From left: Enjoy views of Land’s End during your outing with EcoCat; go island hopping with SunRider Tours. 42 Los Cabos Magazine | Summer 2016 FROM LEFT: Joseph A. Tyson; Courtesy Sunrider is offering a two-for-one deal on any activities booked directly through its website or Facebook page. Go Extreme The EcoCat (www.caboecotours .com) company may be best known for its luxury catamaran of the same name. The beautiful watercraft was built in France in 2000, and it earned its distinction as one of the largest catamarans in the world—and the smoothest sailing. But EcoCat is also home to the EcoToo, a high-speed Zodiac that’s the centerpiece of a brand-new tour: The eXtreme Zodiac Dos Bahias Snorkel departs at 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday during the summer. The smaller size of the Zodiac allows for up-close views of the arch at Land’s End as well as the sea lion colony. After a detour to check out the Pacific-side beaches (accessible only by boat), the EcoToo zips over to Pelican Rock so that guests can snorkel. Afterward, it’s time to meet up with EcoCat and grab a kayak for even more adventuring. Island Hop If you think Cabo is hot, wait till you visit La Paz. The capital of Baja California Sur is often ranked as one of the three hottest cities—we’re talking temperature—in all of México. But the detour from Los Cabos is well worth it. The Baja Peninsula is home to hundreds of islands, but the Espíritu Santo Archipelago are among the most beautiful. Journey there with SunRider Tours (www.sunridertours.com), and you’ll get to see what earned the site UNESCO World Heritage status. Explore the turquoise bays, swim with hundreds of playful sea lions (be prepared; they like to nibble), and snap photos of exotic birds and sea life. On this outing, you’ll get to ride in one of SunRider’s catamarans as well as smaller, more intimate pangas, or skiffs. The crew will also treat you to a tasty box lunch and a side trip to La Paz’s famous Balandra beach, home of what locals call El Hongo, or “mushroom.” Y
