When we travel with the kids, we try not to schedule out a ton of activities because we never quite know what they will be up for. On a recent trip to Cabo San Lucas the ONE thing we did schedule was a Cabo Sailing Adventures experience. For three hours we would sail around Land’s End and snorkel just off Lover’s Beach. Here are my thoughts on Cabo Sailing Adventure tips and tricks!
The morning of our private excursion (trust me, book a private tour!), a van picked us up promptly from our resort (if it’s a private group they will wait an additional 15 minutes.) The pier to catch the boat is about a 10-15 drive depending on traffic. Our van was air conditioned and nice considering it was already heating up- when we left the temperature was pushing 82 degrees at 10am!
One odd thing, as soon as we get off the shuttle we were approach by a few people asking if we wanted to rent a boat but we continued to walk along the dock and waiting for the Cabo Sailing staff to direct us to the boat.
Cabo Sailing Adventures: The Boat and Staff
We reserved the 38 foot boat but realized that the gave us the 42 foot boat! The boat was clean and well stocked for our three hour trip. Our crew was Eliel and Arturo. Warm and funny these two made our trip the BEST experience! First on the agenda, was heading out to El Arco and our crew made sure to point out rock formations and historic buildings on the way out. There were a ton of boats out so Eliel suggested that we go out a little further around Lands End. I loved that the crew pointed out sea lions and flying manta rays!
We then cruised past Land’s End and Divorce Beach out into the Sea of Cortez and it was perfect. We were literally the only boat in the area. With a gorgeous view of the Pedregal Resort, Arturo cast a line and caught a bonita fish. He let my Dad reel it in and the kids were completely fascinated with the process. 20 minutes later and with some help from another Cabo Sailing Adventures boat who provided tomatoes and jalapeños, we had a huge plate of fresh ceviche to eat!
Cabo Sailing Adventures: Food
The food was quite good, we were provided guacamole and salsa, fresh pineapple plus turkey sandwiches. Arturo prepped margaritas and cold beers for our group. Right before lunch I spotted a paddle board on the side of the boat. I was able to paddle board after a quick lesson from Arturo on balance. We were able to easily get in and out of the water, and they had a hose with water to rinse off plus thick towels to dry off with.
My daughter was bit several times by the sea fleas while snorkling and the crew made sure to slather her with a soothing cream. Another person in our group got sea sick and Eliel and Arturo made her as comfortable as possible.
Most importantly, our entire group had fun and felt really safe. The crew was professional and made sure we were having a great time. Cabo Sailing Adventures, we will be back!!
Cabo Sailing Adventures Tips and Tricks:
Prep a music list and the crew will hook up your phone to the sound system!
Pack plenty of sunblock, there isn’t shade on the deck of the boat.
Make it known if you want to paddle board or snorkel ahead of time so they can prep!
