We had a great trip with Emily and Leslie and we highly recommend this company. The spinner dolphins were amazing and the reef snorkeling was lots of fun as well.

An excellent experience! Jim and Leslie were fantastic guides and we were very lucky to witness at least 17 mantas at very close range. Best adventure ever!
