I absolutely recommend anyone to book this tour with this agency! It was the best day ever. Everything was perfect: from the hotel pickup, to the organization, to the fun and all the staff guys! Vasyl and Alana took care of my hotel pickup / drop-off, everything perfect! Very kind and helpful in everything! While in the tour itself, having been divided into groups also for the various languages, I spent the day with Katia, Stecchir, Perla, Levis capitan teacher! Fantastic all: music, fun, dancing, lots of laughs! All very engaging! As for the places: the starting point is beautiful, with a buffet breakfast on a beautiful beach, wonderful Isla Contoy, a little paradise to be enjoyed to the full. Snorkeling and finally Isla Mujeres, which I personally did not like, being too crowded and besieged by mass tourism, but perhaps coming from Isla Contoy the comparison was inevitable.

This was an exceptional outing in every way. Our guide, Ricardo was THE BEST! The boats are a blast to drive and this is absolutely the best snorkeling experience I've ever had. There were so many beautiful fish and the coral reefs were fascinating. The tour was the perfect amount of time (about 2 hours) and a bargain for what we got. We loved the photos and drone video as well. That was a super awesome surprise to see when we got back to the dock (and worth every penny).

Wonderful experience. Surprisingly spent a good amount of time swimming with the turtles, also got to see stingrays. The cenote experience was also very memorable, we got lucky and went at a time where we had them completely to ourselves, these cenote’s are way cooler than a fully open one. The organisation was excellent and our tour guide Francisco was the best! My boyfriend developed a man crush.

Amazing tour with a fantastic guide George, loved the speed boat and the snorkelling. Very professional and a fun trip

Very good guide, he helped us all the time and was on the lookout, excellent price-quality, exceeded expectations
