Over priced for a little ride under power the whole way. Lite diner is an understatement. You better eat before you leave. Strange the boat is flying a U.S.A. flag. Drink lots to get your monies worth.

Hola Nanaimo Crow, We are very sad that you did not enjoy yourselves. I do want to address three things that you said: "Lite dinner": It seems that you have been mislead, as we advertise ONLY LITE SNACKS on board the sunset cruise.

The cost of $79US per person was well worth it. We went snorkeling in Manzanillo, the fish were amazing. Then off to Playa Las Gatas and Playa La Ropa for some beautiful views and nice swimming. Hats off to the Captain and crew for a great trip. All you can eat and drink too.

I would never come to Zihu without doing the Picante sunset cruise. I am not a huge fan of boats but I felt very safe on this beautiful, well maintained large catamaran. Drinks flow freely (word of advise - pace yourself). Great music, great service from staff and a very tasty snack/light meal - chicken kabobs, rice, guacamole & chips.... More

We took the day tour on the catamaran from Zihuatanejo yesterday. It was an amazing day. The Picante crew were extremely attentive and professional. We were served a beautiful fresh lunch, and there was lots of cold beer, wine & mixed drinks. The views of the shoreline and Ocean were just beautiful. Although on the pricy side in comparison to...

Nice catamaran sunset trip. Boat was not too crowded and the service was very good. Boat travelled far out and circled around the big rocks in the ocean which was nice. The van ride to/from the boat dock takes a long time, especially when you have to pick up other guests, so you may want to consider a taxi. I... More

Our sailing excursion on the Picante was the highlight of our activities in Zihuantanejo! The vessel was perfect and the staff so friendly and attentive. The snorkeling spot was beautiful and provided us with a vast area to explore. Lunch was satisfying, and the funnest part was spinnaker flying - an unexpected thrill!

What a great way to spend a few hours out on the water. Picante is a 75 foot (37' wide) Catamaran that comfortably carry's 30 - 40 people.
