat?! No worries, our experienced captain is busy at the wheel anticipating the next prime location for optimal whale watching and most importantly, ensuring we always maintain a safe and responsible distance from the whales.

When you book with Cabo Whale Trek you get guaranteed excellence, quality and attention to detail that can’t be found anywhere else.

After the Tour

2.5 hours later you’l have just experienced the whale watching and educational experience of a lifetime! We’ll head back to the dock and disembark. With guests in tow, our marine biologist and wildlife photographer will lead everyone back to the Cabo Whale Trek office and storefront. Upon return guests will be given their free Cabo Whale Trek picture souvenir and also have the opportunity to purchase photos or DVD’s from your tour and other Cabo Whale Trek souvenirs.
