We make it a point to go on the Rissalena everytime we are in Cabo. It is the best sunset cruise in town. Great food, great crew, and always a fun group on board. 20 or less people. Makes for a great evening.

If you want to snorkel or do a dinner cruise, go on the Rissalena. We have been going on this boat for 10 years. It is a family operation. Eduardo (dad) is the captain (and builder) of the boat. It is meticulously maintained. The food is amazing - homemade by Laura (Eduardo's daughter). The 1st Mate (Aramis) pilots the boat... More

We rented this boat private for our family of 16's vacation. This was by far my favorite Cabo memory. We saw so many whales!! The crew was AMAZING. Friendly and passionate about the whales and the ocean, and OMG the food ( the homemade food). The boat was beautiful. 4 hours was not nearly enough i could have spent the... More

We met some people at the hotel that were going on this cruise so we joined them. The boat was clean and spacious. They don't cram people on like some other cruises. Nice music, great drinks that kept coming and the food was excellent. Ribs, chicken and a salad to die for. They don't soak you by taking pictures to... More

So glad this was recommended to us. Very clean boat, the BEST food,(home made) great crew, good drinks. Was not packed like all the other cruises we saw. Will do again! We recommended this the rest of our trip to everyone. Cruise, food, and drinks all included in one low price.

The Rissalena Dinner Cruise was recommended to us by a guest at the pool. We booked for the next evening, and was not disappointed. The other guests on the dinner cruise we met were very nice and the crew, Eduardo, Laura, Jenny, Bartender Jesus, and Aramis, the navigator were fantastic and friendly. The views were postcard perfect, and the pictures... More

We cruised on the beautiful Rissalena again this year (as we have for the past 10 years). We are never disappointed. Beautiful. clean boat, wonderful crew that is like family, plentiful food & drinks provided, and a sail that is geared around "safety first". Thank you Laura, Aramis, Roberto & the rest of the crew. See you next year!

This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. The day was glorious, the crew was warm and inviting, the food was home made and included in the price of the tour and excellent and we saw plenty of dolphin and whales. I loved the ship and the size. Wasn't overcrowded as they only take 24 passengers so... More

I guess I'm biased! I found this wonderful boat on Trip Advisor 10 yrs ago! I book it yearly and insist every friend I have who visits Cabo sign up for it! A couple of years, I've gone on it as many as 4 times (with new sets if company). My trips to Cabo would not be complete without going... More

A week before we left for our trip to Cabos San Lucas, my dentist recommended we take the "Sunset Cruise" aboard the Rissalena. Edwardo, Laura, Jenny and the rest of his crew were great, the food was terrific and the atmosphere made the evening complete. The music was timely but not intrusive and the sunset was simply awesome. My wife... More
