This was an amazing trip and I highly recommend it. We are a family of four with a 12 years old boy and a 6 years old girl. The kayak trip was perfectly guided by Maury and Paco who truly deserved a 5 stars review. They were very accommodating and adapted well to the different skill levels of the group. We will definitely come back to have more adventures in Los Cabos with Hight Tide!

Visiting the arch on our Kayak and snorkeling Tour is great you would be able to be close to the arch, sea lions and the marine life of the place is beautiful. We hope to see you on your next adventure with us Warm regards HT Team

Ivan, Hugo, and Alexis were fabulous guides! The waves were stronger than normal during our trip but they had an awesome back up plan so we all felt comfortable. They did a great job making sure everyone was ok getting in and out and soothed any fears or anxieties. It was absolutely gorgeous and unlike anything I've done before. I would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Cabo San Lucas

What a great experience. Jose with his buddy was our tour guides. They explained about the rock formation and made sure we were all okay. Snorkeling was great and they took the time to show us lots of fish. Highly recommend this tour the only thing you might want to consider is not doing this on a Sunday afternoon. It’s a great day for lots of locals to be out and it was very busy. Our guides still made sure we got to see the beauty of the area. Thanks for a great afternoon.

Thank you for sharing your vacation with us. The beaches on weekends are usually more crowded since they are public beaches and locals usually visit them, the boys will always be in care and will make the walk fun and safe at all times. We hope to see you on your next vacation. Warm regards HT Team

The views were beautiful and kayaking was lots of fun. We appreciated the guides doing all the loading and unloading of equipment, the mouth pieces for the snokles were disinfected well and water and granola bars were included. Would have liked it if the guides shared more information about the area to the whole group and interacted with us more. Also, be aware that you won't see anything through the glass bottom as it is a small window and the water is not clear enough and valuables had to be left in the vehicle. You will definitely get wet on this outing so have a plan for your phone if you want it to take photos. I was able to tuck mine in the provided life jacket but I should have brought a waterproof pouch. Our group of 4 had a good time and were happy we participated but $80 USD per person for a 2 hour kayak/snorkel was a bit pricey.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we are happy you enjoyed the tour, as you mention the views are beautiful and we are happy you had lots of fun. There are no hidden costs on the tour and we offer what you received, we offer also complementary round trip transportation if needed, the tour does include the entrance of the bay as well (natural protected area), wet suits (if needed), and many other small details. If you add the cost of those things like taxi or uber, entrances, wetsuit rental, etc you will see the price is excellent, it would be a very price to pay those ads separately. We do recommend water prove cases or cameras for any water activity. We certainly hope to see you on your next visit to sunny Cabo Regards HT Team

Paco and Ivan were our guides and they were awesome! We were able to leave our valuables and phones safely in the van during our excursion. They were thorough and safely took care of our girls. Safety and regulations were their priority. They made sure we hydrated and were able to bring us all the way to the arch despite all the boat traffic. During our snorkeling portion Paco brought us around the snorkeling area and is a very good swimmer. When my daughter got sick they didn’t rush us and adjusted to help bring her back safely. I recommend this excursion for adventurous families. It was a little challenging at times but if you listened to Ivan and Paco you were safe. A++++++

We booked the kayaking and snorkeling tour for the a.m. in the hopes that the sea wouldn't be too rough for kayaking. However, there were several boats already out even early in the day and a good breeze, so it made kayaking a bit of a challenge. It's absolutely beautiful and I loved riding the waves in the kayak, but be warned it is not a super relaxing excursion. Both myself and my friend regularly lift weights, swim and run, and we were a bit sore the next day, lol! If you want to get a great workout in, see some awesome scenery and also snorkel in a nice, enclosed area, then I recommend it.

Alo Thanks for taking the time to write this review, we are happy you enjoyed the tour and our guides. The day you did the tour was spring break week and we had lots of tourist in town, glad you did go in the morning because is way fewer people on the bay than in the afternoon, however, we had been having a windy week (not comun) and yes, with wind is more challenge. Our guides will always be ready to help if needed. Hope to see you on your next visit to sunny Cabo

Pepe and Ivan were our guides for the kayaking and snorkeling trip. They were very accommodating. The day we went was very rainy and they gave us the choice to do the activity, find something to do in the city, or get our money back. We ended up still kayaking and it was well worth it. Beautiful views and a breathtaking view of the arch. Once Pepe confirmed that it was safe for us to snorkel, we were able to get into the water and he pointed out all the unique fish and we even saw manta rays. A great workout and once in a lifetime experience.

Great Experience and the perfect amount of time with two solid hours of activity. Our guides were attentive and adjusted our kayak route to better navigate the waves and wind. Our guides worked hard and pointed us in the right direction for the best snorkeling and made sure everyone had a great time.This is a perfect activity for those looking for an active experince!

Maury provided us an incredible experience in Cabo San Lucas kayaking to the Arch and snorkeling at Pelican rock. We enjoyed the personal attention as he typically books smaller groups. We were happy to be picked up at our hotel lobby and dropped off right on time. On the way to the adventure he told us all the ins an outs of the area. He is proud to be from the Baja Penisula. He was right on with his instructions to keep us safe while paddling and also gave us great tips to make the most of our snorkeling experience. He has a warm, energetic and fun loving personality. Thanks for making a lasting memory for my husband and I Maury!

Our Kayak excursion was an excellent way to see the famous arch in Cabo San Lucas & other points of interest. Our tour guide, Ivan, was wonderful, informative & constantly concerned about our safety as he led us through the harbor packed with boats. We also had an opportunity to snorkel at Pelican Bay which is very safe as a certain area is roped off just for snorkelers.

Thanks for your recommendation!! Ivan is an excellent guide that will always take care of everything you need during our tours. The kayak tour is a unique experience where you can be up close with the rocky area of the arch and the snorkeling in pelicano stone where you can enjoy the great variety of colorful fish in that area. We are happy that you enjoyed the experience to the fullest. Regards HT Team
