Tour was cancelled, no refund

The tour was cancelled at 6 am the day because they said the waters were murky. Tour was supposed to start at 7am. Since the tour didn’t actually happen, I asked for a refund (several times now) but no one has responded back. I’d like to get a refund because I had saved up my money to do this adventure and was already sad that the tour got cancelled, but now I can’t even get my money back.

Saw many turtles up close and got video and a ton of photos!

Amazing experience! The kayaking was fun. We had a tandem kayak in good condition. The instructions were good, and John the guide was funny, passionate about the turtles, and informative. We saw lots of turtles including up close. I had a go pro camera mounted to my snorkel mask and captured an awesome HD video with sound. I also used my iPhone 13 in a dry bag I bought on Amazon ant took many photos and video from my phone too. Turtles came up close, and in my case one literally swam so close I had to open my legs for it to swim through. Awesome experience and favorite thing so far this week by far! Highly recommend!!!

We had a party of 7 for this tour, ranging in ages from 10 to 60+. We all enjoyed the entire experience. It was awesome being in the ocean, kayaking and snorkeling. We didn’t see too many fish, but we saw several turtles and a very cool octopus! Our guide, Carlos, was fantastic. He was kind and patient. He explained everything clearly and we felt so comfortable and confident in him. Highly recommend this tour. Ask for Carlos!

Awesome trip. Carlos was an excellent guide. The kayaks were very stable and easy to get in and out of even after snorkeling. We went to 2 different areas and saw a bunch of turtles. Sooo much fun.
