Snapper, yellowfin tuna, grouper, sea bass, black, blue, and striped marlin–who knows what you’ll reel in on your open water adventure? Head out with a local fishing expert and make your very own local catch.
Take it back aboard the boat and have the chef prepare a fresh fish feast sure to satisfy your whole crew.

Want to take your appetite out on dry land? Cabo is home to several small towns where you can sample local cuisine with a side of sightseeing and culture.
Make a day trip out of it! And add activities to your itinerary like shopping, hiking, visiting museums, art galleries, and more. Small towns like La Paz, Miraflores, San Jose del Cabo, and Todos Santos are all great options for dining and day-tripping.

Don’t be shy about snacking
Sailing from port to port or dropping anchor near Cabo is thirsty business. And that salty air and sea breeze will likely have you wanting to snack–so don’t hesitate to ask.
Your crew is waiting and willing to whip up a dazzling display of crave-worthy snacks. Whether that means a fully-stocked charcuterie board or a sampling of lighter fare to tide you over until your next magnificent meal.
Are you more of a late-night snacker, a midday muncher, or a round-the-clock grazer? Whatever your nibbling habits look like, you’ll be covered. Give your crew the heads-up so they can be perfectly prepared with plenty of noshings whenever hunger strikes.
