This was an incredible tour! Perfect for those families who love and respect the ocean. The location was amazing and one of the most beautiful beaches. Our guide, Jo, was super knowledgeable, patient and excellent at getting us to the right place to see the most sea life. We hoped to see a few sea turtles but were super surprised to see and be so close to tons of sea turtles. She captured fantastic photos which were sent to us free of charge following the excursion. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
