Frequently Asked Questions
Where do we meet to board La Gringa?
La Gringa is normally docked at “E” dock at the Cabo marina. Please wait for your host or a crew member at the security gate at the top of the dock ramp on the Malecon. Please refer to your confirmation for information on location and/or departure information which may be specific to your tour or departure date.
What do I need to bring?
Bring your camera for sure. You may want to bring a towel if you plan on getting into the water and a great attitude otherwise! We’ll supply the fun and everything else you might need.
I have my own snorkeling gear. Should I bring it?
You can bring your own gear but we’ve got snorkels, masks, fins and life vests for you to use.
What kind of food and drinks are included?
Your tour includes and open bar with cheerfully served bottled water, pop, juice, beer, wine and and assorted liquor including delicious margaritas. We also offer chips and tortillas with handmade guacamole and salsa too! Usually have an assortment of melons it too. Sooo good! Light sandwiches (hero style) are provided on the afternoon snorkeling tour. If you have something special in mind let us know and we’ll see if we can accommodate you.
I get sea sick sometimes. Will this be a problem?
We try to provide a smooth and comfortable ride for our guests. La Gringa is very wide and stable and slices through the waves easily with her narrow pontoons. We do occasional encounter rougher seas if we are tracking whales further out but we will try to balance the quest for whales and your comfort and enjoyment. Our snorkeling tours are in calm shallow waters and generally very smooth and comfortable.
