Snorkel at Pelican's Rock
Revel in the opportunity to snorkel at Pelican's Rock in the waters of Mexico Jacques Cousteau once called the"aquarium of the world."
Your underwater adventure awaits after you depart the pier area with your guide in air-conditioned comfort and make your way to the Los Cabos Marina.
Upon arrival you will board your comfortable glass bottom boat and will automatically begin to see the world that lies beneath the surface of the water.
Make your way from the marina passing by the famous Land's End rock formation and have the opportunity for wonderful pictures of the Arch. You will also pass by colonies of sea lions before arriving at Pelican's Rock in the Mar de Cortez and the warm and inviting waters of your snorkel destination.
Your snorkeling guide will brief you on conditions and safety before handing out your gear.
Jump into the beautiful water and let your adventure begin in this"aquarium" as you encounter colorful tropical fish, as well as possibly starfish, sea cucumbers, sea urchins, seahorses, crabs, stingrays and other marine animals just to name a few. Be mesmerized by the underwater flora of these crystal clear waters where this reef area has flourished under the protection of marine conservation. Your professional snorkeling guide is always close at hand to point out what's not to be missed as well as provide any assistance. Photos are being taken of you while you snorkel so be sure and smile for the camera, a photo CD is included.
After your underwater adventure you will be taken to a nearby beach, if weather conditions allow, for some relaxation and be provided with a fresh deli style baguette with choice of ham, tuna, turkey or vegetarian, chips, juice and energy bar.
Upon returning to the marina, your guide will next take you to Cabo for free time at the local flea market where you may shop for souvenirs before returning to your ship.
Went on this excursion with 2 kids ages 13 and 3. They were very professional, started our tour a couple hours early and upgraded us to a private tour. My 3 year old is under the minimum age but they allowed him to not only tag along but they also allowed him to participate provided I held him the whole time in the water. Note we did bring our own toddler life vest for him. Kids were excited to see the different fishes through the glass bottom and also snorkling. They provided lunch (sandwich, granola bar, chips, juice) which was a nice surprise considering I didn't know or remember that it was provided. Also because they started us early, that gave us time to go back into the cruise to change then head out for a couple of hours to explore the area and shop. Overall, it was a terrific excursion and I would not hesitate to book it again.

Great experience, saw lots of colorful fishes. The guide is super nice, he helps to take pictures and provides all equipments. He even provided the disc with all photos to us.
This excursion was awesome! The whole family loved it.

This is an enjoyable excursion especially for those who are not strong swimmers but enjoy the water and want to see aquatic life. The guides require you to stay together as a group which is understandable from a safety perspective but it does inhibit you to freely look and observe the sea life as you are constantly looking around to make sure you have not gotten too far from the group. There were quite a few beautiful fish and other sea life to see. The guides also provided a tour of the various rock formations as we drove to and from our snorkeling location. It was a nice outing.
We are family of 4, including 11 years old son and 8 years old daughter. Both enjoyed excursion safely. We saw a lot of fish, tour guy tried to entertain, it was good. Negative points are 1. sea water temperature was low, 2. it was open water area and bit hard for children, 3. clarity of sea was not so good.
