At Cabo Trek we want you to be part of our efforts to further the understanding and appreciation of the world by re-establishing our connection with mother nature. Cabo Trek works diligently toward 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.

And Scuba Diving or Snorkeling here in Cabo San Lucas is surely a great way to re-establish that connection: being fully immersed surrounded by hundreds of different species of marine life is an experience that certified divers enjoy each and every dive while first timers are blown away by the experience!

Witness the miracle of life that unfolds in front of your eyes!

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.

The place we will be going to is located just a few Km out of Cabo San Lucas along the Pacific Ocean, a remote location that offers the opportunity to escape the crowds of Los Cabos and enjoy a nature full immersion experience, especially should you decide to enroll in the nesting or combo activity which includes an overnight stay under the stars. All the tours are guided by marine biologists that work for the Mexican non-profit civil association ASUPMATOMA. The conservation project is almost 20 years old which will ensure a safe and educational learning experience, the usual way of Cabo Trek making learning fun. The time spent together will allow us to conduct environmental education activities as well as raise awareness of the necessity to protect Nature and the endangered species such as the turtles.

Cabo Turtle Release Tour: 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.
