Cancelled due to wind advisory. Most of the other kayak groups still went out with the understanding that the tour might be altered slightly. Wind was pretty calm when we were there watching the other groups go out
Wish we could of been given that option. It was our last day so could not be rescheduled.

Great Tour
Andreas was our guide and he was full of energy and excited for us to experience kayaking and snorkeling yet was very considerate of our safety. We saw plenty of turtles, the main goal, and other aquatic life. I highly recommend this tour.

Great location to see turtles. Carlos also took pictures which was great to Document our adventure
Carlos was great. Very knowledgeable. He was very attentive and made sure all guests were comfortable and safe. He didn’t just drop us off but was in the water with us and pointed out the turtles.

Safe and Good Experience!
Sep 2021
John canceled our first scheduled trip because wind was not safe. He has experience to know. I saw other trips try to go and then come in early.
The wind picked up at end of trip we did make it out on (next day) and one couple capsized. John was there in an instant to save the day. Seeing the octopus was very cool but it is probably better to not have so many people handling it. Snorkeling and kayaking-- what a great combo! Thank you, John!
