We had the best time! The staff was very attentive and made sure we had plenty of drinks. The guac was the best we have ever had! Kids paddle boarded and we relaxed. Highly recommend!
Our experience was smooth from start to finish. We had a staff of three on board and they were very attentive and very nice. The boat was very nice and updated with two working bathrooms. The only negative for us was the water was a bit rough and boat was rocking a bit much for one of our friends on board.
The boat was immaculate and the crew were amazing. We saw way more whales than expected, relaxed, were served attentively all day. Highly recommended.
Hugo and his crew were absolutely amazing! I planned a proposal for my girlfriend and Hugo went above and beyond to ensure it was truly a memorable experience!
Our trip on Hugo’s boat was fantastic. Our party of 8 people ranged in age from 25 to 84, and everyone completely enjoyed themselves. Great trip around the Bay with snorkeling at Los Arcos and a trip to a small secluded beach. Captain Beto and his crew went above and beyond to meet and exceed our expectations. The crew could not stand to see any of us with an empty hand and were constantly filling them with either drinks or food! We would definitely book again!!
