As for the Bula, which is a 45' catamaran that takes you to one of the islands just off shore. This is a very casual tour. Do not expect a lot and you will enjoy it, but this is nothing like the catamarans in Hawaii....More

The crew was very helpful and professional. I've been on other boats here but the Bula is my favorite. Take it to deer island and hang out for the day!

The captain & crew were very friendly and helpful & spoke pretty good english for us "gringos". This is a pretty old catamaran, a bit rundown, but still solid enough to be a safe boat. About 40 feet by 24 feet (my estimate, no measurements...More

Let's go fishing! Get on the boat, on the way back catch yellow tail, and another little fish, get back to land, pictures, then fillet that fish, get it cooked, have Pina colada while waiting, then served to you, that was awesome.

Had a good experience with Bula. We ended up being the only people scheduled for their Deer Island tour, but they ran it anyways. They dropped us off where we wanted for snorkeling and let us choose our activities. We also forgot to tell them...More

This is a great value and it's not so large a catamaran that you don't get personal attention. The crew is very accommodating and you'll LOVE Deer Island. This is a do not miss trip while in Mazatlan
