The activity is great. Tour guide was great. I recommend confirming with the tour company directly after you book and confirm your pickup location. They ended up coming directly to the airbnb instead of the designated pick up area chosen on this app. Only thing is that the contact info here was outdated and didn't work. Had to do some Google diving and finally found the working number by clicking the contact us now button on their webpage..since the number listed on Google didn't work. Reached out to this app's customer service and didn't get any help or response. 😐. Also, it lists that you have the option of doing 7 or 12.. would've done 12, but we only did 6 or 7 I think. 12 wasn't an option.

It was a lot of fun! Make sure to bring water shoes or a few dollars to rent them though! There is a good amount of hiking involved but that was to be expected. Beautiful area and extremely nice people. Miacol was a great tour guide and very funny.

Was a wonderful day! Very long drive, however was worth it as we did have lots of whale sightings. Guide was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. Guide, driver and boat crew all worked hard and provided a terrific excursion. Great day!!

Babo and his crew make an unforgettable beautiful day! We laughed a lot, ate well, danced and were also able to have fun. Can only recommend the tour.

Care, organization, friendliness - and above all fish, fish, fish!!!
