We went snorkeling off of Isla Catalina (Playa Flamingo) and had a fantastic experience. We traveled with our six and nine year-old children and the snorkeling guide would dive to the bottom to retrieve starfish, conch and sea urchin for us to hold. David, our guide, was fantastic with the six year-old and gave him one-on-one attention. Since it was the first snorkeling trip for both kids, it went a long way in making them feel comfortable.
We saw a lot of beautiful fish and one turtle while snorkeling. While on the boat going to dive spot #2, we had two dolphins swimming in front of the boat, racing us. We also saw two devil rays chase fish on top of the water, and one even came out and did a back flip in the air. We also saw a sea lion.
The weather was perfect, the length of time for the trip was great, and having two different spots to dive/snorkel was a nice surprise.
There were plenty of staff and we felt well cared for on the trip. Highly recommended.
