Overview
Snorkel with whale sharks on a small-group tour that maximizes your time in the water. Since every boat is limited to just six snorkelers, you’ll get a more personal experience than a larger-group outing. It also means a smaller ratio of guests to tour leaders; that allows the guide to capture more of the photos and video footage that are included in the tour price.

This was the most beautiful trip ever !! Anna was the best guide and captain Eddy was the best captain ! I don’t even know what to say other than it was incredible. Anna knew so much about the surrounding area and about animals. I could feel her passion for the water and for the sea lions and nature. She even gave us our own biodegradable sunscreen to keep with us. Every second of the trip was so thoughtful on her part. She greeted us at the gate of the marina. She took us to the boat and introduced us to captain Eddy. She had snacks for us and told us about the area and some history about pirates. She took us snorkelling in the most incredible spot where we saw sea Lions and blue footed boobys! And we swam with the sea lions , they came to us and it was incredible. She reminded us that we are guests there, and it was so beautiful to see her love of nature, it was captivating and gave me so much awareness, it made me respect nature even more too. Then we went to Balandra which is so so magical and there they set up a beautiful lunch for us in front of the water with ceviche and burritos, they asked for food restrictions before hand, so we could eat all the yummy food ! and Eddy even helped some people who’s boat broke, get to their boat. They are both incredible individuals and we couldn’t have asked for better guides !! Honestly it was more than we even expected. Thank you Anna and captain Eddy for the best VIP expedience :) I highly highly recommend this incredible tour and place any time of year, because they will cater it to the time of year and have a beautiful experience for you no matter what !! Enjoy your incredible and unforgettable trip in advance. ✨✨✨🌊

I did the whale shark and sealions (at los islotes) combo tour. It was a magical day. We started with the sealions at los islotes. The water felt quite cold (even with the 3mm wetsuit they provide), but once you see the sealions you forget all about it. The sealions were abundant, playful and curious. They came very close, bit on some people's fins and played with our guide's buoy. I could have stayed with them all day but we spent a good amount of time with them. Our guide got some good videos of them swimming with us. We stopped at the most stunning beach for lunch (only accessible by boat). The water so turquoise and crystal clear (probably one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen). Lunch was very delicious. Then we went to find the whale sharks. Once we found one that was willing to host, we took turns jumping in the water to snorkel with him/her. We ended up staying with the same whale shark the entire time. He wasn't swimming too fast and it was easy to keep up with him. We took several turns snorkeling with him, it was a beautiful experience. Our guide also took videos of us with the whale shark, but unfortunately they didn't turn out as great because the water was pretty murky. I love that the guide takes videos but I recommend still bringing your own camera as well. The videos are shared through drop box after. We got drenched on the boat ride and it felt chilly but having the wet suit on helped. It was a magical day and I actually considered booking it a 2nd time but the price stopped me. Wish it was a bit more affordable. They do offer a 10% discount if you pay cash, but you still need to put a deposit down by credit card, which sucks because of the foreign transaction fees. Overall it was a magical day!

Did the All Islands Tour and the experience was amazing. Katrin the tour guide kept us engaged and did a superb job of guiding us and taking amazing under water pictures during snorkeling at Espiritu Santo islands. Katya was very prompt at responding to emails, and was very friendly in person. The best quality that I found about this tour company is that they are super organized. Love this company and highly recommend them!!!

Everything about our private tour with this company was perfect. Clear communication, easy payment, easy to meet up with. Our guide Katrin was friendly and very informative. They set up a wonderful lunch for us on a beautiful beach. Could not be happier or recommend them more.

I loved every minute of the whale shark tour! They were informative, it was only 6 of us so we got ample time and multiple jumps with the shark. Pictures and video were included as well. They also went out of their way to set up transportation for us! I would choose them over & over again! very organized and fun great people!! thank you again!! Gina & Daniel
