Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your driver at your Los Cabos hotel or cruise ship pier and begin your oceanic odyssey to Medano Beach. The beach is an ideal vantage point to gaze at the iconic El Arco (The Arch), a rugged collection of jagged rocks that protrude dramatically from the calm ocean. 

Sink your toes into the silken sands of the beach and listen to an informative safety talk from your experienced guide. Once you’ve grasped basic paddling techniques, don your life jacket and snorkeling gear and set sail in your glass-bottomed kayak. 

Follow your guide as you maneuver Land’s End, the blissful bay where many of Los Cabos’ legendary landmarks reside. Admire pelicans and diverse sea birds as they soar past, not forgetting to gaze through the transparent boat bottom at shimmering schools of exotic fish. Keep your eye out for the manta rays and sea turtles that also inhabit the waters and paddle past the colony of sea lions lying languidly upon the sun-drenched rocks. 

Gain insight into local ecology and geology as you cruise past El Arco to the secluded Playa del Amor, a romantic and remote beach accessible only by water. Enjoy dramatic vistas of sea-sculpted boulders as you sail past the landmark. 

Arrive at Pelican’s Rock and dock your kayak in order to immerse yourself in the beautiful waters of the bay. Slip on your snorkeling gear and set off in search of lobsters, angelfish, puffers, and schools of stingrays.  

Return to your kayak and paddle around the picturesque Playa del Amor and enjoy a light snack. Absorb the tranquil atmosphere before sliding back into your kayak for the return journey to Medano Beach to board your minivan and venture back to your hotel or cruise ship port in comfort.

Fun day on the water!

Kayaking was amazing! The guys who ran our tour - Hugo, Ivan, and Alexi- did a great job giving instructions and even though I had only kayaked twice before, it was easy and I felt completely comfortable around all the boats and some strong currents. The snorkeling was good -different than in places like Hawaii or the Caribbean but again the guys were really helpful. Overall it was a great tour and a lot of fun. They also took photos so you could leave any valuables in their van and they just airdrop them at no charge which was nice. Fun in the sun and free memories as well.

Ivan and Davie were great. Very friendly and organized. The kayaking was a lot of fun. The snorkeling wasn't great, but you can't control what you are you going to see on a given day. The arc was beautiful.

We had a blast! Mauro & Marco were very pleasant and helpful! It was 3 in our party but the other family was a bigger family with small kids and M&M were very good with the kids too!. We went on the 9 am reservation..picked up on time and went out.. We kayaked out to the arch first and boyyy that water was so choppy! But we made it back and got to snorkle that was so much fun too! So many beautiful fish and the clear waters are just beautiful. I would definitely recommend this adventure to others and definitely with High Tide Los Cabos with Marco & Mauro 😃.

The Arch kayak

Hugo, Ivan, and the younger guy (forgot his name) @ High Tide los cabos were fun and helpful guides. They made sure that we were comfortable, and safe. Water was a little choppy due to time of day, and season, but got great views, and pics! If you’ve never kayaked before, I recommend trying it out.

I should have done the dinner cruise instead. . .
Toni_G

My companion and I felt rushed kayaking to/from the Arch. We actually felt like we were being singled out. I thought the ride would be nice and easy and you can't really see through the glass (I think it's actually plastic) bottom kayak. I also thought we would get closer to the Arch but did not. I normally love snorkeling but this experience was very unpleasant. The tour guide made me feel more nervous than necessary. He insisted on assisting me and my friend. I guess we looked as if we would drown in our life vest.
icon Response from Host , Apr 2021
We are very sorry you felt this experience was unpleasant, definitely a totally different experience from a dinner cruise, a kayak tour is an eco activity, you are on the water; a dinner cruise is a big boat, and believe me, you don't get close to the Arch as much as you do in a kayak. I believe both activities are totally different experiences. The tour that you took was a group kayak, because of it the group has to be tougher for safety reasons. our guides assist you because that is what a guide should do, they were trying to be hospitable, on the snorkel part he helped (not sure if you or your friend) to feel comfortable and he was all the time by your side since he noticed you were not feeling totally confident, he helped you accommodate mask and snorkel properly and tried to do the best so you enjoyed the tour. About the kayaks, the glass bottom is a transparent fiberglass insert, glass would be very dangerous. You were close to the Arch, the arch is a rock formation, if you get closer you have the risk to get pulled by currents and ended crashing with a rock, captain of the port have some rules of how close you can get, and of course weather influence on this, we have to follow the rules for your safety.

Highlight of the Trip

We had such an awesome time. It was a small group of just my mom and myself. We got a thorough tour of all the highlights and then some! Our guide, Maury, was incredibly kind and thoughtful. He took my mom around snorkeling and made her feel especially comfortable. This was the highlight of the trip. Strongly recommend- especially because of the guide :)
