We did jolly pirates in the morning as a family activity. Although we are all adults, there were children on board all of which seemed to be having as good a time as the adults. Our first stop was the wreck "Antilla" a WWII era shipwreck laying in about 60' of water. It is a little bit much for the... More

Me and my cousin went on the Jolly Pirates and we loved it! We received the VIP treatment. The drinks were served in a consistent matter, (the "pirate poison" was deliscious) the Snorkeling gear was in perfect condition, the Snorkeling spots were magnificent and the crew attended and helped us all the way. A big thank you to Julio, the... More

We sailed up to Malmok Beach to play on the rope swing, enjoyed drinks while watching the sunset and then danced on the "VIP deck" while sailing back to dock. It was so relaxing, and a great way to finish our trip.

Jolly being the prime word. I had a blast on the ship with the crew. It was a beautiful Monday afternoon. The snorkel spots were great and the water was clear. There was always someone in the water supervising for those who weren't strong swimmers. Rob, Daniel and the boys were a bunch of fun. Great drinks and awesome jumping... More

Went on the afternoon snorkel with my wife and 2 young kids. We thought it was going to be more of a "family" atmosphere rather than a "booze cruise", but we did not mind and all the people on the tour were great and very respectful. My kids were the only 2 on the whole boat! I guess it's possible... More

I just took the sunset cruise last week. Cruise was 2 hours, 29.00 US, and it was very nice. For the most part you cruise up the coast then park out in the water so some of those who want to can swing off the boat into the water. You could drink all you wanted, music was great, there is... More

Unfortunately, our trip started off with a little rain and finally cleared up. We went on the morning snorkel trip. The crew was awesome. We did 3 stops. A shipwreck and 2 rock / reefs. The conditions were kinda calm, but not super clear, as I was expecting. The pirate swing was super fun at the end of the trip.... More
