We have been on a lot of snorkeling adventures, and this was less crowded on the boat than others. The time of year meant water would be cool/cold and was to be expected. The staff on the boat was awesome and the drinks were plentiful on the return which is a plus! Cabo is beautiful and in January when we were there we saw many whales even some in the bay between the ship and shore! Read Less

We did the Kayak, paddleboard, snorkel trip. The only thing I would change here is they should have taken us to the picture spot before the snorkling. Everyone looked like drowned rats in the pictures.

I went on the Luxury Snorkeling Tour. Worth every dime. The snorkeling was not what everyone hyped it up to be, but the experience on the boat by the crew made up for it. We saw a few whales!

This was a snorkeling tour on a replica pirate ship. The staff were friendly and fun. We first sailed to see the arch (from a distance), then we were supposed to sail to Chileno Bay but couldn't because of swell conditions (they weren't letting anyone head over there for snorkeling, it wasn't just our ship). So instead we sailed to Pelican Rock. You had the option of snorkeling near the boat (anchored a bit of a ways from the rock) or swimming to the rock if you were a bit more experienced swimmer. My son and I chose the latter, and we saw tons of beautiful fish. On the way back one of the guides found a puffer fish, and our leader found a HUGE sea urchin. Once back we had lunch (just-ok burritos, chips and salsa, and a terrible pasta salad) and there was an open bar for those so inclined. They did a mini show at the end to promote their sunset pirate show cruise, and that was pretty cool. Towards the end they were bringing up people with birthdays/anniversaries/etc. and started pouring liquor into them, but otherwise it was pretty family-friendly. They had an aggressive photographer who would try to get you to pose for a bunch of photos which they naturally tried to sell you towards the end. (I bought them, some of them were pretty good.)

Area overran with boats and filthy water. Included drinks and snacks, but only drinks were provided. Getting on and off the boat was extremely dangerous. This tour should never have been allowed to operate off the cruse ship dock.
