Cabo Sunset Cruises
An evening in Cabo is surely no ordinary evening — especially aboard a sunset dinner cruise. If you want to try something different for your next trip to Cabo, then a dinner at sea is the right way to go. Experience an evening full of magic as you dine in style and take in the beauty of Cabo San Lucas.
From all-you-can-drink cruises to those with dinner and entertainment, there’s a sunset cruise for every traveler. Catamarans and sailboats are most common for cruising around Cabo. Tickets range anywhere from $25 to $89 US depending on whether dinner is served. Reservations may either be made at most hotels or at the Cabo marina.
We went with the Caborey dinner cruise. Given its rather expensive $89 per person price tag, we were surprised to see all tables were booked and the boat filled with people. Upon entering, a man confirmed our reservation and seated us at our table. We were expecting our friends, but didn’t find them on the first floor so we went upstairs. The Caborey has three floors, the top one being the observation deck. On the observation deck is a bar serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. I ordered a Mai Tai, glanced around the deck, and found our pals towards the back.
The top deck is a great lounging area — especially with the good live band they have performing there to further up the atmosphere. The band consisted of four members: one who’s either singing or playing the guitar, another playing a different guitar or the electric piano, the third guy playing the electric bass, and the fourth on drums.

We had spent much of our day in the water, having a good time in a snorkeling tour with a boat that moved a lot; so it felt like somewhat of a relief to be dressed for dinner and on a boat that’s very stable. The Caborey is pretty big, so it’s stable and easy to walk around without losing balance.
After taking pictures at the top deck, including one with the Cabo arch in the background, we headed back down for dinner. I had the sea bass which was quite tasteful. Also available is stuffed chicken breast, lobster (when in season), a shrimp dish, or a vegetarian one. A cool thing about the Caborey is that it’s a cabaret on the water; while you dine, they put up a nice Mexican and Argentinian show with very professional tango dancers. The mere fact that tango dancing is possible on this boat is a further testament to its stability.
As we finished our dinner and the show had just ended, the Caborey was making its way back to the Cabo marina. Since everyone was still in the mood, and I also happen to be a magician, I found it appropriate to entertain the other guests with some close-up magic as the waiters and other workers joined in to watch. This concluded a wonderful night at sea in Cabo San Lucas aboard a sunset dinner cruise.
