Had a great snorkeling trip with Captain Tony! He is kind and cautious, so the weather has to be just right before he will take you out. El Farito was the first stop and there were a lot of fish to see. We also went to the underwater museum (MUSA) with the statues but there weren't many fish or coral there. My wife really enjoyed the ride back along the coast from Punta Sur to Playa Norte. I highly recommend Captain Tony!

Captain Tony loves the ocean and the creatures that live there. That was very obvious in all the dealings we had with him. On the ride back we spoke of commercial operations that have all but wiped out various sea creatures, like the Conch. He had us swim out with the whale sharks 2 at a time to keep everything safe. I highly recommend looking him up on your next visit.

I don't know why anyone would book a whale shark adventure with anyone other than Capitan Tony. Tony is so knowledgeable and experienced that he made the entire day amazing and memorable. He was easy to communicate with prior to the excursion, and once we arrived, he made sure that every detail was taken care of. He and the crew of the boat were so conscientious of our surroundings and the sharks that the swim was wonderful. We stayed in the area for longer so that everyone on our boat had the opportunity to get in the water with the sharks at least four times. While other tours were clearly not following the same basic rules, our crew and Capitan Tony made sure that the passengers on the boat and the sharks were all respected. This is a bucket list item, so being with the best assured us that we would have a great experience. Following the swim, Tony and crew anchored at North Beach and served us fresh ceviche, guacamole, and fruit. It was such a great day, and one we will never forget. I will recommend Capitan Tony to everyone I know!
