Not great for english
, Aug 2022
It was a great tour! The lunch was nice and the staff were great. We had asked for an English tour guide and we got one that spoke very little. We were looking for more information regarding the Park!
Awesome experience, would definitely recommend
, Jul 2022
The staff is truly great. Very helpful and welcoming. Everything we needed was being arranged. Great spot we visited and the boat is really nice too.
Due to a scheduling mixup...
, Jul 2022
Due to a scheduling mixup we ended up doing a different tour (speedboats to Cinto/Cristal/Concha) but it was great. Luis's team on the boat didn't speak English but one of the other passengers translated on the rare occasion that we didn't understand something. Hot tip: if you can grab the back-left seats those are the most shaded and comfortable.
Great day
, Jun 2022
Had a wonderful day, swimming was the highlight. Lunch was delicious and the boat ride was great! Would recommend this to others.
Must do in Santa Marta

We will wait for you
Nice motor boar tour. As serious sea sailiors for us no serious event
, Mar 2022
We didn’t meet any Luis. Actually it was by motor to a beach, some nice lunch, simple snorkling and they did their very best to communicate in english. No discussions about anything nor any explanation about sailing or whatever. Mostly and mainly a motor boat tour and a serious sunburn because no shade on the beach
icon Response from Host , Mar 2022
Dear thank you very much for your visit. I'm sorry you didn't have the best day. I think that day I planned badly and it wasn't me or anyone who spoke English. If you come back let me know I'll invite you.
Great crew
, Mar 2022
An intoxicated American wanted to get back to her hotel and successfully persuaded the crew to cut short our time at the beach we sailed to. No one else had any input, they catered to her.

Dear Robert, we do not understand your review since we have not returned earlier any day.
Beautiful Beach
, Feb 2022
Luis took us to one of the best beaches in Tayrona. Luis and the crew are so accomodating and constantly make sure that everyone is having a good time. The boat ride there can be rough, the seas are pretty choppy. If you get seasick easily, I would pre-medicate with meclizine or some other antinausea medication. Otherwise, we had a great time.

Thanks a lot for visiting us... See you soon
Fun and playful!

We loved crossing the channel and how the captain navigated the tide and waves with skill and playfulness! Thanks for a grand day on the ocean!

Really great day on the water. Worth every penny.
, Jan 2022
We had a great time on the boat. On the way to the park, the boat just use the motor, but on the way back, the crew put up the sail. Luis said goodbye to us at the dock, because he had things to do with his kids, and we had a great time even though he wasn’t there. The crew was great, and very attentive to making sure we were all happy and comfortable. The lunch was excellent—one of the crewmembers had caught the fish that morning. We went to a beach in Tayrona Park where we snorkeled, swam, and used the paddle board. The views were beautiful, and it was so fun just to be out in the waves on that beautiful sailboat.

Jumping off the bow was...
, Oct 2021
Jumping off the bow was super fun. Beach is just ok, nothing special. Crew great! Super nice and very accomodating . Boat was smaller than I thought and it was packed full. Trip is only an hour each way so that was good. Had a lot of toys for us to play with like a paddle board etc. I would likely do it again.

A day well spent

It was a great experience. Luis has a boat in very good condition. His crew is nice and helpful (they guided us to the best spots for snorkeling). The grilled fish they gave us for lunch was very tasty. I certainly recommend this experience.
