The experience was something amazing. Worth every cent. The animals are majestic and to see them in their natural habitat was epic. I went about a week ago and still talk about it to anyone that will listen. Will definitely go again. Tour guides were great. TAKE THE SEA SICKNESS PILL. We had some guests get sea sick and messed up their experience. Thank you Jose for the info. Very knowledgeable guides.

It was a unique and breathtaking experience. Our guide Eliahs and the whole crew looked after us very well, explained everything, were very well organized and always with a smile on their faces. I was there alone and felt safe and picked up the whole time.

This was possibly a once in lifetime activity for us. It was absolutely thrilling to jump from boat and swim along with a whale sharks! They are truly wondrous!

We loved our guide Ricardo. My daughter Brittney was able to have a great experience for her 18th birthday with the whale shark

Great experience. We were even able to swim with a manta ray and dolphins!
