Planning Your Luxury Yacht Vacation in Cabo San Lucas

A luxury yacht charter in Cabo San Lucas is the ultimate way to experience this exotic Mexican destination. Cabo is home to stunning beaches, vast desert vistas, and a rich variety of marine life, so what better way is there to explore it than in a private yacht charter?

Planning a yacht trip in Cabo isn't like your usual beach vacation. You're not just appearing and winging it. To really do it right and avoid headaches, you need to put in the legwork beforehand.


Finding the Right Yacht Charter Company

With numerous Cabo yacht rental companies operating, it's important to find one that meets your specific needs and expectations. Look for an established company with a modern, well-maintained fleet of luxury yachts, experienced captains, and crew.

Land's End Charters is a highly-rated charter company in Cabo, known for great service and luxurious amenities. Their fleet ranges from 48 ft to 65 ft motor yachts, all containing spacious cabins, kitchens, and entertainment systems. Check their website or talk to their charter experts to find the right private yacht for your group and budget.

Creating the Perfect Cabo Yacht Charter Itinerary

One of the best parts of booking a private yacht is being able to create your own tailored Cabo itinerary. Decide how you want to spend your days on the water and make a plan to hit all the highlights. Popular activities include:

  • Snorkeling and scuba diving at secluded sites like Cabo Pulmo, Santa Maria Bay, and the famous El Arco rock formation; spots teeming with tropical fish and marine life.


  • Big game fishing for trophy catches like marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna, dorado, and roosterfish. An experienced captain will know the best fishing hot spots depending on the season. Or just try your hand at hooking smaller game fish like triggerfish, jacks and snappers.


  • Visiting the beautiful Medano, Santa Maria, Chileno and Playa El Divorcio beaches. Swim, sunbathe, beachcomb and enjoy beachfront picnics

  • Whale watching and dolphin spotting. The best time to see these majestic creatures is November to April when they migrate to the area. An encounter with whales is truly unforgettable.


  • Cruising during golden hour to enjoy stunning Cabo sunsets.


  • Stopping to explore secluded coastal towns and villages.

Leave some time open for spontaneity based on weather and ocean conditions. Communicate your must-see list in advance so your charter captain can customize the perfect Los Cabos itinerary.

Provisioning and Planning for Days at Sea

A private yacht lets you avoid going on land for food and supplies if you prepare well. Be sure to get all your food, beverages, and other gear ahead so you can maximize your time on the water.


Here are some essentials to pack:

Food and Drinks

  • Produce, sandwich ingredients, and cheeses for quick lunches.
  • Grilling food like steak, chicken, shrimp, vegetables and kabobs.
  • Breakfast supplies like eggs, pancake mix, coffee, and oatmeal.
  • Salty snacks like chips, pretzels, and nuts.
  • Sweet treats like cookies, fruit, and granola bars.
  • Plenty of bottled water and electrolyte drinks to stay hydrated.
  • Beer, wine, and cocktails if desired.


  • Your own snorkel equipment if you have it, or rent from the company.
  • Underwater camera for amazing marine photos.
  • Light jackets and sweatshirts for cool evenings.
  • Hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, and lip balm.
  • Seasickness remedies if prone to nausea.
  • Beach towels, toys like frisbees, footballs, etc.
  • Fishing rods and tackle if interested in fishing.

With proper trip planning, your Baja California yacht charter getaway will surely be an amazing experience. Enjoy stunning scenery, luxury amenities, gourmet meals, and drinks while sailing off into the sunset!
