Full description
Santa Maria and Chileno Bay are two of the best swimming and snorkeling spots in Cabo San Lucas, and on this 3-hour tour you will experience the beauty of both. After a convenient hotel pick-up, you are fixed up with all the equipment you need and head to the glorious waters of Santa Maria Bay. Surrounded by craggy cliffs, it is an ideal location for snorkeling and makes a perfect introduction to your tour. Enjoy a wide variety of marine life in the calm waters before embarking on the kayak stage of the day. The glass-bottom kayaks used on the tour will give you an unforgetable underwater experience as colorful fish swim beneath you. If your tour takes place during the whale migration season, from January to March, you should keep your eyes peeled for the magnificent creatures at play. Whatever time of the year you visit, you are certain to thrill to the sea life at Chileno Bay. Here you can swim among tidal pools and finger reef. Enjoy your second snorkel in a bay that teems with tropical fish, sea urchins and eels. If you are lucky you might even see some turtles. Relax with a well-deserved refreshment on a glorious stretch of sandy beach, before the journey back to your Cabo hotel.

I have been snorkeling and kayaking in MANY places. This was the best experience EVER! Alan and Edgar were the best guides ever. Who knew that the three of us would have a basic one on one! If you don't book this tour, you're missing out on the best time of your life!

great adventure with even better guides!

This kayaking tour was very fun and challenging! If you are looking to delve through the Pacific Ocean on a kayak, with the mystery of the wild life potential, this is the tour for you. The guides were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Yools for any of the tours!
