Nice little beach, great water, good place to snorkel, the rock is pretty easy to climb and is very safe to jump off of -- it's a sheer drop in the water, so there isn't really anything to land on. But watch out for swimmers and scuba divers who may be below. ~25-30 feet tall. Take a water taxi out... More

We love to snorkel around Pelican Rock. It's like the fish don't even see you! You will see lots of colorful fish of all types. Not to be missed!

Great snorkeling and we even had sea lions playing with us. Just take an inexpensive water taxi and pack your own snacks and drinks

Nice place for pictures, we took a water taxi past this location and took some photos. I think this is where you can go snorkeling, or it could be pelican beach too.

We got dropped off after doing our Land's End tour so we could snorkel. The snorkeling itself was alright, not fantastic although the water was fairly rough when we were there so that may have had an effect on the number of fish. Still quite a few fish, but I've been to better places in the past. Getting off our... More

Underwater is how I experience Pelican Rock. Scuba diving around the rock is fun, you can go around a different depths and see different things. I saw a reef shark, eels, nudibranch, needle fish, trumpet fish and on and on. Large schools of fish swimming around the rock were fun to follow. Night diving here is beautiful when the coral...
