Private snorkeling trip

We had a great family experience. Our guide Felipe did a great job of taking care of us. The entire crew was enjoyable to be around and felt we got great value for the cost of the trip. Thank you, Richard

I went on a snorkeling trip and all the experience was superb. From the easy booking online, to the actual snorkeling with an awesome guide and captain who found the best spots.

Discover the Mobula ray aggregation in Baja California

The mobula ray aggregation is so spectacular it has been documented by National Geographic and the BBC Blue Planet. Huge fevers of Mobula Munkiana devil ray peak in number in this part of The Sea of Cortez in late April and May. The nearby nursery grounds of Espiritu Santo Island in La Paz mean they travel here first before heading down to San Lucas in June and July. Until now, Cabo Private Guide has been enjoying their late-summer encounter with mobula from Cabo San Lucas with guests for a number of years.

Swim with Mobula ray in Jacques Cousteau Island (Cerralvo Island)

As a bespoke boutique adventure snorkeling company, we have now decided to offer this bucket-list open-ocean day safari to Jacques Cousteau Island (Cerralvo Island); a more secluded area of Baja Sur where you can spend a day away from busy Cabo enjoying this unique and stunning wildlife encounter. And it’s not just the mobula rays! It’s possible to also see Orcas, sperm whales, whale sharks and swim with wild dolphins.
