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.

Great time!
We had such a great time and the staff is wonderful. Drinks, chips/salsa/guacamole, sandwiches and pineapple with Tajin. What else do you need for a fantastic afternoon?

Great Time on the Boat

Private Boat Tour from Cabo San Lucas with Snorkeling Gear 6 pax
Amazing adventure with Cici and Alan! We had fun and learned a lot about the Sea of Cortez and Baja California. Took two girls, 9 & 10, and they had a great time snorkeling and laying out on the float. Excellent option for staying safe with COVID looming!

Private Boat Tour from Cabo San Lucas with Snorkeling Gear 6 pax
My family and I really enjoyed having our own space so the price was well worth it! The boat was the perfect size and clean. Mike was a great Captain and gracious host. We were able to play our own music and just relax while enjoying the beautiful view of Cabo. The food was absolutely tasty, I wished I had ordered more than 5 tacos a piece. I would absolutely do this tour again but bring a wet suit because the water is cold.

Excellent safety precautions, fun and friendly employees and crew, tasty drinks and snacks, and the best sunset cruise experience in Cabo. Love that it wasn’t with 100 people.

Luxury Yacht Snorkeling & Lunch Cruise from Cabo San Lucas
The crew was fantastic! They worked very hard to make sure they provided us with a great experience. The yacht itself was dated and wasn't what we expected, however the crew made up for the disappointment of the boat.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • A combo tour—including a stop at El Arco, a Cabo San Lucas shopping trip, a tequila tasting, and a snorkeling tour—is a great way to sample a variety of what the Cabo San Lucas area has to offer.

  • Small groups or families can charter a private boat for a more intimate experience.

  • A glass-bottom boat or kayak enables visitors to see the Sea of Cortez marine life in its natural habitat.

  • A sunset cruise is a wonderful way to unwind after a long day of sightseeing on land.

When to Get There

The tropical climate of Los Cabos makes El Arco delightful to explore year-round, but keep in mind that the area is at its busiest around winter (between November and April) and its rainiest in late summer.

Marine Life Around El Arco

Those interested in marine life will enjoy a scuba or snorkeling tour around El Arco. Glass-bottom kayak tours go past colonies of sea lions and plenty of tropical fish on the way to Pelican Rock and Lover’s Beach (Playa del Amor). Larger glass-bottom boat tours explore the history of Los Cabos as passengers enjoy sweeping views of Pelican Rock, El Arco, and Land’s End—where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez.
