Absolutely amazing! We had the whole cove to ourselves and saw so many turtles. Our guide was awesome and took the time to teach us about all of the different fish and turtles we saw. She even took very nice photos of us and the sea life we saw, such a great added bonus. Highly, highly recommend.

Awesome adventure. My wife got really sea sick despite taking Dramamine. Our guide was super patient and helpful with my wife being sick. He gave us some great suggestions on what she could do in the future to help with the sea sickness. He gave us some great recommendations for other local activities and restaurants. The guide had dry storage for our phones/wallets. He provided water for us. We saw a variety of fish an several sea turtles.
