My wife and I LOVED the sunset cruise. We are here celebrating our honeymoon and our host Ivan made the experience really special for us. He was a great emcee and it was a great way to end another great day in Cabo. We hope to come back and have Ivan as our host again. Everything was great (entertainment, snacks, drinks, views). Wish it never ended! This is a must do in Cabo!

The tour was excellent we really enjoy the boat ride, they took us to a local restaurant and the Food was delicious and really good portions as well. I like the sightseeing of the town and learning about its culture our tour guy was very knowledgeable.

We had a fabulous kayak and snorkel trip! Our guides were fun and informative, but most importantly we felt they considered our safety first and foremost.

Great time on the kayaking snorkel trip! Casey Michael was great!

We had an amazing experience with Kasey and his crew.
