The staff were all super friendly and knowledgeable. I was the only English speaker on a boat of Spanish-speaking people and my guide made sure to translate the information especially for me. We ended up seeing 4 beautiful dolphins on our way to and from Cano Island. The snorkeling itself was very good but the reefs were kind of deep,... More

We did the Marino Ballena whale & dolphin watching tour with Bahia aventuras a few days ago and we really appreciated the tour. We saw whales very close from the boat and plenty of dolphins. Dean, our guide, was so nice and took us to the caves after the whale watching. Very nice experience!

The tour guide and the captain of the boat were both extremely knowledgeable, friendly and courteous. The equipment (boat) was clean. Snacks of fresh watermelon and water was provided during the 3 hours excursion. You also had the opportunity to do some snorkeling. Very enjoyable experience.

We visited with our 9 and 7 year old and they really enjoyed the trip. The guides were knowledgable, kind and great fun. We saw a mother humpback with her calf. The humpbacks don't show much movement so the kids were disappointed as you only saw their fins and with binoculars their blow holes. Snorkelling at this time of year... More

The whale watching tour we had today with Dean was simply amazing. We saw a humpback whale and her baby for > 40 min and they came by themselves right under the boat. We also saw Dolphins playing around the boat and a turtle from quite far. The cave is also a nice place to see. Dean was extremely knowledgeable,... More

During the trip to Corcovado we saw two Humpback whales and a sea turtle. The coastline of the Corcovado is so nice. Our first hike took us into the jungle and... More

This is a several hour excursion in the ocean. We saw several whales - mothers with calves - and sea turtles - not to mention all of the birds. Guide was very knowledgeable and spoke English and Spanish for the passengers. Provided fruit and water on board.

This was a great trip! Had a great weather day and we were able to spot Humpback whales and dolphins before we even got to the island! Once we were on the island we spotted multiple different species of fish, two sharks, eels, turtles, and we could hear the whales calling underwater! The guides and captain of the boat were... More
