Cabo Snorkeling Done Right

It is a mistake to put on your snorkeling mask and jump directly into the water closest to your hotel.  If you are thinking about snorkeling in Cabo, it is imperative you do it the right way.  Let us guide you to the best snorkeling spots in Cabo and you will be more than pleased with the underwater experience.

The optimal time to snorkel in Cabo is between April and October as the water temperature begins to drop in November.  Snorkel in any of the fall, spring or summer months and you will agree it is well worth the brief learning curve.  However, those who absolutely love to snorkel will not hesitate to snorkel in Cabo during the winter simply because the local waters are quite lively with fish and other aquatic life. 

The Best Cabo Snorkeling Sites

Chileno Bay is revered as one of Cabo’s best snorkeling sites.  Positioned along the Corridor close to Santa Maria, this site features sheltered waters with truly amazing underwater aesthetics.  The offshore reefs at Chileno Bay are home to sea fans, tropical fish, eels and more.  Pelican Rock at Land’s End can be reached by way of water taxi after departing from Medano Beach or Cabo’s primary marina.  Land’s End’s bay side provides truly amazing snorkeling waters highlighted by an array of marine species including angelfish, rays, surgeonfish, sea turtles, parrotfish and Moorish idols.  Nearby waters even feature sea lions.

Both experienced and “newbie” snorkelers favor Cabo’s Santa Maria Bay.  Located along the Tourist Corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, this site has become quite the popular snorkeling destination.  In fact, snorkeling tours arrive at Santa Maria Bay from Cabo’s marina throughout the morning and afternoon.  Santa Maria Bay is shaped similar to a crescent.  Here, you will find schools of colorful marine life, sea fans and plenty of beautiful coral.
