Snorkeling, swimming and beach combing are the orders of the day. Set sail and keep watch for whales (in season), dolphin, sea turtles and mantra rays. Party back to the bay with a magnificent spinnaker run and anchor in front of Playa La Ropa for a ride on our 2400' spinnaker (wind permitting!). Open bar and lunch are provided. « less

This cruise was the best time our group of six had since we arrived at ixtapa. The crew, especially Sergio (remember us? Arrrrlinda?) were soooo much fun. The sights were spectacular, the people on our side of the boat were amazing and fun and the staff, well, we could have taken you all home with us if we could. So... More

What an amazing water tour of the beautiful Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa shorelines. Thank you so much captain for the history lesson and the rocks were much more amazing close up. There are no words to describe the beauty of the perfect sunset and to top it all off seeing the whales on the way back to Zihuatanejo. Thank you, thank... More

I can't think of a better or more beautiful way to see this amazing coastline than the sunset cruise on Picante. The catamaran is absolutely majestic as it silently leaves Zihuatanejo Bay for open water while Captain Tony describes both the history and nature all around. The crew are both attentive and fun and the music makes for both a... More

Six of us sailed on the Picante on January 15 and had a wonderful time. The captain was charming and the staff was friendly and efficient and made sure we enjoyed the cruise. Great food and drinks. They synchronized the music with the sunset, which drew a round of applause. Would definitely go again!

We had a wonderful time on a snorkel sailing this time. The staff are a lot of fun and definitely take care of the visitors. Drinks are free flowing. A couple of us rented snorkel gear from the boat. Surprisingly, the quality of the equipment was quite good. We had a perfect day of snorkeling and partying on the boat!

The captain and 2 deck hands are very fun and make you feel safe when venturing out to snorkel or sail. The bar is open and they can make most drinks. The food was "ok" - dry sandwich and some fruit, chips, salsa and guac. We went during the low season so they only sail on Thursdays. We had less... More

Hola msalice72! Thanks for posting your great review! We did note what you said about the 'dry' sandwich - we will make sure everyone knows about the condiments - maybe placing them in a more obvious place. All comments are always appreciated and help us to better our service! Thank you again! We hope to see you on board the... More

Great Sunset cruise with open bar, appetizer type meal, and tour guide, which does a great job of pointing out the lay of the land, great places to explore, and the history of the area. Definitely recommend doing this at the beginning of your vacation.

Very friendly staff, breakfast and unlimited drinks provided. Not much marine life was seen, captain was more concerned people got to swim than see whales.

Hi Vic2164, Thank you for noting about our friendly staff, as they do work very hard to try and please everyone. Unfortunately you came out on a day when the sealife was hiding; that does happen on occasion, and of course, we have no control of that. When that happens, the captain puts his best hat on and looks for... More

We had an absolute blast on the Picante Catamaran!! The entire experience was a 10.

A very relaxing sail aboard a very clean and well maintained boat. Captain Tony, an expat from NY, loves what he does, cares for the sea and the life in and above it.
