A lot of fun!

Easy pick up as we were staying in the old city and the port was just a short walk away. A couple things to note is that this doesn’t stop at a beach and there is snorkeling available but we didn’t see much of a variety of fish/ sea life. On the way back it was a bit difficult for the crew to dock the catamaran due to the time of day and how many boats there were vs. how big the catamaran was. This wasn’t a problem for us, I actually felt bad for the crew as I could tell this was very frustrating for them. I’m mentioning this as to not plan anything immediately after as a precaution but I’m sure like us, you may want to take a nap after anyway. Overall, wonderful staff, delicious drinks, fire playlist and a lot of fun!

Excellent staff, beautiful boat

It’s a great experience but could be much better if you could get off the boat at least one stop, or one island beach. It’s basically a boat and snorkeling tour

Nice trip! Music, food and swimming. We got off the boat twice to swim in the water. Don’t expect to get onto the islands - you stay by the boat. The staff was very friendly. Bring sun block!

The trip is nice for the boat ride but it doesn’t stop anywhere. Just basically open sea

The only thing that really upset me was that they advertise snorkeling but did not anchored any where close to riffs Also my husband asked one of the crew members for some soap to clean a mask and he was very quick to answer no. I feel he could have been a lot more helpful

3 stops not 5

Nice boat, the crew was really nice and the food served was good. They served a small breakfast, lunch, juice and sodas. The booking states 5 stops but we only stopped at 3 and did not get to go on any if the islands just snorkeled/ swim in the water near the island. The island were to far to swim to. I feel like that is a bit misleading on their description.

Dear Passenger, Thank you for your feedback. In our description we never mentioned 5 stops, actually we only offer two stop and there is no disembarkation provided as you could see in our dashboard on Tripadvisor. I am wondering if you maybe confused Bona Vida with another boat, as we are not serving any kind of breakfast ( you have mentioned that on the review ). Best regards, Bona Vida Crew

Although it was quite crowded and passengers were like hungry lions cutting in front of you, it was a very pleasant day. It made two stops and the provided lunch was much more than enough. Alcoholic drinks are extra, just avoid the horrible cold red wine...water is a better choice! Very friendly and capable crew. Be sure to put something in the tip jar so they'll ring the bell!

Thanks for your opinion, we will consider the possibility of changing the wine

A really nice boat.

My wife and I went on the tour. It is definitely worth doing. Most of the time is on the boat. The first stop was for snorkeling which we passed on. I did swim and can say the water was beautiful. The second stop was off an island where they ferried you to shore. Nice, but nothing special. One thing I can tell you is the boat is nice, and very large. It’s stable and you don’t feel crowded. You can find a lower price to the islands on the small boats, but don’t do it. You get what you pay for. Also the crew is very nice and works really hard. If you are going to the Rosario islands, this is the boat to take.

Great drinks and great time. Only bad thing was that this site says snorkeling was included with our tickets but we had to pay approx. $35 usd more
