Arch of Cabo San Lucas (El Arco)

Land's End, Cabo San Lucas, 23410

The basics

Because El Arco is a natural formation that’s accessible only by water, the only way to get close to it is by boat. A number of tours leaving from the Cabo San Lucas marina offer different ways to see the arch. Adventurous travelers can opt for a kayaking and snorkeling tour—or parasail over it! Those looking to relax with friends can sail by it on a catamaran or sailboat, or take an evening cruise that includes dinner and drinks.

A++ Whale Watching Experience

Luxury Catamaran Whale Watching Cabo San Lucas
Everything was A+. From the pickup at our hotel to dropoff, everything was A+. The location we met to get checked in and get more information on what to expect was modern, clean and the perfect meeting location. The boat itself was immaculate, the service was outstanding, and we got to see those whales. :) Would definitely use this operator for future water experiences.

Great tour, but can't see through the glass bottom boat

Shared ride to the arch of Cabo San Lucas
This boat ride was informative and fun with great views of what we paid to see. I'd give it five stars, except that the glass bottom boat had glass that was not clean, so you could barely see through it to the fish below. The tour guide and captain were both great the whole time, and the shared experience with other families was nice.

Luxury Catamaran Whale Watching Cabo San Lucas
The catamaran was clean and beautiful - not overbooked. We were well taken care of - service was excellent. Given beautifully made appetizers and beverages. Everything ran on time without any concerns. I only gave it 4 stars because I think it is pricey compared to other whale watches I've been on and you don't go very far in comparison. However, it's vacation and the vessel was immaculate with a great crew.

The Arch Tour with Amazing Captain in Cabo San Lucas
The tour was so lovely. The coordinator Moy I was in contact with was very accommodating and polite. The ride itself was upbeat, the captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would definitely go again. The boat was clean and the captain even offered to take our pictures for us. It was myself and my 2 friends and another group of people a total of about 10 of us including the captain. If you're in Cabo check them out!

Boat was clean, staff was great, only reason I didn't give it a 5 is captain was more focused on fishing than the cusotmers. Heck, he could have let us reel one in lol

Private Fishing Tour in Cabo San Lucas with Food and Drink
The boat and crew were fantastic. We were waiting to be brought down and were the last group finally taken, so was getting worried something had happened! But, made it on, caught several Mahi Mahi and our group of 4 had an amazing trip. Saw the arch, whales, sea lions and caught fish which we had cleaned and cooked up upon return at La Chatita!

Shared ride to the arch of Cabo San Lucas
AMAZING, Amazing, AMAZING! Our tour guide Nieves was outstanding. We were able to capture beautiful pictures. Ask a million question. Listen to music our choice and learn about the local area. Would highlight recommend. The price is cheaper than the rest of the tour groups. The boat is clean and with a cover(to keep out the sun). Highly recommend.
