Our instructor, Cynthia, and our boat driver, Rafael were amazing to work with! They were extremely knowledgeable about the fishies, wild life, and towns around us! They made us feel extremely safe the entire time. They even took pictures of us on our phones, free of charge! Most other adventure companies would charge for that. I really appreciated the knowledge and the professionalism of both of them. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone looking to explore Yelapa and snorkel to see colorful fish! We even saw a huge sea turtle! 10/10!
