Just check the opinion of the rest of the people that have used Luz Maria and her services and you will realice how good she and her company are.

Luz and her team could not provide a better whale shark experience. From start to end. Started with a quaint typical harbor, Luz's knowledge and complete guidance, the swim with whale sharks, great home made eats, and a side tour and snorkel on the way back, followed up by pictures forwarded which were taken by Luz. Some trips advertise cheaper... More

What an amazing opportunity to swim with such magnificent creatures. Luz and her entire staff--Pancho, Mario, and Julian--made this a wonderful day. From prompt pickup at our hotel, helpful explanations enroute, and friendly boat staff and guides, it was all first-class. There were 12 people and 2 guides, so we had many opportunities to get in the water with the... More

Absolutely amazing time. Luz, Mario & Pancho are incredibly knowledgeable & friendly. Swimming with the whale sharks was an experience you won't forget. I can't wait to go back next year and do it again.

We cannot speak highly enough of this fantastic experience with Buceo Xtabay. In a trip of well over 5 hours we were taken out to the open sea by Pancho and his expert crew who clearly knew the best areas to find whale sharks. At times we were surrounded by them and it was an incredible experience to swim close... More

Amazing, stunning and very comfortable experience with our dive masters. Our 8 years old children will dream about this for years. Extremely well served, on time, eco-friendly, and reliable. Totally a must do, but with this people.

My boyfriend and I were originally torn about the idea of swimming with the sharks. One part of us really wanted to do it while another part was worried about the sharks being harrassed by so many tourists. However when I learnt that Luz is actually a Marine Biologist it helped my decision, I knew that she and her crew... More

We took the Whale Shark Tour with Luz today and it was amazing! We chose her tour because she's a marine biologist, departs from a port in Cancun away from all the other tourists, and includes wet suits, photos, and all fees in her price. We saw dozens of whale sharks today and were able to get very close and... More

First don't get put off by only being in the water for 10 mins at a time...you can go multiple times - Pancho and Mario are very accommodating and we could go in the water as many times as we wanted....these BIG FISH look slow and clumsy....they aren't. They are quite fast, even as they just "drift" along so you... More

Luz was right on time picking us up. Pancho and Mario were great on the boat! We saw 20+ whale sharks. Food was great! Would definitely tour with them again!
