Just to give you an idea of how much I love going on the Rissalena... My first time on the beautiful boat was in 2001! Every time I visit Cabo (usually once per year) I make a point to book the Rissalena. Whether you do the snorkeling, whale watching or Sunset Cruise, you will NOT be disappointed. The crew literally... More

Brought a party of 8 out on this wonderful sunset cruise on a beautiful night in Cabo. The 4 person staff led by Laura and her husband were fantastic from the moment we boarded. Though they can take as many as 25 on this beautifully kept catamaran, a large party of 10 had cancelled so we only had 13 on... More

Booked the Rissalena with some friends and family as well as some smaller children, ages 9 mo's - 6 years old. The snorkeling cruise ran from 10 am - 1 pm, and we had a great day for boating, minimum wind and almost no swell. The crew is very child friendly, the boat is perfect and has lots of shade... More

If you enjoy wonderful food, gorgeous scenery, lively music, warm and loving hosts, and a picture perfect sunset, this is for you. I hope to visit The Rissalena every time I'm in Cabo. It is sublime.

Can booked for a private or semi private sunset dinner cruise on a luxury catamaran. It's run by an amazing woman (Laura), her daughter (Ashley), 2 guys that make the best margaritas ever and the captain (=5 crew). Its limited to around 20-30 guests so there is plenty of room to sit or move around if you want. They took... More

Our office group of 14 took a dinner cruise with the Rissalena and had a great time. Boat is perfect, big enough for our group, small enough to get close to the shore. Staff was outstanding, the margaritas were flowing (and never empty), the food was delicious. The timing of sunset was PERFECT! Next time in Cabo, this is a... More

If you're looking for a picture-perfect sunset cruise in Cabo at a very affordable price, fantastic view, delicious food and incredible staff to welcome you and create an amazing experience consider the Rissalena. We loved that this... More

We celebrated our grandson's 4th birthday on the Rissalena. Laura and the rest of the crew did so much to make this a special day for him. Very genuinely nice people. The boat was very clean and the food was good. And we got up close to 2 whales. Could not recommend these people any stronger.
