    From beginning to end, this excursion was so much fun.
    The crew were great, it was well organised and worth every penny.
    We've booked again for later this week.
    Nothing at all to quibble about

    The staff were as great as the natural setting. Issa is a wonderful entertainer and manager. We will be recommending you to our friends and family.

    The entire day was well planned. There were three disctinct activities - snorkeling in the Mariettas, kayaking (could have been longer) and then a secluded beach spot. All were great and all in one trip. On the way back the open bar was a surprise, but the biggest surprise was the really delightful show that the crew put on. All in all a great tour.

    Excellent service and very professional crew. It’s worth every buck / penny you pay. Either you are a professional swimmer or don’t swim at all the crew has your covered to enjoy the activities. Highly recommended. Special Thanks to Pablo and Beto.

    We had a great time with an outstanding crew on Boat #1. Pablo was an excellent tour guide and the rest of the crew couldn’t be better.

    This trip was a lot of fun. We had a nice time snorkeling around the Marrietas islands and seeing the birds and natural beauty. The crew was super helpful and fun. The food on board was good and plentiful, and the open bar was a nice feature. We enjoyed the time at the private beach also. We highly recommend this tour.

    It was a beautiful day, if a bit chilly. The water was quite cold, and fortunately my husband and I brought our dive suits so we were fine. They tour line offered dive suits for those that wanted them, which was nice. Water was murky but we knew this since I had dived in Mexico before, so not much to see in terms of fish, etc. The tour required us to wear flotation devices, and weren't happy if we took them off, so no free diving unfortunately, not that we would have seen much. Was fun, though.

    My first time in Puerto Vallarta and my first time doing an activity like this and I must say, from someone will really high standards for things, this was fun and my friends and I had a blast. The trip took roughly 5-6 hours but that gave us plenty of time to enjoy the activities at hand and enjoy every moment. Especially, being on the boat with the crew members, who were awesome and very friendly. I came to like them and my friends and I enjoyed their company. Take advantage of this. Make friends out in the sun, on a boat making memories, that is what this trip is about. The best part, in my opinion, is the boat ride itself and just enjoying the company of friends, crew, and strangers. Enjoy it because when I come back, I'll be doing it again.

    Know for the private beach you have to swim to the beach which is fun and literally a 20-second swim. Really close
    Also, the beach sand is very rough on the feet at water level but regular once out of the water
    Know for snorkeling, the water isn't crystal clear but not too hazy were you can't see anything
