Snorkel into the “Aquarium of the World”

The Sea of Cortez is a legendary and magnificent wonder full of exotic marine life and extreme beauty.

Being surrounded by pristine, azure waters and white sandy beaches will provide calming panoramic views you will remember for a lifetime. But that’s not all.

Jacques Cousteau called the Sea of Cortez the “aquarium of the world” for a good reason. This aquatic habitat is brimming with extraordinary sea life you can’t find anywhere else, which has earned it the UNESCO World Heritage Site status.

Take part in an Ocean Safari

On our Sea of Cortez snorkeling tour adventure, you’ll have the chance of close encounters with dolphins, schools of exotic fish, sea lions*, manta rays, and whales among other breathtaking undersea creatures. Discover some of the most extraordinary and remote wonders of the world in this exciting Cabo expedition on your next trip to Cabo San Lucas!

Our tour stretches from Cabo to La Paz and starts on land, where you’ll get an intimate introduction to the Baja landscape on your way to the water. Experience a scenic two-hour drive to La Paz and receive a back-door tour of Baja California Sur on this ecological adventure.

Cabo Snorkeling in Espiritu Santo Island

If you seek vast exploration of Cabo San Lucas and seize adventure at every corner (all while enjoying a little relaxation in the process), then our snorkeling tours are the right choice for you. A tour starts with a scenic and relaxing cruise aboard a luxury catamaran to reach the snorkeling destination, the Sea of Cortez.

However, the journey toward Espiritu Santo Island is only half the fun as you cruise past exquisite beaches and crystal blue coves brimming with marine life. On the cruise itself, you’ll have the opportunity to witness exotic marine and sea life freely roaming the waters around you.

When our yacht reaches its destination, the Sea of Cortez Wildlife & Snorkeling Adventure begins. Swim and snorkel in this natural sanctuary among sea lions* and an awe-inspiring array of brightly colored tropical fish, sea stars, corals, and occasionally playful sea lion pups!

Glimpse a myriad of incredible marine wildlife, swim safely among friends and family, and make memories to last a lifetime. Of the many Cabo expeditions available in the region, none is better or more rewarding than the Sea of Cortez snorkeling adventure at Cabo Adventures.

Sit back, relax, and bask in the warm sun as we anchor at a breathtaking bay. Treat yourself to a fresh lunch and an unlimited open bar. Experience total immersion in incredible natural beauty as you board our luxury catamaran for a world-class tour.
