    A highly recommended experience, the tour departs from Las Canteras beach itself and surrounds the inner area of the natural rock barrier. The very nice and involved guide explained to us at all times the fauna and flora that surrounded us. Luckily, after going around for a while, we managed to see a manta ray apart from the different kinds of fish.

    It was my first time snorkeling and it was awesome. The instructor Juan was very friendly, made us feel comfortable and did everything we could to make us feel comfortable (both in the group and in the water). He was available and it was very pleasant. I recommend a thousand times!

    Unfortunately, only one person from the team could speak English, but neither of the other 2 diving instructors who came with us could. Nevertheless, wonderful care was taken, very loving handling & always concerned about customer satisfaction. We can recommend it, but unfortunately this activity is very weather dependent. We couldn't discover the whole splendor of the variety of fish in cloudy weather, but thank you very much for the experience and guidance. The guides definitely know what they are doing & understand something about the water! Very nice :)
