So the tour is not what I expected it to be, but I loved it and would highly recommend to everyone, children and adults alike.

Basically, a group of 10 hilarious people got together to put on a great show and entertain tourists. Yes, you get to go see Marietas Islands, which is pretty neat. However, the water is a bit too murky to snorkel, the sights aren't that amazing it's basically a rock..., and you no longer get to swim under the rocks to get to the hidden beach the beach is now protected. All that said, none of it really matters because that is not the purpose of the tour. Neither is the bird watching or whale watching, especially since I don't think Keven the head guide knows much about whales or birds.

Instead, you get to spend 4 hours hanging out with a really cool crew. They entertain, make everyone laugh, put on a great show, and keep an open bar where they pour you strong drinks. At some point, everyone loosens up and starts to dance, and that's when the good times really start to roll.

If it wasn't for the crew, this trip would get 2 stars. I'm giving it 5, and you will too!

Kevin and the crew on boat 5 were excellent and very happy to help in any way they could. The water was crystal clear and so warm. So many different types of fish to see. Even saw a few dolphins on the way back.Kevin did a great job explaining the birds and showing us around. Would definitely do this again. The entertainment on the way back kept us in stitches laughing. Don't know where the crew gets their energy.

This was an unbelivable experience. While the actual excursion was a lot of fun, the staff made the trip...I have never been so impressed by this level of service. Food was good, drinks were great, staff was on top of everything and very knowledgeable and it was a very well planned trip. The only downside, which has nothing to do with the company, was that they closed off touring of the beach on the island, but that was a governmental decision, so nothing could be done. I still highly recommend the experience.

Even though we did not get to see the hidden beach, this trip was SO MUCH FUN!!! Between the snorkeling, kayaking, and paddle boarding, and bird watching, there was more than enough to do. Top that off with a nice lunch, awesome crew, the open bar, and the fantastic show the crew members put on during the trip back to shore, this is a day of fun the whole family will enjoy and remember for years to come!

I went to this trip on a Thursday and it was amazing. I took my aunt my 3yr old niece and grandma! The crew was very sweet and took well care of my grandma always made sure she was okay. Given she wasn and #39;t able to snorkel paddle board or kayak she still had a great time with the show drinks and food.

Great tour. Lots to do and experience. Beautiful scenery. The crew was great. Very attentive and entertaining. The only disappointment was that the beach area was closed and we were not able to spend time on the beach. We met great people and had a fun day. Our ages ranged from 5 - 66 and we all had a great time. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour. We were on Boat 5 and the crew couldn and #39;t have been nicer and more entertaining. Great pictures and we were out on the water just enough to have a good time and then get back to PV.
