Whale watching in Los Cabos is a unique experience! Each and every year thousands of Humpback Whales migrate all the way from Alaska to give birth to their calves and reproduce in the warm waters of Mexico and Central America.
The wildlife in Cabo San Lucas is never on holiday! As the summer season begins turtles start to invade the beaches of Baja California Sur and you can be part of this miracle of life that unfolds in front of your eyes. Thousands of Olive Ridley and Black Turtles come to shore to lay their load of eggs deep in the sand before returning to the sea and disappearing in the wide-open Ocean. Doesn’t take too long, around 45 days before the hatchlings will make their run to the Ocean as well. Only a few will survive and make it back one day to lay their eggs: our task is to raise the percentage of survival as much as possible, by taking care of the nest and protecting them until the day of birth and helping them reach the Ocean.
Groups range from a minimum of 2 people to a maximum of 10-12 guests.
When booking a tour with Cabo Trek you have the guarantee of purchasing an, in Cabo San Lucas, unmatched quality tour! Although our boat capacity is licensed up to 18 people, for comfort, safety, and to ensure the best overall whale watching experience in town we choose to keep the groups small.
If you want to reserve the boat just for you and you family or friends, you can book a private tour or contact us!
From the 1st of September till the 15th of December This tour will take about 4 hours to complete. The release of the turtles is done in the early evening (04:00pm) after we receive a 30 minute briefing about the story of the camp, the conservation work done and lots of information about the turtles. Please note that during this time, as we get closer to the winter time, chances are high to see the first Humpback Whales traveling south towards Cabo San Lucas.
