Snorkeling Catamaran Tour at Santa Maria Bay
From US$59.00
Swim and snorkel in Santa Maria Bay on a 3.5-hour catamaran cruise from Cabo San Lucas that includes lunch and an open bar. Spot the Arch, Pelican Rock, and the sea lion colony as you travel along the coast, then slip into the water to find bright coral reefs and tropical fish. This 3.5-hour snorkeling cruise is the perfect way to explore the natural side of Cabo San Lucas with an experienced captain and crew.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Cabo San Lucas marina for 12pm departure, and board a spacious catamaran for an afternoon of sea and sun.
Leave the town behind as you cruise out of Cabo San Lucas Bay to the Arch, stopping for some classic photos with the rock as a backdrop. Continue to Pelican Rock, steer past the sunbathers at Lover’s Beach, and see the sea lions that bark, swim, and bask on a rocky outcropping.
When you arrive in Santa Maria Bay, step into the water with snorkeling gear—if you’re a first-time snorkeler, the crew can help you with the basics of safety and technique.
Swim over coral reefs that teem with tropical fish, and watch for the diverse marine wildlife that thrives along the Mexican coast.
After your time in the water, return to the boat for a light lunch that includes fresh guacamole, salsa, and chips, with beer, margaritas, and soft drinks from the open bar. This 3.5-hour snorkeling cruise concludes at the Cabo San Lucas marina.

Can’t drink for first hour

Wish I had been told Ahead of time. They won’t serve you alcohol until after you snorkel. Takes an hour to get to snorkel. Another hour of snorkeling, then you can have a beer. Absolutely ridiculous. Especially because where you snorkel is in 5 to...More
