Wonderful ways we enjoy the East Cape, Los Barriles, and Sea of Cortez   

Dolphins: Many dolphin species off the East Cape, such as the Long Beak Dolpin, engage in bow riding boat waves. The dolphins are propelled forward by the wave, and they will often twist and turn and even swim upside down as they glide through the water. Wake riding is similar, when dolphins swim along and surf in the waves created by the back of boats and ships. Dolphins will often leap in the air when bow riding or wake riding. Did you know that the Killer Whale, or Orca, is a member of the dolphin family?

  Snorkeling and Scuba Diving on the East Cape of Baja. The Sea of Cortez offers excellent scuba, free diving, and snorkeling. There is a fantastic diversity of marine life easily accessible to divers and snorkelers. The convergence of tropical influences from the south and temperate conditions from the north bring together an amazing array of species. There are also local dive shops and charters available on the East Cape.


Camping on East Cape's beaches offers sun, sand, whale watching, surfing and fishing. Camping facilities vary from undeveloped sites with no amenities to fully equipped campgrounds and RV parks. The Sea of Cortez supports more than 6,000 species of marine life, including 900 kinds of fish, making its beaches prime destinations for fishermen, divers and seafood lovers.

"Punta Pescadero is one of my favorite destinations anywhere for camping and snorkeling." ~ Patricia


Tennis with an ocean view and breeze anyone? Yes, and there are plenty of great opportunities for biking, hiking, and other land-based sports on the East Cape. With our wonderful weather, these sports can be pursued year-round.

  How about golf with an ocean view and breeze too?  Absolutely!  There are many beautiful, challenging 18-hole golf courses to enjoy in nearby San Jose and Cabo San Lucas.  We hope to have one coming soon to the East Cape too, an 18-hole Trent Jones ocean-view golf course at the Cabo Riviera Marina.

East Cape Beaches: Los Barriles and the East Cape have an abundance of white sand beaches where at times, you can walk for miles without seeing another person.  The warm, clear water here is excellent for diving and world-class sport fishing, windsurfing, and kiteboarding. The East Cape is also home to beautiful resorts, a living coral reef, and quiet beaches where you can relax and renew.  

  Gray Whale Breeding Grounds: The waters off Baja California are home to several species of great whales including Blue, Fin, Bryde's, Humpback, Orca, Sperm, and many others. This is perhaps the richest area in the world for whale and dolphin diversity. The world's entire population of Gray Whales breeds in the lagoons on the west side of the peninsula. A favorite destination for gray whales and whale-watchers is San Ignacio Lagoon on the Pacific side of Baja Sur. More information about gray whales can be found at Gray Whales

We live in a desert: Baja provides some of Mexico's most dramatic sea and landscapes. This includes everything from vast and remote deserts, dormant volcanos, and wonderful old mission towns.  There are opportunites for beautiful hikes, from easy to difficult, to breath-taking vistas all over the East Cape. 

  Birding on the East Cape is an activity that most everyone can enjoy because birds abound and are easy to observe here. Areas to search are arroyos, shore, desert, estuaries, lagoons, and mountains. Baja Sur has dozens of species of shorebirds and pelagics, three species of doves, multitudes of raptors, hummingbirds, passerines, swallows, thrashers, quail, flycatchers, orioles, woodpeckers, wrens, cardinals, sparrows, waterfowl, corvids, to name a few. There are about 400 different species of birds, including 6 endemics: the cape pygmy owl, Xantus's hummingbird, gray thrasher, Belding's yellowthroat, Baird's junco, and San Lucas robin.
  Sport Fishing: The East Cape and Baja Sur have long been regarded as having some of the best places for fishing in the world. Marlin, sailfish, tuna, yellowtail, wahoo, roosterfish, and dorado are abundant in the blue waters surrounding the peninsula. Fishing licenses are available at the website described below.
  Humpback Whale Watching:  Humpback whales are found in all oceans of the world and are a highly migratory species, the longest migration route measuring almost 5000 miles in each direction. They spend spring through fall on feeding grounds in Alaska and migrate in the fall to their breeding grounds in Hawaii, Mexico and Japan during winter. At close range Humpback whales are easily distinguished from any other large whales by their remarkably long flippers, which bright white on the bottom and about one third of their body length.  There are only about 80,000 humpbacks worldwide.
  We Support a Catch-and-Release Philosophy.  East Cape Realty Group believes strongly in conserving our natural resources and supports the World-wide Billfish Foundation’s catch-and-release program.  In fact, 85% of billfish are released to fight another day, more than 1,600 this past year alone. East Cape anglers are asked to please fish responsibly and protect the fisheries for our future generations.                                                                                                                                             Capitan J.
  Sea Turtle Protection: Five species of turtles nest on the shore of the East Cape: The Green Sea turtle, Hawksbill, Olive Ridley, Loggerhead, and extremely rare giant Leatherback turtle. Los Barriles participates in important turtle conservation programs. Volunteers identify nests, make warning signs and barriers to protect incubating eggs, and help escort the hatchlings to the Sea of Cortez. More information about this important work and its dedicated volunteers can be found on their web page Grupo Tortuguero Los Barriles
