This was by far the best excursion of my holiday. Buceo Xtabay arranged everything very well. And if u go to the state Quintana Roo in Mexico you have to go :)

Amazing experience. Great hosts, one of which is the business owner. Knowledgeable, safe, environmentally conscious, friendly. Good food. Be advised that there is no running water at the put-in/take out site, so no freshwater rinse afterward, and toilets are primitive.

Luzma, Mario and Pnacho took us out for a great day to visit the whalesharks. I was impressed with their technical knowledge about the whales and also with their efforts towards conservation of this beautiful species. They were very cognizant of the rules of snorkeling with the sharks and of course general safety of us tourists. Also, the lunch and... More

Everything about this tour was the best it could be. The education, the care and the food - everything was spot on. I heard people complaining about other tours only giving small amounts of food, not snacks and not enough drinks. That was certainly not our experience! There was plenty of fresh, homemade food, and drinks! Luz & Mario went... More

I had a great time. I felt the guides were both knowledgable and conservation minded. Where other boats seemed to break the rules our boat did the best job to follow them. They made us feel safe and taught us about the whale sharks. I would definitely go again with this group or do other things in the area with... More

Luz, Mario, and Pancho gave us a wonderful adventure, seeing the beautiful whale sharks, dolphins, turtles, fish, and coral. The island bird preserve was beautiful and we even got to see pink flamingos. They provided an excellent lunch and snacks and took great care of us. Thanks Luz!

Wow, what a trip! I have to say, we met a great person in Luz Maria! Our day started off when my husband and eldest son, who were going on a different tour to Tulum for the day, were in our hotel lobby waiting for their bus. My other son and I, who were going on the whale shark tour,... More

Luz picked is up at 7:00 AM from our hotel. There were 11 snorkelers in our group. Luz drove us an hour to a remote harbor north of Cancun on Isla Blanca. We then hopped into our smallish dive boat for another hour's journey on the water. The ride out was choppy and the 150 horses that captain Pancho (Luz's... More

Luz and her team are simply the best. This was a well-oiled machine. Their team of three did everything possible to make our day an absolute delight. Other reviews (like Blake J) explain the day perfectly. Even if you have to go out of your way to use Luz and her team, they are worth it. A quick note, Luz... More

If you are looking for a company to take you on a Whale Shark tour then STOP and look no further! Book now with Buceo Xtabay, you will not find a better team! Our experience with Luz (marine biologist), her husband and boat skipper Francisco, and guide Mario was simply fantastic! I booked with them for my family of 4... More
