I traveled to Drake Bay in March, and was fortunate enough to go on 2 dolphin tours hosted by Sierra and Coco (The Divine Dolphin). The tours were an experience of a lifetime, and I know I will be back. I think back on these days so fondly - they were truly magical. Sierra is so

Hi Laura, thank you so much for your fantastic review. You were only here in March but it seems like a lifetime ago with all that has happened since then with the pandemic. I am glad you came when you did. It was awesome to spend time with you and show you our marine wonderland. We hope to see you again after the world settles on a "new normal." Take care and Oceans of Love.

Sierra is a knowledgeable and detailed guide with a deep connection to the ocean. The day I took the Divine Dolphin tour there were no other people booked. Despite this, Sierra took me out on her boat and spent her time and energy teaching me about the ocean, pointing out

You can do no better than take this full tour with Sierra and Coco, two real life mermaids, who will take you far out, away into the ocean and away from all you've ever known to see pods of playful bottlenose and agile Spinner dolphins, leaping tuna, diving birds, rays and more.

The dolphin tour was amazing. We started with an 8am pick up from our hotel, returning almost 3pm. It started off pretty quiet, almost an hour before we saw dolphins. We went 35 miles out, and saw THOUSANDS of dolphins! We had a school of cheeky, playful Bottlenoses riding in
