    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!

    • 10 hoursEvery Tuesday and Friday
    • Season start: 1st OctSeason end: 31st Mar
    • Cabo, Mexico

    We at Cabo Trek now offer whale shark snorkeling trips to La Paz during the entire whale shark season, from October till March, with our conservation partners the Whale Shark Research Project  a nonprofit organization dedicated to the conservation of whale sharks.

    By joining us for one of our research trips participants get the opportunity to interact with the whale sharks in their natural habitat, learn about the scientific research that is being undertaken, contribute to the conservation of these majestic sharks and have a great time doing it. The trips are a half-day in length leaving from Cabo San Lucas early in the morning, driving 1 hour 30mins up the peninsula towards La Paz Bay, a unique sheltered bay,  and a place where the whale sharks are known to arrive annually to feed.

    After a briefing about whale sharks you will be outfitted with snorkeling equipment and a marine biologist trained in whale shark conservation will guide your trip as we set out in search for the sharks in the Bay. Trips will generally last three hours in length with snacks and refreshments provided, before returning to shore where you can change before the return trip back to Cabo San Lucas.

    Meeting Point

    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 or revise your reservation, 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, water 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!
