7 Reasons the Cabo Submarine Is the Best Tour You Never Heard Of

When you go on your Cabo vacation, do you want to:

  1. Learn about marine wildlife?
  2. Get a once-in-a-lifetime view of an underwater world?
  3. Get up-close and personal with Baja California’s colorful sea life?
  4. Explore what lives beneath the waves without getting wet?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it’s time to get onboard the Cabo Submarine! There’s tons of reasons why it’s an awesome option for people of all ages and interests, but here are just a few.

1. No equipment or training is necessary.

Traditional underwater activities like scuba diving require expensive gear and extensive training. Even snorkelers need a mask and a short debriefing before venturing in!

But the Cabo Submarine is a unique and totally hassle-free way to explore underwater. We provide the only equipment you need—the submarine itself. (Just don’t forget your camera!) And don’t worry about training. Simply get on board, and let our trained staff members look after the rest.

2. It’s perfect for all ages and activity levels.

Looking for an activity the whole family will enjoy? The Cabo Submarine is an enjoyable tour for any age—from young children to teens and even grandparents. It’s both relaxing and exciting: You can fully immerse yourself in the tranquil environment while feeling like you’re one of the many amazing animals that live in the Sea of Cortez.

Kids will experience sheer joy as they spot schools of rainbow-hued fish, and adults can appreciate a momentary escape from the hassle of being a visitor under the Mexican sun with a laid-back, air-conditioned ride on the Submarine’s lower deck.

3. It’s an excellent educational experience.

Not only will you get up-close and personal with a wide variety of sea life on this tour, you’ll learn about one of the world’s greatest marine ecosystems. Throughout the ride, an experienced marine biologist guide will share a wealth of knowledge about Baja California’s marine life and the natural history of the area.

Learn exactly why this region is so unique! It’s the perfect union of natural resources to attract an abundance of wildlife, like:

Did you know that about 90 species of fish are found only in the waters around the Gulf of California? The Sea of Cortez is one of the most spectacular and biologically diverse marine environments in the world, and we’re dedicated to protecting it. If you’re fascinated by oceanic wildlife and want to know what you can do to keep it from being destroyed, learn it all on the Cabo Submarine!

4. It’s a safe and comfortable ride.

Our knowledgeable staff members are educated in marine biology and trained to make your experience safe, fun, and relaxing. Your enjoyment and safety are our main priorities!

The spacious submarine cabin is outfitted with large, transparent observation windows. They’ll give you a perfectly clear, panoramic view of the underwater world. And air-conditioning on the lower deck guarantees a cool and comfortable ride as you approach the reef, even when outside temperatures are scorching.

5. You get a first-hand look at marine life—without getting wet.

Like seeing the water but not really getting into it?

Want to learn about Cabo’s amazing ecosystem but don’t really want to come in direct contact with it?

The Cabo Submarine is your chance to get everything on your vacation wish list. You’ll see an extraordinary amount of sea life in person—all in a comfortable, safe, and dry environment!

6. You can enjoy the surrounding landscapes too!

Our submarine doesn’t restrict you to underwater views. It’s semi-submersible, so the top deck stays above the surface during the tour. This means you can enjoy the breathtaking underwater views and take lots of photos of the surrounding rugged cliffs, pristine beaches, and striking vistas at beautiful Land’s End. Some might say it’s the best of both worlds.

7. It’s an unforgettable experience.

Teeming with marine life, the Sea of Cortez is known as “the world’s aquarium.” It’s home to nearly 900 species of fish and more than 20 types of aquatic mammals that migrate to the warm waters of Baja California’s coast every year to breed and calve. Take advantage of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see a huge variety of fish species and other animals in their natural habitat.
