          Overall good experience, amazing to see the shark
          A very cool once in a lifetime experience, if you’re up for an adventure and okay with the ecotourism aspect. Santi, hector, Daniel, Carlos, and Euri were fantastic. The captain (Daniel I think) was incredibly skilled. Definitely recommend using their transport to pick you up. The boat is small and doesn’t have much in it, but that’s because that’s what’s allowed around the sharks. You can’t wear sunscreen (even reef safe) so wear long sleeves and a hat—you’re on the boat with limited shade for 5-8 hours. There’s no bathroom but they will stop the boat so you can pee in the water. Our motor broke while out on the water but they fixed it quick. It’s definitely an adventure, and if you’re prepared for that, you’ll love it. Be prepared to be seasick—you’re out on the open ocean in a tiny boat. We looked for the shark for about 5 hours before finding one, and a lot of other boats came to it too. The guides did a good job of following the rules about interacting with the shark in some ways (we can’t touch it, 2 people in the water at a time with a guide) but there were many (5-10) boats around the shark, speeding around it, people jumping in and out of the water, etc. it was feeding and didn’t seem terribly stressed, but it was definitely swimming away from us and it’s hard to keep a good distance from it when you’re in the water with it. We felt a little bad for it. Overall, a good experience and it’s a good way to support the economy with sustainable ways other than fishing, and raise awareness of the whale sharks, but I wish there had been a few more protections followed in regard to the number of boats around the shark. The stop at isla Mujeres was great, food was great, guides and sailors were caring and knowledgeable.

          Excellent Bird Watching Tour!
          We had a very excellent bird watching tour with Ludo! He helped us to see and identify over 50 birds and took pictures of them (and us) to remember our trip by. The breakfast in the jungle was delicious. Would absolutely recommend Ludo and EcoColors!

          Cancellation Policy
          I booked a private whale shark tour with some friends and there was a mix up and we had to cancel the tour. Being refunded when making travel plans can sometimes be troublesome. EcoColors was very understanding and refunded my money in full promptly. For this reason, even though we didn't do a tour, I felt they deserved a good review.

          Snorkeling with Sea Turtles
          Our guide was wonderful. They led us around in the ocean finding sea turtles, rays, and other sea creatures to observe. If you do not want to take a boat and be in open water, this tour works. After our ocean visit. We went to two cenotes. The only request I would have is that the guide should have an underwater flashlight, just in case the lights go out in the cave. Otherwise, zero complaints! It was a perfect day!

          A fascinating and fruitful morning of tropical bird watching near Cancun
          This tour was wonderful! I went on an all-morning birdwatch with EcoColors Tours., which I arranged through Thomas Moore at my resort. They picked me up at 5:45am from my Cancun resort, included snacks and a break, and returned me to the resort around noon as promised. We drove about 45 minutes to Puerto Morelos, then went inland to the jungle areas near the Cenotes where the underground water is ideal for a profusion of tropical birds. Our guide, Luga, was very knowledgeable and spotted 47 species of birds for us. 28 of these were "lifers" (or first timers) for me, so the expedition was a huge success. Toucans! Motmots! Trogons! So many colors and types that I had never heard of. Our guide was personable and attentive to the group's needs. His English was quite good except for the pronunciations of names of bird species that I had not heard of, which he kindly spelled out. The group size will vary depending on who signs up that day; our tour was just me and one other couple, so we enjoyed a personalized and tailored experience.

          The day was so amazing. Awesome crew. Scarlett in particular was a huge help and great presence. She helped make our honeymoon very special.

          Traveler be advised ...
          Unfortunately we were one of the very few groups who did not get to see a whale shark. While I very much understand they can't guarantee anything when it comes to wildlife, it would have been nice if the tour company offered a coupon for a free trip in the future or at least a reduced rate. I did want to explain to people that you will be traveling about an hour or hour and a half OUT TO SEA - this is not an excursion that is close to any shore. You do go out with a group of boats. Expect rough seas - you're in a pretty small boat. On our trip I think the crew might have been the only people who were not experiencing some degree of sea sickness. I was very sick despite taking dramamine. I asked if we could stop so I could get in the water and cool off and help the seasickness but they did not want to stop trolling and looking for the whale sharks. After several hours of looking for them someone asked for a potty break (the ocean being the bathroom) and for that we stopped. So... apparently needing to pee trumps having to throw up (sorry for the bluntness). My husband did better but also "fed the fish". My husband would go again. I highly doubt I would go.

