They did a great job, simply put. Did not get to see the infamous hidden beach due to high tide, but they made up for it. And they leave a surprise on the way back that is rather enjoyable. Good times, great staff, and good food and drinks!
The staff were absolutely amazing and the experience was everything we hoped for. Staff were friendly, organized, and professional. We felt like we were truly part of the family! They made sure that their guests were cared for and even did an Evolution of Dance show for us on the way back to shore! We will absolutely be returning and recommend this tour to young couples, old couples, families, young kids, etc.
This was my 15th trip to PV and had recently learned abouth the islands and hidden beach well worth the trip. The sights incredible and the crew on the excursion were friendly and accomodating it was a full boat and everyone was enjoying themselves take the time and experience it!
No breakfast as stated on reservation......tour was okay, murky waters and no beach...
A great deal considering the activities included. Food and Pina Coladas/Alcohol were Not exceptional but decent. Felt safe the entire time. The biggest and only letdown was the local tour operator's policy to call one day before bc spaces are based upon availability. This was a prepaid booking!!!
The boat trip is on a nice catamaran and the crew is awesome and entertaining. The reason for 3 stars is due to the lack of visibility at snorkel spot and things to see.
Whole excursion was no where near 7 hrs.... If you snorkeled you were only out there for maybe 15-20 min at most...if you scuba dives it was the same.....not even worth putting on the equipment. Then we were dropped off on the island for a short stay...no sooner did they drop off the last motor boat full they were shuffling us back to the big boat. The lunch was decent... sandwiches, fruit and potato salad. We left the Marina about 11am and were back by 4pm the latest. To me it was NOT worth the money at all. Really the only plus was the guys on the boat were friendly and some funny....
