    Not pleasant seeing caged sharks, dolphins and stingrays (with stings removed) very upsetting. I got back on the boat. Others seemed to enjoy it though

    The boat ride to the activities was entertaining, Charlie was filled with energy and kept everyone involved.

    This was advertised as snorkeling at a protected reef. No reef! Just open sea. So not as advertised just suck you in and disappoint you. Got a partial refund but wasted the time NOT snorkeling around a protected reef where free swimming fish would be and nothing like the picture used, probably not even the same sea or country. Disappointed and tired of cons that trip advisor a should not promote or allow booking or advertising

    I wouldn’t recommend it in any way, terrible experience with no respect to nature. We went on this tour with two kids (6 and 2 y.o.). First of all we were forced to rush earlier than agreed upon time, because they could gather other people at different hour. There was no any glass bottom on the boat. The staff member kept telling us that we have paid just for one child, while it was said that up to 3 y.o. was free of charge, pressuring us to be fast in the water, not helping at all ( as we had to take turns with my husband to hold the little child). The experience was good for my 6 y.o. because she has got the chance to see the fish. However it is not an ethic approach. Sharks and sting rays are trapped in cages trapped in water, they remove some parts of the fish “for our safety”. It’s like a zoo in the sea.

    Had a great time with the rays and the sharks and very much enjoyed the snorkelling. Luis was a great tour guide and made the experience very fun for us both! Thanks luis

    I really enjoyed this tour. Food was great, crew was nice, especially Anderson and Elijah. We did get in the water to get on boat that was not a glass bottom boat, but a catamaran. Fruit and snacks were the went out. Only complaint would be, that people shouldn't eat before snorkeling. It makes it hard to swim. I would recommend but not for kids.

    Luis was the best guide! He was so funny and sweet and we had the best time. Plenty of drinks, snacks, and great music for the trip! The three of us had a great time-we were able to relax and enjoy our time and knew Luis had everything covered.
