Full description
Take an included short transfer from San José del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas to arrive at Las Viudas, a secluded beach along the tourist corridor. Get geared up, receive kayaking instructions from your experienced guide, then head out on your adventure in the Sea of Cortez. Kayak near the picturesque coastline, and follow your guide to Santa Maria Bay while keeping an eye out for whales or rays. Put on your snorkeling gear when you reach the beach, and wade into the azure waters to explore the sea life in the rocky, reef-like environment below. Once you are well rested, paddle the next stretch around the point with spectacular cliffs, caves, and waves splashing up into geysers. Stop at the white sandy beach of Chileno Bay, and relax with a welcome blanket and umbrella. Finally, gear up again and venture back into the crystal blue waters for another glimpse of the tropical underwater world to end your adventure.

Excellent trip and we had a blast! Casey was a great and seasoned guide that was unbelievably accommodating. We stopped at two different beaches for snorkeling and paddled about 3 miles total. Scenery along the coastline was beautiful and Casey took a few pictures of us by a small arch that we loved. The kayaks and gear were in great shape and the schedule was as described in the booking. Without a doubt, we'd book with them again. Highly recommend scheduling a trip with them.

It was great! Casey picked us up at the hotel and we drove to the beach where we launched. Casey had everything we wanted and he’s so knowledgeable. Views were beautiful, both from the kayak and beaches. Water was pretty cold, so we didn’t snorkel for long. Casey is friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this trip with Cabo Outfitters!!

We were picked up at our hotel in San Jose Del Cabo and brought to the beach where we took off kayaking. It was just my girlfriend and I on the tour which was super cool. Our guide took us out to see some whales then snorkeling at one of the secluded beaches. After that we paddled back and he put out a blanket and a umbrella for us to relax under while he got everything put away. I would highly recommend anyone to go on this trip! Great guide and amazing time!
