"We thought seeing El Arco by water would be the best way and why hop on a motor boat when you can kayak out there in a small group. Pepe and the "Tarzan" of Cabo picked us up at our hotel and kept us entertained as we cruised to a couple other hotels on the way to the beach to launch. They did all the work to get us ready and guided us out to the arch. And Pepe got us set up for pictures - ours was great. Then we paddled to the beach, took a short walk to Lovers and Divorce Beach to see the amazing surf. They really made sure we were safe along the walk. Then we had a chance to do a loop out to Pelican Rock for a bit of snorkeling. No fins necessary even though we brought them. There was some fun fish watching. Then they packed everything back up while we rinsed off and drove us back...it was a great half-day tour. I was also impressed by the private locked up parking at the beach - nice bonus."

"Alex and Maury made the excursion a must to experience. It was very enjoyable and well worth the cost and time. A great mix of kayaking out to the Los Cabos Arch, a relaxing visit to both Lovers and Divorce Beach, then an amazing snorkeling view in pelican’s rock. I was not able to snorkel due to they did not fit over my prescription glasses; therefore, I recommend bringing your own in this situation. Meanwhile, they feed the fish, so they would come to the surface where I could view them and not miss out. Thank you!"

"We kayaked on a breezy day which made the paddling slightly more difficult than most beginners would like. Our guide Sergio was helpful and knowledgable with his instructions and assistance, making the trip safe and fun for all involved. I highly recommend this company for adventures in Cabo"

"Me and my friend went kayaking today by High Tide Sea Expeditions. We got a lovely ride from our hotel to the destination we launched at. The tour was a lovely experience, and it was a long beautiful one! We had gotten to see sea lions up close, and all other different types of sea life. We went cliff jumping as well. Sergio Lopez and Luis Armando were very professional, and great guides, they even took pictures of us the whole trip and sent them to our emails afterwards. They were Friendly, safe, and fun! Explained so many things to us, and just gave us a welcoming, home type, feel to the entire San Lucas area. Defiantly the right way to kick of your vacation in Cabo! Thank You Sergio and Luis!"

"Great morning on the water in Cabo! We were 6 people staying in San Jose del Cabo and High Tide provided transportation each way. We first kayaked over to the arch, then Lover's beach, and finally snorkeling near Pelican Rock. There were lots of beautiful fish to see. You don't really need to have any kayak experience as they give a brief lesson beforehand. You should feel comfortable kayaking for about an hour. But you don't need to be fast as they will always have someone stay near you. You also will need to get in and out of the kayak from the water if you want to snorkel, but they will help you if necessary. Wonderful, friendly people! I would highly recommend!"

"We started by getting all of our equipment sized and put on, the guides were very helpful. Then we had a quick training before hoping in the warm water. The guides did a great job of making sure everyone was safe and well trained so they could keep close to the pack. Our guide used our phones to get some great pictures in front of the Arch. We spent a few minutes checking out the sea lions on the rock, they were pretty active. Then we started back to the snorkeling spot, it was our first time kayaking and snorkeling. There were so many beautiful fish, it was like swimming in a huge aquarium! There was even a sea lion with us when we started. So much fun!"

- January -


"My 3 teens and I really enjoyed kayaking out to the arch. You can get much closer in kayaks than you can in the larger boats. The sea lions are cool but the scenery is really wonderful. On the way back we tied off the kayaks and hopped out with snorkeling equipment. What a surprise to swim away from the kayak, look down and see thousands of beautiful tropical fish right under our feet! The guides were great, so friendly and helpful and took care of everything. One suggestion: bring a towel with you or you might have a damp trip back to your hotel."

"Alex and Juan are great guides. They love what they do and really show us all the fun. I am not a good swimmer but felt safe the entire trip."
