Our resort booked our tour with Bula on 1/14/14 for a tour of Deer Island. We were picked up late by an open air cab with a driver that did not speak English. Even though we had a slip of paper from the resort confirming we had booked the tour, we almost were not allowed to come. Once we arrived... More

We went on the Bula about 10 years ago when we first started coming to Mazatlan. There was a nice group of 10 people and all of us had a wonderful time. They started off serving us a lovely fruit tray and offering assorted beverages. Great sail and smooth water! We anchored off Deer Island and spent several hours on... More

Toured on Bula 4 times, and I am going 3 more times, once each week, this next trip to Mazatlan. We sailed along with dolphins and jimmy buffet. The ceviche they made was excellent. Kayaks, snorkeling, sitting on the beach with open bar, cervezas y tequilla :)))

Had a good experience with Bula. We ended up being the only people scheduled for their Deer Island tour, but they ran it anyways. They dropped us off where we wanted for snorkeling and let us choose our activities. We also forgot to tell them we were vegetarians, but we didn't go hungry. They made us veggie sandwiches & had...

This is a great value and it's not so large a catamaran that you don't get personal attention. The crew is very accommodating and you'll LOVE Deer Island. This is a do not miss trip while in Mazatlan

It cost us about 40 dollars pp. plus tip for the entire tour, which included sailing, lunch, drinks and sea kayaks at the beach on Deer Island. A wonderful trip for anyone who is spending time in Mazatlan. Thnk you Captain Viktor!

Snorkeling was available, nice relaxing day. Open bar was great. Workers were fun to interact with. Full sail on the... More

Had a wonderful time out on the catamaran with Victor and the others. Smooth seas and a wonderful sail. The light lunch was OK..but the endless drinks were great. We were fortunate to be 2 gals with one other family of 3, so it wasn't too crowded. For the price, this is a great value and would recommend it to... More

We go on a sail where ever we travel, whether in the Pacific or Caribbean. This sail was one of or best. Our crew Victor & Manuel were great, since there were only five of us on board we got the royal treatment. From the time we hit open water to the time we returned, the sails were up and... More

What a fantastic trip with Bula Catamaran Tours! We were picked up right on time in an Arrega, a canopy covered pickup, with a family from Minnesota and taken to the Mazatlan Marina. Our driver led us down the pier to our Catamaran. We introduced ourselves to our captain, Victor, and first mate/bartender/cookie/all other hands Manuel. There were just the... More
