We saw a great variety of fish. They took us to two different spots to snorkel. They have the perfect balance of keeping you safe without making it feel restricted. My wife and I highly recommend these guys.

Good tour business and reliable. Carlos is an awesome guide and is a great guy. He's good with kids and made it fun and educational. Wouldn't know a better place to go to book your tours.
