A Cabo San Lucas Snorkeling Tour with Glass-Bottom Kayaks!

Come with us on a Cabo San Lucas kayaking and snorkeling tour at The Arch. In this famous Baja Peninsula landmark, the Pacific Ocean joins the celestial emerald waters of the Sea of Cortez. The Arch is an ideal habitat for marine birds and multicolored fish and an incredible place to observe a huge colony of majestic sea lions.

This is a Cabo San Lucas snorkeling tour with a difference! Not only do you get to enjoy snorkeling and seeing the incredible marine life up close, but you’ll also get to enjoy seeing them throughout your water adventure. Our glass-bottom kayaks allow you to see stunning sea life as you paddle through one of the world’s most beautiful bodies of water.

  • From $95 per participant

Departure time

Choose between 9am and 2pm*

*We recommend the 9 am tour as historically there’s more wind in the afternoons. Due to this, there are times when we can’t reach the arch, only Pelican Rock. Also, because the arch is the most well-known landmark in Cabos, there’s a high number of visitors, and it’s even more crowded in the afternoons.

Frequently Asked Questions

We do not use boats, all our water activities start from the beach.

We recommend the 9 am schedule as in the mornings there is less wind and fewer waves, so the conditions are usually more favorable.

Unfortunately we cannot control the wind. In the event that strong winds prevent us from getting to the Arch we will spend more time snorkeling to make sure the adventure continues. We will not issue partial refunds.

Your safety is our priority. When the conditions are not favorable, due to wind, high waves, or a tropical storm, we offer to change the day of your reservation or make a refund.

Our activities include transportation, within the center and hotel zone of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.

The hotels that do not include transportation because they are outside the city center are Hard Rock, Nobu, Diamante, Rancho Cabo San Lucas, Four Seasons, El Encanto de la Laguna. We can pick you up at our meeting point at the Oxxo in Plaza Gali which is located in front of the Sandos Finisterra hotel in Cabo San Lucas.
