Great captain, guide and crew!
We had a wonderful day from start to finish. Our captain was knowledgeable about the area, as well as had a good sense of humor with us and his crew. Crew and guides were helpful and friendly. Our snorkeling was highlighted by yellow snapper, trigger fish, something else I can’t remember the name of (lol). Taco lunch following it all. Beautiful day at Las Marietas island.

Manny made the trip!
We had a great day snorkeling with Manny, who is knowledgeable, friendly, and made sure we got to see all of the cool stuff there is to see (great fish, boobies, definitely no humpbacks because “whale season” was over;)).

Lovers Beach and Whale Watching
Manuel was our tour guide and although the natural beauty was amazing, Manuel (Edgar boat captain) just took it to another level. His enthusiasm and passion for the area was infectious. We had the most amazing caves tour, and were treated by Mother Nature to a very special cow and calf whale watching experience on the way back. Book with Roberta. This outfit is all pro.

Amazing!!
Me and my friend went to do some snorkel and diving tour. It was fantastic! We saw some whales and dolphins. The equipment was really high quality and they even gave me a wetsuit since the water was really cold. The staff was fun and pretty knowledgeable. I really reccommend them.

Poor business practices
Dec 2020
Due to an acute and sudden illness, my partner and I were unable to join the tour we had scheduled and paid for. The rest of our group was able to go and had a fine (but not amazing) time.

We did not expect a full refund, however we were expecting the extra $75 per person fee to be refunded. This fee is optional and is to access a part of the island that is restricted by the government. Since we did not go, this fee did not apply, and we found it inappropriate that the company would not refund it.

Hi Phil, I am sorry you are disappointed you didn’t get the refund you were hoping for, but let me explain you again how the Hidden Beach booking process works (and actually every other booking process whatsoever…) Hidden Beach has a limited amount of 116 visitors a day in the whole bay. When you book your spot, you are part of these 116, your spot is reserved and no one can have it for the day. If you cancel last minute, your spot is lost and no one will be using it. In this specific case, I would have lost 2 out of the 6 spots I am allowed to weekly, spots that I would have definitely sold otherwise. The entrance to the hidden beach is not “optional” the way you intend it (like you show up at the islands and decide if going in or not) but is regulated by strict rules. Let me ask you something: if you cancel a hotel reservation the very moment you are supposed to check in, do you ask a refund for the water, electricity and clean linen you didn’t get to use? Last, your reservation was at 1 in the afternoon which gave you plenty of time to get in touch. A proper notice would have opened the possibility for a reschedule or it would have allowed us to try to re-sell your 2 spots so we could have refunded you. What is very inappropriate instead, is that neither of you found a minute to email or call to comunicate you couldn’t make it to the trip until your friends showed up at 1 pm for the excursion and told us. Inappropriate is your attitude of “entitlement” without considering that on the other side there are actually people working who have planned the working day around your reservations, inappropriate is this all review I am afraid.

The staff are amazing, but the owners are terrible.
Went diving today with Sayulita Entourage. The staff are awesome. Our dive instructor Jamie and the dive crew are fun to dive with. During our last dive, my wife's lost her dive boot that goes into the flipper. Jamie immediately dove down and searched for it twice. With no lock we headed back in. Jamie informed us that there would be an extra charge and we told her that it won't be a problem. When we arrived back into town, we had some fish tacos provided as part of the package. As we were eating the tacos, Stephan the owner comes up and tells us we owe him 1000 pesos for losing the booty. My wife could not believe he was charging us that much for a worn out piece of dive gear. Stephan got upset when my wife questioned him about the price and stormed off saying we were not going to pay for it. On top of that, Roberta wis wife comes running over saying how terrible we are for not paying. I tried to tell them a dozen times that I never said we were not going to pay. I assured them that we are going to pay, but felt like we were being overcharged. I don't know if there was a language barrier since they sound French, but they were extremely rude and unprofessional business owners. I absolutely do not recommend or support this company. I will never be back to dive with them and will make sure to tell my friends to choose someone else. Jamie and the crew are fantastic and should find another dive place to work for.

FACT your wife lost a boot for which you didn’t offer to pay for, without being asked first. FACT when you were asked to pay for it (and in many years we never had to, as most of the people are sensible enough to understand that this shouldn’t be on us) you started with the story she lost it because it was too big. FACT if the equipment is too big you say that right away since you tried it on at the office and since we have sizes from 4 to 13 FACT we have brand new equipment right at the office for everyone to check, not away in some hidden storage... worn out…please just be serious FACT we charged you for what it would have cost us to go to Vallarta and buy that ourselves and you were also offered to drive to Vallarta yourself and found it cheaper if you could FACT you were rude and offensive accusing us to overcharge you, like we make our living out of clients who loose our equipment. FACT you don’t understand how exchanging rate works; you were so proud someone took your dollars at 17 when official exchange rate is 22 (you can easily google that) !!! You got overcharged and still were happy and proud about it and blamed us instead for using the ongoing exchange rate. FACT we have been in business for years and our crew has been working with us for even longer, I guess we are not that awful I attach here a link https://www.liverpool.com.mx/tienda/pdp/bota-mares-equator-buceo/1069280286?gfeed=true&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIz4aozpqW6AIVQRx9Ch1DQgX9EAQYAiABEgLR_vD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds of the boot incriminated; on top of that price of 899 pesos discounted at 719 pesos, you should add the 300 pesos that would have cost me in gas to go to Vallarta and the 3 hours of my time to get there and come back

Great trip to Marietas Islands! Highly recommend these guys
Feb 2020
From the first encounter with Roberta to look into the trip, Sayulita Entourage was easy to work with, professional, and responsive. We booked the 3 hour whale watching and snorkeling tour and our guide Manuel, and captain Edgar, were a joy to spend time with. We were a group of girlfriends who wanted to get out and see something new and they took good care of us. We saw a ton of whales (I also loved that they were very conscientious of the whales and didn't too close as it can be dangerous for the whales), had a lovely snorkel excursion where Manuel stayed with us the entire time and helped us see new things, and circled the island to see Blue Footed Boobies.

After we got back onto shores Manuel helped us find a nice place for lunch and walked us over, and also took care of us with a cab to not only confirm the cab location, but he confirmed how much it should be.

The trip surpassed all expectations!

Whale watching and Snorkeling
Jan 2020 • Friends
This was a very fun adventure although I thought the boat would be bigger we were expected to sit the whole time because it was small and rather rocky no bathroom just so you know .but a real adventure !lots of whales including babies and some snorkeling. in January I was surprised at how warm the water was in our group enjoyed Our host and boat driver both spoke English and were very polite and answered our questions as well as provided us lots of info about what we were seeing.This is not a party boat I will call it bare bottoms in terms of luxury buyer beware of that it is strictly a whale watching snorkeling kind of Pungo boat but it was fine for our party of six

Buyers beware, if you buy a whale watching/snorkeling eco adventure you actually get to snorkel and see whales and you won't end up on a party boat with people getting drunk and loud music! Also, if the description of the excursion says 8/10 people max why exactly do you expect a party boat?! I am glad though, and I am quoting, you had a fun and real adventure, you saw lots of whales and your hosts were polite and informative. Thanks to remark what our excursions are all about, I appreciate.
