Such a beautiful trip. Crew were very good, very attentive with the drinks. Very patient, even with the couple that drank nonstop. Guy must have had 12 beers, we were just waiting for him to go overboard. Picked up in nice air conditioned bus, kudos to the driver for negotiating that narrow road to the dock. Nice size catamaran, thought I’d was gonna be overcrowded but sitting or reclining on the trampoline was perfect for my sore back. Crew were great keeping drinks flowing and providing commentary on the sights. Saw whales out around the islands. Decent meal of chicken and veggie skewers. Pretty good value, highly recommended.

Hola Softball nut! Thank you for your kind words! We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves. Indeed, some people can handle quite a few beers without a problem; our crew is always on top of things to make sure that no person is a danger to themselves or others. They watch carefully; safety first! We hope you return sailing with us next year! Best Regards to You and Yours, The Picante Crew

Went to Ixtapa and did the snorkel boat tour and it was amazing with our group of 6. The staff are so friendly and helpful the whole time. They tried so hard to get the spinnaker working for everyone however the wind wouldn’t cooperate so they switched it up and offered us the netting behind the boat. Food was excellent, drinks were plentiful and music was good! Highly recommended.

Hola, Setter_11! Thank you for taking time to post your review, and for your understanding that as much as we would love to, we simply cannot control the wind... Our crew does work hard to ensure everyone has a great time, no matter what the wind decides! We hope to see you on board sailing with us again soon! Best Regards to You and Yours, The Picante Crew

We did two trips on the Picante during our recent stay in Zihuatanejo - Whale Watching and Snorkeling/Spinnaker. The trips were a highlight of our vacation! We can’t say enough about the enthusiastic, fun crew. They go above and beyond to make sure your experience is top notch. If you like adventure, the Spinnaker flying is unbelievable and an experience not to be missed!

If I wasn't heading home today, I would go again. Good size cat, lots of room to move around. Lively crew, very entertaining, and service oriented. Mix of music, drinks aplenty (if you are so inclined), a very decent dinner, wind, waves, and a gorgeous sunset! By far the very best tour we have been on this week! Just one note for those who might get queazy...it is a big ocean out there, and it is not always smooth. But we love that sort of stuff!!

My wife and I booked this tour thru Sunwing Vacations ( Magical Sunset Cruise). The crew of the Picante were amazingly fun and provided a great service and tour. Our tour package included drinks and a meal, transportation from and back to our hotel in Ixtapa. Total length of the tour 4hrs, 2.5hrs spent on the water. We sailed on a fairly calm sea. The crew was very knowledgeable of the local area and history. Drinks and our meal were good. Such an enjoyable way to spend the last night of our vacation. We saw a Humpback whale with her calf. We sailed fm Zihautanejo harbour out past the Hotel strip in Ixtapa and back to Zihautanejo.
