Great boat ride/snorkel experience. Boat was easy to find & left on time. First they took us out to the arch for photos then we headed to a bay for great snorkeling, lunch & lots of drinks (poured strong). The crew was super fun & knowledgeable. On our way back the driver saw a whale and stopped the boat for us all to have a look. We were able to ride the whole way on the catamaran nets. Great music was played and the food was decent, tuna sandwiches with chips, guac & salsa. There were only about 20 people on the boat so it was not too crowded. It was clean and had working bathrooms. This was a great way to spend the afternoon. Highly recommend!

Oh my goodness, what a great time! The staff was fun and very engaging. Beautiful boat. Had so much fun snorkeling and we even got to see whales! Delicious lunch and they were very generous with the drinks. Already looking forward to our next trip with them.

Great deal for the cost. Amazing tour guides and experience more than worth the money. Saw seals whales and reef fish
