I'm so glad we did this excursion! I just happened to stumble upon their website, and glad we booked. We first went out with Rob who took us out to find and swim with some sea turtles.They were so beautiful! We got to see a ton of different fish including puffers and barracuda!

We booked the whale shark experience and although seeing the whale sharks was pretty cool, the overall experience was pretty subpar. They charge major money so I feel like they have to add the turtle and isla mujeres part to make people feel that they got their money’s worth.
