cabo submarine

our family has been traveling to mexico, on a regular basis for nine years.  i’m guessing a dozen trips, split between mazatlan and cabo – and, our friends the Blands have gone on almost every one of those trips with us. it’s ideal with our kids all being such good friends. needless to say, mexico is truly a home away from home. for most of those nine years, we have done the same old things, on every trip.  we’re in a south of the border rut.  

however, this past trip we shook things up and tried a couple of new things…  call us wild & crazy!

first, we ventured over to the gorgeous cabo marina, and we took an underwater adventure on the cabo submarine!

check it out:

we were face-to-face with so many fish, starfish, eels, etc – our kids loved it!

and, we had pelicans literally flirting with us. a truly beautiful day to be out on the water.

post-submarine-thoughts: this is my kind of underwater adventure! i’m not a huge fan of being underwater in the ocean with the unknown. when i was in my twenties, i had my share of run-ins with large creatures down there & i’ve reached my limit of post-trauma-nightmares. are you a fan of the underwater world?


second, husband and the kiddo’s paddle boarded for days & days! husband and i had first tried paddle boarding in maui with friends a couple of years ago, but we did not have beginner’s luck. it was hard. and this trip was the first time for our kids to try it. in the past ten days, miss thirteen proved to be our best paddle boarder, and she chose to do this almost every day we were at the beach! she would even give her siblings rides around while she did all the work! by the end of our trip, she was seriously getting good at it! and, what an awesome work-out!

have you tried paddle boarding? are you a fan of any water sports?

  1. I love, love, love paddle boarding! It is an amazing workout and so fun! We typically paddle board on Flathead Lake, not many oceans around us… I might ask for your help one of these days in planning a trip to Mexico, just some pointers! Looks like a great time with family and friends.

  2. How fun! I didn’t know there was such a thing as the Cabo Submarine. My in-laws have a time share in Cabo but we haven’t been for several years. I will have to remember that for our next trip. Last time we were there we chartered a boat and did some deep sea fishing. NOT my favorite experience there. I like to enjoy the ocean from the beach!

  3. It looks like you guys had a blast! I too am afraid of the ocean, you just don’t know what’s down there. I could never do a submarine though, so kudos. Paddle boarding looks fun, I’ll have to try it next time I’m south of the border.

  4. Yes paddleboarding is a fabulous core workout. We have a couple we use at our cabin in Bear Lake so i’m sure it’s way harder in the ocean, but loads of fun!
