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.

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!!!
