Customer Reviews for Boat Blast & Snorkel Adventure
This was pretty fun. The boats were easy to drive and a lot of fun to play with. We got to zip around the ocean for about 15 - 20 minutes I think. Watch those sharp turns, you'll get wet! :-) The snorkeling would have been great, but the sea was a little too rough for me. I had a hard time keeping up. Bring a swimsuit and a towel - they don't provide one. Drinks are free but you have to buy lunch, prices were reasonable.

Boat blast with family
We have three kids: 18, 15 & 13. This was an excellent advanture for the group. The boat ride out and back was by far the highlight for everyone. The snorkeling was rushed and the group was not given to really look at things. You had to swim the whole time to keep up with the group. You do this excusion for the fun of driving the little speed boats, not snorkeling.

Review 3 for Boat Blast & Snorkel Adventure
Date:March 8, 2013
Did not need this excursion boats were not all in good operating condition the people in charge of this excursion were not real helpful except for Jimmy the rest spent most of the time yelling at people to get the boats moving but this was a little hard when the boat throttle cable was not working properly finally got a different boat and things went better they were calling people chickens if they were not snorkeling just seems for the cost there would be much better options for the money.
Very Fun and Relaxing Excursion. The boats were fun. Some faster than others. You drive them awhile dock them on floating peir and snorkle awhile then drive back. Have be be a pretty stron swimmer for snorkleing but my kids did great. The beach is nice. But we mostly sat under the shelter and relaxed. Drinks are included and they were good. You can order food. The service was exceptional. Restrooms were very clean. Overall a great excursion.
This was a blast. My husband loved the little boat, zipping back and forth. We were soaked before we got to the dock station! The snorkling was great. Saw neat fish, colors and the coral. The guides were great. Lots of fun. Beach was beautiful. Good drinks afterward. It went by way to fast.
We did this excursion with a group of friends and family and that really added to the fun. After a long bus ride (maybe 30 minutes) we got to the beach where we were given a safety briefing, outfitted, and shown our little two-man boats. My husband had a blast snaking in and out as we followed the lead boat and I arrived at the snorkeling dock breathless and soaked! I'm not a strong snorkeler and decided to sit on the dock and wait for the others who described the snorkeling as not that exciting, but still fun. The boat ride back to the beach was as fun as the ride out.
Back at the beach we had a few hours to relax while Eduardo kept our beer glasses full. Despite an afternoon rain that chased us all under the canopy, we had a great time. There were snacks available for purchase and the free drinks flowed like water.
In the end, I didn't even feel cheated that I didn't snorkel. I still got my money's worth.

Great fun but bring bug spray
This excursion was alot of fun with the boats and snorkeling. Food is available for a reasonable amount of $$. One thing which is not noted in the description or on the tour tickets is you NEED bug spray. There are giant horseflies so if you are prone to bug bites, bring bug spray. I have 4/5 bites on my hand and it is still red, itchy and swollen 4 days later.
While the excursion itself was a total BLAST, it took a looooong time to actually do the boat portion once we got to the beach. We were told that they wanted smaller groups to go out due to "slightly rougher weather than expected" which we don't think to be true, seeing as they took out all the boats.... They were probably just overbooked. They did ask for volunteers to stay behind and to compensate, they'd give us free drinks and nachos. That was great!.... For the first hour or so... It was supposed to be a 20 minute boat ride, a 30 minute snorkel, then another 20 minute boat ride back. Well over 2 and a half hours later, and being told repeatedly "10 more minutes!" we finally got to go onto the boats. The boats were absolutely a blast and the snorkeling was AMAZING! It was totally worth going there, just don't volunteer to stay behind!!!!
