Ramon and crew were terrific in guiding us when we swam with the whale sharks. The whale shark experience was extraordinary. We also snorkled on a reef and saw amazing reef fish. I would definitely book with Ramon again.

Good Evening I plan to visit the island between July 17th- 22nd. Can you help me with a few things: how do I get from the airport to the island? Please give me some suggestions as to places to stay. Are there small group tours or private tours. I want plenty of time to get some good underwater pictures/video of the whale sharks. Thank you.
