Depending on Ocean conditions the boat ride is about 30 to 40 minutes to get to the furthest dive site (Chileno Bay): the Corridor is a perfect occasion also for non divers to join the group as the reefs close to the coast are very shallow and are great snorkeling spots, so bring family and friends on tour with you, they may even be interested in trying scuba diving by enrolling in a PADI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) program.
The Los Cabos whale watching season runs from the 15th of December until the 15th of April. The best times fall between January and March. A few lucky customers will get the rare gift of seeing mother whales and her newborn calves! Contact us if you want to go whale watching in Cabo in early December and April: the whales are here even before and after that in that case we recommend our PRE and POST whale watching wildlife tour, a trip focused on great variety of animals offered by the Baja California Sur region. In terms of BEST time of the day please take the following into consideration when booking a whale watching tour with Cabo Trek:
