As a family, we had a great tour with rosedelco. The ship is fine, clean, the captain solid and the assistant cool. He is a great chef too.
We sailed from the harbour to los tuneles and walked around. Our guide creates a discount in the review. Although he helped in finding sharks, seaturtles, boobies etc, he was speedy. He started with please stay together but he lost part of the group. He did not notice one stayed behind due to his speed. That one came back later, closer to the ship when seeing seaturtles.
On board we had a good lunch, fruit, snack. We did 2 snorkle tours one to see the sealife and one for the tunnels. Finally we did a walk to see the blue footed boobies.
On our way back we spotted sea lions, huge manta rays, penguins and caught a barracuda.
So a nice trip with some improvement opportunities.

We had a great time with Rosedelco. They are located close to the docks so after visiting their shop and trying on wet suits we were on the water quite quickly. Our main guide was a wealth of information, and on our first snorkeling stop he made sure we each had an opportunity to see seahorses and sharks sleeping in caves (in addition, we saw tons of rays and sea turtles). But the real highlight was the second stop, at Los Tuneles. I noticed we were the only boat there that day. I think it was because the surf outside of Los Tuneles was quite rough and many captains may not have had the skill/patience to navigate the entrance. I am glad our boat did, since this was a highlight of our ten-day trip - not only did we do more snorkeling (including seeing a giant eagle ray) but we hiked and saw boobies with their young. The guide really excelled here too, sharing his knowledge of the flora and fauna with us, Finally, food served was simple but tasty and more than filling. A great day!

we had a fabulous experience with this company. If youre a bit flexible with dates (ie if you have a few days) then you probably dont need advance reservations

A long but rewarding day snorkelling off the coast and in Los Tuneles. Instructor was a mine of information and managed to find us the hotspots to see sharks, turtles, seahorses, fish galore and even a playful sealion. A good experience, don't forget the suncream!!

We chose the trip to Los Tuneles with this company (after a quick google search). As you walk down the main street, there are countless companies, and this one seemed to have good ratings. The fellow in the office was pleasant and helpful (and spoke reasonable English). The boat seemed well maintained and the guide was enthusiastic. Crew was helpful. Los Tuneles is an amazing site - saw tons of sea turtles and snorkling in the tunnels was fantastic (although we did not have enough time in the tunnels). They did serve us lunch on board (you may want to mention something ahead of time if you are a vegetarian).
My only concern (shared with the company) was that there was a young (crying) baby on the trip and the baby's father was a non swimmer and the mother was an inexperienced snorkeler. This family really put a damper on the trip. We passed another tour who kind of laughed and said that they don't allow children younger than 6 years old. I'm hoping that they will take my advice and ensure there are no babies and non swimmers on future trips - better ask before you sign up.
