  • We try our very best to always be on time, but sometimes we experience a small delay, please be patient because we always come through. Your Satisfaction Guaranteed!
  • Please Note: This boat is not all glass bottom so do not expect the whole bottom of the boat to be glass which you won't find a boat all glass bottom anywhere in Cabo because it is against Government Boat Regulations therefore all glass bottom boats in Cabo are built the same way with a rectangle glass window which is considered the glass bottom boat in Mexico but some boats are small and other boats are big. If the whole bottom of the boat was glass bottom it would be dangerous because it can break and that would sink the boat. There's a reason why the bottom of the boats are not all glass for SAFETY reasons.. You can still see the fish through the glass and also on both sides of the boat. Just look at all of our pictures. If you want an all clear boat please book with us the all clear transparent boat we have online which costs more money and is the same tour as this except all clear transparent boat cannot drop off or pick up at the beach, but we can with this glass bottom boat tour.
  • This boat has a rectangle window glass bottom but not the whole bottom of the boat is glass. If you want an all clear transparent boat (not glass bottom) book the all clear boat with us.
  • Transportation Hotel pick up and drop off is NOT included.
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 14 travelers

Our guide Vaymar? was awesome. Knowledgeable, entertaining and just a fun and friendly guy! The views were amazing and we were able to spend as much or as little time at the beach as we wanted. Top notch

Though we enjoyed the tour we didn't think the cost of $35/person was worth it because the boat was old and somewhat unsafe because I fell getting into the boat.
Great boat ride - highly recommend!
Sharon_K, Aug 2023
The captain was great and the boat ride was perfect! Everything was beautiful, we got to see gorgeous tropical fish, a sea lion swimming in the ocean, sea lions basking in the sun, and got dropped off at a beautiful swimmable beach. It was magical!
Awesome experience!

Captain Moy was a great host, and we had an amazing time on our tour. We felt very safe the whole time, and would recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing the arch or spending time at the surrounding beaches.
Nice trip for under an hour!
Duane_O, Aug 2023
Friendly boat captain that gave a lot of information about the history and the origin of names for the topography. Great price for the excursion, short but sweet! Would definitely recommend!
I had a Best in Class Experience!
Holly_M, Aug 2023
The most memorable part of my experience is seeing the beauty of the Arch. Also, the viewing the beautiful fish and where the Sea of Cortez meets The Pacific Ocean.
Quick little tour for a great price.
Marty_S, Aug 2023
The dock was easy to find, the captain explained the history of the arch and how they were created from volcano eruptions many years ago. It was faster than expected how ever the water was getting choppy so I understand.
RAFAEL_R, Aug 2023
Moy great person and very knowledgeable about the tour. Will visit again and we want Moy to take us.
My first time visiting the arches!

Our tour guide Moy was informative and friendly. The beauty of the arches was breathtaking. Our boat could have been a little nicer but ok.

Araleigh_N, Jun 2023
This tour was so fun and so worth it. We took grandparents and kids and everyone had a great time. Moy was punctual and friendly and showed us so much of the sea area in Cabo. We got dropped off at one of the beaches and picked up right on time. We would definitely recommend this tour!
Amazing tour
Greg_C, Jun 2023
What an amazing tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and filled with fun details of the entire area we traveled with him. Oh, and let's not forget the views. I could add numerous pictures and still not properly capture its beauty.
Great trip!
