Overall very positive experience with this company and their pricing. This was not a private tour but it was a group tour combining visitors from Playa del carmen and Cancun. We had a full van with 10 guests, everyone wearing their masks during the commute to the boat but in a very close proximity. once we got on a boat we could space out and maintain the necessary distance. The staff was very nice and accommodating. One downside, it was impossible to know how many people will be in the tour and our travel plans were complicated so we were accommodated in this group last minute. There is also very limited number of tours occurring in the area due to pandemic. everyone got to snorkel with the whale sharks and manta rays several times, 2 people at a time. These creatures are magnificent and although I felt conscientious about the disturbance we may have caused them with our presence, seeing these creatures was absolutely amazing.

Incredible excursion. Our tour guide, Nuria, was extremely knowledgeable and also took the best photos of us despite the sea being quite rough that day. Excellent trip and wonderful excursion company.

This was an epic day of Wonder. From start to finish everything was great. The tour Guide Moses was my favorite English speaking guid of my whole trip. His communication as to pick up and the days activities was excellent. He made every guest feel special all while tackling waves, fast swimming and large beautiful whalesharks. Moses was great at making sure we have pics and video of the day and cherished memory. He also is superior at the after tour communication receiving the pictures. The captains too were terrific doing there best in what seemed like waves larger than the sharks:)! A true day, memory and adventure I will truly cherish forever. Can’t say enough about the experience. Thank YOU

This tour is well worth your time and money! This unique, natural experience will be something my friend and I treasure forever. Eco tours was very professional and informative throughout the whole day and our guide, Moises, made us feel very safe in the water with the animals. We saw dolphins on the way to the whale sharks and when we arrived, we were surrounded by many whale sharks and manta rays, feeding in their natural habitat. They provided snacks, water, coke and sandwiches for lunch. We had 3 chances to jump in the water for around 5 minutes to swim with them and then traded off with other couples on the boat. After swimming with the whale sharks, we went near Isla Mujeres to relax and eat fruit. Moises got amazing pictures of us throughout the whole day and made sure we had time to see everything we wanted to see. All of the tour guides and captains were in positive spirits throughout the tour and made our experience amazing!

Se lots of whale sharks and manta rays. The seas were very rough, but the crew was really good with everyone. They did a great job. The guide Moisés was knowledgeable and very friendly. He picked us up, and did a great job explaining the rulesand what to expect. He also brought his camera and took very good pictures and videos, which I gladly purchased since I ran out of battery in my camera. Thank you Moisés for a great day
