We booked with Pico Sport for whale watching on the first day of expected clear weather after several days of bad weather. The group was large and was split in two: the first group went on a RHIB, and we went on a hard boat. As we went out and the ocean was very rough and practically everyone on board... More

We went out to princess Alice for the day and had fun. Our guide was fantastic and let us snorkel around with the mantas at the end of the dives. It is a pricey dive, but it was a good time. My only complaint is having to pay for an additional rental to do the check dive- if you going... More

We (a family of 6, two parents and children aged 16-22) went on a short kayaking trip with pico sport. It was short because it was terrible. Pico sport were rude and unprofessional. We were asked to pay the full amount beforehand 'incase we didn't come back' - I thought they were joking, as the trip progressed it increasingly felt... More

It is a very interesting comment. How can somebody judge about our whale watching, dolphin snorkeling or shark diving if he never did this with us. This clients did a kajak tour and the agreed route was indeed a bit wavy. One boat had a leak what must have happened before boarding. It was the boat of a volutneer guide... More

The guide, Francisco was excellent and my son even got a chance to do some snorkel diving during a few stops along the way. Highly... More

NO DECOMPRESSION ACCIDENT !!!! I want to point out that the check dive was done with an experienced instructor with every diver that dives with us. We check the boyency of the diver and the confidence before we confirm the deep blue diving. There are divers with more than 50 dives that do not know how to dive and there... More
