"Our half-day trip with GetMyBoat was a highlight of our trip to Cabo San Lucas during December. As a group of nine, we wanted to have a private tour and we were so impressed by the staff and the experience which was as advertised and for such a great price. We snorkeled and saw more types of fish than we expected, saw El Arco and some whales and enjoyed unlimited drinks and delicious lunch along the way. We'd highly recommend this experience."

"My wife and I took our two teenage boys. We were a little apprehensive at booking online and not through the hotel. The hotel tours are good but tend to be rushed and packed full. We had visited Mujeres many times and never got the opportunity to stay for a longer period on North Beach. This was the main reason for booking with Jorge so that we had that flexibility literally to do as we wanted. Jorge was superb! Very very knowledgeable about the area, the ecosystem and more importantly knows how to captain the boat safely! He took us to unique, non-tourist snorkeling areas, entertained our kids with water sport activities and educated us on the area. His English is first class and is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. If you want to experience the real Mexico and have a fun relaxing day out without pomp and circumstance this is the trip for you."

Review of Sailing on the "Obsession"
"We had an amazing sailing trip on Captain Raul's boat! The crew was very friendly, experienced, and were very knowledgable about the area. They provided beverages and snacks, including some delicious guacamole. They were very attentive to all of us. There were 8 of us on this trip and we fit very comfortably on their boat. It was an amazing day on the water!"
