This was my second time using them to go to Cayo Levantado. The experience was not as good as the first time. Website has this excursion at 9:30am, we arrived on time, however we had to wait 45 minutes to departure since they were waiting for a local group. Once we were in the boat and ready to go, there was an issue with the motor, so we had to go back and switch boats. The person who seems to be in charge was not very professional receiving feedback, he didn’t care about the delay. Cayo Levantado is a beautiful place

We had a great experience. We were very lucky and we were able to see several whales very close to our boat. Our guide, Ileana, is a veterinary and she explained very well all the details as well as some fun facts. Everything was very well organized even having booked in the last minute. It’s also important to add that the skipper and the team were very respectful and followed all the rules not to disturb the whales. We had a lot of fun! Strongly recommend it!

Great experience with an awesome crew. Whale watching was very exciting. We saw three whales swimming and jumping, one of the most amazing thing I’ve seen in my life.

I did the tour to los haitises national park and the. Cato levantado Within minutes of being in the boat we were offered drinks - rum and coke/sprite, with a disposable plastic cup. Once drunk the cups were collected and then another round of drinks with a another cup. During the whole trip I counted we were offered drinks, with a new cup each time, 6 times. There were about 50 people on board, this equates to approx 300 cups per trip per day that will end up in landfill or the ocean. Surely one cup will do and just tell people to hold on to it, or better yet use non disposable cups that can just be reused. This is a tour to a nature park, the park was beautiful but there was no respect for nature. Music blaring from the speakers, the guide loved to talk a lot and very loud. He also pointed out a bat saying this is a nocturnal animal whilst pointing the torch light at it and making noises to try get it to move. At one of the caves were were given another arm band (in addition to the armband already received for being on the tour) so yet more waste is generated. Cayo levantodo - completely over run with tourism. And again no respect for nature. Local with live conch shells and shelling them right there to sell the shells to tourists..and the tourist were buying them! No snorkelling, as reed appears destroyed, or maybe I was there on a bad day? I asked the guide where to snorkel and he just pointed at the whole beach saying there! As a tourist I am becoming more and more aware of the impact we have on nature and as such I choose very carefully the activities I support. With the waste generated on this trip and the lack of respect for nature I cannot support this company. On return from cayo L we were lucky enough to see some whales, the boat driver immediately went straight to them with no respect for distance and of course the whales then left. On re surfacing the boat driver again made a bee line right to them instead of just keeping a distance and enjoying them.

From the moment we were greeted by a professional veterinarian trained in the life of whales and through every moment, the trip was spectacular. Our captain obviously had a keen eye to spot the whales at a distance. He got us close enough for fantastic views (and pictures) while respecting that the whales are natural creatures. The guide was tremendous. She imparted a lot of knowledge without overdoing. She was great with questions. And super pleasant. We had a tremendous experience and would recommend them wholeheartedly.
