Our guide was great and we had three long swims with the Sharks. Was a great experience. I was worried we wouldn't get to see any this late in the season but we saw them right away. Well worth it!!

Everything was well organized, the guides were very informative and fun to be around. The whale sharks were very cool to see. Definitely will recommend this to other friends/family that come down to La Paz.
