Amazing journey!
This was a present for a young couple. Their journey aboard the catamaran was an unforgettable (and very safe) experience, with the delicious food, the a amazing scenery, and the excellent service. I booked this via WhatsApp and the reservation/payment was easy. I highly recommend this trip for anybody who seeks to experience the beauty of Cartagena and its surroundings, and something worth spending the day doing.

The Perfect Way to End a Vacation
My husband and I have visited Cartagena before, but somehow a trip to the Rosario Islands eluded us. When I found this excursion, it was a great way to surprise him and close out the vacation. The boat wasn’t at full capacity which was GREAT. We had plenty of room to move about while keeping a safe distance. The staff was courteous and helpful. The views were stunning. The lunch was very good and very filling. One thing I’d advise: bring swim shoes for the second stop. The sea floor is rocky and prickly and generally uncomfortable. Other than that, book this tour, bring lots of sunscreen and have an AMAZING time!

Excellent Day !!! Professional
My husband and I did the Isla Rosario’s excursion with Bonavida Catamaran we spend an excellent day. Quick check in, all crew is súper profesional and provided excellent services all the time. Food and Non alcohol drinks are included. They sell at good price beers, cocktails. They provided us with masks, noodles for snorkeling. Bathrooms are cleans. Due to COVID vessel wasn’t at full capacity which gave us room to spread. They follow procedures for COVID. We stopped at 2 points plenty of time for snorkeling and swimming. Amazing excursion definitely recommend to do it.

Day trip on the catamaran
The catamaran day trip was awesome!
We really appreciate all the organisation and the agility of the staff: they were always there when we needed!

The snack in the morning was a nice surprise, we loved that it was a local speciality!

The meal was really good and the extra vegetables and fresh fruits were delicious!

The rhythm of the day was cool too: we had sufficient time snorkel before and after the meal.
We loved swimming to the beach (on the afternoon)!
Honestly, it is hard to find something to add to this day!!

Thanks for this experience!

Best Rosario Island experience, best ship, best crew! Hands Down!
Dec 2020
Me and my boyfriend lucked out. We went on December 26, and there were only about 18-20 passengers that day. The boat can accommodate much more, it is a large boat.

One big bonus for me was they had shaded seat options (I can't tan, red hair) and easy access to clean bathrooms.

The crew was very professional and fun. I and my boyfriend put back a few Club Columbias and snorkeled at both stops. We are in our 40s and preferred this tour's option of the "non-party" islands.

At the first island, it was too far to swim to the beach for me (I am chubby), but I snorkeled with their gear and life jacket. My boyfriend enjoyed diving off the side of the catamaran

Lunch was served when we arrived at the second destination. I had the veggie option and loved it. We snorkeled out to the beach, it was close enough to swim to.

The very best of our trip to cartagena
The Catamaran is big and can hold about 200 people. We were in luck because no more than 20 people were aboard. We headed to Rosario islands where we did snorkeling and swing. Then you head to Baru (near) were again you can snorkel and swim . There you receive a nice lunch.
