What types of water activities are there in Los Cabos?

With the breathtaking Pacific Ocean on one side and the Gulf of California on the other, it’s impossible not to want to try all the water activities in Los Cabos. Because of this blend of breathtaking waters on the Baja California coast, you’re guaranteed to enjoy some of the best sailing options anywhere in Mexico.

One of the most stylish ways to cruise in Cabo’s waters is by taking a luxury sail aboard a 50-foot Beneteau yacht. Relax as you sip on a fine drink from the open bar, taking in the majestic sights on Cabo’s shores, most notably the Arch, the sea lion colony, Neptune’s Finger, and the famous Divorce and Lovers’ beaches. You can explore the latter one by taking a glass-bottom boat and snorkeling there, for an unforgettable swim with all the sea life you saw when looking down from your boat. You can also experience the magical changing colors of the sky and the ocean during a sunset sail, this being one of the most romantic water activities Cabo has to offer.

If your mood is much more festive during your Cabo vacation, get on a party boat for dancing, music, drinks and great times as you get inspired by the coastline rock formations between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, another name for the Gulf of California. This amazing body of water was dubbed ’the world’s aquarium’ by the legendary oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. See this natural aquarium on a catamaran adventure that involves snorkeling with a plethora of sea life, including friendly sea lions at the natural reserve of Espiritu Santo Island. And if you need more interaction with the sea mammals of Los Cabos, a dolphin swim is just what you need to make a new friend with one of the smartest animals on the planet.
