Heavy seas ruined it
, Jun 2021
Guide Luis & Capt Willy were professional, friendly, and carrying. But we had 4-5 foot swells the whole time so, by the time we got to where the whale sharks were, 7 of the 10 people on the tour were seasick. There were at least 20 other boats for these same fish so we got at most 3 brief swims. My wife was too sick to go on more than one. I got a 2nd shot and saw a whale shark close up. But it was three hours of misery for 30 seconds of whale shark.
Awesome experience

This is an awesome experience, we saw probably over 100 Whale Sharks swimming from the surface of our boat, obviously when you are in the water you don’t see as much do to visibility so you’ll only see what’s like 30ft in front of you. It really is an amazing experience, my only disappointment, which is personal preference, is that I could easily stay in that water and snorkel for hours, even 30-45 minutes continuously. The times are set and limited as only 2 people can get in with the guide at once, which completely makes sense for safety and taking turns with the rest of the guests. I just felt limited on my time. Aside from personal preference and maybe a little selfishness...this is an amazing experience and the staff members were also extremely nice. They said they only allow people 2 jumps in the water but allowed me an another guest a third jump. So they went out of their way to let us get in again, which is awesome, but I still wish I could have stayed longer, I also think I was the only guest wanting to stay longer so I was outnumbered...
