Private Charters


Sport & Spear Fishing

The Marylee is ideal for freediving, spear fishing, and the more traditional sport fishing. The large stern platform is ideal for getting in and out of the water for free diving and snorkeling. It has a substantial stainless-steel fold down ladder. There are three bait tanks and a 5-ton fish freezer-locker on board. Marylee is a full walkaround vessel with fishing spots astern, amidships, and in the bow. 

Sightseeing & Swimming

The Marylee is available as a private charter for the Whale Shark and Sea Lion encounter. When cleared into the whale shark feeding zone, we use a separate snorkel boat to get guests up close to the whale sharks. Everything is included in the basic charter rate. There are no extra charges. This is a snorkel only activity, as scuba is not legal around the protected whale sharks.

Scuba Diving

Marylee has hosted a lot of scuba divers over time. There is a compressor on board for recharging oxygen tanks. The extra-large swim step with heavy duty stainless ladder is ideal for getting into and out of the water. Considerable scuba diving was involved in the underwater photography work by the Smithsonian, BBC, Blue Planet and Stanford University film projects done from onboard the Marylee. 

Scientific Research

Marylee is the ideal vessel for conducting scientific research throughout the inside Sea of Cortez, and outside the peninsula along the Cabo Pulmo reef area, and out to the Socorro Islands or further north to Magdalene Bay and surrounding areas. From a week to a full thirty days afloat, Marylee can handle it. She comes with six fuel tanks, a thousand gallon a day water maker, and a washer-dryer. 

Pick-up Locations

We are generally able to provide pick-ups from most locations around Cabo San Lucas, the Corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, and on the way to La Paz through Pescadero and Todos Santos.

There is a ground transportation surcharge for pickups in Los Barriles, La Ribera and La Ventana for groups of less than five persons.

Discount Available

Returning guests receive a 10% discount. If you prefer to drive directly to our sailing catamaran, there is plenty of safe parking in Marina Palmira. Click on: Contact Us. Scroll to: Yacht Location.

Travel Times

The normal time to drive from the greater Cabo area to La Paz is about two hours, including a stop on the way over in Pescadero for coffee, restroom break, etc. 

Departure Times

Pick-up time is approximately 6:00 AM. You will receive an email the day prior to your departure, to confirm a more precise pick-up time for the next day. 



Semarnat, the environmental agency of Mexico, and Conanp, the National Park system, restrict the number of swimmers in the water with a single whale shark to five. The time limit in the whale shark feeding zone per reservation entry is 3 hours.



The winds and waves of the Cabo area are rarely an indication of winds and waves in La Paz. The sea around the whale shark feeding zone, is usually swimmable. Much more so than the Cabo area. However, that can change without notice. We are careful to exam wind and wave predictions daily, but wave heights and wind forecasts are frequently wrong. 



Some guests want extra protection in the colder months, where the air temperature gets down into the mid 70’s F. We have wetsuits and shorties available for free, in all adult sizes for both women and men. We also have private hot water showers and fresh clean towels for when you exit the water.

Ground Transportation

Typically, guests are picked up directly from the lobby entrance of their hotel or resort, but not always. Depending on a number of factors, guests may be requested to meet ground transport in a central location.
