Cruise Ship Stop - Any tours that incude seeing the arch?

We will be arriving for a day in Cabo via cruise ship next month. I prefer not to book an excursion with the cruise line but would like to go on some kind of tour that includes seeing the arch. I prefer to book with a local company. There will be 4 adults in our group. Should we book ahead of time? Is weather ever an issue? Any recommendations?

No need to book ahead of time. Expect to pay around $5-10 usd per person for water taxi ride or tour of the arch. Weather shan’t be an issue unless there’s a major weather disturbance in the area. Plenty of water taxi boats will be in abundance so no reason to choose a particular boat.

Enjoy your trip.

When you step off the Tender Dock onto the Marina you will immediately see Vendors selling tours to the arch. Right next to Tender Dock is Dock 5 is where you will go after you purchase your tour. There are lots of Water Taxi's going back forth to the Arch for the Tour.

Here is a Map showing the tender dock and Dock 5 location in the middle of the Map at the + sign.

As mentioned above, you will not be able to avoid being asked 624,312 times by vendors if you want a water taxi, boat tour, timeshare tour or a day of fishing as you circle the marina on your way to town where your will have 217,741 opportunities to buy the same t-shirt, blanket, pottery or ironwood figurine at all the stores in town.

Cindystar you will see the arch as you ride the ship tender into the harbor and enter the marina - you cannot miss it! Hope this helps - enjoy your time in Cabo and your cruise ship vacation as well.
