Great way to see the lagoon!
, Jun 2021
So much fun! The guys here really know how to guide a tour. Gave us lots of information, lots of time in the water, and made it easy to interact with the other guests on the tour. Such a great experience. Also - the snacks are super fresh and delicious fruit and the open bar is generous :)
Good vibrations

It would be hard to screw up a boat trip on the Bacalar Lagoon with an open bar but our pilot and host Maui, and his lovely and delightful bartender, Maria, went to extraordinary lengths to keep everybody entertained and relaxed. Maui seemed knowledgeable about the lagoon’s history and geology, but he really shined as a DJ and his great sense of humor put everybody at ease.
Pure beauty!

Excellent trip with the longest itinerary on the lake. Great time to relax and to dicover. Great guide!
An amazing tour!

Maui and Kathy were amazing guides. Maui has so much knowledge of the area and Kathy made some amazing drinks! I went with my husband and 2 children age 12 and 13 and fun was had by all! If you are in the Bacalar area I strongly urge you to spend a few hours on this tour, we had a chance to swim in the beautiful clear waters in a couple of spots, what an incredible experience!
Nice trip

Very nice trip with a perfect guide and a cute assistant Maria. But we missed the different colors of the water.
Great Tour - Worth the price
, Dec 2020
From the beginning our group was never short of drinks. Maui provided us with a lot of information about the environment and was together with his assistant (sorry missed the name) a great host. Both kept the group entertained. I Highly recommend this trip when in Bacalar.

A wonderful and fun afternoon! We booked this tour for the 3 of us and really enjoyed every moment, the lake is stunning and the guided tour was fun and educating. Great service, lovely drinks, music and an amazing fruit presentation 🙏
BOOK THIS TRIP! Beyond amazing!
, Sep 2020
This is a MUST TOUR to BOOK! no kidding! Amir and his sister did a fabulous job entertaining and teaching our group about their culture, the zenotes, etc! Their hospitality and humbleness were awesome! They kept it fun, exiting, and intriguing. Due to the storm that was approaching during our tour, Amir recreated The itinerary. It was worth the snacks, drinks, quick small meal that was beyond delicious! He cooked on the boat Some delicious raja Tacos. And the tequila drinks were delicious made by the bartender, his sister. They had so much activity to do on this tour it was worth every dollar! BOOK BOOK BOOK!! You will not regret it!!

A party and a great time
, Sep 2020
Amir was the best! Very knowledgeable, kind, fun and was easily the highlight of our 2 Week Cancun trip. Worth every penny. Would most definitely come back and do another tour with him. He has everything you could ever ask for or want, hammocks on a boat we’re amazing, a variety of inflatable tubes, kayaks, SUP. The open bar included beer, tequila, the best mango I have ever tried, pineapple that gave Maui pineapple a run for its money, kiwi, bananas and banana chips were amazing. All in all his tours are the complete package. We saw many other tours that seemed extremely generic and borderline boring. Not Amir, he made sure that we had a great time, has Bluetooth speakers let’s you bump your own music and have a party. If I could give 10 stars I would. He is passionate in what he does and it shows, thanks Amir! 🤙🏽🤘🏽
