Did this tour a few years ago - catamaran sailing to the island. Beach volleyball, sea kayaking, banana boats and snorkeling. Crew prepares a mexican lunch on shore. All you can eat and drink for about $35.00 canadian. How can you go wrong?

My mom and I decided to visit one of the Islands on our trip to Mazatlan and ended up going with Deer Island. We got picked up at the hotel we stayed at, the El Cid Marina in the morning, around 9:30 and we returned around 2:30. The crew of 3 took us all around the coastline with drinks and great music along with information about the city as we sailed around. It was so relaxing and really beautiful- plus the people on the tour with us were great- by the time we got to the Island we all were close friends. I only did the banana boat which was really fun but I should have done the snorkeling and Kayaking as well. It was a great tour- a wonderful day for adults and kids! We were free to relax, sunbath or do the activities. plus they gave you a delicious lunch!

There really is not much here but the beach is nice and it is usually calm waters. Mazatlan is not known for snorkeling but there are fish to see. If you want to snorkel you need to go to Cancun or the Caribbean.
