Excellent day cruise with many activities. Snorkeling at Los Arcos, kayaks, swimming and stand up paddle boards at a secluded beach; tubing and all drinks/food included. Don Gato and the crew were friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
The grill master prepared a delicious lunch of sausage, ribs, beef, chicken, pineapple and fresh tortillas...yummy!
A great value! Highly recommend!

OMG Seriously what a great day trip we had with these guys! Met up in the marina at 10:30am and we were gone by 11am. We didnt come back until about 5:30pm. It was a full day out on the Catamaran. The boat holds a maximum of 30 passengers and we were just 20 so not a huge group of people - which was kind of nice. This excursion is great because its all inclusive from food and drinks to water activities. They provide you everything you need from Snorkels and Fins, to Stand Up Paddle Boards, Kayaks and even rafts they can drag you in from behind the boat.

They also make sure you always have a drink in hand whether alcoholic or non. The food was also really good. THey had all kinds of veggie sticks out for a snack. For Lunch it was an awesome BBQ - Chorizo, Chicken, Steak and Ribs, Roasted Potatoes, Guac, Salsa, Tortillas, Beans - just a great spread that definitely leaves you full.

They took us out to some great snorkeling spots and a private beach for some more relaxation and snorkeling. On hand from beginning to end is a man with a great Nikon camera and several go pros. He is there to document your day. He took lots of great pictures of my entire family and we ended up buying the CD he was selling which was very reasonably priced for having an on hand photographer for your day.

The guys on the ship were always friendly, happy, helpful and informative. They made it a great environment and a wonderful afternoon!

Highly recommend! Oh and Panda is the Best MC and Host for the day!

We loved our day out at sea! Our main man, Don Gato, met us on shore and got us all set for a day on the boat. Once abroad, he did such an awesome job getting everyone settled in and comfortable, everything was explained in both English and Spanish, and off we went. The boat is awesome, the crew was awesome, the drinks were good, and everything was good! We stopped to snorkel and Don Gato was again great and got us all setup; he did a wonderful job in the water with us making sure everyone was safe and stuck together. It's not legendary snorkeling or anything like that but was still pretty cool. Next we went to an awesome private beach with awesome clear-green waters to paddle board and kayak for a bit. They gave many people a ride to shore in a separate boat and let others just swim over. On the way back they raised the sails and we had an awesome meal at sea. The food was seriously good! It was a BBQ and my wife and I don't eat meat but these guys made a special vegetarian meal just for us! It was so thoughtful and really delicious! Absolutely one of our best days in PV and you should seriously go if you just want a relaxing and fun day out at sea!

I think Bora Bora has change a lot over the years reading the reviews. I got the deal from my hotel and she said it was worth to pay the extra pesos for bora bora because the food and experience is better than the cheaper boat which was around 600 pesos. We decided to pay extra for the bora bora and that was the best decision at the end of the trip. We were a family of 14 people. You get all you can drink and food. You finish a drink and they give you another one.
-so we got to the marina and you pay 20 pesos port fee kids 11 under free. You wait in the waiting area inside the port for your boat. We were welcome by Gato our tour guide. He's very enthusiastic and made our adventure one to remember. We got in the boat and he explain how our trip was going to be. Snorkeling followed by island trip for kayak and SUP and food after. There was 7 crew member and they were all super friendly. We look at the boat with 2 levels that was cheaper and it was over packed with people.
The snorkeling went really well. All my family enjoyed it. It was great for kids and adults with lots of fun. After we snorkel we were taken to a beach shore were its private that's were you swim and do the activities. You jump off the boat and swim to shore.The water is clear and warm. They take drinks and beer to the shore for you to enjoy. After the activities you swim back to the boat and followed by food. You get cheese, chicken, guacamole, quesadilla, asada and much more. After we ate they open the boats parachute to sail. Gato explains the different places to go by the shore as you are riding by the shore.
After the trip they pass a tip jar make sure to tip them for their service. You get a camera guy with you threw all the events that is taking pictures. You can buy the cd for 500 pesos at the end of the trip.
-I recommend Bora Bora nice friendly staff and not an overpacked boat.

What an incredible trip for the day.  We were scheduled for a different excursion to see the waterfalls and snorkel, but they were too full.  We were so glad to take this trip instead.  Starting at 11 am for a full day of sailing over to the Arcos.  Here we snorkled through an arch-like tunnel and saw many beautiful fish before taking off again to a secluded small private beach where we were able to paddle board and canoe.  On our return trip we were given the most delicious barbeque, including carne asada, grilled chicken, sausage, grilled vegetables, pineapple all-inclusive til your hearts content. All along the way, a professional photographer is taking pictures to offer, if you would like, a special memory package to remember your day (he even jumps into the water with you as you snorkel!) But any adventure is no fun if the staff is rude or not helpful, which is far from Bora Bora! They have a great Captain and crew, experienced and knew what they were doing, we trusted them explicitly! They made the journey both entertaining and fun! Thank you to the crew of Bora Bora for making our 30th Wedding Anniversary very memorable!
