    The tour was fun. We could see turtles and rays while snorkeling. There were enough guides who made sure that everything went smoothly. Contrary to the information, the provider has no office on site. So if you are traveling individually, you have to wait for the bus that collected the local hotel guests. Except for this misinformation, everything was perfectly described and organized. We would definitely recommend this tour.

    It was really a successful tour! The crew was awesome! So helpful, funny and kind. They had a lot of experience and knew a lot about the area and the animals in the area. We stopped at amazing beaches and did all the activities promised to us through the app. And we were almost always alone because we didn't stop at the touristy places. And the lunch was very good too! I highly recommend!
