Great snorkelling experience and organisation
, Sep 2021
I had a great time snorkelling. I walked to the shop but couldn't find it; when I called someone came out to meet me. Everyone was very kind and cheerful. Things were well organised: the paperwork, fitting of mask and other snorkelling gear, the drive to the beach, the boat ride to the reef etc. My instructor was very friendly, patient and positive. The experience itself was amazing. I saw so many different sea creatures and was very impressed.

Personal reef tour
, Aug 2021
Great people to take you out to see the reef and every minute was a total joy. Very relaxing with knowledgeable people around you to make you feel safe. It was a little tricky finding the place but they were very understanding and weren’t sticky on the time.
Awesome overall experience!

This was an awesome trip! We even got lucky enough to see a cuttle fish changing color. The owners were the nicest people and very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
Was left stranded
, Jul 2021
I’m not sure if this is a different experience from others because this was during COVID so the company decided to combine multiple activities into one but it was a terrible experience. From the start, the area we went to was on the streets of Mexico, obscured and looks very worn down. Not by the beach. After we finally located it, the manager was friendly but all the instructors did not know who was going where. We were transported to the beach by a pick up truck and some people were snorkeling and some were scuba diving. Here’s the kicker.. the boat left us snorklers and stayed with the other group. We were stuck in the middle of the ocean with no option to get out of the water and our guide was trying to get the attention of the boat for 20-30 minutes. By the end everyone was exhausted and could not believe there was no option to get out if you wanted to. Never mind the panic that you were being pulled out farther and farther to the ocean without an option. The guide also did not show us any areas where there were cool things to see. We were at the reef but nothing really around. The day before, we went fishing and the fishing guides took us snorkeling afterwards in an area close to where we were at, and they had fish bait to lure the fish. We even got to see some turtles. But this guide did not do any of that and had left us stranded. Highly would recommend going with a more established company and paying more so you’re not left stranded on the ocean.
Excellent experience!

This was a fantastic trip for such a reasonable price! I would highly recommend going. We decided against getting one of the really pricey packages through the resort we were staying with , and instead purchased this snorkeling trip for a fraction of the price. I am so glad we did! This was an amazing trip, the staff was so friendly and knowledgeable, and it was apparent that this was simply what they were passionate about, and so they simply were sharing their passion with us! If you are considering getting this package get it! You won't be dissapointed!

Nice time
, Jul 2019
The reefs are very healthy and beautiful. They are not as colorful as I thought they would be. It is because of the shallow water and full sun. The guide was Al, former US marine. He was passionate and knowledgeable. Easy level, 2-3 hours trip, makes it a perfect afternoon entertainment.
Snorkeling with blue dream.
, Jun 2019
Very professional outfit. We had 2 guides. One leading and one at the end of our group of 6 making sure we were safe. We were taken to a shallow Reef so it was easy to see the coral which still had some colour, a rarity the do sadly.
