Adventure in Cabo: Croc Experience
Jacques Cousteau hailed the Gulf of California as the world’s aquarium, and for residents and visitors, his famed words normally conjure images of whales crashing deep on the horizon or dolphins swimming alongside tour boats. For more adventurous types, the fun doesn’t end there. Thrill seekers will be happy to know that their marine adventures aren’t limited to snorkeling the waters of Cabo Pulmo, fishing for marlin, or enjoying a leisurely drink at sunset. There’s a more exciting option – swimming with the crocodiles.
It may come as a surprise, but it’s with good reason that visitors have a chance to interact with these amazing creatures right in Cabo San Lucas. Croc Experience, located in the northwest outskirts of town, works with organizations committed to rescuing and reintegrating abused species from around the world. The site is home to crocodiles, kinkajou – a monkey native to Central and South America, and lemurs – endangered primates native to Madagascar.
National Reptile Awareness Day, on October 21st, is a chance to reflect on the role reptiles play in a healthy, biodiverse world, and bring awareness to the conditions that threaten their survival. Croc Experience is a proud participant and advocate of National Reptile Awareness Day and seeks to educate visitors on the challenges reptiles face in an uncertain world and the role we can play in securing a healthy future for their native habitats.
Visitors of Croc Experience have a chance to touch and feel baby crocodiles, lemurs, and kinkajou, and immerse themselves in an underwater experience with the fully grown version of one of the world’s most feared reptiles. It’s not for the faint of heart, but then again, life wasn’t meant to be boring. Tours are offered four times a day, every day of the week, and to unwind, brave divers are offered bar service and an artisanal restaurant featuring an Italian menu. Help save the planet and have fun doing it – the team is excited to offer an experience you’ll never forget.
