We hope you realized you did not just go Snorkeling but you went diving :) Anyways, we are happy you enjoyed it so much. Next time your youngest daughter will be more relaxed and enjoy it as much as you did. We would be very happy to take you diving again.

This was a fantastic outing. We were picked up from our hotel (very helpful since we did not have a car). A quick trip to their office to sign waivers and pick up gear (They help you find the correct size). Remó loves diving and it shows in the passion he displayed for the

Thank you so much for reviewing us. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the day even you got sea sick. The fish you are mentioning are the corner fish and yes, the other one is really called milk fish. Apparently when you cook the latter it will make the water look like milk and that's where it got it's name from. Might be just rumors but that's what we heard :)

Booked last minute. First time my hubby dove and I snorkeled in same boat. We each had a great time. The guides took good care to be sure we were all safe and enjoying ourselves. Saw many fish I had never seen before Excellent experience.

I now know why they have all good reviews! We are a mixed group of advanced diver, dive curious kids and a snorkeling mom. They were able to accommodate everyone and keep us together. It was a beautiful boat ride out. They take care of all the equipment, provide drinks, snacks
