Arch of Cabo San Lucas (El Arco)

Land's End, Cabo San Lucas, 23410

The Basics

Because El Arco is a natural formation that’s accessible only by water, the only way to get close to it is by boat. Numerous tours leaving from the Cabo San Lucas marina offer various ways to see the arch. Adventurous travelers can opt for a kayaking and snorkeling tour—or parasail over it! Those looking to relax with friends can sail by it on a catamaran or sailboat, or take an evening cruise that includes dinner and drinks.

Private Boat Tour from Cabo San Lucas with Snorkeling Gear 6 pax
The boat is pretty spacious and feels like floating on a small spa. We rented out the boat for ourselves as we felt most comfortable with that during a pandemic. And it was incredible. Views were amazing. Crew was on top of everything from safety to comfort. They even let us DJ our own music. A must do for Cabo!
Perfect tour

Snorkeling or Swimming with Sharks in Cabo San Lucas
My husband and I learned a lot about the sharks and felt safe going in the water. We were within five feet of a mako shark. Pepe was a great guide and you can tell he loves what he does. He took photos during the excursion and shared them with the group which was a GREAT bonus! Made friends on the way back with the pelicans and sea lions.
Great activity

The Arch Tour with Amazing Captain in Cabo San Lucas
Arch tour was great. Just being on the water and capturing the scenery was amazing, however I wish the entire bottom of the boat was glass but it was just a tiny window. All and all, you can’t beat the price for such a beautiful experience.
Perfect way to end our stay!
