Professional dive master but very bad service , they said their boat was out for maintenance so they put us on a "panga" boat that didn't even had a basic roof !

Great trip with Margarita, the "Turtle Whisperer". Saw dolphins, dozens of whales with their calves, and a leather back turtle. Margarita was a great host and guide, providing information about the area, the whales, and the other creatures that make their home in Banderos Bay.
