I have done several different sunset tours in Cabo over the years. This was a favorite! The size of the boat made for a fun/friendly vibe. I'm guessing about 20 guest aboard. Service was excellent with an attentive waiter bringing drinks the whole time. Option to sit beside or on the webbing on the front if the boat, with the waves splashing below you. Music was great. Took requests. Dancing was so much fun, and as we passed other boats it was clear we were having much more fun than them!

This trip was amazing! The staff was great, it’s an amazing boat for plenty of people. We had a small group and it was so much fun. The space is clean and the staff is very helpful. The food was great, open bar with good drinks. Beautiful views! Overall, a great experience and I would recommend!!

Casey is beyond capable of making every Cabo trip an amazing adventure. The arch is absolutely beautiful with the company to match. He and his wife run this travel company and it is AMAZING. Highly recommend and will be recommending to my friends and family. A must do

Great tour. Very informative and perfect little “must do” excursion. Our guide David was great.
