See The Marina & Conditions in Real Time

Here is a link to our webcam, that shows the marina and mouth of the harbor. You can zoom in on the image or change the size of the display.
This will give a better idea of true conditions. Hope this is a useful tool for you

Hurricane Paul Passes By But Leaves Rough Seas

It seems like the hurricane has passed by us and that we are seeing the tail end of the outer bands, nevetheless seas look rough, as seen in the photo above. This was taken at noon from the Pisces offices, looking out over the marina and towards Cabo Bello. Waves can be seen hitting the point which is about three miles away. We consider that the port will be closed tomorrow but probably open on Thursday. The Los Cabos Billfish Tournament was set to have the first day of fishing tomorrow, but it looks like it will be reduced to a two day tournament.

Hurricane Paul Assaults Baja Coast

All the charts show Hurricane Paul missing Los Cabos, with it not even being included in the cone, but right now we are in the midst of a tropical storm, which are the outer bands of this hurricane, a catergory two, predicted to make landfall later today further up the Baja. It was around 4.30 am this morning when strong winds began to batter the coast as the storm moved parallel to Cabo. We are experiencing intermittent rain, which is heavy at times. The port and schools are closed today. Right now we are beginning to see some clear patches of sky. The good thing is the storm is moving fast so should be past us soon. Shown are a couple of pics taken at 8.00 am on the Pacific side close to Cabo Falso, better known as the Old Lighthouse. More updates as the day progresses.
