Many travelers choose Cabo San Lucas as a vacation spot to celebrate various events due to its proximity to the USA and Canada, warm weather, and impressive resorts. No matter which hotel you pick, booking a Cabo yacht charter with us is always a smart move!
Located in Mexico, several national holidays are celebrated and Cabo San Lucas is happy to embrace its Northern neighbors’ holidays as well. A 3 day weekend is a great excuse to jet down South and charter a yacht to soak up the Baja sun and enjoy some Mexican hospitality. When you call us to book your yacht tour please feel free to specify if you are celebrating something special, and we will present you with options to customize the yacht you selected. From your puppy’s 1st birthday fiesta to your parent’s 75th wedding anniversary there is no occasion too small or large to celebrate on board a beautiful boat. We can create a custom package for you and coordinate the ordering of stunning balloon banners, custom 3D cakes, or high-end champagne if that’s your go-to special drink.
New Year’s Day is the first official holiday of the year, and being out on the water in Cabo is a fantastic way to set the tone for new year ahead. Whether the party is still going strong, or you’re in recovery mode, or whale watching with your whole family - you can’t go wrong with renting a boat in Cabo. A morning sightseeing tour, snorkel trip in the afternoon, or magical sunset cruise are all solid choices for quality bonding time and ringing in the new year in style. Brunch served on board with tropical fruit platters and endless mimosas is a popular choice.
No matter the cause for celebration we have the perfect yacht for you. Valentine’s Day AKA Saint Valentine’s Day, February 14th, is for celebrating love and affection. What better way to show you care than treating your significant other to a Cabo yacht tour. While all of our tours come with delicious food, hiring an onboard chef to pamper you and your sweetheart can set the mood. Our chefs work with you to create a custom menu and can cook pretty much anything that can be safely prepared aboard the yacht. Enjoying the company of your partner and enjoying freshly grilled lobster tails from the Sea of Cortez, while watching the sky change colors as the Baja sun sets is a memorable experience. Romantic packages like this are available year-round - perfect for anniversaries.
Over the years, Cabo San Lucas has become the premiere destination to host bachelor and bachelorette parties for future brides and grooms all over the world. A Cabo yacht charter will most likely be the highlight of your bachelor or bachelorette party. Whether you ask us to coordinate custom party favors with the bride or groom’s name or bring your own, making the boat feel festive truly enhances the mood. Hiring a live DJ to spin on the flybridge of the yacht allows you and your group to relax and put the phone down. Mariachi bands are always a fun way to pump up the energy of the party and enjoy great music.
Often times your bachelor or bachelorette group may not all be acquainted with each other and renting a boat can break the ice. All-inclusive resorts are incredibly affordable and can help the group stay together without worrying about breaking the bank, as the food and drinks are included. If you choose to stay on Medano Beach, we are happy to coordinate a water taxi to pick you up on the beach and bring you out to the yacht for a seamless boarding experience. Private villas more your style? Reach out to one of our team members - Best Cabo Yachts also has access to the best villas in Cabo, at the best rates.

If you celebrate Easter, visiting Mexico and renting a boat during springtime should be a bucket list trip for you. Unlike other places, Mexico begins celebrating with carnival - the wild celebration before the 40 days of lent begin. Following Carnival, there is Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday - all great days to enjoy the ideal spring weather on the Baja. Semana Santa also known as Holy Week is one of the busiest and best times to visit Cabo San Lucas. Yacht charters book up very far in advance for this week, and Easter Sunday is a very special day to rent a boat. Locals and tourists alike are out and about enjoying whatever they decided to give up for lent, and the streets and beaches are loaded with vendors selling tasty treats and fun souvenirs. Sometimes Spring Break and Easter week fall within the same time period, creating incredible parties.
