Default Sailing Cruise in Cabo with small children?

Anyone gone sailing with Yael or other sailing companies with Cabo for snorkeling? Do you think it's a safe trip for a 1 year old and 4 year old?

We want to snorkel pretty bad, but want the kids to be safe as well... any recommendations?

Personally, I would not do it. Cabo is not a calm beach area. You have to be able to jump out of the boat and deal with sometimes very heavy surf to get to the beach area. I've seen strong, healthy looking adults struggle, so adding very young kids to the mix makes me nervous just thinking about it. There is just too much opportunity for things to go wrong and the result could be horrible.

No, I don't think it's a safe trip for a 1 year old and 4 year old. I know Carnival has babysitting services (at a fee) you can use them for your excusion. I think you will enjoy the trip more if you don't have to worry about your childern's safety.
