We had the best time! The guides were absolutely fabulous. They took us across two beaches so we ended up on a hidden beach with no one else around. We got in the water and had a blast snorkeling. The water was great, saw lots of cool fish and even a couple of white tip reef sharks. After we got out, we relaxed on the beach while the hosts made fresh guacamole. Having a cold beer after snorkeling was just a bonus! Thank you for a wonderful day.

This trip was amazing! The staff was great, it’s an amazing boat for plenty of people. We had a small group and it was so much fun. The space is clean and the staff is very helpful. The food was great, open bar with good drinks. Beautiful views! Overall, a great experience and I would recommend!!

Casey is beyond capable of making every Cabo trip an amazing adventure. The arch is absolutely beautiful with the company to match. He and his wife run this travel company and it is AMAZING. Highly recommend and will be recommending to my friends and family. A must do

This was a GREAT day!!! Dellis and guerimo were fantastic! They made the excursion fun, easy, and comfortable. They even took the time On our way back to explore a pod of playing dolphins! Recommend 110%!!!

Casey was great: very informative and accommodating and super-friendly. We would definitely use him again! Cabo Pulmos was very remote, on a bone-jarring road, but we’ll worth the trip. Fabulous snorkeling!
