our family rented the boat for 10. Four children from 6 to 13. They were all experienced swimmers and know how to follow directions. There was mutual respect between the guests and crew.

Hi we are planning a trip to Mexico soon however we've been told the Whale Sharks have now left the area for the summer. Can you advise the best time of year to see these animals?

HI The migratory animals, the whale sharks, are in our region from early-mid June to late August.
Hello, I would like to make the tour in one of the days that I will be in Holbox (6th or 7th of september). How can I book? Thanks!
