Wonders in catch

It was a wonderful experience to see and feel the wonders of the sea. To be able to see all the beaches and the surfers. All those black fishes following us and at the end a couple of turtles saying goodbye to us. Wonderful

They were very attentive and super easy to each to letting us know parking was available and that a lot next to the marina took CC which was a big deal for us considering we didn’t know what to expect in terms of parking. From the moment we checked in until we got off it was just a great experience. The captions were so attentive, knowledgeable and engaging. We were about to see a few turtles and a ton of fish. Our daughter loved the boat ride. The coolest thing is the glass on the boat to see underwater. We loved every moment. It was a lovely experience with great tour guides. If you have young kids or don’t want to snorkel, I would recommend this boat ride.

Staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Went out of their way to look for sea turtles for us to see. They gave the kids fish food to feed to the fish gathered around the boat.
