“Snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

It is amazing the amount of fish that you could see, many different types. Guides help you to go the best places. Some people may get dizzy due to the movement of the boat in the way to the island

“Great trip - unforgettable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Wonderful boat ride, great snorkeling and worth getting to this little natural island.
If you expect just nature and hundreds of hermit crabs, then you will be delighted.
If you expect much more, you better choose another trip.
We combined the trip from Drake Bay to Cono Island with Whale watching and after some negotiations, the agency combined it and we all enjoyed it.
And actually we saw whales and dolphins :-)

“Superbe snorkeling tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Hello,
We did a snorkeling tour with Jose while we were in Drake Bay. We had an amazing time. Saw whales, and dolphins following our boat when we were on our way to Canoe island. We saw lots, lots of fish, a big turtle, white tip shark (not me but my husband and friend thank god) that are not dangerous. We did a lot of snorkeling tour in different place (Cozumel, Cuba, Punta Cana, etc) and this one was our best snorkeling so far.
