The Whale Sunset Cruise is the our last tour of the day and it surely is the most romantic one: the day comes to an end and activity in Cabo San Lucas slows down. All of a sudden you’re surrounded by silence and tranquility.
The scope of this tour is to enjoy 2 hours on a boat while watching the incredibly beautiful natural scenarios Cabo has to offer, the arch illuminated by the last sunlight is an excellent occasion for some amazing pictures. Your guide will share a great amount of knowledge and interesting facts about the humpbacks, as we cruise towards the Pacific Ocean in the hope of encountering some active whales.
Just before the sun reaches the lowest point, we’ll find a lonely spot where to relax and will put the hydrophone in the water as we might experience the magic of a singing humpback. While the sound breaks the silence our guide will hand you a glass of wine and some taste appetizer as we slowly make our way back into the harbor.
During the trip our guide while also make sure to take pictures of the most memorable moments.
On board of the Cabo Trek boat you will experience the comfort of a hard shell fiberglass boat that has cushioned seats and a marine restroom, given the size of the vessel there is freedom of movement for an overall high quality service.

Nevertheless, for the sunset whale cruise, you may consider taking with you a sweater and eventually long pants.
