We used King David for our Airport Transfer and were met promptly at the airport and escorted to out shuttle. We were the only couple and had the van to ourselves1 The driver was friendly and courteous and we were greeted with the same service during our later return to the airport.

This tour was the best that we went on, they depart at the commercial docks where the cruise ships will return to Mazatlan in 2014. Upon departure you view the Pacifico Brewery and the shrimp fleet vessels. You travel quite a distance to the mangroves, but along the way you view small commercial shrimp and fishing adventures throwing nets into the water from small boats, they are always surrounded by large birds as they float waiting for a meal of the throwaways. The mangroves produce a small variety of birds and no alligators as experienced in Costa Rica, you arrive at the destination and after a short pit stop and fresh raw shrimp in lime juice appie you proceed to the beach via a tractor driven wagon.
The beach is ABOSLUTELY VACANT of humans and pristine, we walked for an hour and only came upon one person, a fisherman on a motorbike WAY in the distance, eventually we got together and it was fascinating, he would park and sneak into the surf, cast his net and caught a lot of fish. We followed him down the beach to his next stop after we turned to go back, he repeated the task and caught a lot of fish again. We did a video of him feeding the birds that followed him everywhere, we assisted in shoooing the birds away as I attempted to photo his latest catch.
After being on the beach for about an hour, we return to the landing point where they have prepared your choice of lunch, grilled fish or shrimp on coconut husks, there is a combo option as well, apparently this is a regional thing and can't be copied, the meal was delicious as the charcoal gave it a unique flavour. The dessert is coconut cookies and out of this world, they provide the recipe and sell a mound of deliciousness for 10 peso.
The return trip was accented with our mascot pelican the that visited us earlier, they pose and beg for fish supplied by the tour. Great photo op as they aren't afraid, it got really frenzied when more pelicans arrived and butted in. One pelican perched on top of the canopy and stretched it's neck down to get fed, it was really funny. Had a great time, well worth the money.

A lot of fun. Polo (the guide) is great. Be warned it is a long ride out and back and young kids might be bored.

This could be renamed the King David harbor/estuary/farm/beach tour. After passing the shrimp fleet in the harbor, the boat heads up the estuary, which becomes progressively more interesting as the channel narrows. You eventually dock at the coconut plantation, where the guide explains the details of raising coconuts and other tropical fruits such as arrayanes. A tractor then pulls a wagon loaded with visitors to the beach, where you spend an hour or so.
There are restroom facilities both on the boat and at the coconut plantation. The lunch at about 2 pm was very good, with local "smoked" bbq fish.

WARNING: We went on this tour in February, and it was quite chilly out on the water. I brought a jacket, but some visitors were frozen by the end of the boat ride.

It's more of an eco tour, than jungle, very enjoyable with a great English speaking guide, humour thrown in as well, and a BANIO on the boat !!!!!!!!....Had a great lunch, we ordered the combination, but if we went again, the smoked fish is wonderful. Saw lots of birds, and thankfully no snakes or alligators , apparently they are there !!! Would do it again.
