Life vests are provided on all tours for guests 3 years and older and snorkeling gear and floating devices are provided for guests 8 years and older. Snorkeling conditions are best and recommended during the morning and early afternoon departures due to better lighting and visibility however if you would like to snorkel prior to the sunset, you are welcome to enjoy the activity.

If I am coming from a cruise ship, how do I get to your location?

You do not need to pay for any transportation to our location as we are conveniently located directly next to the cruise ship pier. Once you walk out of the cruise ship terminal (pier), walk to the right along the marina and we are located at the next Dock 4 in front of Senor Frog’s Restaurant. We are less than a minute walk from the cruise ship pier.

Can we participate in sailing the boat?

We welcome our guests to take the helm, participate with the crew or simply relax.

Should I bring anything on the tour?

In the winter months, we recommend a light jacket for the sunset sail. If you plan on snorkeling or swimming, bring your sun block and towel. Don’t forget your camera for magnificent photographs! An iPod connection is available.

When is the best time for whale watching?

Whale watching season in Cabo San Lucas is from mid December through March. Peak season is January and February. Any time of the day is best to see these gentle giants.

When do you hoist the sails?

We motor out of the marina to Land’s End. Once we arrive at Land’s End, we hoist the sails to enjoy sailing in the Pacific Ocean, Sea of Cortes and the Cabo San Lucas Bay.
