April 9th Cabo San Lucas Marlin Report

By Cabo San Lucas Fishing ReportNo Comments

Captain Gilbert and his crew departed bright and early aboard the 60′ Yacht Blue Sea, in search for Marlin.

Generally the best area to start looking for Marlin is just a 6 miles from the El Arco.

That is where the you can either head to the Pacific or Sea of Cortez

They  set trolling lures on outriggers and slowly headed 2 miles past El Arco by the light house.

It is one of the best areas for a reason, didn’t take long before landing a Beaut of a Marlin.

Caught and released this Beaut of course.

Santa Maria Snorkel Tour

Santa Maria Snorkel Tour

By Articles, Cabo Fishing BlogNo Comments

What’s the best time to book your Santa Maria snorkel tour aboard one of Blue Sky’s yachts?

Some choose to leave for earlier in the day, in order to rest up and catch Cabo’s famous night life

Others choose to book their Santa Maria snorkel tour later in the day so they can spend part of the time in the water and the other half of the time aboard, enjoying the Sea of Cortez and the many sights.

A late afternoon Santa Maria snorkel tour could also include watching the spectacular sunsets as you are lulled by the motion of the waves.

Famed ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau called the waters around Cabo San Lucas, “the World’s aquarium.”

Your Santa Maria snorkel tour starts with an exciting ride on board one of the Blue Sky’s luxurious yachts.

You will cruise past famous Cabo San Lucas landmarks such as El Arco and the sea lion colony, hidden coves and beaches on your way to have the experience of your life with the ultimate Santa Maria snorkel tour. We’ll cruise along the Lands End peninsula and El Arco (The Arch),  past Lovers’ Beach and straight to the famous Cabo Arch where a colony of celebrity sea lions lives.  It’s not a complete Cabo snorkel tour if you don’t get a fabulous photo of you and your group in front of El Arco.

At Land’s End, pelicans love to roost on Pelican Rock and the seal lions will greet you with loud barks as they swim and play in the water.

In Cabo San Lucas, the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez here – “Lands End”.

Aquatic life in between oceans travel here to dine on the nutrient rich water so even as your Santa Maria snorkel tour hangs out close to the reefs,  we frequently encounter larger animals.

Humpback whales have even been known to swim up to the entrance of Marina in Cabo and follow the boats along their ocean cruises!   Whale season ends in April, but don’t worry you may see dolphins and skate breaking the ocean waves!

You will also find the usual tropical fish families such as: Angel fish, tangs, puffer fish, porcupine fish, trumpet fish, damsels, butterfly fish, wrasse and many, many more.

The Los Cabos area is home to an amazing variety of fish life.  The water is clear, and as well as lots of reef fish, you may spot sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea stars, crabs, sting rays schooling mobula rays, turtles, sea lions and pelagic fishes.  There are usually lots of colorful tropical fish here too.

We will cruise past the Arch on our way North to Santa Maria Bay, drop anchor at this spectacular location where you’ll swim, snorkel and have time to relax as part of your Santa Maria snorkel tour.

Protected from ocean swells, the water is usually calm at Santa Maria Bay, great for beginners and experienced snorkelers.

During your Santa Maria snorkel tour, you can elect to have the tour include food and drinks to be served.  Our crew will take care of all your needs, from Tacos to Tequila.  And, we always have fresh water available to keep you hydrated!

Our yachts have plenty of seating aboard too, with luxurious, air-conditioned salon/lounges with ample seating, flushing head and a small area below to change clothes in.  Or ask the Captain if you can come up to join him and get the bird’s eye view as you motor along the coast line

Before hitting the water, your Santa Maria snorkel tour includes an instructional briefing concerning basic boat safety, in and out of the water.

When you embarking on your Santa Maria snorkel tour and cruise, typically flippers, masks, snorkels and life jackets will be provided.  You may be required to wear a life jacket at all times, even if you’re an experienced swimmer.

Be sure to bring a waterproof camera, sunglasses,  swimwear, non-slip shoes, towels and sunscreen.  We suggest water proof sunscreen like BullFrog,  that stays on all day, in and out of the water.

Your Santa Maria snorkel tour should be a stress free experience and life jackets can give you peace of mind, especially for people who are not strong swimmers or for first-time snorkelers.

Once you are in the water, relax and float.  Get used to your snorkel gear.  Put on your mask and practice breathing through the tube.  Sometimes it’s hard to remember to breathe through your mouth.  Then stick your mask underwater and enjoy the view while you practice breathing with your mask underwater.

In 10 minutes or less, you should be comfortable enough with your gear to take a slow float around the boat.  And soon you will be ready to explore every nook and cranny possible!

During your Santa Maria snorkel tour, it’s not unusual to find clouds of other candy-colored fish are plentiful at this lovely scallop-shaped bay.

Santa Maria Bay has one cove, pebbly sand, and also an amazing snorkeling spot to southwest.

Have the crew toss you a beer as you lounge in the sunshine afloat a Lily Pad, a large floating raft that can accommodate you and several of your friends.  Or swim ashore for photos on the beach with your group.  Our crew will gladly snap photos of you and your group.

Join us for the best, Santa Maria snorkel tour available with Blue Sky crew.
