Had an excellent experience, our guides were awesome and patient, even with one annoying tourist. Well worth the time and money; humbling, saw jumping Manta Ray, Flamingos, Dolphins and yes the Whale sharks. Served up awesome ceviche, sandwiches and cold drinks. Highly recommend!!!

Our family of four had a great time with Willy's tours. Guides were professional and courteous. First day was a choppy 90 minute ride each way....a bit hard on the neck but worth it. Local guides have it to a science on how to position...More

Visiting the shark whale and the coral reef is a must thing to do on this precious virgin island. Teo makes the best ceviche in Holbox! Enjoy!
