Omar offers what has to be the most comprehensive, dynamic and interesting ocean tours available in Puerto Escandido. We booked a morning trip with Omar through our hotel Villa Lili. From 7 to 10:30 AM, he took us along the south coast of Puerto Escandido, before returning north. During the ocean safari, Omar knowledgeably and enthusiastically described the natural wonders and life of the sea, as well as the geography of the coastline and Puerto Escandido. He has worked in this business for over 20 years and simply loves his job. During our trip, thanks to his experience and navigational skills, we saw dozens of dolphins, sea turtles and a variety of birds. The highlight of the trip was to swim with a sea turtle -- which again was possible thanks to Omar's experience. Thank you Omar! Thor, Elsa, Kelly.

The best service I have ever received. This guy, Omar, does his best to satisfy you during the tour. The trip was amazing, we had the opportunity to see dolphins, turtles, fish and even swimming in open sea. I completely recommend Omar.

The water safari, was all I'd hoped for and more! We went onto the sea, early in the morning, so it was still quiet. The winds were blowing in the opposite direction from what is desired, but nonetheless we were able to spot all kinds of animals. The dolphins swam just below the water surface at the front of the boat so we could almost touch them. And after that we could get into the water ourselves to swim with the giant turtle. Omar is an excellent and enthusiastic guide, who's English is clearly understandable, even with the wind blowing. An amazing experience!

Such good value and so much fun!! 5 hours went so quickly. The service was excellent! I literally caught not just the bigger fish of my life but the 2 biggest fish of my life! Have been on many game fishing excursions which have cost a lot more money and have taken a lot more effort and was never as successful as our small group were that day with Omar. I would recommend this tour to anyone! I came to Puerto for surfing and caught some great waves while I was there but my Fishing day was the highlight!

Omar and Israel were both phenomenal guides on this "water safari" tour. We saw spotted dolphins and Golfina sea turtles (including several pairs mating). Omar and Israel were so knowledgeable about the sea life. Both speak excellent English and and made sure all of our questions were answered. They were truly committed to our comfort and ensuring an amazing experience. Be sure to go on a tour with them if you are in Puerto Escondido!
