Spectacular, and so much fun!

Beautiful views, open bar, 3 levels of different entertainment! Not a party booze cruise though, just locals and mostly Mexican tourist having a fun, it was perfect. Don’t expect staff at the kiosk or on the boat to explain things to you in English, enjoy the chance to practice your Spanish - though you will still have a blast even without understanding exactly what’s going on! Book at least a day in advance. I booked the same afternoon, and only just got on the boat 5 mins before departure as the office at the ward had not received (or checked with GYG) the tickets, I brought the print out of my voucher but The lady in the kiosk looked like she’d never seen one before. Still, I caught the boat just on time!

Girl Guides meet baby turtles!

We were a group of 12 so had a private tour. Rudy and Poncho were fantastic guides from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, they went out of their way to make sure that we were able to release baby turtles even though we were not there at the peak time of year. Visiting the market and seeing all the fruits was a bonus. All in all it was a brilliant introduction not just to Acapulco but to Mexico. Highly recommended!

I loved everything about this tour I released a baby turtle that I named into the ocean and I also really enjoyed the jungle boat ride and the fantastic fish dinner I had made by a wonderful Mexican cook and then to relax and a hammock and drink some fresh coconut milk what an excellent day be sure to try this tour you will not forget it.

perfect way to experience Acapulco in a small group. As we were only a party of 6, wishes and reroutings of our tour could be handled more generoulsy. Thanks again for the adjustment to see the cliffdivers on top of seeing the baby turtles. We had a wonderful day.

great experience ! so fun ! highly recommend ! open bar!
