We had the best time on this boat excursion!! 29 people and we had the 9am tour, which we were really late and didn’t arrive until 9:30am. They didn’t rush us, super easy going crew, and very friendly.

We had a wonderful time boating around the bay and checking out the arch before we anchored off to the side. This next part was by far the highlight of the excursion! We got to jump of the 2nd story of the boat and this was a lot of fun, especially for the kids. They also provided a floating mat, SUP, snorkeling gear, floaties, etc. They had a photographer on the boat and you had the option of purchasing all the photos and gopro video – hands down totally worth the price! The photographer was great and captured SO many great images that are priceless.

I can’t recommend this boat tour enough! You definitely will not be disappointed. Side note, Gabriela was such a pleasure to work with and she was very friendly during the planning stage!

We booked this trip to Cabo for Christmas Eve for a surprise for our boys, ages 11 & 13. We loved the idea of having our own boat, snorkeling and seeing the area from the water.

We hoped we’d get lucky and see a whale or two, boy were we wrong. As we were cruising around the bay our eagle eyed guides spotted a couple of whales and then a couple more, soon we were cruising around with whales popping up all around us.

The boys were thrilled, it was amazing. Javi and Lorena were excellent guides, very knowledgable about the whales, we learned a lot and had an amazing time. After an hour of whale watching we resumed our journey to the arch and Lovers beach. It’s was very busy around the arch but Javi is an excellent captain and was able to get us to a quiet spot on the beach where we anchored and all swam and snorkeled away from the crowds. La Isla provided a fun float mat and some tasty chips and salsa and plenty of water and sodas. The only disappointment was the snorkeling was a bit difficult for our young boys. The water was very choppy due to all the boats and the currents were strong so it was not ideal for snorkeling unless your a strong swimmer.

We had a wonderful few hours with Lorena and Javi and would highly recommend La Isla tours.


Thank you for making our trip to Cabo extra enjoyable.

The experience was all inclusive and let us have the flexibility in one trip to cover a bunch of things we were wanting to do. Crew was great and communication was impeccable. Customer service to accommodate us after unforeseen weather issues was stellar!

Thanks again!


Unbelievable time. We had a party of 13. With a mix of adults and kids 6 and under. Everyone has a blast. The crew was super professional.

And the photographer who came a long for the ride did an awesome job of capturing the event.

Will def look to use this service next time we are in Cabo.

We have been taking a private cruise with La Isla for several years and both of our boys (now 15y and 12y) say it is their FAVORITE thing we ever do … in Cabo or anywhere!

The staff at La Isla for reservations is so easy to work/communicate with and the crew they have on the boats are absolutely fabulous. This year we had a longer vacation and we went out twice with Gustavo and Luisa. We swam, we sang, we ate, we drank, we jumped off the top of the boat, we cruised the Sea of Cortez, we saw Land’s End, El Arco, and the sunset … and we had a perfect time … TWICE!

Luisa and Gustavo took amazing care of us – they were fun, helpful, and professional.

We look forward to coming back and will DEFINITELY book with La Isla again!
