Loved the snorkel/whale watching tour with Coral Dreams and Guillermo. He and his wife were excellent tour guides. We saw hundreds of fish on 2 snorkel stops and even came close to a spotted leopard ray! We were also lucky enough to wade with a "school" of lemon sharks. So neat! After much patience we also spotted 2 humpback whales out in the ocean. Wonderful experience!

I've booked a snorkeling trip with Guillermo every year for the past five years. Never have I been disappointed, but this last trip was by far the best ever. Guillermo took our group of four (plus one additional guest) to some familiar spots but this time he also also took us to an island to see the blue-footed booby birds. Love those blue feet! Guillermo then took us to a snorkeling spot I've never been before and wow! what a nice variety of fish. We swam with several good size schools of different species. This is also whale watching season in the Pearl Islands, so Guillermo finished our adventure with a bit of whale watching. On the way we encountered several dolphins. It took just a little while, but Guillermo found a mother and calf in one of the straights. They surfaced not 15 feet from our boat. A great ending to a great adventure.

Our family of five had a great snorkeling trip with Guillermo. He was on time, well-prepared and gave us a very nice snorkeling tour of 3 islands and a fun little excursion to a sand bar. Guillermo is well-qualified, knows the area extremely well and quite simply, a pleasure to be around. Also, he and his wife were very accommodating and stored our bags for a bit while we had lunch before we caught the return ferry.

My husband and I had 2 great adventures with Coral Dreams. The first was an ialand/snorkel tour. The boat captain took us on a slow tour around Contadora Island then out to Chapera & Mogo Mogo islands. We snorkeled near Chapera and went to walk the beach on Mogo Mogo where Survivor was filmed. On the way back around Contadora we stopped at another snorkeling spot. We got to see lots of fish and the walk on Mogo Mogo was fun for us Survivor fans. The cost was $50 per person including equipment.

The second adventure (2-tank dive $100) was diving... and was it ever an adventure! Because it was low season, I guess, my husband was the only diver (among four other snorkelers) that day and got a personal tour of two excellent dive sites from Guillermo, the owner. My husband returned from the trip and said that Coral Dreams saved his Contadora holiday. That's how great a time he had diving on a holiday that otherwise fell below his expectations. He saw lobsters, eels, rays, white-tip reef sharks, and the elusive octopus! Guillermo is a great guy, very funny, and his captain is also a really great guy.
