It was a very unique experience. We went with 2 kids; 9 & 2 years old, they enjoyed the boat ride. We felt safe with Guille for the whole time. He showed us beautiful places and he talked about the area and the animals. We saw 2 female and a ca 10 days old baby Humpback whale, mini rays and pelicans.

We enjoyed our whale-watching trip with Ro and Guille. After about 10-15 minutes we saw two pods of whales. Guille is a seasoned Capitan and knows his whales, he kept the required respectful distance. Thanks, we had good fun!

The tour was amazing! Although the weather conditions weren’t the best on that day, Guillermo provided an excellent experience for us. He’s very kind and fun, explained a lot of things about whales and we were able to see really many of them, and even some other animals in the sea. I strongly recommend this tour!

Guillermo was great! He knew the water well and also respected the whales. We were lucky to see whales 10 minutes in. The island is really nice and after snorkeling with Guillermo we got a chance to take lots of pictures on the beach. I would definitely recommend this experience.

We had a great time with Guille. It was the first day of tours and we really had to search but his persistence paid off as we saw the whales. We saw spectacular views of the various islands in the area and he answered every question presented to him. Great experience!

It was amazing experience. We could find groups of whales and at very closed distance. I strongly recommend this activity.
