fun day on the beach
Aug 2021 • Family
The ride going to the snorkeling was calm after snorkeling they started serving alcohol drinks and people loosened up a little bit. My favorite part was the beach we went horseback riding. They served good food and excellent drinks.
Going back felt like we were all family the staff was very attentive and interactive, Adrian made the booking for activities easy, although there was limited spots.

Very bad
Jul 2021 • Couples
To start the person in charge didn't show up till an hour and a half late, it was to start at 10 am and started at 11:30. The bathrooms did not flush and you had to go outside the bathroom and scoop some water with a plastic container to flush. I have never had this type of experience before. When we got to the beach, the lunch didn't start till 4:00 pm. It was so bad that I decided to take a water taxi at the Animas beach back to my condo. The boat name was the sarape ( my worst experience,they need to remodel the boat).

Worst day of our trip
Please do yourself a favor and skip this excursion. We had the worst time. If you do not speak Spanish, they do the worst job at explaining what the heck is going on. If you choose not to go to do the waterfall they literally dump you out on the beach at los animas for 3 hours where the lunch they give you is inedible. The restaurant they have you eat at will price gouge you to death. $4usd or $80 pesos for a bottle of water is crazy. The bathrooms have no toilet paper or a seat, trash everywhere. Not organized well and felt like it was a total money grab the whole time.

you have to improve
May 2021
you should hired people who speak better english if you are looking for american tourists, it was terrible for my and my wife not to understand what was the mc explained, he never shared information about snorkeling or the beach or the village, i just remember something about promotion to buy chips or some pills over and over, ¿is this what you call tourist company? or ¿flea market? nothing that i and my wife were looking, these guys operate asking tips, first for all the crew and secondly for the bartender i never heard something so ridiculous. road to the waterfall never saw any sailor, the fotographer was with me and with my wife all the time he tell me the story of quimixto, gave us very important information about the people from the village.

TERRIBLE
Apr 2021 • Friends
Misrepresented the amount of time of the tour causing us to miss an evening event. Staff very nice and accommodating. Check in process totally ridiculous requiring 4 different check points just to get on the boat which left late. Worst bar ever. Avoid this excursion at all costs.

Irritating Day!
Day started with finding out Yelapa was closed for the day which is what we booked. Also different leave times from various people. 9:20, 9,30,10:00am. Finally we left about 10:10. Los Arcos was what they changed our reservation to with no other choices! We were open minded and said fine.
The ride to Arcos was okay but they went along the bay right aside PVR but not information from someone like a tour guide. I have been coming to PVR for about 40 years and I know a lot of history about the city but I still like hearing about it.
During the boat ride they kept picking up passengers from the water taxi so that slowed down the arrival time to Arcos. This wasn’t just once but three different times.
Finally we arrived and it was time for snorkeling. We’ll, my wife had never been snorkeling and wasn’t sure what to do. The whole time during the bias ride there the MC mostly spoke in Spanish. I know I am in Mexico and it’s their county and language but we almost felt like they were discriminating us? The things they announced in English was very short and difficult to catch because it would be said after minutes of Spanish. Needless to say we were left to figure things out.
The next step was to get masks and snorkels which again, we had to figure out. Also to put on life jackets and how. Now this, I know I never herd because I was watching the MC and paying close attention. All he ever said was put on the mask after you get in the water.....in English!
So my wife and I get in the water and no one is around, everyone else had gone the the area of snorkeling and I try to help her. We swim to the side of the boat from the back and she gets scared and starts hyperventilating. She is now holding onto a tire on the side of the boat and yelling for help but the employees can’t hear her because the music on the boat is still so load from before. I finally reach her and help her and we get back on the boat. The whole time the crew had no idea what happened and when I explained, the crew member I told acted like he really didn’t care.
The remainder of the afternoon was more of the same. Treating us like we were outcasts and some racism.
It got worse on the back along with incredibly loud music for passengers to get drunk. The more the passengers got drunk, the louder people talked and acted stupid.
Definitely a day tour for younger people! A irritating day for my wife and I and rudeness from the crew.
I could write more but in a nut shell, this is the main ideas.

You get what you pay for
Aug 2020 • Couples
Everything was done as advertised, but logistically there was long waits to get on and off the boat. Breakfast was below poor quality (should bring your own snacks), lunch was average but you will have to wait for it until 3pm. The open bar drinks on the boat were watered down, but the drinks on animas beach were good. The highlights are snorkeling at the arco and the beach at animas. Bottomline you get what you pay for. Not a bad value for a day trip.

Great Trip
Aug 2020
We had a wonderful trip. The view was lovely and we enjoyed snorkeling around los arcos. We were a little disappointed that we had to wear life vest while snorkeling and we weren't given fins. But Las animas beach was wonderful, so calm and not many tourist. And lunch was wonderful. (you have to pay for all your drinks on the beach) and our trip back to the marina was very entertaining, we loved the tour guides!
