I love boats. Love being on the water. Love choppy waves and salt water spray and seeing the land recede in the distance.
I experienced all that and more on my Cabo Adventures cruise. It’s hard to say what I liked best about it.
The boat ride into the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean?
The close-up view of the famous Cabos San Lucas’ Golden Arch?
The spot below is called Land’s End because, as the crow flies, if you followed a line south from here, you would not touch land again until you reached the South Pole. My imagination traveled that abstract line faster than any boat could ever get me there.
We saw sea lions.
And perhaps, best of all — a whale! Apparently the first whale sighted this season. They weren’t really due to be in Cabo for another two weeks. But there she was, swimming and breaching in the Pacific waves as our boat captain took us closer and closer to see her. It was an incredible stroke of luck and made our excursion that much more phenomenal.
We enjoyed a light lunch and margaritas while we docked near a beach and had the chance to swim and snorkel in the wonderfully warm waters there.
You can see why I can’t pick my favorite part of the cruise. Only my least favorite part: the end.
