Kayaking The Arch and Lovers Beach

Cabo Pulmo is an incredible tour to the only natural living reef in Mexico and is one of our most popular tours! Located approximately 60 miles north of Cabo San Lucas, Cabo Pulmo has been aptly described as “the aquarium of the world” by conservationist & explorer Jacques Cousteau. American author John Steinbeck describes Cabo Pulmo as “teeming with fauna” and details the “electric colors” of the reef in his book “The Log from the Sea of Cortez”.

For half-day kayaking and snorkeling tours, there are the popular Arch & Lover’s Beach and The 3 Bay tours. Glide your way past the famous El Arco (The Arch) in Cabo San Lucas and follow it up with a snorkel out to Neptune’s Finger. If you prefer a more reclusive (yet close & convenient) kayaking & snorkeling adventure, The 3 Bay tour is a perfect match and our best snorkel trip due to the natural reef environment!

San Diego Kayak

While you can kayak virtually anyplace along the San Diego coast, La Jolla Shores beach is among the most popular. Protected from the brunt of the summer swells, it’s an ideal launching point to explore kelp beds, sea caves and sea lion colonies. Most of the guided tour operations are centered here, and many local kayakers launch from La Jolla Shores for touring, fishing and diving excursions. Other popular sea kayaking locations include Mission Bay, Coronado Island, Carlsbad Lagoon and Oceanside Harbor. It’s not uncommon to encounter dolphins, seals and even whales. And, in addition to open ocean, coastline and protected harbors, there are numerous freshwater lakes and reservoirs in San Diego County, many of them suitable for kayaking and, especially, kayak fishing.
