Wow!.. great time on the water, very personal service. I went along with 2 other couples and felt like part of the family. The trip started a little later than all the others so there was no 'crowd' in some of the mooring locations. A great decision to avoid the mob! It was a very clean boat, and rigged for safety of the passengers! A trailing guide was always prepared with a PFD should a guest need a rest on the water... I had not seen such thoughtfulness in other operators. Fruit snacks prepared on board & scraps NOT discarded over the side showed the ultimate respect they share for their island. They shared some personal family and island lore, and came to join me and my friends for refreshment after the tour. Very professional and personal.. wish I could do it every day!

My snorkel trip with Art and Kat was the second trip that week for me. Art and Kat make the outing so very comfortable and enjoyable that I would sign up for another round the next time I make it to Caye Caulker. Art is very knowledgeable and shared just the right amount of details. The pace was relaxed and would be perfect for even the most timid snorkelers. I liked the attention paid to safety and consideration for the environment.

Artie and Kat are fantastic and obviously really know what they are doing. We originally wanted to do a trip to Hol Chan but no one else signed up so Artie gave us a discount to go on his manatee watching and snorkel trip the next day. On our way to look for manatees we came across a school of dolphins and Artie encouraged us to quickly jump in with them. The 3-5 dolphins circled around us playing games with us and coming back to stay with us for over 30 minutes. It was by far the coolest part of our whole vacation. After the dolphins, Artie took us to the manatee preserve by Swallow Caye and we were able to get a good view of a large manatee that circled our boat until we finally decided to leave him. Artie was very knowledgable about manatees and answered all of our questions. We followed this up with a fantastic lunch provided by Anda de Wata on a small island. The food consisted of grilled fish, lobster, rice, veggies, and rum punch. After lunch we did two more snorkel stops on the Caye Caulker reef, one with Artie guiding us around the coral and pointing out various fish of interest and a second stop at shark-ray alley. I can't recommend Anda de Wata enough and am so happy that we decided to do our snorkel trip with them. We were told that we would get an email with a photo of us and the opportunity to buy more pictures that Artie took during our trip but we have yet to receive that. I can't comment yet on the quality of the photographs but I look forward to seeing that soon.

Hello, Thanks for the great review! We would love to try and re-send some photos for you you to enjoy:) If you can do us the favor and email us at andadewata@msn.com, we will make sure to send those photos off to you. Unfortunately at times with all the clients writing down their email addresses we often find it difficult to decipher the correct email and get a bounce notification of failure to deliver.

You have our sincerest apologies, and we look forward to hearing from you so we can send those photos off soon!

Anda de Wata Tours is a very personable, professional and freindly company. We highly recommend the Tubing around the island (with rum punch, of course) was relaxing, fun and a great way to spend an afternoon with family and friends...
We also enjoyed the 1/2 day snorkel it was really great too. Lots of action under that water!
