We recommend flying into Cabo San Lucas (SJD) the day before your trip starts. You never know what the airlines might do with cancelled/delayed flights, or lost baggage, and coming in early eliminates any stress. Our Cabo Dive Centre in the Tesoro Hotel is right on the main boardwalk and we would be pleased to take you out on a complimentary warm-up dive when you arrive.
We will meet you at the Dive Centre by 8:30 am the next morning to whisk you up to Cabo Pulmo and your waiting yacht. Alternatively, if you fly into Cabo today, we can pick you up at the airport after 1 pm and transfer you directly to Cabo Pulmo. Please note that for the driver’s safety we don’t drive the remote roads after dark and will not be able to accommodate late afternoon arrivals.
Champagne and appetizers will be waiting for you onboard the Gallant Lady, and after our welcome aboard briefing, we would love to get you in the water for your first dive of the trip!
Full dive days plus, of course, much more:
It’s entirely your option to start with a lazy morning; otherwise, we’ll have an early breakfast ready and a local captain and divemaster waiting in their panga to speed over to the nucleus zone for a 2-tank dive before lunch. Your yacht will be anchored in the protected and calm waters in front of the beach at “Los Frailles” in compliance with national park regulations and just around the corner from most of the Cabo Pulmo dive sites. We limit each panga to 6 – 8 divers plus divemaster. We may also dive around Los Frailles.
After heading back to the Gallant Lady for lunch – and a hot tub?? – you will have a tough decision to make. You can choose between heading out for another 2 tank dive, or head off for some kayaking or paddle boarding, take a long walk on the beach, hike into the desert, or go for a mountain bike ride! Or, you might just decide to relax on the yacht. If you are visiting in-season, you may even have a humpback whale or two swim right past the boat!
We traditionally have cocktail hour at 6 bells ( or 7 pm, which might be a bit confusing but it’s how we talk as sailors! ) with microbrews, fine wines, single malt whiskey and our signature gin and tonics. Dinner to follow, then a bonfire on the beach, an evening presentation, and lots of relaxation.
The last day of any trip is always sad for us. After breakfast, it will be time to say goodbye. We will likely depart by 1100 for either SJD airport, or our dive centre in Cabo San Lucas. If you are joining one of our Guadalupe great white shark trips, we will be sure to provide seamless transfers to connect you with the flight to Tijuana and pick you up in TIJ to transfer you directly to our hospitality suite in Ensenada and your waiting dive ship. If you are joining one of our Socorro trips, you may be able to board same-day in Cabo San Lucas. Otherwise, it’s our job to assist you with arrangements for a local hotel, condo, or private villa.
