Esme and Arturo were amazing guides! I had a great time paddling out to the arches and they were so patient and helpful with others in the group who needed help. We went to a great spot for snorkeling and saw so many beautiful schools of fish. It's clear that they're really passionate about sharing this piece of Cabo with visitors. They were so thoughtful and even had fresh water for us to rinse off our sandy feet at the end. 10/10 would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Cabo!

Highly recommend! Guides were knowledgeable and accommodating! I arranged my pick up details via email and pick up was prompt and easy. The two bays chosen were beautiful and we had sufficient time to see everything we wanted while snorkeling! More fish than we had originally expected! Everything was well organized. We felt comfortable and safe the whole time and would recommend to any friend visiting Cabo

It took us a while to find any whales, but when we did.....!! A pair that we got to enjoy watching for over 30 min! It was just us and another boat for almost 20 min which made it a better experience- the whales came really close to the boat and one of them crossed under! Amazing!!

This glass boats tour was a lot of fun and was a different experience with the entire boat being see through. The tour guides were very energetic and appeared to be having a great time and provided a fun time for all aboard.

The guide and the captain were both friendly knowledgeable and provided a great experience for all involved!!!! I would definitely go again!
