Cabo San Lucas Marina Reopens For Tourist Activities

Last Updated

Just days ago it was reported that the Cabo San Lucas marina closed down with no notice to tour providers or tourists.   

The closing of the marina was due to an expired concession of the company that ran the marina, IGY Marina.   

That concession expired on April 1st, but it wasn’t until April 11th that the gates were locked without warning.   

Now the Cabo San Lucas marina has already reopened for tourist activities.

How Tour Providers Were Notified Of The Marina’s Closure  

According to reports, tour providers went to work on the morning of April 11th unaware that the marina would be shut down.   

It was only when an alarm sounded that morning and an announcement was made that boats would have to return to the marina and that the marina was closed that anyone knew what was going on.   

Little information was given as to why it was closed or when it would reopen.

Limited Information On The Marina’s Status 

Even now that the marina has reopened tour providers are still unsure about the status of the marina.   

It simply reopened, with no information provided regarding which company would be operating it for the foreseeable future.   

According to reports, a new concession was granted to the Navy by the Administration of the National Port System, also known as ASIPONA, but the status of the IGY Marina company is still unclear.

The Future Of Cabo San Lucas’s Marina 

Tour providers are able to access the marina with the same keys they held before closing, but it seems that only some docks are accessible.   

One tour provider said that they were told that “there was a conflict with IGY Marina that was not fixed 100%.”

Tourist Activities Offered At The Marina 

Boat tours and water activities are popular in Los Cabos, so there are many different types of tours available.   

Boats can also be chartered for fishing or sailing excursions.   

If you’re looking for something a little less expensive, though, some of the tours and activities offered at the marina are snorkeling and diving excursions, dinner cruises, Arch and Land’s End tours, party cruises, sunset cruises, pirate ship dinner shows, and glass bottom boat tours.

How To Book Cabo San Lucas Boat Tours 

There are several ways to book a boat tour in Cabo San Lucas.   

The best way is to book in advance so that the tour you want doesn’t sell out, which has been known to happen.   

You can book in advance by visiting the different tour company websites or through a third-party booking site like Viator, which has a great refund policy.   

You can also book tours once you arrive in Los Cabos; just be sure to book at an official kiosk in the marina and not with someone on the street claiming to be a tour operator.

Water Activities That Can Be Booked Outside Of The Marina 

Some water activities can be booked without having to go to the marina.   

Activities like kayaking, paddleboarding, and jet skiing can often be booked with a vendor on Medano Beach, Cabo San Lucas’s most popular beach.   

As with anything else, though, shop around for the best price and be sure you’re booking with a legitimate vendor.
