Detailed Description

One of the classic excursions in Cabo San Lucas, if you are looking for an excursion in which you can see the best tourist attractions of Los Cabos but keep it inside the budget, this is a very good option

El Arco - Journey to the End of the World -

No doubt this is one of the best places to visit in the Baja California peninsula and in all of Mexico in general. The mystique of the place envelops you and fills you with emotions.

If you come to Los Cabos, you cannot miss going to the world-famous arch.

In Mexico we have a natural jewel that we must appreciate, this rocky complex makes the place simply spectacular.

In this short excursion we have the opportunity to see many places of interest such as

  • Neptune's finger or the stone of the Baja
  • The window to the Pacific
  • Scooby Doo shaped stone.
  • Sea lion colony
  • Pelicans Stone
  • The world famous Cabo San Lucas ARCH

If you are a person who is more comfortable on land or does not know how to swim, from the comfort of the glass bottom boat you can observe the multitude of multicolored fish without having to get wet.

Although, if you want to swim you can also do it, we have snorkeling equipment, do not miss the opportunity to be surrounded by an infinity of fish swimming in one of the best beaches in Mexico, coming from so far and not swimming in Los Cabos is something that cannot be missed.


Depending on your budget and the time you have, it is the itinerary that can be carried out.

Glass bottom boat excursions have different itineraries from the most basic which is 45 minutes that only visits the arch to take photos and see the fish.

We also have options where you can do a short snorkel in The pelicanos stone, where there are many multicolored fish.

There is also the option of staying on the beach of love to spend some time bathing in the waters of the Sea of Cortes and come back to pick you up later.

Simply beautiful places, the contrast of the colors of the sea and its rich marine fauna will leave you speechless

Pros of this excursion

  • It's an economic excursion
  • Small boats may be private.
  • Visit Lover's beach
  • Being small boats they can get closer to all places

Lover's beach - Divorce beach

Glass bottom boat tour in Cabo San Lucas Visit one of the most famous beaches in Cabo San Lucas, the part that faces the sea of Cortez is called Lovers beach because of its soft and calm waves, however, if you turn your eyes and walk in the opposite direction you will reach the part of the beach that faces the pacific ocean, there the waves are usually stronger, since it is open sea, that's why the name is Divorce beach.

In this excursion the captain of the boat usually leaves you on Lovers beach, then you both agree on the time you want him to come back for you.

We strongly recommend you to bring some snacks and beverages since there are no restaurants, or any kind of services on this beach, but this is also why it makes it so special.

"Small locally owned boat with driver/guide. Saw the beach the rock formation the pacific side of the beach and fed the fish. We did not get off and stay on the beach which might have been fun yo swim in pacific and bay within a few minutes of each other. Would definitely recommend this as a low cost no frills way of seeing the rock formations beach and fish."

"Had a great experience. Got to see all around the rocks take some great family pictures. We seen some really cool fish. We were able to be dropped off for an hour and a half at a swim beach. Had a great day! Learned some great history of Cabo from our boat captain."

"Our boat was 30 minutes late but the host bought us a couple of beers to keep us happy till the boat came even though we never complained He checked with us 4 or 5 times in that 30 minutes to keep us posted. Our guide on the boat was excellent and made sure we saw the sights as advertised and took time with us. He even spent time showing us this guy feeding a sea lion. Highly recommend and well worth the money"

"Went with Captain Jercel for the glass bottom boat Tour. He had lots of bread for the fish, both to see from the boat and for when we snorkeled. He gave a great history of the area and made sure we got lots of good photographs of Lands’ End and the arch. Thanks for an amazing morning."

"Very friendly and correct staff, did all the things the other companies did too, and even offered to drop us off on one of the beaches and pick us up a few hours later, without surcharge. No reason to choose a more expensive tour, this one is perfect !"

"The highlight of the boat ride is seeing the iconic El Archo cliffs. Short 10 minute ride to the tip of the peninsula, is very beautiful. Captain was very friendly , informative and accommodating. Entire trip was 50 minutes and very enjoyable."

"Safe, fun, and excellent service! Our guide was humorous, courteous, and anecdotal & knowledgeable about the areas we toured. We'd definitely use their services again. Highly recommended!"

"The tour is about 45 min to an hour. You’ll see pelican bay on your way to the arch where the captain will throw some tortillas in the water and you’ll see tons of colorful fish. You’ll go by Lovers Beach, the sea lions and the arch. Our captain and the photographer onboard were great and very informative. We got to see a few sea lions on the back of fishing boats, Poncho (the resident sea lion), sea turtles and tons of pelicans along the ride. The waves are so big I would not recommend to anyone that would get sea sick."
