Cabo Pulmo

Cabo Pulmo is an incredible tour to the only natural living reef in Mexico and is one of our most popular tours!

Located approximately 60 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Pulmo has been aptly described as "the aquarium of the world" by conservationist & explorer Jacques Cousteau. American author John Steinbeck describes Cabo Pulmo as "teeming with fauna" and details the "electric colors" of the reef in his book "The Log from the Sea of Cortez".

A special place fitting for anyone's bucket list! See the tour.

Arch & Lover's Beach, The 3 Bay

For half-day kayaking and snorkeling tours, there are the popular Arch & Lover's Beach and The 3 Bay tours. Glide your way past the famous El Arco (The Arch) in Cabo San Lucas and follow it up with a snorkel out to Neptune's Finger.

If you prefer a more reclusive (yet close & convenient) kayaking & snorkeling adventure, The 3 Bay tour is a perfect match and our best snorkel trip due to the natural reef environment!

Kayaking in the Estuary

Kayaking in the San Jose del Cabo Estuary at Sunset
Duration: Approximately 3 - 4 hours
$55 USD per person including tax

This is an exceptional kayaking tour through the San Jose del Cabo estuary and bird sanctuary. Five minutes from downtown San Jose is a peaceful area filled with 200 species of exotic birds such as egrets, herons and brown pelicans, and many native and migratory birds. Sunset is the most scenic and picturesque time to visit. Includes kayaks, all gear, drinks, and park fees.

About the estuary: The estuary is the largest body of fresh water in southern Baja, and is protected by Mexican law as a natural preserve and sanctuary for hundreds of species of tropical and migratory birds, and for many species of marine life, amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. The estuary at San Jose del Cabo is an ever changing environment: water levels rise and fall with the season and the tide and salinity levels also change. The estuary is ringed by tall Tlaco palms, a species that is common to this and a few other wetlands of southern Baja and over millions of years has adapted to withstanding the occasional flood conditions.

FEBRUARY 2016 UPDATE: Please contact us about availability of the Estuary kayaking tour, there was some damage after Hurricane Odile and the San Jose estuary is not always available for tours.
