“Great Snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Went with Lil Alphonse and he knows his fish and had a wonderful time. I even held a 7 ft nurse shark and swam with it and when I go back I shall do this tour again.

“Like being in an aquarium”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Best dive on the island. Saw lots of rays and sharks along with the most fish we saw on the entire trip. Good dive and only 30 foot max depth so a good long dive.

Try and get a group of no more than 8 people. We had to pick a window of good weather between annoying wind and rain, but it was well worth the wait.

This was an excellent snorkel location on the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Lots to see and terrific guides who took us from San Pedro.

“Great Snorkling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

It was my first time snorkeling and WOW, I think I was able to do it in one of the most beautiful places there are to do it. It wasn't overly crowded and the life below water was breath taking. Will definitley be going back for a second trip.
