We took king David tours, provided through our resort. The boat ride was insanely long. We ended up having to wait 45 minutes in the marina for an oil tanker to come in. Then take the tour out around the light house and through the little bird islands/caves. Our "guide" didn't give much info about anything we were seeing in... More

Stone Island was an adventure! We went with a friends and ended up having a decent time, but it was a bit sketchy! The ride from the boat to the beach goes through town which is dirt roads and typical houses for the area... the beach was unfortunately dirty and less than pleasant due to the recent hurricanes. It is... More

Worst tour I have every taken. Stone Island beach is filthy. Full of seaweed and trash. Restaurant was outdoors and fly infested. Beer was warm and peddlers where all over us not taking no for an answer. We made them take us back to our resort and refund our money.

We took the Playa Sur excursion, enjoying the boat tour of the bay and our visit to Stone Island. Lunch was delicious, I had the freshly caught grilled fish, drinks included was awesome even if a little weak, and my husband rode a horse on the beach, something he had wanted to do. I enjoyed the vendors and bought several... More

My wife and I have cruised through Mazatlan three times. Two of the occasions we visited stone island. Getting there is easy and does not require a taxi. Just go out to the street turn left and walk about a half mile to a water taxi stand. The very inexpensive taxi will take you across the channel to stone island.... More

Loved the excursion to Stone Island! Fun boat tour, horseback riding and banana boat ride. My tour guide took care to translate for me and make sure I knew what I needed to know! Lunch was excellent and the drinks were plentiful!

You have to go here. Do it by tour or do it on your own. Take a taxi to the harbor, buy a round trip ticket ($1.25) on the little ferry boat. Get a waiting taxi to the beach and have a unbelievable day. UNBELIEVABLE. Went to Letty's this last time. Spent the whole day on a lounge with fresh... More

We purchased an excursion through Playa Sur. Polo, our guide, made sure we were well take care of the entire day. He provided information in both English and Spanish. We were disappointed with a couple of things (no snorkeling and seals), but we understood that the jelly fish were an issue with the snorkeling and the seals had migrated out... More

3 of us took the boat trip to Stone Island for the day. It was indeed fun and the food was great. We chose to ride the horses which is only a 10-15 minute ride on the smallest horses I have ever seen in my life. Still it was fun to ride on the beach. The other activity we did... More
