Los Cabos-bound visitors will encounter a wealth of outdoor tour options along the southernmost rim of the Baja California peninsula, from deep dives beneath the Sea of Cortez to kayaking explorations of uninhabited islands and high-flying parasailing forays hundreds of feet above gorgeous area landmarks like El Arco and Lover’s Beach.
They’ll also find, conveniently enough, one local company capable of providing all of these unforgettable experiences.
Cabo Expeditions has been one of the premier eco-adventure activities outfits in Cabo San Lucas for close to two decades, thanks to a stunning variety of guided explorations set against breathtaking land and seascapes and featuring a cast of some of earth’s most incredible creatures.

Experience close-up encounters with leviathans of the deep like humpback whales and whale sharks (the world’s largest fish). Cabo Expeditions specializes in seasonal whale watching cruises (via high-speed inflatable Zodiac boats) and concerts (via hydrophones), as well as incredible swimming with whale sharks experiences off the coast of La Paz, Baja California Sur’s capital city.
Prefer a more family-friendly plunge into the local waters? Little ones will love the short but sweet one-hour cruises aboard Cabo Submarine’s 60-foot yellow semi-submersible; scores of colorful and unusual fish are visible from the underwater viewing cabin, and charts are on hand for easy identification.
And children and adults alike will be (sea) floored by Snuba and SeaTrek tours, both of which offer scuba-like underwater explorations without expensive or time-consuming training and accreditation.
SeaTrek connects divers to an air supply via a lightweight helmet, allowing users ages eight and up to meet and greet an astonishing variety of marine life, as they walk along the bottom of Cabo San Lucas Bay.
Snuba divers, similarly, are connected to an air supply that enables submerged explorations at depths of up to 30 feet.
Too nautical? How about adrenaline-pumping parasailing jaunts high above Land’s End, or, more sedate, shopper-friendly city tours?
In addition to its panoply of outdoor adventures, Cabo Expeditions is also showcasing a stylish new base of operations, conveniently set in a central downtown location and complete with gift shop, café and deli. There's even a dedicated photo area, where returning heroes can purchase pictures and videos of their recently completed adventures.
And the company has also premiered an updated website with some new visitor-friendly features, including custom tour building and informative Skype calls with local experts. (Ask about anything from hotels and activities to where to find the best local margaritas.)
Live chats cost $10 U.S. for every 15 minutes of talking time, and they're available via online reservations.
