The secluded beach and water activities. Could have done without the machismo from the guides but everyone was super polite and nice.

We had the best day snorkel, cruise and beach day on the Marietas all day adventure! Absolutely loved the drinks, food and exceptionally courteous staff (also hilarious Mexican Rolling Stones show) Would give 10/5 stars if I could!

5+ stars! Fantastic experience that was so much fun. The snorkeling was excellent with options for 30 mins or an hour in the water depending on your wants. Food was great and the drinks were really good. Loved the beach destination with the banana boat. The entertainment on the way back was fun and just the right amount of silly. Would highly recommend!

Noisy and not worth the money.

Beware! You will not set foot on Marietas Islands or the hidden beach. The snorkeling and underwear views are mediocre at best. The crew found it necessary to play super loud, deafening music and get on the loud speaker nonstop. That was ANNOYING. I must say the second part of the tour, was a bit more pleasant. All in all, we made the best of it but it was not what I had expected at all.

Everything you could want in an excursion!

Where do I begin? We saw so many humpbacks we lost count, blue footed boobies were everywhere! We snorkeled with beautiful tropical fish, we went to the fancy beach right next to where the film bachelor in paradise where we kayaked and enjoyed drinks, dolphins joined us on the way back jumping in our wake as our tour guides gave us drinks and surprised us with a costumed 80’s rock lip sync show. We couldn’t have asked for more! If you only do one excursion while you are here like we did, make it this one!

We really enjoyed our tour of the Marianas islands yesterday. The weather was great, and dolphins and whales made an appearance. But the best part was the crew. They made sure we had a great time. They sang, they danced, they provided good food and beverages, and were committed to giving everyone a great time.

Simply perfect day. Adults, 12 year old and, 7 year old all had a blast. The guide was a talented instructor, comedian/performer, and incredibly thoughtful person. Thank you to everyone who made the experience possible.

Fun filled day on the bay!

We were luckily aboard Boat 4 and the entire crew was amazing. Dante is a 'dreamboat' himself and his positive energy is infectious. We enjoyed all the activities to the fullest and our cheeks were sore from smiling all day. The private beach stop was a highlight for us and allowed our group to relax, swim and explore the adorable hidden treasure. Lunch was yummy, the open bar much appreciated and the happy vibe of the crew made for a perfect excursion.
