Our BoatsSafe & comfortable vessels
Cabo Trek operates using fully equipped and comfortable 32ft Super Pangas. Our whale watching boats are equipped with water-proof roofs to provide ample shade, cushioned seats, glass bottom windows, snacks, drinking water and a marine bathroom on board. Our boats and captains are of course professionally licensed and certified.
Our boats can carry up to 16 people, but for comfort reasons we book tours for no more than 10 persons. On our tours we try to create as much intimity with the whales as possible.
Aboard every boat is a Cabo Trek hydrophone system to listen to whales communicating or “singing” below the surface. This coupled with our underwater video and audio system will allow customers to view live feeds of the whales in action underwater!
Cabo Trek’s boats allow us to use safe whale watching practices as recommended by numerous science and conservation groups. These well-equipped boats allow Cabo Trek and our customers to approach the whales at a safe, yet close distance without interfering with their natural wildlife behaviors.
Safe & comfortable – Fast & reliable – Small groups – Always close to the action
Pros of Whale Watching on Small Boats
The Cabo Trek whale watching boat is the ideal vessel for the task. Large boats take more time to maneuver and greater distances to maneuver, which means that they can’t get as close to the whales nor can they quickly turn their boat around to navigate to other spotting locations.
Another con with whale watching on larger boats is that larger boats equal larger groups. The experience and intimacy of whale watching is quickly diminished when you factor in hundreds of people and larger, slower boats that can’t keep up with the impressive speed of the whales.
