The knowledge of our leader of the tour of not only whales but marine life was fantastic. He placed us in the middle of 10 males joisting for one female. The show lasted for 45 minutes with the males breaching and flapping and diving. Request Carlos as your guide.

We really enjoyed the birdwatching experience. Cynthia was very knowledgeable and easy going and very good at explaining to people of all different levels of experience about the birds we saw. We were a small group of just 4 people and the binoculars provided were of very good quality.

Tour was guided by an enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable guide. On the day of my tour the dolphins were being coy. We didn't have a chance to get close to them while snorkeling but saw many pairs breaching fro a distance. Los Arcos was fantastic. The water around the islets was filed with schools of brightly colored fish. An added bonus was the sighting of a manta and humpback whale. Bring a towel to dry yourself off after diving! Its gets a little cold out on the bay (at east in January).

I loved that it was a small boat. Our guide Cynthia was welcoming and knowledgeable and our boat captain Juan Carlos was professional. The swimming through the tunnel to hidden beach at high tide was scary but we all had adrenaline pumping on our way back. When your guide says “duck and swim” , do it! We got to see many birds and a Blue-footed booby chick! The snorkeling was great and they made special delicious salads for gluten-free people upon request. Saw a couple whales from afar while riding on the boat.

We hired a private boat to take our family of 4 (two adults and children aged 7 and 9) to look for dolphins and whales and go snorkling at Los Arcos. Our guide was named Margarita and she was amazing, very knowledgeable about the area and wildlife and very good with the kids. The kids loved it and we will definitely go again next year. 10/10.
