Franke, just found this message from Tam with more info:
I have never cruised before (ist cruise will be next month). I have spent alot of time in Cabo and the ATV's are fun. WOuld recommend snorkeling in Santa Maria Bay-- there are numerous boats/Catamaran's that go there (~25" boat trip up the sea of Cortez), for a less expensive snorkel trip, Pelican Rock (to the left-- when standing on the sand at Lovers Beach-- looking up the seat of Cortez) is also a great place to snorkel-- water is more clear in the am usually. It usually only costs ~$3-5 per person (they usually start at $10) if you just arrange a water taxi from the beach in front of all of the hotels. FYI- Lovers Beach is out near the Cabo Arch-- one side of the beach faces the Pacific Ocean and the other side faces Sea of Cortez-- Cabo town is all in the port-- so not necessary to book a tour of the town. Parasailing can be easily arranged on the beach without reservations and price is very negotiable depending on the season

Two weeks ago we had our first cruise and Cabo was our first destination. When we got off our ship's tender there were people on the dock waiting to grab you and show you around. we took a glass bottom boat for a cruise around the arches and it was $24 for the two of us. The tour took about 45 min. and then he dropped us off at Lover's beach to swim, snorkle, etc. and asked what time we wanted him to pick us up. He was there on time, got us safely back to the dock and it was a short walk to the shopping and to Cabo Wabo. Everything is made very easy for the cruise ships. You can probably find great deals once you arrive, just make sure you barter on prices, hey, that is half the fun.
