Esme and Arturo were amazing guides! I had a great time paddling out to the arches and they were so patient and helpful with others in the group who needed help. We went to a great spot for snorkeling and saw so many beautiful schools of fish. It's clear that they're really passionate about sharing this piece of Cabo with visitors. They were so thoughtful and even had fresh water for us to rinse off our sandy feet at the end. 10/10 would recommend this tour to anyone coming to Cabo!

Highly recommend! Guides were knowledgeable and accommodating! I arranged my pick up details via email and pick up was prompt and easy. The two bays chosen were beautiful and we had sufficient time to see everything we wanted while snorkeling! More fish than we had originally expected! Everything was well organized. We felt comfortable and safe the whole time and would recommend to any friend visiting Cabo
