Full description
Your full day excursion begins with morning pickup from your accommodation, followed by a 2-hour scenic drive to Cabo Pulo National Marine Park. Along the way, your expert local guide will keep you entertained with priceless stories and facts about the region. Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is a series of protected marine sanctuaries that form a bay around 1 of the 3 living coral reefs in North America. Established as a protected park in 1995, studies recently have shown an increase in biomass of almost 500% — and it shows. Tropical fish abound, with schools of grouper and jacks parading next to rays, eyes, and the occasional shark. Upon arriving in Cabo Pulmo, marvel at the landscape as the mountainous desert meets the brilliant turquoise sea. As you get geared up at Los Arbolitos beach, you’ll be informed of the park regulations and given an instructional kayak lesson. Paddle out to La Sirenita beach, a remote sea lion colony, before hopping into the water to begin snorkeling amidst plentiful aquatic life. You’ll spend around 4 hours exploring the vibrant coral reefs, stopping at 2-3 snorkeling locations. After a thrilling day on the water, head back to the small community of Cabo Pulmo for a delicious local lunch, before heading back to Cabo.

Great day, Casey had every aspect of the trip planned, no glitches. The drive to Cabo Pulmo went by quickly as Casey shared his knowledge of the area. Kayaking to the snorkel spot was just long enough. We spent 2 1/2 hours snorkeling the area! Lunch was waiting for us and delicious. I appreciated that it had been preplanned. Exhilarated and happily exhausted most of us slept on the way back to our respective hotels.

All very well

A minimum of 4 people were needed for this tour: by not raising the necessary amount, they offered me another tour (the one with the three bays), and they gave me the relevant refund. From that tour we could only visit two bays (very nice) because in one they were recording a series (of TV) and we could not enter the beach. Hence everything went very well, the guides very friendly and talkative. I liked it, thanks for everything.
