Snorkeling Tips

  • Choose a reputable charter or tour company that have bi-lingual guides and be aware of what is included in your package. Check for cancellation charges before you sign anything.
  • Bring lots of sunscreen, a towel, food and drink especially if you snorkel on your own.
  • Hydrate at all times and be especially aware of kids traveling with you.
  • Leave all valuables at your hotel or in a safe place. Carry only enough cash for your day trip.
  • Bring a water proof camera if you want to take souvenir photos of you and your group.
  • Do not take any shell or souvenir from the sea. It may not be allowed.

Cabo Snorkeling Safety

  • Do not snorkel on your own. If this is not possible, make sure you let someone know of your whereabouts in case of an emergency.
  • Stay close to shore. Do not be tempted to snorkel further than what you think is safe. Currents are strong and you will need energy to swim back to safety.
  • Do not touch the marine life. Keep a safe distance from them and don’t do any sudden movements that may startle them.
  • Be aware of your surroundings: where the rocks are or how strong the surf is.
  • Be aware of the seabed. You don’t want to touch any coral or fish that may have a harmful effect on you.
  • Learn basic first aid for you and your family’s protection.
  • Always check weather conditions before heading off on your trip. Heed all beach warnings.
