Casey is beyond capable of making every Cabo trip an amazing adventure. The arch is absolutely beautiful with the company to match. He and his wife run this travel company and it is AMAZING. Highly recommend and will be recommending to my friends and family. A must do

Good activity-based outing. Kayaking part of the trip was a reasonable amount of time and enjoyable. Snorkeling locations were good. While visited by motorized boats, they were less busy than the Cabo marina area.

Casey was great: very informative and accommodating and super-friendly. We would definitely use him again! Cabo Pulmos was very remote, on a bone-jarring road, but we’ll worth the trip. Fabulous snorkeling!

It was an amazing trip and our guide Casey was the best! We loved the kayaking and snorkeling. The fish tacos were best too! What a great time! Sandra and Jim Vioski

Great guides…the kayaking was not difficult…and great access to animals and landmarks.
