“The taxi alternative”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

These guys appeared a few years back as an alternative to the blue line, running between Mogan & Arguineguin. They brought a bit of much needed competition & the prices have dropped as a result (identical for both lines).
It's a great trip with either company, as you chug along the coastline, giving a different view of the rugged shore. The boats are fairly basic, the glass bottom a bit of a take-on (you'll see more over the side), and for a family trip, a taxi would be cheaper

“Relaxing Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We visited Mogan and decided to get the boat back to Peurto Rico as opposed to the bus . Cost 12 euros and takes about half an hour . Lovely trip and a great way of getting some pictures of the coastline . They also sell drinks on board . No dolphins to see , this is just a water taxi , very relaxing trip and alot more scenic than the motorway

“Total con”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We went on the "dolphin trip" it as advertised as 1 hour in the dolphin zone.
This is a lie we were taken a short distance out to sea and then striaght back in again. No where near the dolphin zone.
The crew never spoke a word to anybody onboard not even a safety briefing they spent the whole chating to each other. Very rude.
This was a total waste of money.
I recomend you avoid this company and take a proper dolphin trip.
People at our hotel took proper trip and saw loads of dolphins.

“Good for transport, not for dolphins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

This is a good and reasonable way to travel between the ports on the south-west coast. The "glass bottom" is, however, a joke as it is a small window that only allow you to see turbulent water and if you are lucky enough to encounter any sea creatures, they would pass the small window so quickly that you could hardly see anything. We waited an extra 45 minutes to take the twice-a-day trip towards the dolphin area. It was a nice trip, but there was no time to search for dolphins within the time schedule and we recommend to rather take a dedicated trip to see them.

“No dolphins”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2012

Twice a day (at 10.30 and 12.30) one can book a detour through the dolphin zone, for the same fare as the regular ferry service from Puerto Rico to Puerto Mogan. If you have the time, take the detour, but don't expect to see dolphins, as they are usually much further out. The advertised "glass bottom ferry" is not used for this detour; this boat has a few windows downstairs but I'd recommend sitting on deck and watch out for the flying fish. The trip takes 45-60 mins and you can either take a bus or a ferry to return.
