Departure Point

Blvd. Paseo de la Marina 106, Centro, Marina, 23450 Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S., Mexico

Dock #1 by the dolphin center, near the circle of surfboards on the marina. It's easy to find. Copy & Paste this exact drop pin location on Google maps: This dock is an advantage to Cruise Line passengers because it´s literally a 1 minute walk from where the tenders drop off all the cruise line passengers, and also because you won´t pay any dock fees on this dock.

  • We try our very best to always be on time, but sometimes we experience a small delay, please be patient because we always come through. Your Satisfaction Guaranteed!
  • Please Note: This boat is not all glass bottom so do not expect the whole bottom of the boat to be glass which you won't find a boat all glass bottom anywhere in Cabo because it is against Government Boat Regulations therefore all glass bottom boats in Cabo are built the same way with a rectangle glass box which is considered the glass bottom boat in Mexico but some boats are small and other boats are big. If the whole bottom of the boat was glass bottom it would be dangerous because it can break and that would sink the boat. There's a reason why the bottom of the boats are not all glass for SAFETY reasons.. You can still see the fish through the glass and also on both sides of the boat. Just look at all of our pictures. If you want an all clear boat please book with us the all clear transparent boat we have online which costs more money and is the same tour as this except all clear transparent boat cannot drop off or pick up at the beach, but we can with this glass bottom boat tour.
  • This boat has a rectangle window glass bottom but not the whole bottom of the boat is glass. If you want an all clear transparent boat (not glass bottom) book the all clear boat with us.

Disappointed glass experience
, Oct 2021
Glass bottom boat was a tiny window the size of a shoebox. Basically just paid for a Water taxi. Disappointed.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for your review, but you did not pay for a water taxi, and it is bigger than a shoe box so please don't exaggerate. You paid for a 45 minute arch tour, not a 5 minute taxi ride. Completely different that it cannot be compared. This is a glass bottom boat in Mexico. Don't expect for the whole bottom of the boat to be glass, it clearly says it on the listing before you booked. How come you didn't say anything about the awesome tour everyone always has a great time? How come you never mentioned the excellent service from the Captain that everyone loves? We asked you how was your tour on this day and you said you loved it and had no complaints. Your review is disappointing. Next time don't be so negative. Have a great day!
Great way to spend a few hours
, Aug 2021
We loved seeing the rock formations, and getting a chance to spend an hour at Lover’s beach and swim in the Sea of Cortez. Our captain and his nephew were very friendly and made the trip very enjoyable.
Don't bother

Don't recommend glass bottom is the size of a shoe box, plus we over paid online and at the dock people were only charged 20

Enjoy the trip
, Aug 2021
The pilot and guide person was excellent but the glass bottom was not large enough to see much. Its small and with 10 people most couldn’t get close to it but looking over side you can see a lot of fish.

Great boat ride to the arch
, Aug 2021
It’s more of a boat trip to the arch than a glass bottom boat viewing of fish. Saw some fish but that wasn’t the highlight. Fun to be on the water and to see the arch from all sides.

Not worth the 35 usd!!
, Aug 2021
We booked online this tour because we wanted to see the arco on our way to Todos Santos. So literally we stopped at Cabo San Lucas just for this. First, the boat's glass bottom is a joke, it is super small and we didn't get to see any wildlife through it. We did see some fish and sea lions but not through it. Second, my husband and I paid 35 Usd per person for this tour. We were punctual to take the tour and so we departed with our guide Veymar, who btw was super kind and helpful all the time. In the beginning it was only us with Veymar since apparently noone else had showed up/booked. However, when we were already on our way to the Arch Veymar told us that we had to go back to the pier to pick up some clients that had arrived slightly late. Since we weren't that far away from the pier yet, we agreed to this. Then when we picked the other clients, they were charged right before our eyes only 200 pesos each (approx 10 usd) for the tour. We didn't complain at the end of the tour because we weren't in the mood, nor did we have the time for it given our tight schedule. So, I'd suggest don't book a tour of this kind online and don't book it with this company. Just show up to the pier, there are plenty of tour operators there and I guess you could handle the price with them directly. Also, you can see the boots live and decide which one you want to take, because it seems that there are plenty with a tiny glass bottom as the one we had.

Great experience! Our captain gave us great information on each area we came upon. I definitely recommend. You will not regret this tour. Breathtaking 😍
Excellent customer service and tour guide
, Jul 2021
After being scammed on a boat tour, this company went ABOVE AND BEYOND to ensure that we had a great boat tour with them. The owner was very responsive and called to make sure everything was ok. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and told us about the history and great spots out on the water. We would definitely use them again. THANK YOU for an awesome experience.
