    We had Lina Gaus as our tour guide and she was awesome! She was very ambitious and kind! The tour in general was really good and we saw everything there was to see! Would definitely recommend it!

    Clamente was detailed and entertaining when giving instructions, we felt very comfortable with the diving course beforehand. Gabe was our guide in the reef and she was patient, fun, and kept a close eye on us even while being able to point out the wildlife. Lots of coral, fish, and underwater statues. I also saw a type of reef shark, octopus, barracuda, eels, a dead giant crab, and more.
    We got to swim in underwater tunnels within the coral! Everything was done very systematically and safe, this was my first time diving but I felt I was in good hands. My suggestion is to bring extra towels and an extra 10 bucks for the wetsuit if you get cold easy.

    Our dive experience itself was fantastic and highly recommend it. The instructor (Javiar) was awesome and the dives were each ~40 min and we dived once to see the underwater statues (MUSA) and the second dive to see the manchones natural reefs.
    All diving equipments were included (minus suits which you technically don't need!), the boat ride and water also included.

    Thank you for the super great experience! Since we have never dived before, Brian explained everything to us and in the pool before. He was very calm and understanding. Rafa then took us with his boat to the beautiful places and helped us with the equipment. We felt really comfortable and had an amazing experience. We have seen turtles, moray eels, stingrays and many colorful fish.

    Thanks guys for everything! You were really great!

    I booked a couple of excursions through Camila at the office just outside Hilton Motto, Tulum. She was fantastic from start to finish, even keeping in contact on the morning of the excursions to make sure everything was going to plan.

    Id highly recommend this company and will most definitely use if I go back

    We did this experience as a family of 4, the children being 11 and 13 were perfectly capable of engaging with the whole experience.
    Communication was good during the booking process. The tour itself involved approximately 30 mins speed boat ride to where the whale sharks were. The boat was comfortable and suitable for 10 passengers plus a guide and a captain. Note there is no toilet on board so use the rest rooms at the checking in area before you board. Our guide Manuel was friendly and helpful and keen to show us the best views of the animals.
    You are allowed into the water 2 at a time with the guide. You get 2-3 minutes viewing each time.
    All the equipment was provided and was good quality.
    Breakfast at the port consisted of cake, banana and yogurt and a glass of juice or coffee.
    After the whale experience we had the opportunity swim in crystal clear water near a beach on Isla mejeres. We were not allowed onto the beach despite being told we would be during the booking process. Lunch was provided on the boat and was tasty fish cervice with crackers and the option to have a ham and cheese roll too. There was a good supply of soft drinks, water and beer, all included. The boat also had plenty of shade when anchor was down as they deployed a large sun shade.
    Our guide took video and photos during the trip. They are of good quality but, and it’s a big but, they are extremely expensive and added an additional 165USD to our bill.
    Swimming with whale sharks is undoubtedly a once in a lifetime experience and I’d thoroughly recommend Cancun whale sharks tour. It doesn’t come with a small price tag so be prepared for a big bill. I’m sure none of the other operators are cheaper though and some were most certainly more expensive.

    Wow what a wonderful day we had. We decide to skip Musa and do 2 reef dive and got very lucky and saw some very interesting sea life (we even saw a small shark)

    Nick service was beyond our expectation. Great communication and everything was A+++

    Vincense (sorry if I misspell your name 😂) was an Incredible guide and made my wife confient for her first dive.

    Make sure to bring a snack or have a “decent” lunch before cause on the return I feel sick maybe cause of the sun but a snack in between dive would probly have help (Nick provide us with a snack at the end of both dive 😁)

    I would recommend this trip to anyone everything was perfect for our first dive.

    Thank you
    Dave and Catherine

    Our family had so much fun during this excursion. Danny and Jesus were especially kind to us! We loved their constant spirit and energy, and especially their humor and their genuine nature. Thank you to the both of you for making this such a memorable experience for all of us! We really appreciate it :)

    I can't stay enough, I used them for 5 hours each night for 5 days, excellent service better than my 5 star hotel car service was like, driver was professional, car is super clean you sit and you feel like you are on a Emirates First Class. Amazing will always use them next time I land in Cancun.
