Santa Maria Bay Private Sailing and Snorkeling

Santa Maria Bay Private Sailing and Snorkeling

A visit to the gorgeous and famous Santa Maria Bay off the coast of Cabo is ideal on our Santa Maria Bay Sailing and Snorkeling private charter. A private charter is the ideal way to show you and your group the beauty that surrounds Cabo San Lucas. This unforgettable private charter offers guests the utmost in attention and professionalism, taking up to 20 guests on a personalized journey through the waters of Cabo San Lucas to head to the beautiful coves of Santa Maria Bay as well as the famous and full-of-life Chileno Bay.

Snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas allows you to see a unique and active world beneath the surface of the blue sea. With this private excursion, you and your guests can choose between two beautifully designed and state of the art sailboats. Our 30' Newport sailing vessel "Chica" can fit up to 8 guests and our 42' cruising yacht "Freestyle" can take up to 20 guests! Each Santa Maria private charter takes you out to two unique bays off the coast of Los Cabos, first to beautiful and charming coves of Santa Maria Bay and then to the expansive marine landscapes of Chileno Bay. Both of these bays offer visitors with excellent snorkeling opportunities. You will be provided with the latest in snorkeling gear to best navigate your way through these waters. Our friendly and bilingual staff will be on hand to help you learn how to best make use of your snorkeling gear.

We offer this tour in a 3 hour duration as well on either boat, for $74 less. On our 3 hour private charter we head to our most lively snorkeling destination of Pelican Rock! Pelican Rock lies within a protected area of the Cabo San Lucas Bay and only a few charter boats share the rights to use this special destination. Please call our office to inquire about the 3 hour charter if the 4 hour charter doesn't seem to fit into your schedule, or if you'd just prefer to take a less expensive charter.  This charter doesn't lack any of the treatment or luxuries of our 4 hour charter, it provides a closer snorkeling location to allow for the shorter trip.

This private charter not only includes a smooth and sight-filled ride in the waters of Cabo, it also includes a delicious light lunch and an open bar. All you really have to do is bring some sun block, comfortable clothing and bathing suit, and you can even bring your iPod or MP3 player to hook up if you want to hear your own music. This tour is the perfect way to experience the beautiful waters of Los Cabos in style!

What is the best time of the day to go?
The best time really just depends on personal preference. The morning usually has milder temperatures (it can get a little hot in the afternoon), while the afternoon trip usually sees less boat traffic, and our late afternoon trip offers sunset viewing. 

I can do this trip in 3 hours or 4 hours?
Yes, we offer 2 versions.  The longer one going to our featured Santa Maria location and the shorter heading to Pelican Rock (our closer dive location).  There is a $160 price decrease for the shorter tour, all other services remain the same, gear, food, drinks, etc.

What do I do if I need more than 4 hours?
No problem, we can extend your charter at a rate of $160 per hour.  We pride ourselves on being extremely flexible!
