Carlos was a wonderful tour guide we did the early tour in the morning which I think is worth it! The pictures also were a great value as we did not have an advanced camera. Our kids were sufficiently entertained and enjoyed all the facts and figures we learned!

Our whale watching tour in Cabo San Lucas was amazing! Capt Freddy, Angelika and Cecelia were fantastic. We were so fortunate to see so many humpbacks jumping, breaching and giving us pectoral fin waves. We also got to see a couple of young humpbacks learning how to jump! Angelika was so informative, and pointed out all the landmarks, shared stories about the area and provided a ton of education and information about marine mammals and marine wildlife. We also loved that Cabo Trek is dedicated to reducing waste and improving and cleaning up our oceans and planet. Absolutely wonderful experience - we would do it again in a heartbeat.

Our house had a great sea view so we saw whales everyday. This tour allowed us to see them up close. 7 whales and countless dolphins along the way. Whale went under our boat! Guide aka Lucy said our group had one of the best experiences possible so worth the money. December to April is the season. Lucy taught us a great deal about the whales during lull moments. Returned with lots of whale knowledge, good pics and great memories. Not pushy sales pitch to tip or buy pics. I would recommend.

AMAZING!!! The guides were knowledgeable - and we loved the fact that the whales’ and dolphins’ safety was of the utmost importance. We saw so many whales - babies juniors and adults. The guides gave us a lot of interesting facts that we had no idea of. WE WOULD GO AGAIN!!!

We saw many whale sharks and got to swim with four of them. The catamarans DNDO is we’re excellent. The staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. The title and description should be more clear that the tour is in La Paz with a 2 hour drive each way.

Great Intimate Experience; Knowledgeable Crew

Very happy with this experience - a smaller group. Of course - it is all up to mother nature but the crew searched and eventually found whales for us to see and see we did. But I really appreciate that the crew was knowledgeable and shares their research. Their work is being used to help the government set up a protected area. I also appreciate that they respect the space for these creatures. They also have listening devices to hear the whales - although we did not find any this trip. Bucket list item down with great flare. Thank you for a great time.
