Great boat for family. We had a one and 4 year old with us. Crew kept shade moving for us. Great food and we picked seeing wildlife, fishing, beach and tried but failed with snorkeling with the 4 year old. Calm boat ride on a beautiful day. In and out of water. Saw dolphins and turtle, caught 2 fish, played on a beach. 4 year old got to drive the boat for a bit.
I realize we are the first people to leave a review on this boat, but this boat/crew/owner should have 50 5-Star reviews! The most amazing private charter we have ever taken and we have done this in Cabo and twice in Cancun. Raul and Juan were our crew on the boat and both of them were so warm, informative and helpful! I highly recommend asking for them when chartering this boat. We were taken to a secret beach with no one on it, made fresh guacamole and ceviche, and given the best service on our trip. A reminder to gringos (us) that these amazing crew members will give you the same kindness you give them! A 20% gratuity was given and you can tell how much it meant…plus, they earned it! 5/5 would recommend and will come back to Hugo for a boat next year.
