Check this comment from one of our clients
"We were 2 families with 7 children in the age range of 13-22 in our group of 11. We all enjoyed this activity. We sailed past the arch and had plenty of time to take photos, then we went a long way (east) to snorkel. I have snorkeled maybe 5 times in the past. This was by far the best and cleanest team. The guides brought food to attract fish. Nothing is worse than snorkeling without fish to see! While we returned, they served lunch. Lunch was good. And then the music started! We dance all the way back. VERY FUN!!"
If you are staying in San José del Cabo or in any hotel in the corridor between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, we have pickup service from the comfort of your lobby, however, it is important to mention it at the time of booking. As it has an extra cost.
Cabo San Lucas Snorkeling
Our boat departs from the Cabo San Lucas marina, our departures are in the morning to make the most of the day.
The boat is first class, with much space to move around without any problem, as well as bathrooms for our guests, an upper deck where you will have a free and unobstructed view of the horizon, so the photos will appear perfect, besides that, it will be the delight of people who like to sunbathe, of course there are also shady areas, this boat is designed so our guests spend a great day, here on our Cabo San Lucas Snorkeling Tour
Being a large catamaran, it is very stable and most importantly a very safe boat.
When you get on the boat you can taste a refreshing drink, waiting for the rest of guests who will take the excursion that day.
We pride ourselves on our crew, who will be attentive to each and every one of your needs at all times. Please feel at home and let yourself be pampered, to make it a beautiful snorkeling experience in Cabo San Lucas.
The Arch - Los Cabos Iconic Place
There is a saying in this place, which says that if you do not visit the arch it is as if you had not come to Los Cabos. Since this natural rock formation is where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, it is the most representative and visited place in all of Cabo San Lucas.
Here Baja California ends, after these rocks there is no more land, that's why many people call it finisterra or LANDS END.
Not only the arch, there is also the Lovers Beach, the window to the Pacific, the colony of sea lions.
A place you can not miss to take the famous souvenir photo, in all water excursions this is one of the obligatory stops.
The captain is in charge of moving the boat all around to get in the best possible position so that people can take the photos, keep in mind that there will be a photographer who is part of the crew who will be working for you to take the best photos.
After the visit to the Cabo San Lucas ARCH, the boat will head towards the CHILENO bay, which is one of the best places in the area to practice snorkeling
Beautiful rugged landscapes
The trip to the snorkeling spot, will be at moderate speed so that you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the horizon. The mountains in the background, with the city of Cabo San Lucas are the best frame for the best photos of your vacation.
On our way we'll see Playa El Médano, in addition to world class resorts and we'll have the opportunity to see many houses and mansions of the rich and famous that have made Cabo San Lucas their favorite meeting place.
Whimsical figures made of rocks, desert and an unbeatable sun, will be a perfect combination, preparing the way for snorkeling to be an activity enjoyed by both young and adults.
The Sea of Cortez is rich in marine life, it is very likely that we will see whales on the way, during the winter, we will also see sea lions, manta rays, and possibly more marine life.
During this part of the excursion the crew will be offering refreshing drinks and answering any questions you may have.
Snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas is an easy and fun activity. You can not miss this!
The turquoise waters are home to thousands of multicolored fish that delight all tourists who decide to do / practice snorkeling.
In this excursion we will visit one of the best places to practice snorkeling, EL CHILENO BAY, ideal for practicing this activity since it is a bay, so it is well protected from the wind and sea currents, water is crystal clear and very clean, allowing many fish to be seen.
This snorkeling excursion includes all the equipment you need, such as fins, masks and life jackets. You will always be floating in the water, unless you are a very good swimmer and want to dive to the bottom. Before jumping into the water, the staff will give a detailed explanation about how to use the snorkeling equipment, the most important thing for beginners is, how to have a good rhythm of breathing and what to do in case water comes into the breathing tube, in addition the signals in case you need help.
But trust me, after 5 minutes of trying you will see it's something very simple to do and you will be amazed by the amount of multicolored fish in these waters, goldfish, puffer fish.
Very close to where the boat docks there are some rocks, this is the best place to see different multicolored fish, try yourself, see if you can dive to reach the bottom!
Part of our crew will be leading the group in the water and there will also be people in a small kayak in case you need any kind of help or someone else does.
You just have to put things in the right perspective Los Cabos, is not Hawaii or the Caribbean
Important: You have to know how to swim to be able to do this activity, however, snorkeling is optional, if you just want to admire the landscape while enjoying a refreshing drink with your open bar included, this is a very good option.
Open Bar & Snacks
Throughout the excursion we have drinks, we have vodka, whiskey, rum, tequila, beers, soft drinks and juices
After snorkeling the crew will offer some delicious snacks to tide you over, so when you arrive at the Cabo San Lucas marina you can choose a nice place to eat a good meal.
On the way back, the crew will play music, all rhythms, they will be on the lookout for a great day, continuously bringing different drinks and checking to make sure everything is fine, if the mood is good, apart from being sailors, they are also dancers so if you want to learn some dance steps they are more than willing to teach you

"This was the best tour I did in Cabo. The crew was awesome, pointing out whales and serving drinks. We had music and delicious refreshments. Definitely saw fish while snorkeling and the water wasn't too cold, even though it was mid-January. The photo was a good deal and a great souvenir. Next time I go back, I would definitely book again! !"
"Boarded the Oceanus Boat Tour last week. The boat departed from the busy port of Cabo and came to show us the famous Arch. Ship was very clean and welcoming. Lots of drink options for the customers with good music on."
"We had a brilliant family snorkelling trip with our 9 and 7 year old daughters. Janet our guide was knowledgeable and explained lots about the local history and ocean life of the area... not only do you get snorkelling gear. Great fun and excellent value for cost. We also got some wonderful photos from our onboard photographer Jonathan! Do it, it’s lots of fun... my only recommendation would be some lite bites on the boat on the way home and a better choice of refreshments."
"Our boat was not very full so we got a lot of extra attention. The snorkeling was relaxing and it felt good to be in the water. Some fish and coral but not as picturesque as other places I've been. The crew were all very friendly and helpful"
"Amazing. Great wait staff. Always checking to see if we need new drinks. I would use them again in a minute!!!"
"The crew was great. There were a lot of fish, but only a handful of species underwater scenary was bare no reefs.Lunch was not great either."
"Snorkeling was super fun the family enjoyed the activities and the view of the ATC and holding the sea urchins"
"We went snorkeling with Oceanus and it was so fun! The party boys Armando, JJ, and Brian were so lovely for the 45 min stretch to the calmer Beach area. The driver was an excellent driver. The drinks aren't strong and the food wasn't the best but overall fun!"
"The boat ride was ok. I would have preferred a smaller crowd. The lunch wasn’t that great either, but I did like the crew because they tried to make it fun"
"Huge catamaran made sightseeing easy. Open bar and lunch made this trip a very good value. The staff was friendly and attentive."
