5.0 I loved it

Sasha L, Apr 2024

Very nice experience, our tour guide was friendly, we had a good time.


5.0 It is worthwhile

Luis T, Mar 2024

I waited several months to be able to live this experience for myself. But it was definitely worth every second of it. From the beginning, Xavier explained what we would be doing and asked us to be respectful of the marine life, which I thought was a nice gesture on his part. When we arrived, we were about 15 minutes waiting for a sighting, but the wait was worth it. While we were waiting, Xavier made jokes. He even told us several anecdotes about his experiences with sharks of all kinds. At the time of snorkeling, I was a little nervous, but then I saw that it was pretty safe, and I went for it. I will never regret this experience. It was beautiful; I can't describe how nice it was.
