Tour Summary

Santia Maria Cove is probably the best snorkeling location near Cabo San Lucas. The beautiful cove is located along the Los Cabos Corridor, between the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. The water is usually calm and clear compared to most other locations in the Cabo area.

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!

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Santa Maria Bay Private Sailing & Snorkeling is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!

Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
