    Fantastic experience. Nice boat trip along the shore and some beatiful rocks. Then snorkeling between a lot of fish. Ending on a splendid desolate beach with lots of fruit and a sandwich. Very nice crew.

    One of the best tours I’ve ever been on! Our guides went out of their way to find wildlife for us to enjoy, & truly made this a once in a lifetime experience. 10/10 would highly recommend!!

    Saw many beautiful blue fish and coral. The guides were great and the boat ride was smooth. We had fresh fruit on a private beach after snorkeling, which was beautiful.
    Nice informal snorkeling and beach tour.
    Herman_V, May 2022
    Nice informal atmosphere, on a small boat to the islands. Two snorkeling stops and a fantastic beach stop for lunch and softdrinks. Guide Juanito knows a lot about nature in the area.
    The boat was too small...
    valentina_P, May 2022
    The boat was too small without a sun awning. After the half hour boat tour the time spent on the island is too long (4/5 Hours) without umbrellas and deck chairs .
    Many pelicans.
    John_R, May 2022
    The beach they take you to was great. Hundreds of pelicans diving in the water. Juanito was a great guide. The tour does start on the SE part of the Island so you'll have to find a way there.

    Julia_W, Apr 2022
    Very beautiful and fun tour. The tour guide was great. The only thing was we had somewhere to be after the tour and we didn’t leave the beach back to the cars at the time that was stated.
    Great day snorkeling

    Wonderful day on this trip with the crew. They were very friendly, communicated super well prior to the tour to get our food preferences & give directions, and made sure we had a great day. Saw lots of fish, had some delicious lunch including fresh scallops & fruit. Highly recommend it

    Awesome Tour!
    Edward_S, Jan 2022
    I and two friends had a fantastic trip with El Gecko tours on our Isla Tortuga Snorkeling Tour. The employees were super nice and informative. They made sure everyone on the tour had a great time. We were able to see many fish and sea turtles! And beautiful beaches!
    Great trip - highly recommend!
    Neil_R, Jan 2022
    Had a fab trip and they guys running it were awesome. Took us to both the lively beach where we played volleyball and hung out, as well as the quieter beach where we had a nice fruit meal. The snorkelling part was also fun. Really made an effort to ensure we had a good time, thanks!

    What an amazing day!
    Lola_H, Jun 2021
    We had an Amazing time with Juan and his friends. They took us snorkeling in various places around the island and also on amazing beaches. They really took care of us and treated us three like princesses. They were attentive to my dietary needs and we all shared a beer at the end. What a great experience! You can go with them with absolute certainty that it’s going to be amazing (moreover they are also one of the most affordable tour for isla tortuga).

    A Must Do Trip
    Matt_G, May 2021
    Great trip, we swam with tons of fish and Luis and our guides including his son were gracious hosts. We met up with some local fisherman and ate fresh oysters and scallops right off their ponga and washed it down with a fresh coco loco. Thanks for a great Mother’s Day memory. Pura Vida
    Cherie_A, Feb 2021

    Super journée, avec...
    Cline_L, May 2022
    Super journée, avec snorkeling, plage et repas. Les guides étaient supers. Par contre nous avons payé 145$ par personne alors que d'autre de l'excursion n'ont payé que 50$ par personne pour la même chose ! Nous sommes un peu énervés !
    Response from Host, May 2022
    We would like to thank you for your review, it seems you really enjoyed your day with us. As of the amount you paid for the tour, this is always $50 per person. It would be great if you could contact us directly, to talk about this issue, as we don't know who left this review. It sounds more like the price for 3 persons with a 10% down payment.
