We took a water taxi to give us a tour of lovers & divorce beach. Was really nice and the drive was really nice. Well worth $20 our little ones loved the seals sunbathing. Don't pay more then $10 a person you can always fin someone cheaper plus it's to with more then that to be honest.

Take the glass bottom boat ride. You will see the rock. It's nothing special, but it's cool to go out on the boat ride and get a close up of the rocks.

This is the place to go snorkeling closest to the marina at Cabo San Lukas. Beautiful reef fish, large angel fish, and tons of other very colorful fish. We went 2x's within the same week we loved it so much without going far from Cabo.

While always nice to be out on the water on a sunny day, you don't need to pay for a tour to see pelicans. There are plenty around the marina. Tours are cheap enough, we paid $10 for a thirty minute boat ride, but unless you've never done anything similar, you can find a better use for the money.

Because of its popularity you will find a large human population in water taxis, glass bottom boats, snorkeling, and scuba diving. All valuable and all worth doing. And for the swimmers you can dive off the rock (always check the bottom and angle first). The marine life is fantastic and a great trip for all ages to appreciate the Sea... More

Great place to snorkel! A great number of fish and a pretty decent sized area to snorkel around, furthermore surrounded by buoys. You could also rent snorkel gears. There is a cliff to jump from if you are up for that to, and you can watch some pelicans.

Going over to the Arc on our way to see some Whales we went by Pelican Rock. Even if there wasn't a single pelican there the rock formation is something to see. It truly is in the shape of a pelican. Take the glass bottom boat out and around the tip of the Arc, you won't regret it

We stopped here to snorkel, but it was nothing to write home about. Water is cool in February, too many other boats, and kayaks.