Cinco De Mayo, The 5th of May, is a tequila shot and cerveza-packed holiday in the US, but not celebrated in most areas of Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is an exception because of the large ex-pat population and high volume of American tourists. Grab your amigos and some sombreros and come aboard a luxury yacht on this great excuse to party. Tacos served on our yachts rival the best spots in town and the margaritas are next-level yummy. After your yacht charter, you will be delighted with the energy of the restaurants and bars on the marina with live music being played and enjoyed for miles.
Memorial Day, Labor Day, and 4th of July are 3 day weekends in America and several Americans plan Cabo trips to embrace the extra day off of work and school. July 1 is Canada day and Canadian ex-pats living in Cabo and tourists alike typically visit the several Canadian-owned establishments in Cabo for lively parties. 4th of July on the water is a well-known Cabo secret! Medano Beach hosts huge firework displays comparable to New Year’s Eve! Reserving one of our yachts for the group guarantees the best view for this fun evening on the water. Medano Bay comes alive with the lights from all of the yachts reflecting off of the sea.
Celebrating the birthday of America in Mexico is quite an adventure. Speaking of birthdays, you can bet we celebrate them on our yachts like no other charter. Whether you are on a budget and wish to experience a Medano Float Party or celebrate a huge milestone birthday island hopping in La Paz we can build the best package for you. Custom balloon banners with your name (or the birthday boy/girl’s) are a great way to build excitement for the day and are a fun prop for your group photo before the festivities begin. Working with only the most experienced and creative vendors in town we can order a custom 3D cake featuring any designs and colors you wish. During your Cabo yacht charter, you can even fly your own custom flag. Custom orders should be requested as far in advance as possible, so reach out to book your yacht charter right after booking your flights down to be sure your desired yacht is available to celebrate your birthday. Best Cabo Yachts would be pleased to recommend the best airline for your departure city, or arrange a private jet service if that’s your style.
September 16th is Mexico’s official Independence Day. Main roads are closed downtown for parades and horse-drawn carriages and the streets are full of proud residents selling various traditional foods and clothes. The beaches get packed early in the morning so renting a boat to visit Santa Maria Bay and Chileno Bay is an excellent way to partake in the festivities from your own private yacht.
Dia De Muertos is celebrated similarly, as is traditional Halloween. Local nightclubs throw epic parties, and San Jose Del Cabo has a huge 2-day festival in it’s town square. Cruising a yacht from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose Del Cabo is a real treat - ask about disembarkation options in San Jose when you call or email to book your Cabo yacht tour. A costume party on a luxury yacht is a surefire way to be the envy of your friends and family back home trick or treating. If this is a family vacation there are several fun family options around town, and if you are staying at a resort there will most likely be a wide variety of celebrations and candy.
Christmas time in Cabo is unlike anywhere else on the planet. You may even have to remind yourself that you are in December since you can still wear shorts and sandals most of the day. The Cabo boat parade mid-month features a large fireworks display and even a drone show. Chartering your own boat to be a part of the parade is a festive way to the feel the holiday spirit. All of the yachts registered decorate with tons of lights and Christmas decor. Christmas Eve and Day are both very popular days to charter a yacht and make the best gift for the whole family. A Chileno or Santa Maria Bay snorkel trip or Whale Watching cruise are lovely in December. Whale watching season is November-April so you can purchase a gift certificate for a Best Cabo yacht tour to be redeemed at a later date if you want to be the hero of Christmas.
Finally, we close the year with our New Year’s Eve extravaganza. Our typical itinerary for a New Year’s Eve yacht tour begins with a gourmet dinner served upon boarding. As you arrive to the yacht you will be delighted by the decorations and lights and greeted with finger foods and refreshments. Once you have finished eating we will begin our cruise into Medano Bay where we eventually anchor and wait for the magic to begin. While cruising out and anchored you will enjoy the sounds of the DJ and cocktails amongst friends or family while scoping out the magnificent yachts and beachgoers Medano Bay and beach are famous for. Once it turns midnight, prepare your eyes and ears for the most fabulous firework display around while toasting champagne and reflecting on the last year while setting intentions for the next.
