“Snorkel excursion”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

The day we went for the la tortuga island snorkel excursion was a gorgeous weather day. However, there wasn't much to see when snorkeling and the beach was average. I was 4 months pregnant at the time and would not recommend the boat ride to anyone more that 3 mo pregnant or anyone with back problems. If you have motion sickness, forget it altogether. The ride was fast and rough, and that was on a day with perfect weather. Overall, if you are looking for a change in scenery, the la tortuga island may be a good option.

Zumba did a great job with our Tortuga tour! Professional and trustworthy! They look extra time with our group even spending more time with us.

“Isla Tortouga”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Great snorkeling, and the guides are awesome! Was totally worth the money. A wonderful day trip. It was clear water and the fish were everywhere. You can rent chairs to sit on at the island. Lunch was to die for!

My niece and I used ZumaTours for our snorkeling trip to Tortuga in part because they were the only company to quickly respond to my email inquiry (the others took over a week). And the price was reasonable for what we got. Our first stop was nice, but there wasn't a lot to see. However, the second location was amazing. A large number of sea creatures, but there were also a large number of land creatures as well. I know this is something they can't control, but be aware, you won't be alone. Lunch was very tasty. The reason I didn't give an excellent rating is that the time on the island after lunch was way too long (2 hours). There is very little to do and the water is too cloudy to do any more snorkeling. Also the guide did not instruct customers to not touch and pick-up sea creatures, somthing I believe is important to the health of the animals.
