We were family of 4 and only ones on afternoon trip. Picked up by Alphonse and he had all the energy and enthusiasm as though we were the only people on planet. His instructions on snorkeling/mask were the best we have ever received and it...More

Hi, The groups are pretty small. The smallest of the 3 tours we did was just 3 people and the largest was 7 people. 3 hours was the average. You probably wouldn't get sea sick doing Hol Chan, shark Ray alley, Mexico rocks or... More
