The Sea of Cortez, unlike the Pacific side of Baja, is crystal clear, calm and flat much of the time These conditions offer an opportunity for various water sports:
|Fishing: Two local fishing captains, Vicente, and Antonio, can pick you up right in front of the house for a day of fishing, complete with all of the gear you need to catch that Marlin or Dorado. Lunch at the Giggling Marlin in Bahia de los Suenos, where they will cook your catch can also be arranged. |
|Whale Watching: During the spring months, roughly January through March and into April. You can spot an occasional whale while having your morning coffee. If you want a really memorable experience, head to Lopez Mateo or San Carlos on Magdalena Bay on the Pacific side, for a chance to see hundreds of humpbacks and their young during their yearly migration.
|Snorkeling & Diving:Our little bay contains an active coral reef where you can see many types of tropical fish, as well as colorful coral. We have some gear for the use of our guests. There are two nearby areas for scuba equipment rental and tours. Just down the road from us is Cabo Pulmo, with three scuba outfitters and diving opportunities at Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park. Near Los Barriles is Vista Sea Sport, which rents equipment and organizes scuba tours to all the best reefs in the area.
|Wind Surfing and Kite sailing: If you love wind or kite surfing, you're in the right place. The East Cape is one of the top 5 wind surfing and kite boarding destinations in the world. The season is from November to March. Bring your own equipment, or check out Vela, just south of us in Los Barriles, for lessons and equipment rental. Click here for Vela
