What to Expect
After being picked up at your Los Cabos hotel or at the cruise ship pier, head out to Medano Beach where you’re able to catch views of El Arco (or the Arch), a jagged rock formation that symbolizes Cabo. While on the beach, receive safety instructions and learn basic paddling techniques. Then, be outfitted with a life jacket and snorkeling gear and head out in your glass-bottom kayak. Your guide helps you maneuver the waters of the southern end of Cabo San Lucas, known as Land’s End. As you paddle around, spot pelicans and seabirds, as well as schools of fish, manta rays, and sea turtles through your kayak. Then, dock at Pelican’s Rock, a protected marine area, for snorkeling; here you may see lobsters, angelfish, puffers, and schools of stingrays. After, return to Medano Beach to board your vehicle for the trip back to your hotel or cruise ship port.
