Laura,Chewy and Artimus were excellent under adverse conditions. We did both a Sunset Cruise and a Snorkeling Cruise. The seas were a little rough, but being sailors, we knew what to expect. Some of the passengers did not and they suffered with seasickness on the journey. All of the crew were extremely sensitive and attentive to their needs. Captain Artemus... More

El Arco at it's best! Crew so friendly. Best margaritas in Cabo too! Barbecue chicken dinner outstanding. And, the perfect sunset cruise. When in Cabo, we always take the Rissalena out for a sunset cruise. Whale watching is great if the whales are around. We've taken many other sunset cruise in Cabo, but this one is the best experience.

Just to give you an idea of how much I love going on the Rissalena... My first time on the beautiful boat was in 2001! Every time I visit Cabo (usually once per year) I make a point to book the Rissalena. Whether you do the snorkeling, whale watching or Sunset Cruise, you will NOT be disappointed. The crew literally... More

Brought a party of 8 out on this wonderful sunset cruise on a beautiful night in Cabo. The 4 person staff led by Laura and her husband were fantastic from the moment we boarded. Though they can take as many as 25 on this beautifully kept catamaran, a large party of 10 had cancelled so we only had 13 on... More

Booked the Rissalena with some friends and family as well as some smaller children, ages 9 mo's - 6 years old. The snorkeling cruise ran from 10 am - 1 pm, and we had a great day for boating, minimum wind and almost no swell. The crew is very child friendly, the boat is perfect and has lots of shade... More

Can booked for a private or semi private sunset dinner cruise on a luxury catamaran. It's run by an amazing woman (Laura), her daughter (Ashley), 2 guys that make the best margaritas ever and the captain (=5 crew). Its limited to around 20-30 guests so there is plenty of room to sit or move around if you want. They took... More
