Overview
Explore the natural rock formation known as El Arco and its surrounding area on this guided kayaking and snorkeling tour from Los Cabos. Follow a guide in your glass-bottom kayak, spotting a colony of sea lions and tropical fish along the way. Then, take a dip in the water and snorkel near Pelican Rock, a protected marine area.
Highlights
  • Paddle around El Arco in a glass-bottom kayak 
  • Snorkel near Pelican Rock and spot marine life
  • Learn about local ecology and geology from your guide
  • Round-trip transportation from hotels and cruise ship pier is included
What to Expect
After being picked up at your Los Cabos hotel or at the cruise ship pier, head out to Medano Beach where you’ll be able to catch views of El Arco (or the Arch), a jagged rock formation that symbolizes Cabo. While on the beach, receive safety instructions and learn basic paddling techniques. Then, be outfitted with a life jacket and snorkeling gear and head out in your glass-bottom kayak. Your guide will help you maneuver the waters of the southern end of Cabo San Lucas, known as Land’s End. As you paddle around, spot pelicans and seabirds, as well as schools of fish, manta rays, and sea turtles through your kayak. Then, dock at Pelican’s Rock, a protected marine area, for snorkeling; here you may see lobsters, angelfish, puffers, and schools of stingrays. After, return to Medano Beach to board your vehicle for the trip back to your hotel or cruise ship port.

Highly recommend this tour! Kayaking to the arch was really cool, the kayaks had a glass bottom but you couldnt see much through the glass. Snorkeling however was excellent! Tons of fish and beautiful water! Gear they provided was clean and practically new. Paco, Marco, and

Our guide was Sergio aka “Superman” —every kayak tour I’ve been on previously I’ve had to haul my own kayak to the water, but then there’s Sergio carrying three at once for us! The kayak was much more stable in the ocean waves than I thought it would be, not once was I worried

The Arches at Los Cabos is a gorgeous phenomenon. The tour we took was on an all glass boat. the tour guides were fun and nice. They take great pics of you by the arch and costs like $8 to start. But they allow you to take your own pics too. The ride is short but worth the lose

Snorkel air tube leaked and my cargo compartment had a leak so all my shirts and towels were soaked. The glass bottom is false. There are 2 storage compartments with plastic inserts. I love to kayak, but unless you consider yourself “athletic”, I would not consider this tour.

Dear Mike Thank you for your feed back, we are very sorry you did not enojoy the tour as much as we would have liked, let me clarify some points with you, *we do have fix prices, some times the time share hotels offer some discount for tours and activitys if you sing up for their presentation and in that case the time share will pay us for the discount they decide to offer to you, so definitly if you decide to spend some time with time share you can get some discounts for everything in cabo, dinners, activitys, spas, etc!! *Glass bottom is an insert of clear acrilic (you can not have glass in a kayak for security reasons). *Our guides allways have extra snorkel gear, did you let your guide know about snorkel air tube?? am sure he did change it inmediatly!! *The paddle part is about 30 min each way, i do not consider this for athletic people, but definitly is for persons that enjoy do some excersise while having fun!! *The arch is very popular place, that is why we always suggest the 9 am tour, to avoid yacht and boat wakes !! *our kayaks have no cargo compartment. Hope i did clarify some of the issues but if you need some extra info you can contact at info@hightideloscabos.com Best Regards HT TEam
