Are you looking for the best luxury dinner cruise in Los Cabos, Mexico? Look no further than the Animalon by the Sea. Having dinner on Cabo’s first floating restaurant is perfect for any special occasion, but especially during your honeymoon or anniversary trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The Animalon by the Sea is a Rich & Kitch favorite for many reasons & we can’t wait to share more about the luxury dinner cruise experience with you here!
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:
Guacamole & blue corn tortilla chips
Fried gnocchi with aged manchego cheese, & ibérico han
Bread & honey butter
Local kampachi, coconut leche de tigre, french green beans, toasted coconut, & red onion
Roasted tomato soup with grilled lobster, heirloom tomato, basil, & sourdough bread
Grilled octopus with quinoa & creamy potato
Beef agnolotti with fresh peas, horseradish foam, & parmesan cheese
Sweet cornbread with corn husk milk, tapioca & zucchini flower
All of the meals were spaced out nicely during the boat ride, service was top-notch with presenting the food & bringing us cocktails, & the entire experience was just spectacular!
Animalon by the Sea has an impressive full bar & the bartenders know how to make a spicy cocktail! There is also an espresso machine on board & they make the best carajillo we’ve ever had (& trust us, we’ve had our fair share of carajillos!)
Animalon also offers the option to purchase cocktails only, but we highly recommend the entire dining experience. You can even purchase a wine pairing package to go along with your meal which we are sure would be amazing, but we love our cocktails! Animalon by the Sea is truly a luxurious experience & 100% worth booking during your Los Cabos honeymoon and/or anniversary trip. We were so impressed & can’t wait to do dine on the Animalon again!
