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.

Kayaking was amazing! The guys who ran our tour - Hugo, Ivan, and Alexi- did a great job giving instructions and even though I had only kayaked twice before, it was easy and I felt completely comfortable around all the boats and some strong currents. The snorkeling was good -different than in places like Hawaii or the Caribbean but again the guys were really helpful. Overall it was a great tour and a lot of fun. They also took photos so you could leave any valuables in their van and they just airdrop them at no charge which was nice. Fun in the sun and free memories as well.

It is great to be in contact with nature and so close to the impressive Arch. We hope you visit us soon, to enjoy another adventure. Warm regards HT Team

Ivan and Davie were great. Very friendly and organized. The kayaking was a lot of fun. The snorkeling wasn't great, but you can't control what you are you going to see on a given day. The arc was beautiful.

Hello We appreciate your comments. We are sorry that you did not have a good snorkel, we have a storm nearby, and the sea is a bit rough. We hope to see you again for another experience in sunny Cabo. Best regards HT Team
