Private Snorkeling tours in Cabo Pulmo

  • Cabo Pulmo National Park
  • All year

Snorkeling in Cabo Pulmo is a treat!

A fishing ban since the 1990s has seen fish stocks explode back to health. Now it’s common to snorkel above a huge school of jacks, or on a reef filled with tropical fish families.

Visit the sea lion colony and watch them play around under water! One snorkel beach included on the tour is very popular with turtles and rays.

The village provides insight into ‘the real’ Baja California Sur, away from busy Los Cabos.

When to go snorkeling in Cabo Pulmo

Cabo Pulmo National Park, like the rest of Baja California Sur, enjoys it’s nicest season from late August to December.

During autumn months you won’t need a wetsuit and the water is often clearer and warm. In addition, during this time, there is often more shelter here in Cabo Pulmo because swell can affect snorkel or diving tours nearer to the Pacific Ocean.

That’s not to say you shouldn’t book during the rest of the year!

We can have great wildlife interactions here all year round, du to the fact it is the protected natural area with a strong support of the local community.

The summer months see the Mobula ray aggregation passing through from La Ventana down to Cabo. This means we can see lots of these rays jumping out of the water!

During the winter humpback whale migration in December to April we often enjoy the added bonus of seeing acrobatic humpback whale displays during snorkel tours in the spring.

Once we receive your reservation we will schedule your hotel pick up time. We can pick you up no matter whether you are staying in Cabo San Lucas central or all the way to San Jose del Cabo.

Once on the road there is an optional stop for burritos and coffee in case you don’t have time to grab breakfast at the hotel. We will be on the road for 2 hours passing by some of the small inland pueblos and even the Tropic of Cancer equatorial marker!

Lot’s of wildlife to see on the way such as Hawks, road runners and the famous road-cow of Baja California Sur!

We will drive the last 6 miles on a dirt road before arriving in the beautiful National Park village of Cabo Pulmo.

Once at the tour center there will be time to change and use the bathroom. We will meet our boat captain and head out to 3 or 4 different sites.

The tour time is a total 2 hours. Once we finish our snorkel tour we will enjoy a traditional lunch in a local Mexican restaurant.

There are several souvenir shops in Cabo Pulmo with some good quality gifts and the local people appreciate this contribution.

Then, when you are ready to head back, we will make our way back to Los Cabos for around 5pm in the evening.
