We enjoyed the boat ride, saw many whales and dolphins. Although the water visibility was not good during snorkeling we could still see some sea life. The island stop was fun. Overall we really enjoyed the trip and the crue was great. They do take safety as high priority but still make it a fun and exciting. Thanks to all.

Should be called party cruise
Mark_D
, Mar 2020
So the bright spot in this was the crew, who were very attentive and friendly. Other than that, they should probably call this a party cruise. There were entirely too many people on this boat, with a short snorkeling excursion. After snorkeling with the million people in orange vests, then it was about an hour wait in line for food. We were in the back of the line, so we just got the scraps that everyone had already touched. They have a little beach they take you too afterwards, but for some reason, we all just floated on the boat for an hour and a half trying to get lunch. Would have made more sense in organization and time to have lunch on the beach. On top, the alcohol flowed like water and about 1/4 of the boat was drunk as hell. Some people were throwing up in their cups and stumbling around. Waste of money and time.

Great tour

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.

Too short of time at Marietas!!

The experience was a very pleasant day, however, we were only at the Marietas Island for less than an hour. We spent more time at the secondary location that is owned by Vallarta Adventures. I believe that the title of their adventure is misleading.

If you like being surrounded by hundreds of people in orange life jackets then this is the tour for you. The only reason I did not give this tour 1 star is because the staff on the boat were amazing. The main guide Isa was hilarious and did a great job during the tour.
