An OK trip

Food passable but far from great. A long swim. Lousy snorkeling. Did see whales. Cool islands and birds decent crew.

Either the ad is out of date or it's a scam. My friends and I were very excited to go but as the trip went on we were slowly more and more disappointed. It was advertised that you would see the famous "hidden beach" of the islands, snorkel, paddle board and kayak all day long. The breakfast was good, but... More

Amazing crew including host, Paco, and Luis. Definitely a place to kick back and enjoy a cool boat ride. After the activities: snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking, passengers went on a smaller boat to visit one of Las Marietas beaches. Feels like a beautiful small private beach. Only con: you have to pay extra to swim to Playa del Amor.... More

This tour tries to get every last peso out of you. When we booked the trip we were told it included the hidden beach and all the fees. Boy were we wrong. There is a port fee, a park fee, if you want more than coffee and bread before you get on the boat there is a fee for that,... More

It's supposed to be whale watching + Marietas island snorkelling/kayaking with hidden beach tour We got: incredibly poor activities and whale watching; loud music and a lot of talking as an entertainment; a *story* about Marietas instead of landing there. The Bahia Alegre crew and an agent who sold as the tickets just literally waisted one day of our holiday... More

We bought a ticket to go to the hidden beach little did we know the ticket was just for the boat... after paying more "to go to the hidden beach" at the Pier and getting two bracelets convincing us we were ... little did we know you had to call and reserve a spot to actually go inside a day...

Pros: Very friendly staff, fun with music and dancing. We enjoyed the staff, the games and the DJ, Paco. On the way back from the island drinks were available and we enjoyed the fun loving staff very much. They should advertise that instead of trying to make it sound like a snorkeling, kayaking whale watching adventure. The ride was smooth... More

Incredible overall experience, I have been to Mexico around 10 times and I have been on multiple tours. We went on the marianas island tour. A catamaran takes you to an island where you go snorkelling paddle boarding, kayaking and whale watching in season. ( we went in January and saw several pods of humpback whales) They serve you lunch... More

We arrived at the kiosk at the Marina and were given a pamphlet to read about going to the hidden beach and how it is protected blah blah blah but we can pay an extra $80 without a guarantee to enter the hidden beach. Remember to bring extra cash if you expect to do that. It is advertised as a... More
