The adventure starts with an exciting boat ride in two person boats. The water was kind choppy, but the small boats seemed to handle it just fine. You pass through a mangrove "jungle" then out to the reef. The reef was extraordinary! We saw lots of beautiful fish and coral. We even saw a stingray. Our guide, Jose, was very... More

We really enjoyed the snorkeling tour. The reef is a great place to see in person the kinds of marine life you know from TV shows. Our guide was very nice, patient, etc. Lots of other people out there, but it didn't seem over-crowded. The speed boats are fun to drive. However, the trip to the reef was terrifying for... More

We went snorkeling with the jungle boat tour. It was great. Can not emphasize this enough. Had a guide named Jose. He was awesome. We got to see many fishes and corals. Even saw a sea turtle. We can not wait to go back. I highly recomend this tour. The staff at the marina was great also. Very friendly.

We went on the speedboat jungle tour and had a great time. The boats are fast! During the snorkeling our guide was showing us all the different fish. We even saw a stingray. One word of warning is if you are pale like me make sure you cover up/ be careful as you are out for a good couple of... More

Great first mates and captain. We caught all kinds of fish on our shared charter! They cleaned the fish and we took it back to the hotel and had it cooked for us the next day! We caught bait, then we went out further and caught queen trigger fish and barracuda. I wish the prices were more reasonable for taxidermy.... More

I booked a six hour trip in advance through my cc rewards program. Showed up at the docks early, wind blowing 10-20 mph gusts...already knew what I was in for. Went out anyways, boat was about a 40 foot cruiser, captain was very able for the conditions, the mate worked hard to put us on fish. I just watched the... More

We had a great time racing through the bay, mangroves and ocean in these mini speed boats. Barracuda Marina was professional and polished, and they provided all of the equipment and safety gear we needed. The boat ride leads to snorkeling at at reef where there are La Musa underwater statues. There were lots of fish at the reef, which... More

We did the speed boat tour and it was so much fun!!! We snorkeled around a reef with a ton of fish and even got to see the underwater statues. Very reasonably price and a great time. The employees are so kind and friendly. We got to see a huge crocodile named Poncho at the marina. We would do it... More
