Ready to learn more about the adventures you can take? Here’s a look at the onboard activities you can try via Costa Palmas’ chartered yacht tours:

  • Morning Snorkel Cruise

    After breakfast, hop aboard our morning snorkeling cruise, where you’ll sail to secret spots to explore an entire world beneath the sea’s surface.

    During this three-hour tour, recommended for families with children older than seven, you’ll glide through the waters with tropical fish and fascinating marine life.

    Bring an underwater camera or put your smartphone in a waterproof case so you can snap pictures down below.

  • Scuba Dive in Cabo Plumo

    A Mexican National Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cabo Pulmo is one of the richest underwater sanctuaries in the world.

    Just 40 minutes from Costa Palmas, this protected sea offers scuba divers access to 800 varieties of fish, like angelfish, pufferfish, and parrotfish, along with more elusive visitors like manta rays, eels, whale sharks, and dolphins.

    Don’t know how to scuba dive? No worries. You can sign up for training lessons before you go out.

    Your tour lasts about five hours and is recommended for adults and teens.

  • Sportfishing at Sunrise or Sunset

    Before Cabo was the tourist destination that it is, it was known as a quaint fishing village. As word spread, sportfishing became the area’s first tourist attraction. Small bed-and-breakfasts popped up with grass-packed landing strips to welcome small charter planes of eager anglers. Today, tourists still come to Los Cabos to fish.

    If you want to reel in a big one, the best way to cast your line is on a chartered yacht tour out of Costa Palmas.

    On your tour, our experienced captains and crew will take you to the best spots known only to locals.

    Whether you want to reel in a prized game fish known for its size and fight, like a black marlin, or simply want to hook a tasty treat for dinner, like fresh tuna or mahi mahi, a charter has all of the gear you need to hunt for and snag your ideal fish.

    On chartered yacht tours in Los Cabos, you must follow the rules, which your crew will inform you of.  Many charters follow the CPR rule of catch, photograph, and release, but you can keep one marlin and up to four other species per person. Certain restaurants are even willing to cook your catch for you.

    As an added bonus, you can pick between a sunrise tour or a sunset tour. However, if you’re searching for a certain fish, check with staff to see which time is best.

  • Spearfishing

    Looking for something truly unique? Spearfishing is one of the most exciting ways to hunt and catch fish.

    For beginners, reef spearfishing is best. Our experienced crew at Costa Palmas has created an informative training session that covers safe diving techniques, local fishing laws, and hunting skills to help beginners be successful in the water.

    For more advanced anglers, blue water spearfishing takes you to the depths of the ocean to hunt targeted species like tuna, marlin, dorado, and wahoo.

    Spearfishing trips usually take about five hours and are best for teens and adults.

  • Whale Watching (seasonal)

    Baja’s famed peninsula is known for more than sport fishing. Humpback and gray whales and their offspring glide through the southernmost point from mid-December to mid-April. Board a Costa Palmas charter to see these majestic creatures cruise near the boat.

    A great activity for families with smaller children, this charter is a unique activity that everyone will enjoy.

    Bring your camera. It’s a good idea to put your smartphone in a waterproof case too, one that lets you take pictures.

    Expect a three-hour tour.

  • Swimming with Whale Sharks in La Paz (seasonal)

    You can swim with the biggest fish in the world: Whale Sharks. While the polka-dotted sharks look menacing and can reach 41 feet long and 47,000 pounds, they’re not aggressive creatures. They’re filter-feeding fish that mostly feast on plankton and are unbothered by human swimming companions.

    A certified guide will provide instructions and swim with the group.

    The gentle giants visit La Paz from October to April when the charter runs.

  • Sunset Cruise

    For a calm yet breathtaking water experience, consider joining the sunset cruise charter. You’ll watch the sun drop below the horizon in a two-hour ride through the Sea of Cortez with picture-perfect landscapes at every angle.

    It’s an ideal, short cruise for families who are new to yachting and want to try the experience as a group.

  • More about Costa Palmas Marina Village

    Marina Village is the heartbeat of the Costa Palmas Beach and Yacht Club. The marina offers yacht owners an expansive and luxurious place to moor their ship and sits alongside a freshly minted Marina Village.

    Home to elegant boutiques, a selection of signature and casual dining venues, an outdoor lounge area, a nightclub, and waterfront gathering spaces, Marina Village is a vibrant hub of activity that welcomes all who enjoy the sea-loving lifestyle that Baja offers.

    For those looking for more than a place to moor, Costa Palmas offers real estate options complete with captain’s quarters. Explore the beachfront yacht villas available along the stunning Sea of Cortez.

    Whether you bring your own yacht or are interested in chartering one, you’ll find what you need at Costa Palmas.

    Chartered yacht tours in Los Cabos offer you and your family a thrilling and memorable experience. Let our team arrange a cruise or tailor an overnight charter for you and your family.
