    What to Expect
    Meet up with your tour at the designated meeting place. Drive to Flamingo where the boat is waiting. Board the 38ft.(11.5m) boat to sail to Catalina Islands. Attend a short briefing with your snorkeling instructor on basic snorkeling and safety procedures, then it is time to get wet.  

    Take your first snorkeling session of the day. Enjoy approximately 45-minutes snorkeling in the beautiful bay. Return to the boat for a little snack of tropical fruits. Head out for your second snorkeling session. Keep an eye open for the rich marine life in this area. See dolphins, puffer fish, large schools of snappers, and sea turtles. Go back to the boat. Relax while on board as you sail back to the dock. Look for sea turtles, dolphins, and whales along the way. Reach land and head back to Tamarindo. Drop-off is at approximately 12pm to 12:30pm.

    This is not a place for snorkelers. The water is too deep. This company is also only focused on scuba divers. Our guide did not speak English and did not guide. He was there to help the scuba divers and did not help us. He kept leaving us as well, which didn’t matter as he was

    We are sorry to know you didn't enjoy our experience and would like to thank you for giving us your point of view. We would like to emphasize that the location is very appropriate for snorkeling too. We take many people daily and most of them come back very satisfied. As for our guides, they are trained and experienced but we will look into it immediately. Anyway, we will take good care of your suggestions in order to improve the service offered. All the best and Pura Vida

    I've been snorkeling 2 other times besides this time, both in Puerto Rico. This experience was quite different. Unfortunately, we went on a rainy day, so the waves were intense and large. However, the staff made the experience as great as they could. We were picked up and

    I can’t say enough good things about the people involved with this experience. All were enthusiastic, helpful, and knowledgeable. We were driven out to the beach where we got in a boat (about 8 people) that took us to a larger boat that took us to the island off of which we

    My husband and I enjoyed our 1/2 day out on the boat and open sea. The staff here have great personalities, a passion for the water, and we always felt safe. We really loved that this was a small group too, and didn't try to stuff too many of us on a boat. The only drawback I

    When I booked this tour, I was under the impression this was a snorkel tour. When we arrived to the dive shop, I learned we would be sharing the tour with divers which I have never had to do on a snorkel tour before. The boat is a small dive boat, with dive tanks taking up
