After ziplining all day we decided to take this dinner cruise to relax and have fun. The cost is $99 per person. There's the $77 rate to the boat, the $20 to the person who books this event for you an another $2 dock fee. Okay, we're in Cabo we're not too concerned about the price Although if you want to get this event cheaper you can by sitting through a timeshare presentation. A lot of the presentations will throw this in for free or minimum 1/2 off. You'll pay the $2 dock fee right before you board the boat. Be extremely leary of the person accepting this fee. We had a gal who suffered amnesia the second she took your money. The couple in front of us gave her a $20 USD. No sooner did she have the money in her hand she swore they gave her a $10. She refused to give them change for anything other than $10. Then we three women stepped up. One of us handed her $2 while one of us handed her a $10 wanting to pay for two. The gal gave us back $4 swearing the first gal never gave her anything. And also with amnesia came her inability to speak English so no use trying to argue with her. Fine, $2 isn't that much to lose. But as we're getting ready to get on the boat we hear arguing behind us. Yup, she's ripping off the next people in line. Geez. (I must mention here that this was the only encounter we had with someone trying to take advantage of us. Every other person we encountered was super friendly and pleasant).
Once you board the boat you either show your voucher that you've paid in full or you pay your balance to another gal. Luckily this one seems to retain memory longer than the other and therefore no hassles occurred. We were shown to our table, introduced to our waiter then was told we could go upstairs to the 3rd deck for drinks. Do not leave anything behind at your table expecting it to be there when you get back. We left our sweaters but I wouldn't leave anything you wouldn't mind never seeing again (the waiter even warned us of this so I'm not being paranoid). We had a great time on the 3rd deck having drinks and listening to the live band. There's an MC who is pretty funny too. You'll mainly want to stay on the 3rd deck until they call you for dinner. Once the boat sets sail you'll get fantastic views of the Arch. The boat even cruised to the other side of the Arch which had wonderful views as well. We were also lucky enough to see 2 whales swimming by. Unfortunately either there aren't any rules in that part of the world or the rules aren't abided by so every time those 2 whales breached every boat in the vicinity descended upon them. There were speed boats, whale watching boats, our huge Catamaran - must have been 8-10 boats in the chase. And these boats got extremely close to the whales. I'd estimate no farther then 10-15 feet. It was pretty unsettling to see.
Our salad awaited us when we returned to our table. It consisted of about 5 leaves of lettuce, some shredded carrots and cucumber and one cherry tomato cut in half. And it all sat on a spread of mustard and ketchup (people, I'm not making this stuff up). It also had a drizzle of a raspberry dressing as well. I wish they'd forgo the M&K but I think it was their idea of "presentation". When you make your reservations you will also select your dinner choice. One of us chose chicken while the other two chose fish. The fish was served cold with a large helping of white sauce which tasted sort of like watered down mayonaise. Neither of the two who ordered the fish could consume it so we asked for one chicken plate and split it. The whole dinner was not memorable at all (at least not in a positive way) which is why I only rated this event 3 out of 5 stars.
After dinner there's entertainment. There was a gentleman who sang 2 tenor songs (loved the fact he was wearing skin tight pants with an iphone clearly visable in his front right pocket), a couple who danced two different styles of tango, and a few other acts. Overall it was a nice show. Then off the boat you go. Don't fret about finding transportation back to your hotel or where ever else your night takes you. There are taxis and peditaxis as far as the eye can see waiting on the dock.
If you don't have high expectations for a great meal this cruise is actually a nice event (provided you can dole out less than $99 for it).
