The Best 5 Spots for Snorkeling in Cabo
Snorkeling in Cabo is one of the many reasons people flock from all over the world to our beautiful beaches. The water is pristine. Loveshack Cruises can take you out on a snorkel tour, whale watching tour, watch the sunset or even fish.
If you’re looking for the best snorkeling in Cabo, the five best spots are listed below.
Where to Go Snorkeling In Cabo
1. Pelican Rock
Have you heard of Pelican Rock? It’s the top location for snorkeling, and it’s one of the busier waterways in the area. You’ll find water taxis in the area, but the snorkeling remains impeccable even if the waters can get rough on occasion when there is high boating activity.
You can reach Pelican Rock on our very well equipped yacht, we have all the features to make your snorkeling experience unforgettable.
Be on the lookout for angelfish, sea turtles and you might even see sea lions in the nearby waters.
2. Santa Maria Bay
You can’t snorkel in Cabo and not go out to Santa Maria. This popular snorkeling spot is one of the easiest to find, and you’ll be able to find tropical fish swimming all along the coral reefs in the area.
The area’s best snorkeling can be found on the southwest end of the bay.
Crystal-clear waters and the pebbly sand, along with a cove, make it a great destination to explore in Cabo San Lucas.
3. Chileno Reef
A short distance from Santa Maria, Chileno Beach is home to a spectacular reef that everyone snorkeling in Cabo will want to explore. Considered a “paradise,” the reef is filled with:
- Manta rays
- So much more
You’ll find tropical fish galore at the reef, which is about a half mile from the beach’s sands.
4. Cabo Pulmo
Cabo Pulmo is a national park, and the conservation of the area has made it one of the top spots to snorkel in Cabo. The protected area is about two hours from Cabo, but it’s worth the trek. The one main concern with this location is that the waters can be choppy at certain times throughout the year.
You can enjoy one or two reefs in the area with beautiful fish and marine life.
5. Hilton Cove
If you don’t want to risk going to Cabo Pulmo because the waters may be rough, Hilton Cove almost always has calm waters. This family-friendly beach is a tourist hotspot, but you’ll want to move slightly away from the main location to go snorkeling.
Make your way to the left portion of the cove near the rocks for the best snorkeling.
You want to be sure to avoid the areas where people are on their jet skis because marine life will be sparse in these locations.
