This was the highlight of our trip. The crew is so kind and welcoming. They made sure you were taken care of in every way. We never went without a drink. The food was amazing. Rissalina is a great cook and we really enjoyed having a meal while cruising. We saw other huge party boats and way too many tiny... More

My husband and I and another couple booked a sunset cruise on the Rissalena. We highly recommend this sunset cruise! It isn't a big double decker boat with a bunch of crazy drunk spring break kids on it. So if that's what you are looking for, probably look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a fun, beautiful time hosted... More

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Cabo, which was highlighted by our Whale Watching Cruise on the Rissalena! We had read the great reviews and it did not disappoint. Laura, Artemis, Chuey and Danny provided a wonderful experience on board their beautiful, spotlessly clean, catamaran. Love these people, I feel like we have made some new friends! They... More

The dinner cruise is something we look forward to each year. Laura and the crew are top notch and just like family. Laura prepares the best food Cabo has to offer, and the sunset cruise is awesome. This year we were lucky to see several whales as well. Can't wait until next year!

We wanted to do a sunset dinner cruise in Cabo San Lucas, so after a fair bit of research it became apparent that Rissalena is THE cruise to take and we were connected with Cabovillas.com (thanks Nik!), who helped make all of the necessary arrangements and were very helpful in planning our time in Cabo. I highly recommend contacting cabovillas.com... More

We read about Rissalena Cruises on Trip Advisor and based on the recommendations felt it was the trip for us. We were not disappointed at all, once the trip was arranged. We did have a hard time getting reservation. I wasn't able to reach anyone at the number provided and then emailed with no response for 2 days. However, the... More

We found out about this gem from some of our friends who have been coming to Cabo for more than 25 years. This boat was hand built by Edwardo who has kept this boat meticulous from the day it was completed. Unfortunately he is no longer able to come out on the boat but the crew who is truly family...

The crew of this magnificent catamaran are just the most hospitable folks in Cabo, Laura, Aramis, Chuey treat you like family and make sure your experience is five star. The food and beverage experience while out whale watching was as good as seeing those magnificent whales up close and personnel. We rented the entire boat for our group all who... More
