Folicking Fun

The crew was excellent in helping us enjoy this wonderful ecosystem. When a superpod of common dolphins were close, after diving, they took us out in the Zodiaks (Pangas) to snorkle with them and see them up close. Great food, presented well with gracious accomodations for special diets. They were always courteous and kind, on the boat and in the water Also, sea lions

Sea Lions and Whale Sharks

Best parts were diving and interacting with the sea lions. We also had a long snorkel with the Whale Sharks which was quite memorable. The crew was fantastic and food was very good too. In addition black coral forests were fantastic along with nudibranchs and other sea life. Overall an excellent trip.
