I really enjoyed this tour. I did...

I really enjoyed this tour. I did this in August 2016. The guides were great - super friendly. I enjoyed the fresh ceviche they made on the way back. I would book with them again. The only two things that I would change is - it was difficult to find the Viator office - I had questions the night before - and the lunch - homemade ham and cheese sandwiches could have been something nicer for the price I paid. Other than that I say book it and do it!!

Excellent all around. I doubt there is a better option other than booking a private boat at a multiple of the price.
