It was a truly amazing experience. We were able to see multiple dolphin pods in a bay area as well as a number out at sea that played in the wake of our boat. The reef they took us to was teeming with wildlife including a number of sea turtles and we were granted a picturesque moment from the boat towards a beautiful valley on the island. The “cherry on top” was seeing the aforementioned dolphins in open water and allowing them to play in our wake and witness first hand their majesty and seeing a whale shark lingering near the surface and jumping in to be able to see its entirety.
The check-in process was smooth, just make sure you have your covid documents handy. There are clean, large bathroom stalls for changing beefier and after. On the boat there is a main storage compartment for backpacks and extras items. Each “seat” has a mesh bag for storage as well. The boat is small but allowed for excellent maneuverability around the marine life. Jenna and Alison were amazing!!!! Jenna, the captain, found a pod of sleeping spinner dolphins. Next she found us a pod of speckled dolphin. Our last Snorkel place was full of turtles and a variety of fish.
Our experience was so fun, exciting, and educational. The enthusiastic tour guides made the trip extra fun and special. We got to see many rare false killer whales and a few big pods of spinner dolphins, which we also got to swim with. Would highly recommend it!
great tour guides, Jenna and Veronica, took us to the right place to see dolphins and turtles!!!
The guides were great, very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Would highly recommend!
