Tour Overview

Board your vessel at the dock and set out on an excursion to El Arco, the majestic rock formation delineating where the waters of the Sea of Cortez meet the Pacific at Land's End.

Thundering waves and strong ocean currents created The Arch, this magnificent natural landmark and iconic symbol of the area. Years ago, it was used by pirates as a hiding place where they could lie in wait to ambush the merchant ships heading for the west coast.

As you sail the azure blue waters, a taped narration by Jean-Michel Cousteau provides commentary on the area's ecology and points of interest. Keep your cameras ready since the waters teem with wildlife and you may see pelicans, sea lions, and playful seals.

At the completion of your boat ride, board your air-conditioning transportation for a short drive through town in route to a local restaurant, famous for its panoramic views of the Bay of Cabo San Lucas. On the way to the scenic stop, you will drive around the main plaza from Cabo San Lucas, the church and local Museum, listening part of the history of this town. Once we arrive to the cantilevered venue, enjoy views of your cruise ship and the dramatic Arch in the background. Relax in the beautiful natural surroundings while admiring the spectacular vistas.

Another short drive takes you back through town to your ship at the pier.
