“Rough waters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

The water was quite rough the day we snorkeled nearby. It was also quite rainy. If the weather was nice it would have been much better but you never know about the weather. My advice, take dramamine and you will have a great experience.

I went on a snorkeling tour. Beautiful water. There were huge schools of fish. The guide was very good. My husband swam near the beautiful beach.

“So so”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

They had closed the island for a while for maintenance. Now, one can still visit the island, but there a re no toilets nor bathhouses that visitors can use. Still a gorgeous site, we had a blast snorkeling, saw tons of fish and the island is just awesome.

“A must for vistors going to Bahia Drake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

The island was off limits at the time of our visit but the snorkling was great and we witnessed false orcas, humpbacks, dolphins and others during our trip. The lunch on Playa de San Josecito was a treat!
