Basically okay! Transport rough, boat good and the crew very helpful and enthusiastic. Snorkeling experience was fun and safe. Big well done to the swimming crew who helped the disabled trippers enjoy the experience fully. Drink great and plentiful Overall good but expensive as are all in Punta Ca

I thoroughly enjoyed the boat ride and the staff. They were terrific. The only drawback for us was that the tour did not allow you to go down toward the sharks or rays. You were given a flotation belt that prevented you from leaving the surface of the water; not true snorkeling.

The staff was awesome, but my family and I really needed a little training before we began using our equipment. Maybe let those who did not know how to snorkel to do it from the shore line - with assistance. I also wished we swam with more than one shark. Having sharks in a cage next door in the water is not swimming with sharks. Again, the staff was awesome and entertaining on the boat.

It was good to see a nurse shark and a ray but time is limited in the tank and most of the excursion involved us sailing pointlessly around on the boat. Not worth the money and I wouldn't recommend this to anyone else

The crew was fun but I wish I had known that I had to climb up a 4foot ladder to get back in the boat. Then I wouldn't have wasted my money on this one. If I could have actually done the snorkeling it might have been fun

We had so much fun on this excursion! Our guide took my camera and got us some really amazing pics, I really appreciated that because it would have been hard to keep up while trying to take pics! Everybody was very friendly and spoke many languages. Saw some cool fish, sharks, and even held a ray!
Fantastic day! I would recommend...

Fantastic day! I would recommend this - not for smaller children. A lot of swimming and activity. The crew was fabulous friendly and very up beat! The boat was spotless and the crew constantly mopped the floors and kept everything immaculate. There was a photographer on board - were able to view and buy pictures after if you wanted to. Fresh sandwiches were served along with drinks no alcohol until after snorkeling.
