Amazing experience!! - If you want an inclusive, close-up experience at the Arch of Cabo I definitely recommend this Kayaking activity!! Kayaks are doubles and we paddled from the beach right up to the arch. It can be busy around the arch, but they still got individual pictures in front of it… for free!! The tour guides were amazing and fun! At Lovers Beach we got granola bars and cold bottled water. They took more free pictures of our group- very good quality! Next we kayaked to another beach and had the best snorkeling experience we’ve had. Life jackets were optional, so we got to dive down closer to the reefs. We got to see schools of fish, even colorful ones too. They don’t take snorkeling photos, but we brought waterproof phone pouches that worked great! The roundtrip transportation was reliable and so convenient from our resort in San Lucas. The 4 of us had a van to ourselves.

Awesome Experience-highly recommend!! - We had an amazing experience kayaking and snorkeling with True Baja. Sasha was our driver and was on time, very friendly, and so professional. The vehicle was very clean. Fernando and Josue were our guides and were awesome the entire way. They instructed us on how to row the kayaks and took our pictures at the arch. During our snorkeling tour, they took us to the best locations to see lots of fish. Would not hesitate to book this excursion again and can’t recommend True Baja enough-so professional and attentive to their clients!

Memorable family trip! - In short, we felt well well taken care of by our guide, Pablo IIRC, and we had a BLAST. As a dad I was a little worried about being out on potentially rough waters with my kids and wife, all of us inexperienced at kayaking. We were given a quick paddling tutorial, instructed on how we’d load up and then headed out. Our guide was very safety conscious and led us along a path, making sure we were clear of rocks and boats. I’m certain they’d postpone if conditions were unsafe for novice kayakers. We paddled out to el arco and took in the impressive site. Stunning! Then we paddled to Lovers beach and had a snack and lesson on the local environment. It’s an amazing place to stand upon and only accessible by water. Second stop was to snorkel and although it was a bit cold, there was plenty of sea life to see in and around that small reef. Good times overall! Memorable trip.

Amazing - Our guide Fernando was awesome! My mom was really nervous but he made sure to check in with her to make sure she was good through out the trip. It was definitely worth waking up before the sun was out to go. The weather was perfect , the views were perfect. Would 100% recommend the sunrise time slot.

100% recommended! - Amazing experience! The Guide was excellent, the places to row and the beaches we got off to were wonderful. We snorkeled in an area full of beautiful marine species. The Guide told us many interesting facts about the place and took some great photos. In addition, they went for us to the hotel and returned us to it. Just amazing.

A vibe! - First off, Pablo and Sasha were very friendly drivers, so thank you. We chose 6am option and we’re not disappointed. Josue takes safety seriously he definitely makes the effort to ensure we are all equipped with the tools and info to enjoy ourselves in the experience, so no need to worry. He definitely is knowledgeable about the area and was happy to take silly photos of my gf and I at lovers beach. He also suggested some food spots in the area for us to try. I was amazed at all the marine life by pelican rock, it’s a special experience!

Highly recommend! - Highly recommend this kayak tour! Our guides were Josue and Fernando and they were amazing. They provided dry bags for our belongings and gave informative, helpful advice for us beginning kayakers. They took pictures of us at the arch and emailed them a day later at no additional charge. We did this tour in July which is manta ray season. It was such a cool experience kayaking along with the manta rays jumping out of the water. We did the sunrise tour (so worth waking up early) in hopes of the water being less choppy. Despite our efforts, I still got very seasick and our guides were so accommodating in helping to take care of me, which ultimately ended with cutting our tour short and having to go back to shore. It was still worth it, and I highly recommend.

Excellent Kayak and Snorkel - It was a beautiful excursion. It is very physical so be prepared to go the distance. The snorkeling site was the most beautiful I have experienced. The hosts were great!
