    Alvaro was a great guide! He was very knowledgable but also let us appreciate the quiet while we were snorkeling. The gear worked very well, and we did not get wet at all. We wore leggings, wool socks, and long sleeve shirts underneath the dry suit. Even though the water was cold, we felt comfortable while we were snorkeling because of all the gear. The meeting place is a short walk to the parking lot. We were glad that we did the first snorkel of the day, because we did not have to wait in line to get into the water. The parking lot was also empty when we arrived but was full upon leaving, so I would recommend the earlier time slot. The water was extremely clear, and this was truly an unforgettable experience. Also, the pictures that they take are a bonus. They are included in the trip cost and are easy to download after your snorkeling experience. I highly recommend!

    The snorkeling was a great experience, we were fully kitted out and adequately briefed on the process. The tour itself was also very nice. However, in our group there were some people who were not able to follow the instructions of our guide, which is why everything took a long time. However, this was not due to our guide (Anais)! She gave us great information, gave great instructions and responded to questions very competently. She also took the necessary time for the other people and stayed calm, which I probably wouldn't have been able to do.
