Snorkeling at Cabo San Lucas
One of the most popular excursions for cruise passengers visiting Cabo San Lucas is snorkeling, and there are a variety of sites listed, including Santa Maria, Lover's Beach, and Chileno Bay. Snorkeing adventures typically last from 3 to 4 hours.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $50 to $80 through the cruise lines.
Booking Advice: These excursions usually have a moderate activity rating. Santa Maria gets excellent reviews from past passengers. Third party vendors, including those waiting for you when you disembark, also get some solid positive reviews and typically offer many similar excursions at a fraction of the cruise line prices.
From mid December through March, gray, humpback, and blue whales are frequently sighted in the waters off Cabo San Lucas. Zodiac excursions tend to cost more and be more difficult physically, but the 2 level boat excursions are generally rated as easy.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $70 to $100 through the cruise lines.
Booking Advice: Third party prices for the 2 level boat whale watching adventures are less expensive than those listed by the cruise lines. These excursions are usually 2.5 hours long. Because you might be in the vicinity of these large mammals, we do suggest that you book this excursion with the cruise line or an online reputable vendor. Getting into a motorboat with someone you don't know to see an animal the size of a bus is NOT something we recommend that you do. Also, whale sightings are frequent, but these can't be guaranteed.
