Cabo San Lucas The Arch (El Arco) & Lover's Beach Excursion Reviews

This majestic rock formation, carved by the ocean currents, is the most recognized landmark in Cabo San Lucas. Located at Land's End, around the corner from Lover's Beach, it is a haven for sea lions.
Beautiful tour.

Got a trip around Cabo with a lot of history, including a quick trip to a Tequila factory. Afterward, we got in a boat to go to the Arch. The party was really fun, though I wish we'd known beforehand about the port fee, just so we were prepared (I mean, we were, but I like to know these things in advance). The best shopping of any city on our trip. Read Less

We sort of winged it in Cabo. We planned activities for the other two ports, and thought we would just see what appealed to us in Cabo. There were several guys standing around, trying to drum up business for boat tours, so we took one of the glass bottom boat tours that went around the Arch and Lover's Beach, and a few other sights. I have to say...our boat was not that great. Be aware that "glass bottom boat" really is just a small window in the bottom of the boat. In our case, it was a dirty window at that. AND there were two windows, so that everyone in the boat could see, but the one we were seated next to, was full of junk. Literally. My husband and another passenger had to empty out a trash bag, some rags, and other stuff, just to see through it. My husband told the other passenger, "I feel like it's you who deserves the tip when this is done!" Also, the guide didn't spend much time near the sights, to allow for pictures. However, he did drop us off at a small, deserted beach near Lover's beach, so that we could snorkel and swim and agreed to come back and pick us up in two hours. There was only one other couple on the beach, so it was lovely to practically have it all to ourselves. We had a lot of fun playing in the ocean and laying on the sand and he did come back and get us (we were a little sketchy on that point), so all in all, the day was fun. We ended it with a margarita at Senor Frog's. Read Less

The boat ride was wonderful. the glass blowing was a typical Mexican show. Fast, cheap, shoddy. One third of the group hired a van to return to the ship AVOID this excursion.

Another terribly boring tour. At least you could catch the tender and walk around the town but nothing was open when I got there because we docked and were in Cabo at 8 am.

Excursion: Cabo San Lucas CSLS 0611 Deluxe Coastal Cruise & Whale Watching Cruise 2 1/2 hrs. on board the150 PASSENGER CATAMARAN CABO MAR. Try getting on among the first of your fellow passengers, go straight to the top deck and forward. By sitting facing forward rather than towards the stern, you've an excellent vantage from which to lean upon the forward railing--AND YOUR LAP, LEGS, AND FEET are in the shade. After leaving the marina just several hundred feet from where our NCL STAR's tender dropped us, we rode right past our home for two weeks to our starboard side and within minutes we passed quietly through the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortes) to view the lovely Lover's Beach. Moments later we were passing huge rock formations rising from the sea and serving today as a lounging area for upwards to 40 noisy, honking sea lions. Moments later it was the sea birds perched high on their jagged, rocky crags. Then, as if it were peering around the corner was El Arco, the much photographed southernmost point of land before turning west and north (in our case) into the Pacific Ocean...and the back side of Lover's Beach, which on the ocean side is called Divorce Beach. The Cabo Mar crew was splendid in passing among us numerous times offering free Rum Punches, Margaritas, colas, and water. Later, as the voyage was winding down, we were offered bags of potato chips and cookies. Neither the sea, nor the crew nor the whales could have been more hospitable. Read Less
