You start from the marina in La Paz, a quiet town two-hours' drive from Cabo, and board the beautiful Island Cat itself -- a gorgeous and well-appointed catamaran with a diverse crew, including on-board dive master and marine biologist. Snacks and open bar are served on board as you cruise out to the Sea of Cortez, and many excursions are available, from snorkeling with whale sharks to swimming on remote and beautiful islands. Terry, the owner, is fantastic -- friendly, responsive, and all-around great guy. A freshly prepared lunch is served on board and you can spend your way swimming, kayaking, enjoying the local sealife, and just relaxing on the water. A lovely experience.
