I have been on lots of snorkeling excursions but never one that was not on a boat! We didn’t read closely enough to realize that this is in a van with lots of walking on the rocky sand beach- the first location was a great place to snorkel and our guide was great but I never dreamed this excursion would be in a van. The second location was so busy and the water was not as clear so we didn’t stay long. Going on a boat is much better and boats were at these locations- why miss out on a great boat ride when selecting a snorkeling excursion. Choose another!

Dear Sharly, Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Is very clear in our description that the snorkel tour we offer is a snorkel tour off the beach. We are an ECO tour company. I definitely suggest reading close descriptions of the tours so you do not have false expectations and get disappointed for not receiving what you thought you sign for. We do not offer snorkel on a boat or catamaran. There are several reasons we do offer the snorkel off the beach but the most important one is you can not access the reef by boat, you can snorkel in the area but not on the reef if you go by boat. We always recommend the 9 am tour to avoid crowds and have better visibility, you went on a tour at 2 pm, since we have only 3 beaches in Los Cabos to do snorkel, is common that those spots get bussy. We are happy you believe the guide was great and the first snorkel location was great. Best Regards HT Team

Maury is a wonderful guide, who literally took us by the hand to show us a gorgeous array of fish, little (tame!) sharks, coral, and a great little locals beach. Word to the wise: bring your own towel, but the guys provide water and energy bars- perfect for a half day jaunt.

One of the best snorkling trips ever. Carlos "the Spartan" made the day perfect. He gave helpful tips to get in and out of the water, provided great equipment, swam to the bottom which encouraged the fish to swim close, and even found a sea urchin which I got to hold. Carlos was knowledgeable about the area, the fish, the bays. Thank you Carlos.

We were unable to do this tour because the water conditions were too rough and the visibility was poor quality, but the guides Luis and David tried so hard to find out if there was a better option and then to find a replacement activity for us that we really appreciated the customer service.

Hi Jenny Unfortunately the day you have scheduled your tour we had a tropical storm in the Pacific and because of it the water was rough, we can not control the weather but we try to offer the best options we can. Thanks for appreciating that, we certainly hope to see you on your next visit to Cabo Regards Sabina

This was one of the best experiences we had while in Cabo. Maury from High Tide Sea Expeditions was awesome! He speaks fluent English and has a ton of experience and knowledge about the area. He knew the best spots for snorkeling to see the most marine life and he takes pictures for you! If I could give 6 stars I would.

Marco picked us up at our hotel. Because the conditions of the water had changed, they offered us an alternative from the original destinations and gave us the option to kayak to Pelican Rock where the water was more clear. We took them up on it and had a great time! We took a double kayak out to the cove and saw some cool fish. They were knowledgeable and were great to educate us every step of the way. They took pictures of us on the beach before returning. I appreciated their efforts to make our experience the best possible and for being honest and upfront with us. I would use them again (High Tides) through Viator.

Beautiful beaches for snorkeling
Bryan_R

We had a great time with Luis. He was alot of fun. He showed us the best places to see fish. This was first day they opened the beaches for water activities since the storm. The water was a little murky & the waves were strong since the hurricane just came through, so timing wasn’t great for snorkeling. We saw lots of fish though and some manta rays. It was also nice to just be at a swimmable beach!
