Great tour! Very informative guides who were personable, knowledgeable and funny. Highlight of the tour were the Humpback whales (Mothers and Babies) - saw SO many of them. They all put on a show for us. Water was murky when we snorkelled, so not as much to see as I had hoped. Overall, amazing day!

Water was choppy so the group decided to skip snorkeling and do more whale watching. Saw lots of breaching whales in Bahia Banderos. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.
Great experience!

Edgar and Manuel were very friendly and explained with much detail about the whales, the birds and fishes of the islands. We were lucky to observed the whales jumping and hiting the tails on the water. It was spectacular.
Un poco rápido , comentario que habría algun snack y bebidas y no ofrecieron algo así. Y pues lo de avistamiento de ballenas depende más del guía y la disposición para ir hacia dónde están.
