Outdoor tour and excursion specialist Cabo Expeditions is celebrating the opening of a new office near the Cabo San Lucas Marina this month, and locals and visitors are invited to stop by and check out the fresh digs.
The sleek, chic, and conveniently central new office offers more space for check-ins, as well as a gift shop with souvenirs and apparel, a deli and juice bar (the menu will be unveiled soon), and a photo area where guests can view and purchase pictures and videos from their recently completed adventures.
Along with its new look location, Cabo Expeditions has also unveiled a new-look website with some exciting new features, including custom tour building – just click on the area and type of adventure desired – and face-to-face conversations via Skype with local experts. Ask about activities options on land or sea, or simply get a little background on the area, from local history to top hotels and restaurants. Live chats cost $10 U.S. for every 15 minutes of conversation, and are available via online reservations.
Longtime fans of Cabo Expeditions need not worry. Despite the recent changes and upgrades, the company remains committed to the same core principles and values that have helped build its reputation over the past 20 years. In other words, here’s what hasn’t changed: the focus is still on memorable yet environmentally sustainable tours that showcase the natural wonders of Baja California Sur; led by friendly, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional staff (every guide is a PADI-certified rescue diver with emergency response training).
The season may be winding down on popular spring tours like Zodiac inflatable whale watching cruises and concerts – a sunset excursion with hydrophones used to hear the songs of the humpbacks – and swimming with whale sharks in La Paz, but Cabo Expeditions has much more in store for the coming months.
Cruises aboard Cabo Submarine’s 60-foot yellow semi-submersible are perfect for small children, who can watch an undersea fantasia of colorful fish from the underwater viewing cabin. SeaTrek and Snuba, similarly are also perfect for families seeking kid-friendly summer adventures. The former connects divers to an air supply via a lightweight helmet, and allows users ages 8 and up to interact with the surrounding marine life as they walk along the bottom of the Sea of Cortés. Snuba divers, meanwhile, are connected to an air supply that allows extended time below the surface at depths of up to 30 feet.
More conventional snorkeling and kayaking trips are also available, of course, although there is nothing conventional about the locations, which include gorgeous Cabo San Lucas, Chileno and Santa María Bays, and the spectacular, fish-rich waters surrounding the uninhabited Isla Espíritu Santo near La Paz. The ultimate wow-factor views, however, may be the aerial looks enjoyed by parasailing participants as they fly high above Land’s End (landlubbers, and those afraid of heights may prefer the company’s more informative and shopper-friendly City Tours).
Cabo Expeditions’ new office is located at Plaza de la Danza, next to the Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort.
