One famous location a very short distance from Cabo San Lucas marina is called Lands End, also know as El Arco. This is the southernmost point of Mexico’s Baja. Cabo San Lucas is world famous for deep sea fishing as the popular striped marlin, tuna, mahi mahi and many other big game fish are quite plentiful for the avid fisherman.

For the many visitors that prefer more low key activities, there are boat tours out to Lands End as the rock formations and beach areas are beautiful. Two popular beaches right at the tip pf the Baja are known as Lovers Beach, and Divorce Beach. Lovers Beach is on the inside of the Lands End tip, on the Sea of Cortez.
Divorce Beach, which is connected by a the strip of white sand to Lovers Beach, although it is facing the Pacific Ocean. Both beaches are very popular for sunbathing and relaxing but Divorce Beach, being on the Pacific Ocean side, is very rocky with dangerous waves. Divorce Beach is not recommended for swimming with its large waves and strong rip tides. On the day of this fun footage, Janet and her husband were taking a short sightseeing tour out to Lands End. After the thirty minute excursion they started their way back into the marina. Within a few minutes they noticed a group of very large sea lions following along behind some fighting charter boats. Little did Janet know, the sea lions following them and the other boats were world famous. Pancho the Sea Lion is a local legend in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, one of the top fishing destinations in the world.
Many large sea lions lounge around the marina docks waiting for the return of the fishing boats in hopes they will be offered up some fight snacks. Pancho himself use to laze around waiting, but began following these boats, making the fish treats much more plentiful as he chased from boat to boat. Soon Pancho had many other sea lions following his actions, making some great entertainment for tourists and locals alike. These California sea lions are quite large. The female sea lions grow to around six feet long and 220 pounds, while the males measure in at 8 feet long and close to 800 pounds. While enjoying the video, take note of the boats when the sea lions board awaiting a fishy treat, that shows just how large and heavy they are. Cute and cuddly creatures of the sea.
