The sunset dinner cruise is definitely a fun way to spend an evening in Cabo! The cruise offers a fajita dinner (food is so-so), open bar with beer, blended drinks and top shelf drinks available for an additional amount. The views of the coastline are spectacular, and we had a very close-up view of a whale while we cruised. It's definitely a party atmosphere, with dancing and an MC to keep the party rolling. There are booths on the lower deck for people who don't want to dance or have very young children. I probably wouldn't take kids under 10 on this cruise, as the dance participation activities get pretty risqué by the end of the evening. Lots of fun!

We booked the snorkeling cruise for a birthday celebration. We literally just returned to our hotel from the 11:20am tour. What we thought was going to be fun and relaxing, turned into stressful and disappointing. The first half of our trip was great. We enjoyed the boat ride and snorkeling. Once we returned to the boat, we were told we needed to pay for new flippers for a small crack that appeared. This was my girlfriend's first snorkeling experience, therefore we spent the majority of the allotted 45 minutes of snorkeling fixing her mask and teaching her how to operate the breathing mechanism. I am 100% positive we did not cause any crack in a flipper, as we barely could keep up with the guide. Once in the boat, the entire second half of our tour was filled with arguing and rudeness from the managers, but particularly the equipment man Marcos. He stood over us for the whole ride home asking for money to replace the one flipper. While others partied, we held back tears. In the end, we had to exchange our photo taken by the Cabo Escape crew for one flipper - $250 pesos. What a nightmare. I would not recommended this company to anyone - unless something changed in management. Thank you to the wait staff, you guys were great. I am sorry your tip and more went to the cost of one flipper. In my opinion, go with another company that treats tourists with respect.

Great fun is what you will have on one of the nicest ships offering a sunset cruise! The staff know what and how to get the crowd up and dancing. Drinks were delish, even frozen piña coladas and multiple beer choices. Bathrooms super clean. 2 floors of fun. Best party at the marina. You can watch all the boats coming and going and know this is the one to be on!

Part of our group of 10 had taken this dinner cruise in previous years, so we knew we wanted this sunset tour of the Arch. As we shopped along the Marina, we found a vendor that gave a steep discount off the advertised price of $45/person (in Cabo newspaper) or $50/person per our timeshare. With our large group and a bit of talking, willing to pay for tickets on the spot for the following nite, we got $39/person with food and drinks included. Top shelf drinks were available for purchase, and plenty of guests were buying. I believe a few in our group bought some tequila shots.

Get in line early to get a spot on top deck for a party atmosphere, dancing after sunset. Sit below deck for nice booths. Great pics no matter where you are. Great crew, wonderful fast service, good chips/salsa, fajita dinner with salad, rice, beans, good guacamole. We had mixed drinks and plenty of them. DJ and Hype Man got the crowd up top going. People below said they saw Rays jumping at sunset. Good entertainment for a 2 hour trip. Keep a few dollars handy for to-go drinks at the end (only beer for us, but in the past you could get a mixed drink). Tip the crew a few bucks when they pass the hat, as they provide good service. We has a few families with small children on board. I think I would have taken the babies downstairs due to speakers, but that's me. Beautiful sights, great picture opportunities. Our group ranged from 25 year old to 60 year old, we all had fun.

We went in February. We did not see whales on this boat, but saw plenty of whale activity the rest of the trip from our time share balcony. Mothers training babies to surface, blow, tail slap, and swim.

There was some question as to dress code for men (wear a tshirt or polo, not a tank top), but the women were dressed in various outfits and were not questioned. I see pictures with swimsuit tops, so it makes me wonder about the dress code question. The tickets did not specify. The group in question was allowed on without further incident. If in doubt throw on some sleeves and avoid the issue. The boat makes it clear they are there for fun and enjoyment, and you should be as well, so take the motto in stride "No Bad Days"!

We had a blast. The boat was large enough to provide a very smooth ride which was great for our group since we had a couple of us that can get queasy pretty easy with a rough ride. The food was great, plentiful, easy to get (not even a five minute line!), and whatever you were drinking came quick and tasty.

We had two teens, my 24 year old son and my wife and I on the trip. It was a good mix of all ends of the spectrum which kept the whole group happy. On the way over it is light drinks and food for about an hour ride. The snorkeling was amazing as two of the crew fed the fish from a kayak which brought hundreds of tropical fish to around us. The water was so clear you could see for a long way. They offered suits for rent if you thought you would be cold but it was not needed.

On the way back the music gets a little louder and the top deck turns into a party cruise. If you dont want to be part of that the main cabin is a great place to ride back and still enjoy the ride.

We will be doing this again when we come back
