Full description
Begin your magical tour with pick-up from the lobby of your hotel in Huatulco Bay. Set off for the main bay at Santa Cruz and board the boat in the dock which will host all the fun. On the journey, be delighted with the views of the sea, vegetation, sand, color, and stillness of the waters. Arrive at Chachacual Bay, which an underwater park which belongs to the Huatulco National Park Protected Natural Area. Stop here to practice your snorkeling and get to know the coral reef and marine species. After this, continue the boat tour and admire the beautiful panoramic views. Witness natural formations such as the Bufadero stone face known as the Mixteco Face and an island shaped like a turtle. Then, the captain will take the boat out to sea so you can keep your eyes peeled for other marine species such as dolphin, manta ray, and different species of turtles and birds. Later, move to Maguey Bay to go down once more, swim and enjoy a delicious meal based on seafood. Enjoy the specialties such as fish to size, stuffed pineapple, shrimps, lobster with butter, among others. The approximate stay time to enjoy this beach is 2 hours before starting the return trip. To end this great experience, return to the boat to take some pictures. Continue relaxing with the sea breeze until you reach the Santa Cruz dock, where the units will be waiting to transfer you to your respective hotels.

We really enjoyed the day, we only wished we had known we had to rent a life jacket and flippers, we had brought 500 pesos for lunch and we needed 300 pesos to rent the life jacket and flippers, if we had known everything would have been prefect, we used our VISA for lunch, where we had more cash in the safe at the hotel.

Very nice guy hosting the experience. Professional crew. The coast line is beautiful and dramatic worth it for that. The snorkling was okay. I had never seen a reef. Only draw back was lunch where we paid a lot more for food than back at Huatulco. I would choose one without lunch next time.

The crew and the team are very friendly but it is too touristy a tour, you do not see the total of the 7 bays and they take you where there is business for them, they almost "force" you to eat in the restaurant that they have an agreement with. For the price you pay the boat ride and the bath is fine, without more.
