Santa Maria Cove
Outside Cabo San Lucas
A City In Mexico

A beach and protected cove with clear water for snorkeling. It was 1km from Cabo and was a common destination for boats and bus tours. The water was clear and the weather calm which made for pleasant snorkeling.

A stone hill to the north of the cove blocked wind and created a peaceful setting.

Pelicans perched on the rock of a natural breakwater. Scant minutes after this shot was taken, they took flight and dove for fish.

A seagull floated just off the port side of the boat. It waited for lunch to finish so that passengers would toss food into the water.

A man knelt on a paddle board and sought the courage to stand. Eventually he did stand and paddled his board around the cove.
