Wow. What an experience. Truly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done. Our guide was informative, fun and really friendly. We found the sharks (between 3-5) so quickly when we arrived in the area different ones. When we first arrived there were around 20 boats but within 5 minutes they’ve all disappeared and we were the only boat - we had the sharks to ourselves! I would recommend requesting a late morning trip to avoid all the other boats! The food was great and the crew were all helpful. HIGHLY recommend taking travel sickness medicine beforehand as the sea is really rocky even on a clear day! They also provide this on the tour. The sharks were MUCH faster than expected and you really need to swim FAST to even try to keep up with them. What an amazing experience.

Phenomenal!!!! He greatly exceeded my expectations, our guide Mauricio has a lot of knowledge and you can see that he loves what he does since at all times he was very attentive and answered our questions, my children had a great time and although it was a very tiring trip we had fun like crazy I highly recommend the tour because we did what we decided and we were not subject to a closed itinerary. I highly recommend Get your guide since it is not the first time that we have used the application and it always leaves us with a good taste in our mouths.

15min transfer from Ferry Pier Playa del Carmen, group of 14 pax (we were the last ones). Very motivated guide in the park, great tour in the jungle park, also suitable for children. Very detailed introduction. Easy tour packed with activities. Photos at the end can be bought for around 59 dollars (good image quality). Gladly again!

Our guide and partner were very friendly and professional. It was an amazing birthday celebration. The water was choppy so we didn't get to see all the underwater sculptures. Next time!! Thank you!

Our tour guide Sixto was very fun and informative. We got some great pictures taken thanks to the photographer.
