“Good but over crowded”
Review of Sagitarius Cat

Sagitarius Cat
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I have been on similar trips on other holidays. This was a good day out. Was fun the banana boat was great. and the stop at Morgan was a refreshing break. yet, not much to snorkel for no fish lurking around our stop .Our boat was over crowded many people had to sit in the walk ways, Also the promised boat trip to the caves was not delivered. Breakfast was sandwiches cheese or turkey ham. and they ran out 2 small quarters each.The buffet lunch was pasta in bolognas sauce.No other food options. Lots of drink to go around though. the jet ski's and parasailing was at additional cost for only 10mins ride . For the £45 euros I think we would have preferred the other option the AfriKat. This was a similar Catamaran cruse that limited its passengers to 35 people. when we were in Portugal we paid a fraction of the price for a similar excursion that had a barbecue on a secluded beach. yet this seems to be the going rate for Gran Canaria. So overall a good day out just Spoiled by over crowding and food option. Also the non delivery of the Cave trip on a smaller boat.

Friendly crew, saw dolphins! Good food, as much beer as you can drink. Paragliding, jet skiing reasonably priced, banana boat free.

First off, if you get the chance, go on this trip.

We paid 150 euros for 2 which included jet skiing, para sailing, banana boating, swimming by some caves, dolphin spotting and all food and drinks while on board. It was an absolute steal considering we'd paid 70 euros EACH in the south of France last year just to do some Jet Skiing.

It departs from Puerto Rico Marina, where there's a strip of boats and signs from other companies doing similar things such as whale and dolphin searching, fishing, etc. Just look for the Sagittarius Catamaran sign.

We were on-board and heading out at about 10:30, and you could help yourselves to drinks immediately Although we didn't really have much on the trip there was sangria, wine, water, and all kinds of soft drinks. They kept them in big cooler boxes that were dotted around the boat. People-wise It was quite full but we managed to get one of the beds on there which I'd highly recommend, as others who were forced to sit on the sides due to lack of seats looked a little worse for wear as the day went on.

The staff made an announcement at the beginning, it was a really nice gent (who i can't remember the name of, sorry!) who really made the trip what it was. He was funny and always had a smile on his face, and the way he spoke almost every language under the sun as fluently as his own was incredible. He explained the plan for the day and the do's and dont's (which there weren't very many of other than common sense), and regularly announced things of interest over the tannoy.

We were lucky enough to see loads of dolphins when we went, which is something they obviously can't always guarantee. So if you've got a good DSLR, take it. I managed to snap loads of quality photos of them. They really played up for the camera.

Next was Jet Skiing, where they took groups of us out off the main boat onto a smaller one and allowing us to get on the jet ski's very easily. I've only done Jet Skiing twice so as for whether they were actually good or not is beyond me. All i know is I got mine up to 35 mph on choppy water and the Mrs (and myself in all honesty) was a little apprehensive about going any faster, which the Jet Ski was blatantly very capable of doing. We opted to pay 10 euros to get some photos of us whilst on it which the smaller boat driver took with a decent DSLR with a zoom lens.

Once we'd all had a go, we headed back to the boat and had some lunch, which was pasta in a tomato based sauce and salad. It was really nice and welcomed as a nice summer meal.

After this we went to the caves where you could get out and swim in the brilliantly clear waters around there, where there were loads of fish beneath. It felt great to get in the cool water after being on the boat with the sun glaring down. Also at this point was the Banana Boating, which held about 9 or 10 people and was dragged by a jet ski.

It was also here where we did parasailng, which was an incredible experience. You can go on as a single, pair or threes. We went on together as two. Be warned though, you go REALLY high, so if you're massive afraid of heights i wouldn't do this. We loved it though.

After this we headed back to the marina, at which point it was about 3pm.

So all in all i'd definitely recommend this, just make sure you get on the boat asap and get a bed to lie on!

We booked this at the hotel, Raul the "owner" was at the pool side booking these trips. He said that the trip would take us to a blue lagoon for snorkelling and this is where the jet ski and para sailing would take place, and that the boat would not be crowded. We arrived at the quayside and had to wait for nearly an hour for the boat to arrive along with approx 90 other people. When we boarded our photo was taken and then it was trying to find somewhere to sit.
We sailed to just outside Puerto Mogan, not a blue lagoon, they then take you away from the boat for the jetski so no one can take photos, we thought that a photo may be taken by the staff. No such luck, so no memento of the experience. After spending €25 it is the least they can do
The photo on the leaflet shows the buffet as being self service but thats not what you get. The salad is scooped out of plastic buckets and the pasta is tasteless, the free drinks are out of a cooler box and they are not very good quality and cheap.
We did see 3 flying fish.
Would i go on this trip again No for €45 per head it is not worth it
Go on a glass bottom ferry and you will see at least the same and it will only cost € 10 return.
This trip is all about selling the jetski and parasailing
