This trip was much better than I had expected. We had 4 adults and a 6 yr old. Our trip started off with a stop by the Arch for plenty of pictures to be taken-as well as the option to have the trip photographer take them. Gorgeous back drop. The double decker boat was large and stable , so little chance of sea sickness on the open sea. Had a relaxing voyage up the Sea of Cortez as the staff served drinks and began cooking our freshly grilled beef, pork and chicken tacos., with fresh toppings. Yum! The entire staff was amazingly upbeat, professional and accommodating. They looked like they were loving the experience and tried to engage all. Quiet down below and dance music and a party with a fabulous tour guide, turned dj up above. Dance instruction, contests and fun for all the family. Easy to move between decks if you wanted quiet. Reached Chileno bay for some ok snorkeling, certainly not the staffs’ fault. All in all great value for a super fun time with great staff

Great boat ride/snorkel experience. Boat was easy to find & left on time. First they took us out to the arch for photos then we headed to a bay for great snorkeling, lunch & lots of drinks (poured strong). The crew was super fun & knowledgeable. On our way back the driver saw a whale and stopped the boat for us all to have a look. We were able to ride the whole way on the catamaran nets. Great music was played and the food was decent, tuna sandwiches with chips, guac & salsa. There were only about 20 people on the boat so it was not too crowded. It was clean and had working bathrooms. This was a great way to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend!

Crew was great. Music was good. Got to go snorkeling to see some fishes. The snacks was tuna sandwich, chips and salsa, and baggies of chips. Not too much variety but the drinks were great. The crew was always asking what we needed.

The best day trip in Cabo. We had a great experience kayaking and snorkeling. Highly recommend it. Out of all the excursions we went on. This way by far the best!

Excellent highly recommended activity, they are aware of safety and service
