It was the perfect no-stress way to see the islands, the boat big enough for people to spread out in the sun or stay in the shade. I didn't snorkel, but the people who did had a grand time. I read a book. I enjoyed the scenery. I even enjoyed the rain.

This was an amazing day out and I would recommend to anyone looking to explore the Rosario islands. We were warned off the typical five island tour by a friend and found this lovely alternative. The boat is huge and beautiful and the whole day feels really luxurious. We had a range of couples, friends, families and it was perfect. Worth the money and the locations they take you to are stunning and not crowded with other tourists. You anchor in two different areas and swim/snorkel/jumó from the boat. You don’t actually go to a beach at all but we didn’t mind that as we’d heard a lot of the beaches you are bothered by vendors etc.

The boat is really spacious and it’s a very relaxing itinerary. Lunch was also really good! You can swim to the beach at one of the islands but otherwise there’s not really any opportunity to go to the actual islands, just something to be aware of. You just get to swim around the boat
