    We had a great time on the boat tour! Got to spend plenty of time at each of the stops - the cenote (swam in the cool water, took in the views, enjoyed the snack/refreshment bar), Passion Island (huge sandbar) and Bird Island (saw flamingos!). Our boat driver was friendly and engaging. Would recommend!

    Waste of time
    David_F, Sept 2023
    Trip was 20 minutes late getting started and ended 5 minutes early. Guide did not speak English. The cenote was very small and had so many people in it you were bumping into other people
    Response from Host, Sept 2023
    Thank you very much for your comment, we remind you that the activity is shared and many times we have to wait for other clients as you would like them to wait for you, the cenote is a fresh water spring and it is small, we have photos of the activity so you know where will they go
    The company was OK. Viator gave the wrong directions
    Daniel_v, July 2023
    Viator send me to the wrong meeting place. On the other side of the island. Thanks to a friendly Mexican who phoned the company I was picked up by a motorcycle and delivered to the right meeting point. Very bad!
    Response from Host, July 2023
    Thank you very much for your comment, normally the pick-up is at the hotels and we have no problems, the location was fine, only you made the wrong port, we will continue working to offer you the best service, we appreciate your comment
    3 Island Tour
    Trisha_S, Mar 2023
    Fun boat ride to each island! Each island was different and a neat experience. Would highly recommend!
    big déception
    cyril_m, Mar 2023
    The cenote is not a real cenonte . Its a construction to be similar as a cenote . The guide we have supposed to have is inexistant . He s just tell you «  u arrive here u have 1 hour to enjoy the place … «  The passion ilsland is full of boats and poeple !! No one is caring about the environment , the birds and all the species living there. who r terribly disturbed by the boats with music and all the tourists , The island must limits the numbers of poeple each day !!! We definitely don’t recommand this tour …
    Response from Host, Mar 2023
    Thanks for your comments there are several type of cenotes some are Open such as the one visited, in regrads of the enviroment we do really care and it's also frustrating for us, we will share your comments with the enviromental Office
    Great guide, beautiful trip
    Melissa_C, Feb 2023
    Traveling by boat to the Yahalau Cenote was beautiful. Our guide provided great history of the area and insight into the best time to come to see the whale sharks, etc.
    Great way to explore around the island
    Shira_B, Jan 2023
    Had a very nice tour guide that gave explanations in both English and Spanish about the islands and animals we saw. We had about 30 mins-1 hour to explore each stop which was plenty of time. The price included a taxi pickup from our hotel. Overall it was a lovely time and we were happy with the tour.
    Best Tour Ever!

    Great tour guide and captain! Thanks Omar and Bull for a great tour and ride! They even dropped us back off at our hotel, as it was in the way to their next stop.
    Great day for a tour!!!
    MaryLou_P, Nov 2022
    Nice 3.5 hour tour — Saw birds, THE “sand bar”, cenote….. beautiful day and great boat owner & guide. Highly recommend.
    Great experience
    Liz_O, Oct 2022
    Definitely worth the tour. Got to see the different parts of the island. My favorite part was the cenote. You have to do this while in Holbox.
    Great boat tour

    Best boat ride!
    Natzinet_G, Aug 2022
    The boat ride was a dream! Three hours of peace and beauty. We got to visit two small islands and a cenote.
    Alta_P, June 2022
    Loved this amazing tour, the tour guy and the captain were so knowledgeable and fun. We had a great time!
    You will love the cenotes and the islands!
    Antonio_V, May 2022
    Great tour! Our tour guides were pretty informative and had answers to all our questions. The islands were so quiet and filled with nature. We saw lizards, flamingos, stingrays, and all types of beautiful birds. Diving into the cenote is like diving to another multiverse.
    Fun tour.
    William_B, May 2022
    Fun tour. Beautiful cenote. Fun isla passion. We had thought we bought for bird island as well. Didn’t find out until after the tour that we would not be traveling to bird island. Otherwise would have been five stars.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thank you very much for sharing, when the weather allows it, instead of visiting Isla Pajaros, we visit Punta Mosquito, we think that the experience is better
    Très belle excursion
    Alexane_C, May 2023
    Premier arrêt au cenote Yalahau (payer 100 pesos supplémentaires par personne) ensuite nous sommes allés à la Isla de la Pasion avec un arrêt baignade et nous avons terminé l’excursion à Punta Mosquito. Prix de l’excursion raisonnable.
    Tudo ótimo
    Susana_C, May 2023
    Vieram buscar ao hotel à hora marcada de carrinho de golf. A viagem de barco fez-se bem, o guia era simpático. O tempo em cada lugar é suficiente e valeu a pena!
    Déception totale, à éviter
    Candice_B, May 2023
    Nous sommes vraiment déçu par cette excursion! Nous sommes partis avec 20 min de retard, a attendre sur le quai, notre guide, aussi gentil soit il, ne nous a absolument rien expliqué, il était juste là pour nous dire le temps que nous avions a chaque escale, le capitaine n’en parlons pas, il allait tellement vite que, comme tous les passagers il se prenait des vagues dans la figure et donc il ne regardait plus « la route » et lâchait les commandes très régulièrement… Pour une sortie en bateau, ne pas pouvoir regarder les alentours est quand même bien dommage, nous prenions tellement d’eau dans la figure qu’il valait mieux se couvrir et regarder ses pieds ! De même nos affaires étaient absolument innondées, serviettes, vêtement, sac, TOUT, car aucun petit coffre ou recoins sous les sièges pour les protéger, seuls le guide et le capitaine ont vite rangé les leurs dans la petite cale du bateau quand l’eau devenait trop abondante. Pour ce qui est des arrêts, Punta Mosquito joli banc de sable et eau bleu, Isla passion toute petite avec beeeeeaucoup de touristes, un mirador avec une jolie vue (notre bateau y est tombé en panne nous avons dû attendre 20 min supplémentaire qu’un autre bateau viennent nous chercher), et la cenote Yalahau qui n’en est pas vraiment une, plutôt une piscine naturelle, jolie mais petite, avec sur place un restaurant pas bon, des jolis hamacs, un mirador sympa, mais sans plus encore une fois. Nous nous faisions une joie de cette sortie, et si c’était à refaire nous ne le referions pas
    Response from Host, May 2023
    Nous sommes vraiment désolés pour votre mauvaise expérience mais quand les vagues sont fortes, il faut aller fort pour attraper les vagues. Croyez-moi, ni les capitaines ni les guides n'aiment se mouiller. Nous essaierons d'informer davantage les clients sur la météo. Nous apprécions votre commentaire et nous continuerons à travailler pour vous offrir le meilleur service

    PauloMartin_S, Mar 2023
    Excelente, los guías muy amables, puntualidad de recogida en el hotel. Recomendable para todo público.
    No lo repetiría.
    Dafne_E, Mar 2023
    Esperábamos más de este tour. Lo único que vale la pena es el cenote al que te llevan. No nos llevaron a isla pájaros en cambio si a otra parte de Holbox a la que puedes llegar caminando.
