We must wear a vest but that does not interfere with the observation. There were 3 tours with the whale sharks so no observation of the barrier afterwards. It's a pity it would have to pass even quickly. The Island of Women is surprising for its tourism. The set is worth it but it is very expensive. Some had obtained a group rate of 120€. It would be nicer. Ditto if we were sent a photo with the whale sharks. Considering the price and that it costs them nothing... We fully exploit the tourist. The meal was good.

- Our guide Luisa was just great - together with the driver Speedy a funny humorous team - Luisa was able to give explanations in Spanish, English and German! (If necessary, she can speak other languages) - The food on the boat was freshly prepared by the captain and his son Luis and was delicious - There was no shortage of drinks - When booking the experience, our facility was not in the catchment area - GyG mediated everything perfectly between the organizer and us as the booker.

Amazing experience with these beautiful animals. Guide was top notch. Lunch delicious and swimming at playa norte a great wrap to the trip. We took our younger kids (8 and 10) who despite getting sea sick gave the experience two thumbs up. It was that memorable! Take a dramamine if you're prone as you are going to open waters.

Great tour not to be missed. The captain and his companion were knowledgeable and really cool.

It was wonderful and had a great time. Saw some sea turtles also And beautiful sights