          Overpriced boat ride.
          This was basically an overpriced boat ride that you can see a whale shark for literally a few seconds as you compete with other people. When getting to the meeting spot it took about almost an hour to get on the boat. I took a motion pill before getting on the boat but didn’t expect to take about 2 and half hours to find the shark so by the time we find the shark I’m already sick and nauseous so be warned if you’re not used to being on a boat. The entire event is rushed as there was 10 other boats filled with people going after the same shark. The equipment provided is heavily used and they don’t bring enough different sizes for everyone so chances are you might have to settle for something that is either too tight or too loose. After everyone gets rushed into the water twice, it’s another long ride to a beach that you’re there for about 30 mins. I thought I could at least look towards the food but even that wasn’t what I expected it’s literally one sandwich and some chips with guac that came from a bag that was being shared amongst everyone and multiple hands in it. Do not recommend doing this event, talking to other people that participated in this they mentioned how they got to see other animals at a fraction of the price at other places and how it was a lot more fun compared to this.

          Once in a lifetime experience!
          Absolutely amazing experience! Our guides Tito and Omar were extremely professional and knowledgeable, bringing us to multiple locations to dive with the sharks. After diving we stopped by some fishing boats the captain owned to pick up a freshly caught fish that they cooked into ceviche for us within half an hour of it being caught while we swam off the coast of Isla Mujeres. You can’t miss this if you’re in the area!

          Awesome experience. Guides went above and beyond to make sure we got quality whale shark time, and the fresh ceviche onboard was the best I’ve had on our trip. Highly recommended!

          You have to remember it is a small boat, it can get rough, you can get sick. Be prepared and have travel sickness tablet
          Mix thoughts about this. They were on time in picking us up and dropping us off. Unfortunately we did not see a whale shark and only got into the water to pee and then snorkel around some bleak old coral at the Island. Lunch was nice. It is good they only take small numbers. Apparently the whale sharks may not have been around because the rain overnight pushed their food lower so that is where the whale sharks could have been. We could have spent that money on something else if we had a crystal ball and knew we were not going to see it. But that is the chance you take. Also the company does not offer a discount for a rebook. We were separated from the same tourists that we arrived with and had to wait till they returned. Lucky for us it was not long, but have heard of some horror stories of the time people have had to wait for others to return after the company separated them. My tip would be look for a company that offers a discount or a free rebook if you don't see it, because it is a lot of money for a bumpy ride in a small boat, getting sun burnt and watching people spew into the water. You have to remember it is a small boat and you really hit the waves and the bow drops. Don't recommend this boat if you have sore back. The waves can get high and when you go over it the boat goes down and it can be a real 'jarring' to your body. We were annoyed a family of 3 Adults after traveling about 2 hours, felt sea sick and wanted us to return. They asked 3 times and it made everyone feel terrible we were saying no. The host asked everybody is it is our wish and of course we all said no! You have to accept, this is not a cruise. It will be rough. Have travel sickness tablets before going.

          One week of activities (whales shark, Akumal, …)
          I loved my week in Cancun. Very happy to have chosen the Eco Colors tours company. Excellent service all the way, from pick-up to finish. We had Alex as our guide: very concerned about the environment, professional and attentive to our needs. For sea trips, it takes 90 minutes by boat to get to the area where the whale sharks are found. During our 2 sea trips, we were able to swim with manta rays and a whale shark. We were also able to observe some dolphins and flying fish. Our day in Akumal was also exceptional, we were lucky enough to have a private guide. Large number of turtles visible from close quarters and also eagle rays, pretty corals and other colorful fish. Our day in Los Morelos, the weather conditions were rather gray and there were waves. We were still able to go on a snorkeling trip accompanied by a local guide. Afterwards, we went to swim in a Cenote. We had a great, busy week !
