Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your driver at your Los Cabos hotel or cruise ship pier and begin your oceanic odyssey to Medano Beach. The beach is an ideal vantage point to gaze at the iconic El Arco (The Arch), a rugged collection of jagged rocks that protrude dramatically from the calm ocean. 

Sink your toes into the silken sands of the beach and listen to an informative safety talk from your experienced guide. Once you’ve grasped basic paddling techniques, don your life jacket and snorkeling gear and set sail in your glass-bottomed kayak. 

Follow your guide as you maneuver Land’s End, the blissful bay where many of Los Cabos’ legendary landmarks reside. Admire pelicans and diverse sea birds as they soar past, not forgetting to gaze through the transparent boat bottom at shimmering schools of exotic fish. Keep your eye out for the manta rays and sea turtles that also inhabit the waters and paddle past the colony of sea lions lying languidly upon the sun-drenched rocks. 

Gain insight into local ecology and geology as you cruise past El Arco to the secluded Playa del Amor, a romantic and remote beach accessible only by water. Enjoy dramatic vistas of sea-sculpted boulders as you sail past the landmark. 

Arrive at Pelican’s Rock and dock your kayak in order to immerse yourself in the beautiful waters of the bay. Slip on your snorkeling gear and set off in search of lobsters, angelfish, puffers, and schools of stingrays.  

Return to your kayak and paddle around the picturesque Playa del Amor and enjoy a light snack. Absorb the tranquil atmosphere before sliding back into your kayak for the return journey to Medano Beach to board your minivan and venture back to your hotel or cruise ship port in comfort.

Highlight of the Trip

We had such an awesome time. It was a small group of just my mom and myself. We got a thorough tour of all the highlights and then some! Our guide, Maury, was incredibly kind and thoughtful. He took my mom around snorkeling and made her feel especially comfortable. This was the highlight of the trip. Strongly recommend- especially because of the guide :)

Pepe and Ivan were awesome! Such a fun trip. It was just four of us too, which made it even more exclusive. It was busier on the water because of the Mexican holiday, but they made it very enjoyable. If you’re looking for snorkeling, this isn’t the place. More like a watering hole. But the kayaking was great and we loved our guides!

Great kayaking and snorkeling trip!

Pepe was a fantastic guide! Very knowledgeable and high energy! The kayaking out to the arch was wonderful, with plenty of time given for breaks. It does get busy there with various boats doing arch tours but we felt empowered being the only group kayaking out there :) Snorkeling was also very nice with so many different kinds of fish so close to the shore. Would highly recommend this wonderful experience. Ask for Pepe to be your guide!!

We appreciate your words. Pepe is undoubtedly a super careful and kind guide. We are so happy you enjoyed the tour with him. The beautiful view from the kayak in the rocky area of the Arch, without a doubt, is great !!. We hope you visit us soon !!!

We loved our kayak trip over to the arch and the beaches with Maury. He was an amazing trip guide and so much fun to be with. I’m 56 and my daughter is 32. We had no issues and felt very capable and safe during our journey. Maury picked us up, and dropped us off. At our hotel Rui Palace. It was so much fun!
