    It was so good that we are going back in September to Mexico and taking this tour again. Guides were good, food was good and the sights were wonderful.

    Thank you for your kind words Cocoa! Although in September we don't operate public tours to give a good maintenance to our catamarans and yachts, come back in October! Best regards.

    This trip was awesome, this crew was very professional and seasoned. Captain Pablo led a tight ship. The crew led us into the snorkeling area with ease. And the photographer was top notch.

    Hello Midnightgaiden, Thank you so much for your kind words! Yes, the dry season is better for snorkeling, but summer is less crowded, and a bit cheaper ;-) However, you will be very welcomed all year long! Best regards.

    I believe she would. Keep in mind there is so much more than snorkeling, it is a perfect way to spend your day.

    Unfortunately, I did not see any blue footed boobies. Maybe I was looking in the wrong direction.
