Ricardo the captain is personable, knowledgeable about the wildlife and history. Chris the first mate makes a mean Margarita which is included in the price. Kayaking was not offered not sure why not. Maybe because there was just two couples on board. Only two of us snorkelled. Snorkelling was great. The catamaran was clean. We motored around. Sails are in order. Lunch is a ham and cheese sandwich which seems to be the standard lunch on tours here. We saw sting rays from the boat. A pod of dolphins raced with us at the bow. Live that.

Wonderful sailor and snorkeling trip for family of 15 (3 generations)! Diana and Chalio were fantastic guides and friendly hosts. We swam with dolphins, snorkeled at Honeymoon Cove, ate some delicious snacks, and drank some delicious margaritas. To top it off, we watched several whales breaching on the way back to the marina!

Great trip. Lovely clean boat. Fun and knowledgeable crew. Nice food and drinks. Lots of dolphins!!!! Lovely bays for snorkeling & swimming. Good music. All round a super fun day.

excellent hike, just consider if some skill is required to climb stepping on rocks and scaling small walls.
