I honestly cannot say enough good things about the sweet and wonderful Alphonse (and his wife Olga which I wish we met in person!), I am so grateful to have found him when i was looking for snorkeling, first i picked them because their prices...More
Seriously, DO NOT book with anyone else! Alphonse is BY FAR the most passionate about his job of any tour guide I’ve ever experienced...and we travel a lot. We did the Hol Chan and Shark Alley...just incredible and Alphonse somehow makes himself heard UNDER WATER....More
Alphonse is the best guide on the island! We ended up booking two tours and they were amazing. First, he teaches you about properly wearing your mask and snorkel. He cleans the lenses and makes sure they fit perfectly before you get into the water....More

All the reviews on here are completely accurate. It was my first time snorkeling..ever! and these guys both took care of me. I slightly panicked and had to learn how to breathe using the snorkel. They were totally sufficient in teaching me and getting me...More
We had a fantastic trip with Lil Alphonse. Alphonse and Adolfo clearly love what they do. Their obvious love for sharing the beauty of the barrier reef was evident in every part of our experience with them. They have a wonderful ability to make you...More

The cost was $45 per person (5 adults in our group). Our excursions were 3 hours in length each day total (10 minutes travel by boat each way, and more than 2.5 hours diving/snorkeling). Alphonse and his nice assistant picked us up at our resort (Xanadu), and took care of everything - even had water & drinks for us. First day we visited Hoi Chan and Shark Ray Alley - pretty close to each other (5 minutes apart by boat). Next day, we went to Mexico Rocks (maybe a 15 minute boat ride). All three sites were spectacular and we saw 40 species of fish, urchins, moray eels, lobsters, turtles, sharks, and lots of beautiful coral and other sea creatures & plants. Take an underwater camera if possible - we had an inexpensive GoPro, and captured tons of video and photos. Lil Alphonse has been guiding dives for many years (his dad did before him) and he has excellent relationships with the resorts, the reef managers/rangers, and other guides respect him as 'their mentor'! They dive with you, and narrate/point out all of the fish and other creatures/sites.
