Hi just go back and wanted to give my review on this excursion.
We went on the day cruise as we had children with us. It was $70 per adult and $35 for kids. I think if you book online you get a 10% discount.
Now I was very tired this day as I was deathly ill the previous night and we were seated in the sun so that may have added to my dislike of this excursion. So my first tip is that if you get seated at the edge of the ship asked to be moved pronto to somewhere in the middle where you know the canopy (once they pull it over) will cover you!
You have to pay at port fee of 30 pesos per adult to go to the marina and board the ship. Once you board you eat breakfast downstairs which was eggs, sausage and pancake I think? Then you go to your bench to sit. The pirates have dramamine if you ask which I gladly took some.
You are then assigned a pirate who gets you drinks throughout the trip.
The pirates do some dancing and play some games with the kids on your 2 hour ride to the beach they take you too. Yes 2 hours way too long for me!
Once we got to the beach it was nice but they didn't have enough snorkel gear for everyone so the people that didn't have any had to go to the beach and then go out after the people who got gear were done - and yup got to use our gear that we already used without it being sanitzed!
Snorkeling was horrible. There were little jelly fish that stung you and they had you all in this one little area where everyone was so close to each other that you kicked other people and got kicked. I dont think anyone stayed in for more then 10 min! The gear also did not fit my little daughter's mouth so if you have little ones bring your own gear.
Once you were done you go to the beach where you stay for yup 2 hours! and we forgot to put on sunscreen again before going the beach so we got really burnt. It was a nice beach I'll say that but I was not wanting to stay there for that long.
Then got back on the boat and ate lunch which was chicken, ribs, rice, bread, corn.
Then more shows for the 2 hours back! They asked you to buy a raffle ticket for $5 bucks to help some charity. Then asked you to tip your pirate, then asked you to give more tip for all the pirates as a whole once you left the ship.
They sold a picture of you that they take when you get onboard for $10 bucks as well.
So for me I didn't like it nor did my husband. Too long of a boat ride, too long at the beach, snorkeling sucked. But my kids liked it because they liked the beach.
Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
