Just came from the dock and had to write a review. We were looking to go with another operator but they only had the giant boats available and they took us to this company's dockside shack. The tour was 50 Pesos dearer than the larger boats and worth every Peso! The boat has a spacious inside cabin and above that... More

The instantly confirmed and everything went smoothly. The tour was very nice! The boat was small enough to get close to the islands and we also made a walk on one of... More

Went on this tour as the Tres Marais tour company recommended by LP was shut - actually most of the huts were shut apart from this one so we booked with them. It was a good decision - the tour was very good and felt almost personal with not just the standard services of seeing the wild life and lovely... More
