Be picked up from the meeting point at the Malecon in Esperanza across the Street from the Blok hotel. Relax on the short drive to Mosquito bay. Be greeted by a team that will help you aboard the catamaran.

Excellent tour! Why suffer numb legs in the alternative tour using a kayak when you can book an electric boat tour? So glad this option existed as were the other parties on the boat.
