Went on the Acarey last night with 13 friends and meet another large group headed by Acachica. We all had a wonderful time. The cruise is 310 peso if you walk right up to the window. We meet a great guy who took good care of us with a group rate. The sunset cruise is from 4:30 to 7pm. You... More

The Acarey sunset boat cruise was very enjoyable last year I wanted to go again this year. I was very familiar with the location so I decided to take the bus to the Zocalo and buy my ticket at the port just across from the Zocalo. Tickets are 310 pesos. It includes open bar and a live band with dancing.... More

This cruise is spectacular! The boat itself has three levels. I have to say that the top floor is the best view of the ocean. The staff brings you free drinks on all three levels. You get to see Acapulco from the ocean, look at current/former celebrity homes, and la Quebrada as well. After sunset, the staff puts together a... More

This cruise was so much fun! We went out around 4:30pm and returned around 7pm. There was music, lots of people dancing, drinks & snacks. Included in the fun was the sights - the coastline with all the resorts, the vacation homes of the rich & famous with narration giving the names of the owners.

Was the best choice we made to see the sunset on the Acarey. We booked through the Sunwing Rep at our hotel last minute. It cost us $32.00 US which included return transportation by van. Really enjoyed. It included drinks, dancing with a 3 piece band. The boat goes along Acapulco Bay where you view up close the hotels along... More

Really a great value if you drink. Unlimited simple mixed drinks or beer for 2-3 hours. Good spanish music, and even a floor show. Very challenging to dance on a moving boat in open ocean. Sunset time gets you to quebrada near sunset. Daylight bay tour, and wonderful cliff views of large homes including Lee Trevino's home. Line up a... More

2 or 3 cruises daily. do the day one first for pictures of the mansions hanging on the hills. Then consider a night one for dancing and entertainment. Only about $16 US. Cheap drinks but as many as you can manage...

This cruise was recommended by someone at our hotel. It takes you from the historical part of the city all along the coast with all the hotels and passed luxury homes owned by famous people. It continues out to the Roqueta Island and beyond to see the area where the Acapulco divers perform (but it does not include a performance.)... More
