“Disappointing!”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We bough the sighting whales in Puerto Vallarta with Googler.
They ask you to arrive at 9:00 am because the departure is at 9:30. The ship arrived at 10:40!!!!
You can not do anything about it because every time I tried to complain they asked me mmm... it´s late do not worry they´re coming!!! It must be a joke, no apologies no excuses. The ship is completely different of what they promised.
They also sell the idea that it will be an airplane monitoring the best sighting place, false as soon as they watch other ships we went to them and followed the same two whales for the three hours!!
we were lucky enough to watched the whales jumping amaizing!!! but please careful about Googler service.

“Fun!!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The crew was amazing!!! Had a blast on the boat and at the beach and the crew interacted with us. Lots of dancing and open bar. Snorkeling was short but good. Lunch on the island was great too! Would definitely do this again! Great price for lots of fun!!!!!

“Fun!”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

My friends and I greatly enjoyed this excursion. The tour guides were fun and kept us entertained the entire time. They were easy to get along with and even joined in on the fun.

The only downfall was not having very much time to snorkel because we left shore an hour late.

Overall, though, it was worth the $20. We went snorkeling, got unlimited drinks on the boat, got to hike to a gorgeous waterfall or sit on the beach and received a free meal. We also had a girls competition and dance party on the way back. It was a blast! There were just enough people on the boat to make friends too!

I would recommend to everyone! Definitely worth it!

“Nice..”
Reviewed January 17, 2012

Actually won this excursion for the day. The staff works "extremely" hard to get the everybody involved. Started slow, but improved while it went on. The destination is nothing special, but it does have a decent beach to lounge around in the afternoon, with a few activities you could do. Our cruise was predominately mexican families, and we had a great time with several of them on the way back. They do get the games and music cranked up, but it was fun.

Reviewed July 31, 2011

sold on one thing a was delivered this cruise. It is strictly for Mexican tourists. I was the single american and ended up getting accosted at the end of the ride and someone purposely burned me with their cigarette. This trip ruined my entire vacation.
