Viator Traveler's Reviews

We saw a sea horse, sea turtles and sharks along with lots of fish at the first snorkeling site. At the Tuneles site we saw Blue Footed Boobies. The second snorkeling site did not have much in the way of fish to see but was more of a site to view the lava formations. A good lunch of fresh tuna fish salad on rolls and fruit salad was provided. The guide, Darwin, was very helpful. He even helped each person who wanted to dive under to see the sharks swimming under the rock formations. I was amazed at the boat captian's skills with maneuvering the boat through the lava formations. Timing the waves and getting through the tight formations without so much as a single touch was a sight to witness.
