Cabo San Lucas Bay 1968

Cabo San Lucas Bay in 1968

This a picture of Trollop that we sailed into the Cape in 1968. The bay was alive with fish because the cannery was pumping all the fish parts into the bay they did not use.

There were only two lights on shore at three in the morning when we arrived. The Hacienda and one in the village. See the smoke coming up from the cannery? Unbelievable what happened. Telling my age

None of the wreck remains. Families will enjoy exploring the tidal pools, and swimming is possible, too, but not recommended for small children. Access: A long drive in from the highway, enter the beach on the southwest side of the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Resort and Spa in Cabo del Sol at Kilometer 10.
