We had a great experience on the private boat! The staff was friendly but also let us do our own thing. We had plenty of time to swim, snorkel, paddleboard, and climb rocks on the beach. Sailing out past the arch to view the sunset was amazing. The only downside was that the picture package offered by the photographer is overpriced with no tiers, it's either all or nothing. Make sure to take your own photos to remember the experience.

The snorkel, lunch and sail experience was exceptional. The crew was great and the tacos were wonderful. It would have been helpful to have the boat name when we arrived at the Marina, but we eventually found the boat. Highly recommend and will do this again if we go back to Cabo.

Loved this activity. The crew, especially Pedro, were attentive, fun, and prioritized the needs of the guests. The food was delicious and the dancing was fun! Our party of seven felt like we were well taken care of, and did nothing but enjoy the beautiful ocean, drinks, and food!

This boat experience was the best part of our time in Cabo. The crew was very helpful and took care of us well. The boat was fantastic and our time in the water was special for the adults and the children. I highly recommend La Isla.

Great trip, awesome food, staff was amazing! Loved every part of this tour
