Great Hassle Free Snorkeling Experience
Laura and the crew were great snorkeling guides. I was traveling with my girlfriend and her son who aren't the strongest swimmers. Laura was fantastic with them both and we had a great time. We visited both Chileno Bay and Pelican Rock…By Arnaud Lemaire on TripAdvisor
Great experience with guide Felipe! My girlfriend and I enjoyed our very first snorkeling adventure and I'd recommend a private guide for beginners and veterans. You can't beat the knowledge, attention and patience. It's nice to snorkel at your own pace. Would…By Matthew G on TripAdvisor
Whale watching and snorkel private tour
Laura was very easy to work with and her tour guides made the whale watching memorable. They let us adjust to how much whale watching vs sborkeling we wanted to do. Excellent views.of whales interacting and jumping.By Monica F on TripAdvisor

Amazing snorkel experience
Had one of the best snorkeling experiences ever with Jenny, Raj and Julian. My husband has never really enjoyed snorkeling and finally did with them. They took time to make sure his mask fit correctly, even adjusting several times, and stayed close…By SFpol on TripAdvisor

What you can see on a Cabo snorkeling tour
In addition to snorkeling you can enjoy a tour of the Cabo San Lucas bay where our guides will show you a number of interesting landmarks. As we leave the marina, past all the big yachts and impressive sail boats, the first area we pass is the old cannery at the local’s beach: on the other side the popular tourist Medano Beach. Continuing along the bay you will see Balcony Beach, Pelican Rock and Lover’s Beach. Visit the Pacific Window rock formation that allows you to peep through the impressive volcanic rock and see the Pacific Ocean.
Next stop is the famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas. Ask us to take a photo!
Finally, before returning to Pelican Rock, we can go and see the sea lions on top of their colony at the most southern tip of Baja California Sur: Land’s End.
The best time to snorkel in Cabo San Lucas
You can snorkel in Los Cabos year-round because there is an abundance of life all year. Conditions do change!
From August to November :
You will not need a wetsuit from August – November although you can always request one from us free-of-charge for the tour. This is also the time that it is clearest and warmest and so your guide will be able to get some very nice photos and videos in clear water.
From May to August :
If you want to snorkel with big animals aim to get here for May – August when we may have the Mobula ray migration passing through. It’s common to see them right in the bay by Pelican Rock and if you’re willing to start early we can even make a slight detour to go and look for them around the bay.
From December to April :
You may also hear some whale song between December and April while snorkeling in the bay! Such a treat.
