Where to Find the Best Snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas

Thrill the adventure seeker in you with snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas. While there’s plenty to do on land, diving into the crystal-clear water reveals another world beneath the surface. Don’t just take our word for it — oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once called the Sea of Cortez “the world’s aquarium,” thanks to its diverse and vibrant marine life. Here’s where you’ll find the best snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas.

Land’s End

At the far southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula stands El Arco, a dramatic rock formation in the shape of an arch. Known as Land’s End, this iconic setting is where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, where schools of fish glide along and sea lions splash. Avoid the rough waters of the Pacific Ocean side and stay instead in the tranquil bay, where you’ll spot a variety of marine life, from sea turtles to surgeonfish.

Santa Maria Bay 

Located between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Santa Maria Bay is a tranquil, crescent-shaped beach. In these calm, shallow waters, you’ll discover schools of fish representing all colors of the rainbow.

Chileno Bay

The sheltered waters of Chileno Bay makes this beach perfect for families. From brightly colored tropical fish to reefs teeming with ocean life, this laid-back beach offers some of the best Cabo San Lucas snorkeling.
