This is a tour definitely worth taking if you are in Zihuatanejo or Ixtapa!! It's free drinks and a nice snack. The crew was super friendly and brought you your drinks. The captain was great and did a very nice job identifying points of interest along the islands.

We went with friends and it was the best night of the week. From the time you get on the boat the staff were constantly serving drinks and attending to everyone's needs. Our classes were never empty! Also the food was supposed to be an appetizer but it was like a full meal and it was also very good. The... More

This is the third time we have been on the Picante Sunset Cruise. The owner no longer sails the boat. On previous cruises we were taken to the rocks and watched the sunset from near there. This didn't happen this time. The captain this trip gave information, but not as much as the owner did on previous cruises. The meal... More

Hi, hatcat575, Thank you for posting your review. We apologize that you didn't enjoy it as much as previous years. The conditions of the wind and ocean vary from day to day, so it is not always possible to get close to the rocks. The same goes for non-motor sailing; we have to rely on the right conditions, which do... More

We were a group of 50 people and took the Picante out for a day of sun and snorkeling. It was fabulous! The staff were so friendly, helpful and fun. Lunch was tasty and consisted of sandwiches, salad, and fruit and all the drink we could handle. We did spinal er sailing on the way back which was a blast.

Perfect weather and a great sunset. The catamaran was very steady, a light meal and alcohol included. The crew was great and went out of their way to serve you. The view of Zihuatanejo and Ixtapa from the boat was so beautiful. A great evening sailing into the sunset.
