An amazing experience. Between the fun on the boat and the fun in the water, I have no words. I didn't expect as much as I got from this sail. An amazing experience is all I have to say. Be prepared for some music and dancing as well

The food, service and hospitality was excellent. The location of the boat could have been more detailed. Our cruise ship was late coming into port because of an unforeseen problem. By the time we asked several people and made a phone call to the pier, the boat had left. We had to get a water taxi to take us out to the boat.

At times the music was too loud, and we never sailed, they were never even unfurled, but the snorkeling was fun and the captain slowed and stopped for us to see some nearby whales.

All and all a good trip.

What a wonderful afternoon. As we were heading out for our snorkeling adventure we saw some rippling in the waters that turned out to be a pod of dolphins, about 100, frolicking about. The captain followed them for a while so we could take pictures/videos and enjoy their antics. We spent some time snorkeling then headed back to Cabo. The only downside was that it was not a sailing excursion as advertised. It was a very nice cat but we just motored.

We booked for sailing and snorkel cruise on 22nd dec 2017. The itinerary was to sailing across lands end, El Arco, pilican rock and then snorkelling at santa maria bay. We reached half an hour before the cruise and checked in on-time. When the cruise started they told us that the sea is rough and hence can not take us to the santa maria for snorkelling. And instead they will snorkel at pelican rock. I had chosen this ONLY to snorkel at santa maria because it is very safe to snorkel in that water. They did not inform this while checking in OR before the cruise had started. That was very UNprofessional. There were plenty of option if I wanted to snorkel at pelican rock but I chose this cruise because I wanted to snorkel at santa maria bay. I fell cheated since they did not inform us before hand about there plan. We could have rescheduled or cancelled had we been informed before hand or at the time of checking in. They did add whale watching to compensate though but I was never interested in whale watching anyway.

This trip is NOT as advertised! There is no sailing involved and it is certainly not a catamarran. This is a double-decker party boat with VERY loud music and a louder master of ceremonies. Please be warned that this is in no way relaxing or comfortable. People were very drunk and got more drunk as the hours passed.....lots of groping and grinding. So if you like the party boat experience, then you will have fun. But if you think you will be on a beautiful sailing vessel like the one pictured....or any type of sailing vessel, think again.
