Cabo San Lucas was first established as a fishing village, way back in 1917, and fishing has remained a popular activity here for both locals and tourists. Cabo is known worldwide for its legendary marlin fishing.   Fishing reservations should generally be made in advance through either online, with a travel agency or directly with a fishing-fleet office located on the marina which is on the south side of the harbor of Cabo San Lucas.  With most fishing charters now taking advance online bookings, either directly or through online agencies, those without a reservation well in advance may be left with a limited selection of boats, perhaps uninsured or without English-speaking crews.

Water Activities

In addition to fishing, visitors to Cabo San Lucas can enjoy fun water activities like swimming, diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, boating, and whale watching.  Watersports are available on Medano Beach such as water skiing, wakeboarding, innertube rides, parasailing, and wave runners.  Glass bottom boat tours run constantly from the marina out to Lovers Beach.   You can book most of these activities with your hotel tour desk, or there are numerous websites that offer a wide selection and lower prices than the hotels if you book in advance.  You can also book these activities direct with the tour operators.  Many now have websites, or you can usually find their offices scattered around the marina.  Be careful of "coyotes" (unlicensed vendors on the street or at the marina) - and make sure to use a credit card whenever possible for the added security of your card's fraud protection, just in case.
