What people are saying about Huatulco

It was an amazingly fun full day! We were picked up later than described in trip description, but was made up at end of day. Captain and assistant were very attentive, informative and enthusiastic. They played music to our request. Cruised to several of the bays, snorkeled as much as we wanted , swam as much as we wanted and were taken to a beach for a beachside lunch. Captain took us to an area for dolphin watching and kept the beer flowing! We were allowed to take food of our own as well for snacks throughout the day. It really was a very fun day.. If ever I return to Huatulco, I’ll be booking this again! Maybe even a sunset cruise, if available. Keep up the good work!

Comfortable boat that held a lot of people but we were only 17 . Got the opportunity to see a killer whale and her baby. Ride lovely and meal on beach good. Snorkeling was awesome!

So much fun. Our guides and driver were delightful. Went above and beyond to make it a very fun day. Highly recommend. Cheers!
