Arch of Cabo San Lucas (El Arco)

Land's End, Cabo San Lucas, 23410

The Basics

Because El Arco is a natural formation that’s accessible only by water, the only way to get close to it is by boat. Numerous tours leaving from the Cabo San Lucas marina offer various ways to see the arch. Adventurous travelers can opt for a kayaking and snorkeling tour—or parasail over it! Those looking to relax with friends can sail by it on a catamaran or sailboat, or take an evening cruise that includes dinner and drinks.

Perfect Short Cabo Water Tour
Captain was friendly and knowledgeable and so very patient with the kids! He got us close to every little spot for pictures and great views- sharing some stories and jokes along the way. Dock hand was equally pleasant and we will be back. I don’t speak Spanish, so the free flowing English conversations were a huge plus.

Private Fishing Tour in Cabo San Lucas with Food and Drink
The boat and crew were fantastic. We were waiting to be brought down and were the last group finally taken, so was getting worried something had happened! But, made it on, caught several Mahi Mahi and our group of 4 had an amazing trip. Saw the arch, whales, sea lions and caught fish which we had cleaned and cooked up upon return at La Chatita!
Price is Affordable. Boat is Clean

Shared ride to the arch of Cabo San Lucas
AMAZING, Amazing, AMAZING! Our tour guide Nieves was outstanding. We were able to capture beautiful pictures. Ask a million question. Listen to music our choice and learn about the local area. Would highlight recommend. The price is cheaper than the rest of the tour groups. The boat is clean and with a cover(to keep out the sun). Highly recommend.

Cabo San Lucas Private 38 ft Sailing Tour with Snorkeling
My husband and I had an amazing time on our sail in Cabo. From the minute we got on the boat we were welcome, taken care of, and pampered. The captain and first mate were both friendly, and professional and made it all about us and what we wanted to do. We did a snorkel, and sail, and then wanted to do more swimming so they planned the 3 hours well. We had food and drinks, the boat was very clean, and everything was smooth sailing!

Cabo San Lucas: Private Boat Tour, Snorkel, SUP, and Fun Water Mat
We had a great time! The captain, Cecy, and Chiara were amazing, everything was clean and taken care of. We snorkeled, we floated on the mat, we just hung out on the boat - they matched our own vibe because we were definitely a calmer group and they just let us be. We were able to bring our own drinks which was great. Chiara took amazing photos (available for purchase at the end of the the tour). Overall, would definitely do this again if we come back to Cabo.
Great trip!

Private Yacht Cruise in Cabo San Lucas with Open Bar
The staff at Social Distance Charters were fantastic. They worked hard to ensure we had a great time and were also entertaining. The only word of caution we have, is that this ma not be a trip for land-lovers.
Amazing Experience!

Private Yacht Cruise in Cabo San Lucas with Open Bar
This trip was awesome! Gilberto and Jose were amazing guides. They were very knowledgeable and explained the history of the area and rock formations. The boat was clean and the food was great (chicken and beef fajitas, guacamole, and shrimp ceviche). They kept the drinks coming and we were able to ply the music of our choice. I highly recommend!!!
