Talofa Tallship

Talofa Tallship
San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Mexico

The tall ship, TALOFA, is the oldest American built cargo ship still working on the West Coast of the Americas. Her name, TALOFA, is a Samoan word that means Hello, how are you?much like the Hawaiian word ALOHA. She was the dream of two brothers who saw treasure in the Samoan waters while Merchant Marines during WWI.

They returned to research their find, copper ingots destined for the munitions factories in the South Pacific. A dream was born; to build the strongest, toughest ship ever built in the 20th century and sail back to Samoan and retrieve the treasure and become rich young men.

TALOFA now sails the beautiful Cabo San Lucas Bay.  You will experience the power of the sails and learn about the maritime history that evolved around the town of Cabo San Lucas. Step aboard, feel the 115 tons of wood beneath your feet, and see the crew dressed as pirates while you relive the excitement and adventure of yesteryear on the placid seas of Cabo San Lucas.


 In an area rich in pirate lore and buried treasure, those who think Baja is only about missions and cave paintings cannot afford to miss this aspect of local history.  This ship is similar to the one Thomas Cavendish used to take the Spanish treasure galleon Santa Ana in these very waters. Authentic period swivel cannons mount the rails, completing the feeling of stepping back in time.

On your way out of the harbor, you will hear about Mexico’s pirate maritime history as your professional captain and naturalist takes you past the world-famous arch of Land’s End and Lovers Beach, and out into the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.

We offer Sunset Sails all year round, Snorkeling Tours (April thru December), Whale Watching Tours (January, February, March), as well weddings. TALOFA, a one of a kind historic sailing vessel is family owned and operated. Our Open Bar, Gourmet Appetizers and excellent service make our Tours unique and unforgettable.
