We were recommended to choose MAXICAT 5h boat trip instead of a regular big boat 5h trip. Travel advisor claimed that MAXICAT will have less people on the board thus it will be nicer. Eventually we were surprised that the boat that can fit 104...More

We took the 5 hour trip and it felt like forever. Swimming at Los Gigantes was definitely the best and only thing worth the money. The water was so clear and blue... Just awesome. The food is not great but decent and the staff is...More

The 3 hour trip stops for swimming, but not snorkelling, although if you took your own snorkel that would be fine. I think the 5 hour trip lets you snorkel, but unsure about water sports.
