Dock so you can head to the beach and visit the small village of Taboga. Spend time on the beach relaxing or getting a game of volleyball in. ...

    An amazing excursion. The captain, the crew and the other passengers made this a great excursion. The Island itself is suffering from low business after Covid, so please get off the boat and go into the town for a walk and some souvenirs. They work extra hard to make it clean. We had a delightful lunch at a little outdoor restaurant that had a delightful whole fried sea bass. A few icy cold beers and some time on the beach and we were back on the boat. The lunch they served was simple, yet tasty. Did not eat much since we ate on the Island. It is a great value for the price. Even though it is open bar and music it is great for kids (families) The net on the back of the boat will be a hit with the kids. *side note. The boat is SUPER clean and they follow all covid protocols. Very impressed with how efficient the whole tour was.
