My friends and I booked this tour and were so pleased with the experience. Our guide and boat captain were so knowledgeable and friendly and made the experience so wonderful. The boat ride was exciting and fun and we felt safe and taken care of the whole tour. Upon arriving to meet our group our guide made clear that we may not see whales but that they try their best to make it happen, which they absolutely did. On our way to the boat we spotted a sloth, various birds, and Caimans, which are smaller crocodiles. During our tour we saw schools of dolphins, black tuna and even spotted a sea turtle. It was also very cool that we got to get off the boat and enjoy snorkeling where we saw a lot of fish and urchins and even an octopus.
Our guide was funny, personable, and knowledgeable, sharing many fascinating facts about the plants, animals, geology, and history of the area. He even showed us a cayman and her 14 babies before our departure. We saw humpbacks (one was a baby), dolphins, many marine birds, sea caves, and a sailfish. Then we went snorkeling and saw another array of marine creatures - including starfish, grouper, parrot fish, eel, sea urchin and many, many other beautiful fish. The whale watching tour exceeded my expectations. Thanks for a fun y’all!!
Our experience whale watching was amazing! We saw many dolphins, a manta ray, and a mother and baby whale during our tour, and even were able to snorkel near Ballena Island towards the end of our time with the tour and see lots of fish. They provided fresh fruit as a snack toward the end of the time as well, and it was definitely the best pineapple I’ve ever eaten. Henry was an amazing guide and we’d definitely recommend it to others!!
