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.

Amazing tour
We had the most wonderful trip with Manuel as our captain, as well as Pedro on board. They were super sweet and amazing hosts to this trip. Food was great, drinks were great, the views were amazing, and we also went snorkeling and saw so many fish!

Snorkeling Tour in Cabo San Lucas
We had a great time on this tour. Boat was clean. Staff was friendly and attentive. Snorkeling was fun. Wish we had a little more time for that but overall it was a great trip. Even with me getting sea sick the staff was right there to help me. Definitely would book again.

Private Boat Tour from Cabo San Lucas with Snorkeling Gear 6 pax
Anthony was such a calm and amazing host! We ate, swam, relaxed, played music and took lots of pictures. Not only did we pull out to “sea” right on time, but he made sure we were well taken care of from start to finish. The boat was clean/sanitized and the bathroom was spotless! Highly recommend over any other “boat” experience for smaller groups.

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!

Luxury Sailing and Snorkeling Cruise in Cabo San Lucas
Highly recommend. The crew was great. The boat was clean and newer. Drinks and food were good. We had a a great time just cruising the bay, soaking in the sun, and watching the crazy people in the small boats. Highly recommend! Worth the money especially with wanting to social distance on a larger boat.

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.

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.

How to Get There

El Arco is located at the tip of Land’s End, the spit of land running east of downtown Cabo San Lucas and the marina. It is accessible only by boat, whether on a tour, independently, or via boat taxi.

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.
