We took a glass bottom boat from Medano Beach to Pelican Rock. We prepaid for snorkeling gear at Bonito Tours and picked it up once we got to Pelican Rock. We got to go out to the arch and see Lover's Beach, the sea lions and then we went around the other side of the arch to see Divorce Beach.... More

We tagged along with a friend's scuba outing and they agreed to drop us on pelican beach for a few hours until the scuba was done. Has nice long shallow section for kids to play in, then drops off at the rock, where there is fantastic snorkeling. My 9-year-old and I (strong swimmers) hung out for a few hours with... More

We had our own snorkel gear so stopped along Pelican Rock and it was awesome snorkeling. The actual... More

Some brave locals dive/jump from the rock for thrills. It looks a little dangerous because of the jagged rocks. If you are a medium thrill seeker make sure to bring a good... More

We signed up for a boat trip with Maria Bonita Adventures (look it up they were awesome) - for $10 + tip we got a glass bottom boat trip to the Arc & rocks and we were then dropped off at pelican rock/beach for how ever long we wanted - we opted for 2.5 hours. The snorkeling was great and... More

While in Cabo, someone told us the snorkeling was good at Pelican Rock, which is located just to the right of Lovers Beach and El Arco/Lands End. It seems like a really small area, with lots of boat traffic but we decided to take a chance. We took a water taxi from the Villa del Palmar. The water was a... More
