Snorkeling and Scuba Diving in Southern Baja

 

Snorkeling Spots:

Pelican Rock: This rock attracts many fish and is just an easy five minute boat rid from Cabo San Lucas Marina.

Lover’s Beach: Accessible only by water taxi. Be aware that this is a high boat traffic area and it’s not roped off for swimmers.

Santa Maria Cove: Santa Maria is a regular destination for snorkel tours. If you choose to drive there, it’s a very easy swim from the shore to the reef.
