Me and my family with kids of age 9, 7 and 4 years old did this tour on our first visit to cancun, and it was great. The kids have fun. Me and my 9 year old did the snorkeling. The lunch was great, the beach too and we take pictures with a shark (this is extra). Great aventure.Reviewed by: canimalien, August 2013
Had a blast. Loved the time spent snorkeling. Don't like the vendors barking at us as soon as we got on the dock, and followed us almost to the boat upon our return. We couldn't even enjoy the beach without the vendors hounding us to buy stuf. It would be better if the tour had a 'private' spot for the groups to sit out and enjoy the ocean while waiting to get back on the boat.Reviewed by: CANCUN TOURS, July 2013
If you enjoy being on the cruise with booz and music then this is the tour you need to go for! its' a small cruise consisting of around 15 people and 3-4 tour guides. They keep you entertained throughout the tour with drinks and music. The ride to the island is around 1.5 hours and then you spend time on the island to shop or to look around. They make a stop at a beach resort where we can have lunch buffet and also relax for some time. If you are going with kids, I won't recommend this tour. It's mostly for adults. snorkeling was fun too.Reviewed by: Manjiri J, December 2013
Great crew! The included lunch was okay... we were looking forward to chicken fajitas, rice, and beans but instead it was a small buffet with other stuff (more fish than chicken). Bring money to the island because no drinks are included with lunch. Not even water... We had lots of fun while sailing, especially swinging out over the ocean. There aren't any "trampolines" or netted areas on this boat, even though they are in a couple of the pictures. The number of passengers is smaller than some of the other catamaran which works out nicely because you get to know the crew and vice-versa.Reviewed by: LuAnn L, September 2013
Save your money, save your day! Do not book from here. This trip could have been great, but many things went wrong-
-Pickup is not from "your" Cancun hotel, it is from "a hotel in Cancun". The boat leaves from Cancun bay Resort. Your have to arrange your own transportation till here. (no big deal)
-We were asked to arrive by 9:30AM, for 10AM departure. Our boat didnt leave until 11
-The day was scorching hot, no shade onboard. They had a "basement"(where they were chopping bait fish to attract fish during snorkeling) but that place smelled like dead fish!
-Our group had 3 kids and 4 adults. The reservation was made well in advance.They didnt have kid size snorkel gear. No fins for any kids!
-The snorkel gear handed to us was was moldy and smelled filthy (literally!). My husband started feeling sick due to all the smell his hands picked up from holding that gear. We asked that the gear be cleaned before we put it on our face and in our mouth, all they did was washed it on ocean water. Which barely did anything to the smell. Hence, none of us snorkeled.From the whole boat, only one guy decided to enter in water, but he was also called back on boat within 10 minutes! (Remember the boat left 1 hour late, the time had to be made up!)
-Lunch buffet was a joke. Not kid-friendly, no fruits, no vegetarian options. There were three sections in the buffet, the section reserved for our boat was the one with least options. (oh btw you should know drinks werent included in the buffet, not even water)
-Then came the island downtown. Again we were only give 1 hour to roam around the island, barely enough to do anything. We wanted to rent the golf cart, but didnt have enough time.
-After all this, we were still hopeful for spinnaker. It was new to our whole group and we were looking forward to it. But, the location/position/angle of our boat was such that the sail did not take off, not even once. Other trimaran boats were able to balloon up more than once and it seemed fun.
