CHILENO & SANTA MARIA
Santa Maria Cove and Chileno Bay are probably
the two best snorkeling locations near Cabo San Lucas Mexico.
These two beautiful coves are located along the Los Cabos
Corridor, between the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del
Cabo. The water is usually calm and clear compared to most
other locations in the Cabo area.
Most of the boat
tours visit either Chileno Bay or Santa Maria Cove, and
there is a good reason. The calm blue water and friendly
tropical fish are perfect for a day tour or cruise shore
excursion. The two bays are located just around the bend
from each other, but the unique layout means that when the
snorkeling is excellent at one, it could be not as good at the
other - it depends on the weather patterns.
For this reason, we've combined the two
locations and the rest of the Los Cabos Corridor into one
snorkeling tour - that way the crew has the freedom to choose
the spot along the Corridor that has the best snorkeling
conditions on the day you're on the tour. You'll take about a 30-minute boat ride to the snorkeling site where you may
see sea turtles or manta rays, along with hundreds of tropical fish.
NOTE: The actual snorkeling time on
this tour is approximately DOUBLE that of most tours in Cabo
San Lucas, at about 1.5 hours (even more if you choose to snorkel
during the break!), and you'll snorkel at two separate locations!
Cruise Passengers: Yes! This tour makes a great shore excursion.
Runs: Daily at 9:00AM
Duration: 3.5 Hours Approximately
Departs: Scuba offices at Plaza Embarcadero, located
on the Marina between Gali Plaza and the Arts and Crafts Center,
1 Block from the Cruise Ship Pier.
Kids: All ages welcome. Kids 8 years old and
younger pay kids price. Kids over 8 years old pay adult price.
* If the water is choppy on the
day of the trip, we may need to use van transportation instead
of a boat to get to the protected coves for snorkeling.

When they do their
1-hour surface interval, you can either wait on the boat, or we
can take you to the beach, or you can continue to enjoy excellent

ready for their second dive, you'll go out on the boat to the second
reef and snorkel even more!
That could be up
to 2 hours of pure Snorkeling! Most snorkeling tours only
offer about 45 minutes!
Please note that
this is an unguided snorkeling tour. The boat pulls into
the bay and you can snorkel around on your own or chill out on
the beach, but there is
not a guide in the water with you, you just snorkel on your own
or visit the beach and then after the divers are done, the boat
will take you back.
