Animalon by the Sea is a unique culinary & luxury sunset boat ride experience aboard Los Cabos’ first floating restaurant. The meal selections by the acclaimed chef Javier Plascencia are amazing & there is an option to add wine pairings to your dining experience. In true Rich & Kitch style, we celebrated our wedding anniversary on the Animalon by the Sea & we were so impressed!!!
Animalon by the Sea is the chicest floating restaurant in Cabo & the excursion includes a 3-hour dinner cruise around the Sea of Cortez. In the summer, we arrived at the dock at 5:30pm and then cruised from 6 to 9 which is perfect for photo opportunities by the famous Cabo arch, as well as beautiful summer sunsets. The Animalon is a 2-story, 49’ pontoon boat, offering a very smooth & enjoyable ride. The boat decor is boho chic & very aesthetically pleasing (& we need to give a shout-out to the nicest & best-decorated boat bathrooms we’ve ever seen lol!)
Having dinner on the Animalon was amazing & the 5-course menu did not disappoint. The menu changes seasonally, but the food we had in June was delicious. The portion sizes were more than expected, so make sure you arrive hungry! Here is a list of all of the courses we got to try:
