We looked quite a while for a snorkelling trip to Cano Island on a boat with a bathroom. This trip was so much more than expected. Not only did we snorkel off of Cano island, we also snorkelled right inside the southern tip of the whale's tale. On the way to Cano Island, we had several dolphins lead the boat while we were underway. Lunch in Drake Bay and we finished the day will some fishing for Mackeral. We caught 5 which our guide filleted for us.

Before we (my husband, myself and two friends) began our early morning fishing excursion with Carlos, his wife warmly greeted us and started us off with a cup of coffee. Then we set out with Carlos and his crew of 2 others on his large, powerful boat (with a toilet!). They worked hard work and gave their best efforts regarding the fishing, and they went beyond that to make sure that the day turned out to be lots of fun They took us whale-watching, where we saw a mother, baby and large male humpback whales. Then they took us snorkeling - (The snorkels and masks were fabulous - they did not fog up or take in any water!). Carlos was flexible, fun and enthusiastic the entire time - he kept us out longer than originally scheduled. An added bonus was lots of yummy food that he had prepared for us. We all had a great time.

My husband and I did kayaking and snorkeling with Anner. Since no one else happened to be in our group, Anner was very flexible and we were fortunate to kayak out to whale's tale to snorkel for quite a while and then finish up with a serene paddle through the mangroves. His enthusiasm and friendliness made the whole experience even better. Great, great, great time!

We had an amazing time Rappelling multiple waterfalls! We felt that safety was so important to Annar and he took the time to coach and explain—we never felt rushed. He quickly caught on that we are a group that likes to joke and play and he fell right in with us. At the final waterfall we swam and ate wonderful snacks of empanadas and hot chocolate. We could not have enjoyed the trip more; don’t miss out on this experience!

Had a great experience with Annar! His enthusiasm was terrific. Kayaking the Mangrove, to the whale’s tail, finishing with a coconut opening was all great fun! A great time was had by all!
