Great experience; however, please note that once you pay online you would then have to pay an additional $87 together if you’re using card for you and your partner. If you’re using a double ATV. I also wish we stopped a bit more for pictures.

Our guides were amazing! We were unfortunately rained out and chose to end our tour 2 hours early but the 2 hours we did spend on the Catamaran were amazing! Would 100% do it again!

The best day trip in Cabo. We had a great experience kayaking and snorkeling. Highly recommend it. Out of all the excursions we went on. This way by far the best!

Fun for the whole family! Was a amazing experience that will last a life time.

The guys were so great and so friendly. Had an absolutely amazing time !!
