Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour includes ground transportation to and from Cabo. On board the large and spacious sailing catamaran, enjoy breakfast including fruit, yogurt, and pastries as you set sail for your destination. After the captain’s orientation, your hostess, a marine biologist and snorkel leader, will share valuable information on the Sea of Cortez and the lives and characteristics of the whale shark.

    When the first whale sharks are spotted, you will board one of the companion 22’ dive boats. Boarding ladders allow easy access to and from the water. Your snorkel leader will typically enter the water first to assist guests as needed. Fresh water showers are immediately available when re-boarding, as are fresh laundered towels.

    Once everyone has had their own personal experience, a delicious lunch of several prepared dishes will be served. Also included throughout the day are chips, salsas, guacamole, snacks, soft drinks, beer, bottled water, ice, and an open bar. Weather- and time-permitting, the sails will be raised for a dramatic return cruise to the resort at Costa Baja where guests will board our private ground transportation for their return trip to Cabo. At your request, your driver will stop at the mythological Hotel California made famous by the Eagles popular song after, which you will be returned to your pick-up location.

    Fruits and vegetables for the tour are sourced from local farms and delivered daily. There is organic chicken delivered daily and prepared on board in various ways, along with multiple side dishes. Snorkel gear, flotation vests, powered attendant boats, beach towels, layout mattresses, cushions, and pillows are all included.
