We took the short kayak and snorkel tour around Pelican Rock and the arch. Our guides were Jesus and Claudio. They took eight of us out into the bay in a small inflatable craft that was just the right size, towing the kayaks. After a short trip we all got into our glass bottomed kayaks and paddled out to the arch and then back to Pelican Rock where we all returned to the boat.The kayak portion lasted about 45 minutes and was fairly challenging for a couple of older folks who hadn't done too much in a kayak. We then were outfitted with snorkel gear and were able to swim around and observe the many fish in the area. Claudio and Jesus were excellent guides and very safety conscious, always keeping everyone on the tour between them while in the water. They knew where everyone was and swam by to check on us. Claudio provided an excellent underwater tour and pointed out all of the wildlife. I really have to commend both Claudio and Jesus for being so friendly and professional. Without question they knew what they were doing and enjoyed their work a great deal. Anyone who takes this tour should be in fairly decent physical condition. Not an athlete by any means but just prepared to exert yourself. It takes some decent strength and balance just to be able to negotiate the tiny ladder and get back into the boat after the snorkel portion. As good as our guides were it would be a lot of fun to be able do some of the diving that they did. I was not in great shape when I did this tour but it was still fun. After the tour a fine lunch was provided. Very reasonably priced and well worth it.

We signed up for para sailing with Cabo Expeditions and it was a waste of our money. We found them to be very over priced, have many hidden fees, and concerned only for money. After they received our money they became very short and rude. They did not want to give change back. They also refuse to listen to concerns or help to accommodate ANY request. Save your money and go somewhere else!

Dear Brian J,

Thank you for your feedback.

We are very surprised about your comments because the prices of all our tours are shown on our website and we do not charge our customers any additional hidden fees. Also, we always give change back. We might not have enough change at the time, but we always ensure that our customers get their change before they leave our office.

We can't seem to find a booking under your name upon checking our system. We were wondering if you booked directly with us or through a third party?

We would appreciate it if you could contact us directly through our website so we can look into the matter and follow up with you personally.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
Oscar Ortiz

I can't say enough how great this company is in Cabo! On time, courteous, great transfer vehicles, great food included...we had an amazing time seeing the first whale sharks in La Paz in 2013 season. Abraham and Alberto were awesome guides! Boat captain was great too! We also stopped at Hotel California on our way back to Cabo which was a fun quick stop. Our driver and Abraham were accommodating to whatever you needed. We had an amazing day!

Especially in September, when the water is still warm, the Espiritu Santo expedition is a unique experience. To warn you, it's an early pickup and a long drive to La Paz (with a stop for breakfast at a local cafe), then a long-ish boat ride to the sister islands of Espiritu Santo and La Partida. Then the fun begins. We learned a lot about the islands as our captain took the boat next to rock formations, inside caves, etc. The best part of the trip was the stop at Los Islotes to snorkel with sea lions - so cool! A lunch of sandwiches and homemade ceviche followed on a stretch of lovely beach, followed by more typical snorkeling in another bay. We were lucky enough to be accosted by a small pod of dolphins before heading back to the mainland. What a great day!

We spent the afternoon with with Claudio and Chewey (Jesus) kayaking and snorkeling out by Del Arco - at land's end and had an absolutely amazing time. They went over the top with their service. We learned about Cabo history, the different landmarks at Land's End. We got to spend some time swimming at Lovers Beach. Claudio snorkeled with us pointing out and telling us about the different fish, including an EEL.
Great time. Amazing, professional, kind staff. I highly recommend Cabo Expeditions for any of your Cabo adventures!
