My wife and I LOVED the sunset cruise. We are here celebrating our honeymoon and our host Ivan made the experience really special for us. He was a great emcee and it was a great way to end another great day in Cabo. We hope to come back and have Ivan as our host again. Everything was great (entertainment, snacks, drinks, views). Wish it never ended! This is a must do in Cabo!

The boat ride was smooth and fun. Got to get close to the arch and they will take your photo in the front of the boat. Got to see a lot of fishes.

Fun for the whole family! Was a amazing experience that will last a life time.

Great time on the kayaking snorkel trip! Casey Michael was great!

We had an amazing experience with Kasey and his crew.
