We went on the snorkeling tour ( no party boats - thank goodness). Maury Sanchez and Poco were the best tour guides. We got picked up first and dropped off last but thoroughly enjoyed our time talking to them getting to know the culture. They also made a special detour to get me a wet suit. Maury guided us as we snorkeled so we knew where to go. Maury’s attention and quick reactions also helped us avoid an accident when someone backed out in front of us. He should be commended for making us feel at home away from home- I highly recommend this company and if I return would book directly with them. Thanks Maury and Poco for a great day despite bad drivers getting in our way!!!

This was hands down the best snorkeling we did in Cabo - we had three different snorkeling experiences booked and this far exceeded the other two. Our guide was amazing - he felt like a leader and also caretaker, explaining anything we needed to lookout for and also highlighted all the coolest parts. This was as close to scuba as you can get without certification - so many different fish and going to two locations was fantastic. I would HIGHLY recommend you do this outing, even if it's the only organized activity you do in Cabo. Thank you for the experience!!

Thank you for your nice recommendation! We are glad that you enjoyed the snorkeling activity to the fullest, without a doubt one of the best places to see the great variety of fish, and reefs in the crystal clear waters of Chileno and Santa Maria.

We had a fantastic time paddling with Maury & snorkeling with Paco & Erik. They were so friendly and stayed cheerful during delays and launched all 10 of us seamlessly off the beach at Santa Maria and took pictures all along the coast. It was particularly cool they we’re able to tell us the names of the fish we were seeing and take the time to let us climb all over the rocks along the beach. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend them!

Amazing trip snorkeling to Chilleno Bay with Marco. We went out early to avoid any afternoon winds. The water was cool enough to require wetsuits. The wetsuits and snorkeling equipment was top notch, practically brand new. Marco was a great guide, pointing out the fish and several turtles in the crystal clear water. Just an all around great experience.

Great snorkel trip to Chileno Bay with Pepe & Efrain. Our group opted to bypass Santa Maria bay due to conditions, so we had extra long snorkel at Chileno, which was wonderful. Both Pepe and Efrain were very knowledgeable, attentive to our group, and safety conscious - especially when the surf & currents picked up out of no where during our Snorkel! Thank you Pepe & Efrain!!

This was a short trip 3 hours from pick up to drop-off) to visit two different snorkeling spots that are accessible off the beaches near Cabo. Visibility was not perfect due to a recent storm, but our guide Pepe did an excellent job scouting each location and pointing out various finds among the reefs (Lobsters, needlefish, etc) as we explored each reef. Although three hours seem short, we felt it was a good duration as it mixed snorkeling sessions with beach time to warm up and learn about other tourist attractions from Pepe. If you book with High Tide Los Cabos, I recommend you request Pepe as he did a great job of taking care of us on and off the water during our entire outing.

This was our 2nd tour booked with High Tide and so glad we stuck with them!!! Sabina in the office was amazing to work with and super easy and fast to communicate with.

Maury was our snorkeling guide and we were so happy to see him when he picked us up as we had just gone on their Todos Santos Jeep tour 2 days prior with Maury as our guide. He explained exactly where we were going and what we should expect while on the drive there. Couldn't be happier with our experience! We've snorkeled in a number of different spots through our travels but have to say, this was by far the best! Water was extremely clear and numerous times we were surrounded by schools of fish, sometimes as many as 50+. The underwater pictures and videos we have are amazing! Swam around MANY different coral formations at each beach and were able to take our time to see some really unique and colorful fish, sea urchins, conchs, etc. Maury was sure to explain to us where to go to be able to get great views while not touching and disturbing the coral.

The pace of the overall tour to both beaches was never rushed and we highly recommend this if in the area.

My girlfriend and I had a really great time snorkeling and talking to our guide Sergio. Sergio was a really knowledgeable and genuine person to talk to who you could tell actually enjoyed his job. We were able to see a lot of sea-life and he also gave us some pretty insightful tips about activities in Cabo and SJ Del Cabo.
We originally booked the "Los Cabos Arch & Playa del Amor tour by Glass bottom kayak", however due to recent Coronavirus restrictions by the government that limited access to the Arch, we did the snorkeling tour instead. When our booking was first affected, Sabina at High Tide Sea Expeditions was very helpful in offering either a full refund or changing our tour to snorkeling (with the refund for the cost difference in tours). Overall, I liked High Tide Sea Expeditions because their staff seemed quite friendly, helpful and not pushy with the sales tactics.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review, we certainly enjoy knowing our guest had a good time at our experiences. Sergio is a great guide, we are pleased you enjoyed the tour with him. Very sorry we had to change your original reservation but it was not optional, authorities restrictions are still quite uncertain at this times and everything can change form one day to another. Hope to see you again on your next visit to Cabo, hopefully, we can take you to the Arch !! Best Regards HT Team

Our family was not aware this was only someone picking you up in a van and taking you to free beaches to snorkel. Had to carry our stuff (including our kids) down to the beach and more so just sent us into the water to snorkel. We could have taken a taxi to Santa Maria and Chileno ourselves and did this and saved a lot of money $$$$$. I would have expected a little more hands-on guide and not just thrown in to look at the fish. Plus having to carry our things down (as well as our childrens) was quite cumbersome. :(

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us. We take the satisfaction of our guests most seriously and in this case, it is quite clear that we have failed. I do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Please be assured I will personally look into all the issues raised with our Manager to ensure they are addressed appropriately. However, in order to do this, I need to know when did you take the tour since I can not find your reservation in our system. Please contact us at info@hightideloscabos.com with more details of your reservation. As for now, I can definitely say the guide is there to help you to snorkel at the spots with the best visibility as well as facilitate gear needed for the snorkel. He should carry all the gear and you just take care of your personal belongings, that is why I ask you to contact us so I can investigate further. Best Regards Sabina Macouzet HT Team

Jose Luis and Paco are some extremely shredded surf dudes who took us on a fantastic tour this morning. They picked us up in the lobby of our hotel right on time, and drove us to a beach where we climbed into kayaks. We paddled for about 1 mile with beautiful views and then got to one of the best snorkeling reefs I have ever been to. Jose Luis showed us the best spots, and even brought us a puffer fish to pet. Just some tips: you can leave things in the van, but whatever you take on the kayak will likely get wet. Also, the snorkeling bay is a little bumpy, so it is best for those who are fairly comfortable swimming in the ocean.
