I chose to get dropped off at Pelican beach when I took a water taxi to see the Arch and lover/divorce beach. I was told if I want to snorkel then Pelican rock is the best place for it. It was very quiet in the morning when I went, but got crowded quickly. The snorkeling was average. Lots of fish in the water but not much else. I got bored quickly and would have liked to hop on a boat to hang out at lover's beach but I never saw my boat again (I took the "sex machine" boat who also forgot to pick me up at the end of the day). There was also annoying flies on the beach which I didn't expect. The small area for snorkeling is roped off as there's boats on all other sides. Water in February was cold but still swimmable. The sun was nice and hot. The sun is gone by 4pm at this beach though. No bathrooms, but there was a few locals selling snacks.

There's a lot to see here! Huge pelicans, amazing geological formations, hordes of fish, sparkling blue waters - you have it all! I recommend stopping by here for longer periods of time if you're into snorkeling.

Yes, you can see the seals sunning themselves and you'll probably figure out who the alpha-male seals are. This area is best viewed by a boat or a tour excursion because the water is choppy in this area.

This view is from the Eastward side as you approach the Harbor, if the wind is from the West, the waves rise several feet above it and come down on your ship.

so if you want to see this in cabo book a sunset cruise. We decided to go with Sea Esta. The food was great and the drinks were even better, we stopped to swim and then got a great surprise when a pod of whales joined us as we headed out to the rock. Worth every penny.

Everyone goes by this site en-route to the fishing grounds just off of Cabo in the Pacific Ocean. Interesting view with lots of birds and other wildlife in the area.
