We had a great time! Chema and Tony took good care of us. We arrived at Los Arcos before any other boats and I was surprised at how no one else wanted to was a little choppy so I thought maybe the visibility was the issue. But as we were finishing up, a bunch of larger boats arrived and it got crowded! So really just good for Estigo tours for getting us there relatively early. We had lunch in Las Animas which was also wonderful and took an extra swim on the way back. It was a perfect day!

Chema & Lorenzo were fantastic. They were timely, meeting up with them was easy, and so knowledgeable and personable. When the water conditions in one area weren't awesome for snorkeling that day, they took us to another location to try it there. Their recommendations for our time in Las Animas were also great. We enjoyed a tasty meal at a place that had shower access, which was a nice touch after snorkeling!

The crew was fantastic, the captain was top notch, the scenery was awesome. The crew was right on top of everything and extremely friendly. The food and drink were very good snd the skit the crew did at the end was very entertaining. If I ever go back to Puerto Vallarta, I would love to do the cruise again! Well done!!

Had a wonderful time with Jonathan and Chamas from Estigo Tours! The water at Los Arcos is so clear and full of sea creatures. Las Animas beach is beautiful.

Great guide, amazing snorkeling!! The best part is being able to totally customize this private tour...that flexibility is the best!
