Marietas islands are amazing, we saw a bunch of whales (in March) and even dolphins, and the place is beautiful, however, other companies looked better equipped when you got there other boats had more fun things.

The photographer we hired was part of the tour and gave us a CD with 275 excellent photos. Maybe a representative from the tour company you patronized can help you out.
