The crews are friendly. They're willing to help and answer any questions. The Marietas island itself is beautiful too.
Great tour!! We saw 2 kinds of whales, plus dolphins. The staff was great :
We had a blast! Would recommend to anyone and everyone! The crew was extremely nice and knew how to have a good time! The crew was also very informative on the Marietas Islands. The highlight of the trip was the whales! A whale jumped so close to the boat, it was an experience of a lifetime! The food served and open bar was definitely a plus as well.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our full day tour to the Marietas Islands. The staff on the boat were very accommodating, ensuring everyone had a wonderful time. It was our first time on a tour like this, our first experience snorkelling, as well as our first paddle boarding experience, and we had a blast!!
The trip was amazing! Highly recommend.
The four of us totally enjoyed our experience on the Chica Locca. From the moment we saw the boat we knew we were in for a great day. Enroute to the Mariattes Islands we saw whales romping and jumping, the group was engaged. The group size was comfortable, the sports equipment was in good shape, and the destination was amazing. We would highly recommend this tour. We would however recommend that you have a first aid kit on board, and gluten free options would be appreciated. All in all a fab days and we will pass the word.... Thanx....
This tour was amazing!
We had an amazing time on this tour - Saul and crew truly did a wonderful job. They were so attentive and helpful, and the food and music great. We saw many whales and enjoyed our time on the island. I highly recommend chicca locca and co. This will remain an all time favorite memory for our group!
We had a blast. The Chica Loca crew were amazing, fun, Attentive, friendly and more. We would define its tour with them again!!
This tour was truly amazing!!!! It was a nice ride out to the islands, a wonderful time at the islands and a fun party on the way back! Would definitely book again if I was looking for another trip to the Marietas
Had an amazing time on this tour. Crew was incredible. Panda has me rolling. Plenty of drinks to go around. Food was descent. Would definitely recommend this tour!
This was one of the highlights of our Mexico trip! The crew was fun and attentive and the boat and equipment was clean and well taken care of. I found it to be an excellent value- boat trip, snorkeling, paddle-boarding, food, and drinks. Our family group had quite the range of ages older teenagers, myself 39, and my folks 67 and 71 and we ALL had such a fun day. I would do this day trip again in a heartbeat!
Our group of 13 people were amazed by this excursion. We saw rays, dolphins, whales and a sea turtle. The snorkeling was not terrific but the rest of trip more than made up for it. The staff was fabulous and we were served breakfast, lunch, drinks and snacks. They were extremely attentive and very knowledgeable. We purchased the photos from the trip at a very reasonable rate. I would totally recommend this excursion to family and friends. Thanks for the great memories!
The Chica Locca and her crew were amazing. The boat was big and comfortable. From the time we boarded we were pretty much waiting on hand-and-foot. We were a breakfast of fruit and muffins, a mid-morning snack, a lunch of a sandwich, pasta salad and a green salad, and an afternoon snack of ceviche. The drinks flowed all day: water, juice, soda, beer, Bloody Mary's, Margaritas, Pina Colada's and anything else you wanted. The staff was helpful and while on board they hustled. We saw many whales too. All in all it was a great day.
Went near the end of 2/2017. The boat was huge, more than enough room for 30+ people to fit comfortably. Great music. The staff were amazing! Funny and insanely attentive throughout the trip. The captain would take time to follow whale/dolphin sightings to get a better look. Highly recommend!
Went in Oct. Didn't see dolphin/whales but descript.changed since trip so maybe that wasnt on ours. Marietas closed to visitors, but staff excellent/attentive, great music/socializing vibe, a lot of fun stuff to do and stronger drinks/food service compared to other tours. Wld def do this trip again!
This was by far the best day of our vacation and it was all good. We saw whales, dolphins, the blue-footed boobie birds on the protected Marietas Islands. Amazing food, non-stop bar and non-alcoholic beverages, use of SUPs, kayaks, waterslides but most of all, it was the above and beyond service extended to every single guest on this cruise that made it so memorable. Even the trip to/from the marina was a blast. Accommodated all ages we were 2 adults with 2 teen-agers but most guests were adults in 20s-30s.. Don't often post reviews but Chica Loca's Captain and crew definitely warrants the recommendation.
The crew was outstanding from the minute we got on the boat. I enjoyed so many things about this trip except for my losing my phone as I was filming whales breaching when I got hit my a wave. The snorkeling was wonderful and enjoyed all the extra's we had on the trip this is a must for all.
I'd highly recommend this fun day trip. You can snorkel, paddle, kayak, and walk to a waterfall. Wonderful, friendly guides. Breakfast, lunch, and free drinks served.
Best day of my trip! So much fun on this boat tour. I would definitely go back and would recommend this 100! We stayed in Puerto Vallarta and decided to go with this tour instead of the local ones and so glad we did because we had a blast! The crew, food, drinks, activities were all fantastic. Do it! You'll have tons of fun!
Such a great time! Will definitely use them again.
Fantastic! Awesome service, really good vibe. The guys that worked on the boat never let me go thirsty, and were really knowledgeable about the Marietas Islands. Felt very welcomed and entertained the whole time! The food is surprisingly good as well. The breakfast was pretty light so you might want to have a snack before boarding, but there is plenty of food later on.
Unfortunately, the coolest part of the islands was closed due to conservation not really closed, but very limited/expensive access, but that's not really within their control. We were taken to a different hidden beach, which was still really cool. We went during the week on an off season late November, so there were much fewer people - which was nice. Although I was told that during busy times, it is more of a party boat, and gets much more packed and rowdy. Just depends on what you're looking for.
We had an awesome time!
Amazing day trip with friendly staff! The islands are absolutely stunning and we got to go snorkeling, play with the water slide that came with the boat and other water activities. Attentive staff made sure we had enough to drink, eat and took great pictures. This tour is definitely worth it!
Best tour we have ever taken, a musts do if you visit Sayulita, Nayarit. Staff was extremely attentive, and in tune with their guests. We were very fortunate to have been their guests. We were celebrating my husbands 60th birthday and he said it was his best birthday ever. The food was perfect, the fishing experience was exhilarating. I have not been comfortable slightly claustrophobic snorkeling for several years and had no anxiety this time and thoroughly enjoyed it. The slides are amazing and the ride to and from were great in the open transport limo.
